We will be staying in. I, like you, think my dancing days are behind me, especially with how the old joints hurt more this time of year. Plus there are alot of crazies out, and I just feel safer at home. Plus I couldn't stay up to midnight if you paid me:) I usually wake up for a second while others are hooting and hollering, but thats about it. Pretty sad, huh???

If I feel OK, we are going to go to a section of town where they have a big outside party. There is food (won't eat any) and drinks (won't drink any). They block off the streets, and play music and then at midnight they have a ball drop. It's a lot of fun. But it's all dependent on how I feel...

Hi Nanners sometimes I can stay awake and sometimes I cain't but never too old to hoot and holler even though it's not as loud .One thing I won't be doing is banging my new stainless steel pots around hmmm I think frying pans might do. lol gail

My night consists of going out to dinner with my wife and sister and b-in law. I think then it depends on how we all feel afterwords as to if we go to my sisters house and play cards and have a few drinks and bring in the New Year or go home and crash before the ball drops. Kinda up in the air on after dinner...

Happy New Year to all of you!!
Be safe!!

I probably will stay home and study because I am just that exciting...My fiance has to work on New Year's day anyway so we'll most likely watch the ball drop and then go to sleep :) I don't mind though. Parties were never really my thing.

Well, since I have to get up very early to go to the Rose Parade I guess I will have to go to bed before midnight for the first time ever! Then again maybe not. I think I will keep my two left feet firmly tucked next to me while I watch a movie or two and eat even more junk!!!

I stayed in. I may be 27 but I feel like my dancing days are over.
27/f/CD. 4 CD related surgeries: 2 resections, 2 JP drains, 3 NG tubes, many absesses (including the one my most recent surgery scraped off my ovary) and fistulas.
Currently trying to figure out hip and knee joint pain.
Have lost in these surgeries: appendix, 8 in. intestine, R fallopian tube, gallbladder, 10 in. intestine
Crohns Dx'd: February 2008.
Pentasa (and much mental screaming)

Trying to hang in there until January so I'll have some insurance and can visit a rheumy, neuro, GI, primary, pain control, and possibly a shrink so I could stop crying and living in my own lil pity party. :-P

We stay home on New Year's Eve. My dad always referred to it as "amateur night". He said that people who weren't used to drinking were out drinking and driving. Professional drunks like him stayed home and off the streets

It's one of the few reasonable things he's ever said.
