My husband usually works New Years Eve, in fact, he only has it off every 7th year, so I spend mine with the kids. I let them all stay up late, we sit and have our own traditions. I buy a few bottles of sparkling cider/sparkling white grape juice and we have to have party hats, noise makers, confetti , etc and we sing, dance , play games until 11:45 and then we turn on one of the tv shows that have the ball drop, and we start whooping it up the last few minutes of the countdown and then we get real quiet for the last few seconds- at midnight we call daddy and wish him Happy New Year and then grandma- of course, we all wish each other one during all of this and then after our toast of sparkling cider/grape juice, it's off to bed for the kids......

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
