Happy New Year! How was your New Year's Eve and New Year's Day? I hope no matter what you did, that you had a lovely time! I am thankful for all the invites I got to go out NYE - (5 total) , however I stayed in. Very large crowds upset me, and I am scared of drunks on the road later. Additionally at some of the events, it would have been only the host that I knew, so maybe not the most comfortable. Of course, how else does one meet new people? Anyway, I stayed in with my parents. We watched the "Twilight Zone" marathon and the ball drop. I made it up until midnight even though the after effects of a head cold kept me a bit more subdued than usual. New Year's day I stayed with my parents, we went out to eat and a fantastic restaurant, came home watched TV. However today I am feeling totally well - and it is back to the grind. I have some goals in - I'm calling them goals, not resolutions this time - and will share those once I get a more cohesive grip on them. Tell me about your New Years activities and goals Photo: Mine

Good that you stayed safely at home, I do not make new years resolutions, promises are meant to be broken so I would just strive to make this a better year.

I'm glad you had a good New Year's Eve and Day. I stayed in and went to bed early, even though I intended to stay up late. The problem with holidays is you misplace what day it is. When I realized it was Saturday, I had to get to bed early or miss church or the possibility of missing church. That's not an option. So I went to bed early and was up in time for church yesterday.

Oh that's a good point there too. I find that I'm a night owl - so midnight actually wasn't a big thing, though I may change my tune if I needed to be up early. I hope you had a good Church service.

@FayeHazel I'm a night owl too. Church was great! We have two services and I like going to the early one, and now that I'm doing coffee, I need to be at the early one. The first service was thin. You could see who stayed up late by how empty it was. I'm sure the second service was packed.

I visited some bars - my goals are the same as ever, find work, sell my writing, find romance.

Goals really do sound better than resolutions to me too. Our son and his wife moved into their new condo on New Year's Eve day and the next day. We did light duty since our son's friends did the heavy stuff. I hope they stay put for a very long time.

Well, part of me wants to quit smoking, but part of me doesn't.
