Welcoming in 2018

Some years I stay up to watch the new year arrive. There have been years when I have nursed a sick child (a lot of those) and have been awake to welcome the New Year. This year....the princess was in bed (asleep), hubby has a bad cold and I was exhausted. My bed welcomed me at 10:30 PM. That doesn't mean I can't wake up and say, Happy New Year!

I'd say it's a sign of age, but my husband and I rarely stayed up to ring in the new year when we were young. Have a healthy and happy 2018!

Happy New Year to you as well. I was asleep early last night too. By 7:30-8, I was tired and pretty much in bed.

That is 50+ quilt squares pinned to my design wall. They have since been sewn together and I have a different quilt on my design wall.

I was not getting sleep that night so was very much awake and passing my time online. I spent quite a bit of time on mylot that night.

If you aren't sleeping, Mylot can be a good place to be.

@Morleyhunt Yes you are right. I am very often here on Friday and Saturday nights. Rest of the days I have to sleep early to wake up next morning to work.

We did the same, we came back from Italy a little before 7 pm. The dinner was ready, I dressed the table and we had a nice and quiet dinner. We watched a movie but by 10:30 pm we were tired and we went to sleep.

We rarely stay up to ring in the new year. One memorable New Years Eve, New Years Day we welcomed a baby girl at 11:56 PM on December 31.

@Morleyhunt I don't know where you find the patience. I sighed the first time the teacher told us to do one piece for her to mark (a fashion design course!). I did my best, and my best was awful. I am just not gifted in this area. (My embroidery was awful too .)

@YrNemo my sewing teacher from highschool would have told you I was the least likely student to sew another stitch. My project was horrible. I didn't enjoy it and managed to get one panel of my skit inside out and upside down. That was an accomplishment.

Sometimes sleep seems much more important than seeing in the new year.

Sleep generally rates far above staying up to ring in the New Year. Hope that you and your family have a happy and healthy 2018.

@Morleyhunt The intestinal bug took a while to shake, but I'm pretty much back to normal...except for some lingering snot issues.

I think that Happy New Year works before the actual stroke of midnight as well as after it. Now if you wish people that too far either way, you might get some strange looks. Happy 2018!

I'm pretty flexible. It's writing the date that will trip me up a time or two. Hope you and your family have a healthy and happy 2018!

Thank you John! It was a good day. I watched the Parade. I saw the Burlington Teen Tour Band...but couldn't identify my grandson from the crowd. All the best wishes for a healthy and happy 2018!
