Happy New Year! In my virtual Knitters' New Year's Party, I'm giving you ALL a big hug -- not just my eldest, headed off for London in less than two weeks, and her very good friend who we went to hear "spin" tonight and who said, "Where's your mom?" thinking that I was one of her friends and not her mom (I don't live for that, but I don't mind) -- and we're ALL drinking big-ass Margaritas.
I am one of Katie's friends, but mostly, I'm her mom -- and she needed me to accompany her, since she isn't 21, but she wanted me to, too. It was sweet. I had fun. I wished I was younger and still felt invincible and that there was a dance floor, but I'm not, and there wasn't, and I didn't, so I didn't embarrass anyone or smoke or... anything. Except, I really didn't need TWO grande margaritas.
Anyway, a big slo0py new yea'rs kiss to you all -- and that little bit of margarita on your shoulder? I'm sure it's mine. I spill while celebrating all the time.
Was telling Katie tonight about how I used to Love watching Dick Clark's New Yea'rs Rockin' Eve... it would be just a little bit disappointing every year, but always just tantalizing enough to tune in the next, anyway. We used to go to my aunt & uncle's near Marshfield every New Year -- the adults would go snowmobiling/bar-hopping and I'd stay and watch Dick Clark and the kids and Three Dog Night (or whoever). I can't help but get warm fuzzies, no matter what, except maybe this year.
Love you all. Can't believe how much.
Happy New Year! Best to you in '06. Cheers.
