Dropping the ball on the big ball drop

New Year

I’ll admit that we aren’t very cool New Year’s celebrators.  I’ve always thought it to be a highly overrated night.  Probably because I have to fight to make it to midnight each year and by the time we reach the ball drop I’ve been nibbling on appies and sweets for so long that I feel disgusting.

We tried to do a big night out once when the hubs and I were just dating.  He got a migraine so we rang in the New Year in his Honda Civic in an underground parking lot waiting for our friends to be ready to leave.  He was sleeping.  I was feeling sorry for myself.  Good times.

The past few years we’ve gone to low-key shin digs at friends houses but we’re always the super lame guests that watch the ball drop and before auld lang syne is even finished one verse we have our shoes on and are saying our goodbye’s at the door.

So I’m curious.  What do you do for New Years?  Do you celebrate in grand fashion or are you lame like us?  Do you have family traditions or a specific meal that you have each year?  I think it might be time to start some traditions to cure our families current New Years reputation but I need some help.  Would you mind leaving me a comment letting me know what you do?  Or what your best or worst New Years held?  I’d really appreciate it!
