New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean a fancy night out to dinner and then a huge party with friends, drinks and loud music for this parent. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had such a celebration on the last night of the year. Maybe that’s why, with four kids in tow, I’m not terribly resentful that my plans for the night include a homemade dinner, sparking grape juice, a dvd and leftovers from a 6 pack of pear cider (my fave) for the hubby and me.
Everything in due time. It’s a good lesson for me. Be patient. Enjoy every moment. Take my time. If I can’t enjoy it, change my perspective until there’s something to be grateful for.
I’ll toast to that, if we’re still awake.
