But as it turns out, being at home like losers is where it's at. At least when you have kids. My kids have never made it to midnight and I don't even think they are aware that people party until midnight (and beyond), so we try to find fun things to do during the day. This year they chose to go roller skating because as it turns out, my kids are roller skating fiends. Which seems so weird and random to me, but whatever. I'm down to watch you skate and fall on your ass.
It was just as I imagine the gates of Hell sounding like.
My kiddos got coupons for free admission and then a free soda. Olivia won $5 from a door prize drawing. Overall they had a great time and went home exhausted, which was a double win. They had asked me if we were going to do anything "fun" over break because "everyone" in their class was doing fun stuff. I hadn't planned on anything because A) we're broke and B) everyone has been sick. So this was it, our one big outing over Christmas break. I told Matt maybe I can rally and do a fun thing for Spring Break or something. We'll see.
So that was our New Year's. No big partying over here. As per usual. ;)
