 :confused: hmm, lets see.... well, i close tonite... does that count as 'going out'?  :dmblaf:  and i'm still sick.... does doing nyquil shots count as drinking?  :dmblaf:  But unless i'm coughing my hiney off, i plan to be asleep at midnite.

as a kid we used to follow a tradition, you put a silver dollar outside on new years eve, then after midnite, you carry it in (it must be in your hand, not your pocket) and this means you will be bringing money into the house all year.... well, once i grew up and got married, i kinda forgot about the tradition. so then in 96, i suggested to my hubby, ' hey! let's do this..." and sure enough, on 12-31-96, we put out our coins. then after midnight we carryed them in. Then in May, my dad died and left me some insurance money. that was NOT what i meant. so we didnt do it for years. then in 2002, the kids remembered the tradition, so we did it that new year's eve. In 2003 we lost my FIL, my mom, and my step dad. But they had all been sick for quite a long time, we could hardly blame a silly superstition. So after a few years of forgetting it, we'd think about it round christmas and then forget about it til round mid jan. So the year i left Lee, 2007, i had the kids on new year's eve (he was partying) so the kids and i put our coins out in my new yard. After all, i had lost almost everyone anyway. So then in March of 2008, Lee died. i dont put coins out anymore. it is waaaaay, too 'monkey's paw' kinda thing.  :deer:  every now and again, the kids will joke about putting a coin out and i respond with "hey! are you trying to knock me off??? no coins!"  :dmblaf:

but the other superstitions my mom taught me, on new year's eve: you must have cash money in your wallet and money in your bank account, you must have a clean house, if you are sick on new year's eve, you will be sick all year. And dont do laundry on New Year's day, you'll wash away your good luck.  Well, i do my best to follow them. kinda sucks me being sick, but whatcha gonna do? unfortunately my house will NOT be spotless tonight, but it'll be straightened a bit. i have a bit of money in my wallet, tho i usually dont carry cash.

so i'm doing the boring old crazy bird lady new years.  :smile3:

once we had kids, we decided that staying up for new years was insanity!! sleep was/is too precious!!! soooooo we always have nummy snackies and watch a movie.
it will either be : columbiana, Book of Eli, or indiana jones and the crystal skull... snackies tonights are: cheeze dip (jalapeno and pepper jack, montery jack and cheddar for him, cheddar, asiago, montery jack, and a lil bit of cheez whiz ( i know I know ) for me, with Tostitos for dippin, and strawberry cheesecake ice cream for him (or apple pie, he can't decide lol) and cookie dough ice cream for yours truly. I got sparkling cider too  :handshappy:.. it is the best way to spend new years IMHO, at midnight they fire CANNONS   :deer: as well as fireworks in the city and it wakes us (and the residents of the graveyards down the road!  :dmblaf: ) up at midnight, so technically I never miss it. LOL!!

I hope to God this year is better, we had some awesomeness this year, but the bad stuff was pretty bad.. so here is looking to this year and the silver linings!!!  :towel: :towel:

Omg so good.

 1pound of Jalepenos cut in half and seeds removed

1 block of cream cheese

1 cup (or more) of either parmesan or mozerella

1 pound of sausage (I used pork sausage rather than Italian)

Brown sausage
Mix together the cheeses, add the sausage to the cheeses once its cookes

Preheat oven to 425

Fill peppers with the sausage/cheese mix

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly

These are not very spicy, though you do get a kick here and there.

i worked last nite til 1030. got home and Darla had been sick, so i got to mop my kitchen floor at 11 last nite.  :slaph:  then the pepto and the pedialyte for the little girl. i couldnt find my big syringe so i had to use a tiny 10mm syringe to give her the pepto.  :headhammer: finally gave up and just poured the cup in her mouth. then i wiped up the floor again.  :dmblaf:  then finally to bed about 1130 or so. i REALLY didnt want to see midnite, i was tired and feeling icky. BUT my lovely neighbors were VERY excited about the new year and set off fireworks.  :slaph: so i didnt miss it either, wishy. Finally bout 12 20, they went back to their party and i went back to sleep.

My oh my! Those jalepenos look soooooooooo good! I'm gonna try those when I get some extra cash!

Tonite for our first meal of the New Year we're gonna have T-Bone steaks, salad, baked potateos and shrimp cocktail. The steaks were marked down to $7.51 for both and they weigh 1 & 3/4 pounds. I had the shrimps and taters, so why not go all out!  :dinner:

we had ourselves a little new year's outting. it was great! we have a visiting manager who wanted to meet skittles, so i took him in to work this morn for a little visit. he enjoyed it for the most part. when we first got there our cosmetics girl insisted on walking up and trying to touch skittles,  :pullhair:  which got her a nip and a yell and made him nervous. But after i made it clear that i wouldnt let anyone else touch him, he mellowed out a bit. he really didnt talk much today. which could have been any of several reasons or the combination of them all: nancy touching him right away, we went outside cause a customer wanted her mom to see him and he spotted a hawk in the sky (we went back inside at that point), he didnt get a good nite's sleep last nite, and his least favorite person was at the store. but i know he enjoyed himself cause when i started to leave he leaned away from the door.  :dmblaf:  then when we got home, he wanted to stay outside for a bit. he even got on the ground and walked around in the grass for a few minutes. Now he's high on his favorite swing calming down from his exciting morning and dozing. yay skittles!  :handshappy:  he's doing so well!

What a great way to start the New Year!  I'm glad he (and you) had such a good morning.

Nancy, Huh? I worked with a Nancy that would do the same thing. I took Powder in one day and of course she had to attempt to touch him even though I told her no. Poor Nancy almost peed herself because just as she reached out to touch Powder he screamed   his Cockatoo scream and fluffed himself wayyyyyyyyy up!  :laffhrd: Every time I took Powder in after that she ran into the back room and hid, served her right though.  :smile3:

Some people!  :dknow:  Glad Skittles ended up having a wonderful day.  We had a great dinner...the chix was so tender it was amazing.  Did not see midnight as I knew I wouldn't and today just puttering around the house.
