I think once you reach a certain age the idea of New Years Eve becomes exhausting! It also seems my baby sitter has more of a life then me and she needs the night off. So the idea of staying up (or even going out) till past midnight to get up with 2 kids in the morning is just exhausting to think about! My kids also have a day off from school tomorrow so I KNOW they will be up before the sun is.And why is it on a regular day they cant wake up at 6:30 am but on a day off they are up around 5:30?!
I decided that I am going to celebrate New Years but in my way! I am much more of a dairy fan than a meat eater, so I am not going to wait until Shavous, I am breaking out my dairy dishes tonight! I also decided to try and transform my dining room/living room into an elegant restaurant. I also couldn’t choose from all my dream dishes what to make so, so I am going to do it “tapas” style (or in a way that leaves tons of leftover’s for the next week!
