    I am in Gettysburg with my husband's family. We have two houses on a working farm. Each family brought 2 appetizers and we will supplement with pizza for kids (13 - 23) if they want it. I am not into football but we have several who are, and multiple TVs. And lots of wine.

    H and I decided years ago to just make ourselves a nice dinner and stay home. Now that H has both a smoker and a good grill, we''re set as far as food goes. He is smoking a prime rib from one of the best butchers in town, and grilling vegetables to go with it, and those who are not low-carb will also have loaded baked potatoes. I'm trying to replicate a blue cheese sauce from our favorite steakhouse, while H is making a horseradish sauce for himself. He will have his favorite microbrew and I have a little split of champagne.

    Sseakid is going with friends to see one of them dance at church-I'm not happy about them being on the road on New Year's Eve though. We will stay up until she's home, which should be about 1 a.m., which is WAY past our bedtime. At least we can all sleep in tomorrow.

    Make sure you're not mixing the antibiotics Flagyl (metronidazole), Tindamax (tinidazole) and Bactrim (trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole) with alcohol. Violent vomitting can occur.

    We're having another couple over for appetizers and drinks and then heading out to a 7:15 dinner reservation. We never make it until midnight.

    Dinner out with D1 and the bf, then home to binge watch! This is the first time I can remember that it won't be ridiculously cold outside. There may be fireworks at midnight (usually do, sometimes don't, and I don't feel like checking.) I can sort of see them from the back window, though the house behind us blocks most of it. Still, I stand there for a minute or two, to see what I can.

    I've made meatballs, buffalo chicken dip, fried cheese and a veggie tray. I'm sure we will watch football all night. (4 boys and 2 men and me) I may sneak upstairs with a glass of Chardonnay and my new thriller. All of you sound much more exciting than me. ☺️

    My moms in the hospital so I'm here in Florida with her so H and I are going to have a FaceTime date. I told him no later than 9pm because I'll be asleep after that. It's exhausting sitting in a hospital all day.

    Toledo, thanks, good warning for everyone - drug metabolism is one of my specialties. ;) There will be a ton of dancing and maybe two sips of bubbly at midnight. The meds I am taking are OK, but I am taking no chances. :)

    D1 rented a house out in Hamptons with her friends. D2 is going to a NYE party. We were going to cook a dinner at home before she went out, but I decided we should get dressed to go out for a nice NYE dinner in NYC. We are pre-gaming right now with my favorite champagne - the Veuve. I will be in my PJs by 9 tonight to watch the the ball drop.

    Happy New Year!

    This will be year 17 of getting together with the same group of neighbors. It started when we all had young kids, who played in the basement while the parents had a party upstairs, and everybody could walk home. A few have moved outside the neighborhood and a few have moved in and joined the party, but mostly the same group. Great to have old friends and watch the kids turn into adults.

    We'll wander on over around 9 with an appetizer and champagne. We used to send the kids out with sparklers at 11 pm CST (midnight on the east coast with the ball drop on TV) and tell them that was midnight. Now we hope they'll all get home safely from wherever they are. We still do fireworks at CST midnight, which DH provides every year. The local flooding made getting to the fireworks store an adventure, but failure was not an option. Just hope we manage to set them off without any attention from the local authorities. No risk of fire this year.

    Safe and happy New Year to all.

    emilybee,

    I fully understand what you went through today. Hope a new year brings your family peace and health.

    It's 8:24 PM and I just got home from the hospital. My wife had a doctor's appt today and discovered she has pneumonia in both lungs so off we went to the emergency room. My son had to pinch hit for me and finish making our first pizza with dough made in the bread maker we bought each other for Christmas. So I'm chewing on crunchy crust waiting for my wife to call me from her room tonight.

    Have A Happy New Year!

    Just got home today from a cruise , so I've had enough late night partying to last me quite a while (lots of fun, but I need a vacation from my vacation now!). Tonight will be a quiet evening at home...probably find a movie to watch.

    @bookworm, I'm here for the foreseeable future - maybe we can meet for lunch or dinner. My mom missed a step and fell into a marble pillar with a stone base and broke 5 ribs and punctured her lung. Fortunately she has no other medical issues so while it'll be a long recovery she should be fine. They already moved her to rehab floor of hospital and she started PT today - but I'm still going to be needed here to take care of her dog and to be at the hospital for part of the day. Let me know if you can meet up.

    @TonyK, best wishes to your wife for a speedy recovery.
