Sign o' the times

For those of you on your edge of your seats wondering what I did for New Year’s:

Let’s see… we put Evan to bed around 6:30 pm so we could start the wild party. Or, because he was sick and needed some extra sleep. Once he was fast asleep, I made meatloaf for dinner. Can you stand it? Nothing says “Happy New Year” more than whipping up a delicious batch of meatloaf! Then, we sat on the couch. Me, reading. My husband, doing some of the sudoku puzzles that he got in his stocking. Once we were done with that, we ordered March of the Penguins on Cox On Demand, watched approximately half of it and then proceeded to fall asleep on the couch.

So… what’s the sitch here? Do I need to make more of a concerted effort to celebrate major holidays such as New Year’s Eve? Do I simply need to drink more? Or, is this just kinda the way things are going to be from here on out? Which I’d be totally okay with, as I am quite the homebody to begin with and all.

That sounds a lot like our New Year's. The kids were sick so we stayed home. We played Trivial Pursuit while watching the Twilight Zone marathon. At 11:30 p.m., we decided to turn to the festivities on TV. I laid down on my husband's lap and promptly fell asleep. Good times!

Mark and I have a theory that there is something subliminal in the March of the Penguins that FORCES you into a deep sleep. We both tried to watch it twice last week and fell asleep both times. And I'll have you know, that was the best nap of my life.

Long live the penguin.
