I have a long standing theory about New Years Eve. To sum it up, basically what you are doing on New Years and New Years Eve is how you will spend the year.
This theory was born twenty-three years ago. Shelly, Brian and I had spent several new year eves together but in 1991 we all had different plans. Shelly went to a movie with her friend Wendell, Brian had a date, and I babysat for the Ettelstiens who paid me an insane rate for the six hours of $150.00 bucks.
That year I got the job with Merrill was crazy busy, made lots of money and spent the year not hanging out much with Brian and Shelly.
So with that theory now explained here is how we spent our New Years Eve and New Years. I worked on New Years day, when I got off work early Lori and I went on nearby hike. I also spent a good deal of time on a really good book.
New Years day we worked on the back yard project. We got a load of gravel and started planning out pathways. We also sat down to plan out the goals for the year, both project wise and life goals. Everything from health care directives to the joint savings account we opened for our travel account.
Happy 2014 everyone, it’s looking like a good year! And now we have this nearby hike that Lori located!
So for other New Year theory and tradition, I am off to make my black eyed peas and collard greens for dinner.
