with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I saw the photo of a poster about the “Totally Overhyped New Year’s Party” shared on Facebook a number of times this week and it made me smirk. A lot of people (not friends of mine)(and probably just people in the movies) subscribe to that particular idea of a great! New Year’s Eve. It’s possible that people who aren’t in the movies think that is an amazing-sounding night, but they’re probably 21, with no kids in tow.
As for us? We make a bunch of appetizers, rent a good movie or two, and are in bed by ten, maybe eleven. Just like every other night (bedtime hour, not the appetizers and movie stuff). The last time I stayed up until midnight for the countdown to the new year was when the year changed from 1999 to 2000 and everyone thought the world d shut down. (Yes, I am old.) That was a few years before I even had kids, but I have never been a night owl. Going to sleep after midnight ruins me.
My kids are too young to stay up until midnight right now, so we watch the East cost feed and declare 9:00 the new midnight.
What do you do for New Year’s Eve?
