There were no fireworks, no champagne toasts, no confetti nor hats and noisemakers. It was me, my computer, and the remote control. I clicked around the news stations but didn't find ANY channel that had a New Year's Countdown. I am in the same time zone as Moscow, Russia, GMT +3, 8 hours ahead of Times Square, NYC and my HOME in New Hamsphire. Sky News from the UK said Happy New year to those in Moscow so I watched about a 30 second clip of fireworks. Woo hoo, big deal, it's another day, a new week here, a new month and a new year, just another day here. My husband went to bed around 10:45 since he had to get up at 5AM for work.
I got up at 7AM and watched the ball fall in Times Square to ring in the new year back home, sent a text message to my son but didn't get a reply.
Then I got dressed and went for a 2.36 mile walk outside. It was 3 laps around the compound in cool 68F weather.
We are having my husband's traditional New Year's dinner of cornbread and butter beans with chopped turkey thigh meat. Of course in the real world, I would use salt pork or a ham bone left over from Christmas dinner, LOL.
As far as resolutions go, I don't generally make them and especially since I joined SparkPeople with the healthy lifestyle change. I would be happy if I released 5-10 lbs this year but I honestly will be happy with what I can do!
I wish you all a happy, healthy, safe and prosperous New Year.
We CAN do this!
