Quit typing so loud!!!!! I got a hangover
My New Year's resolution this year is not to have a New Year's resolution. Let's see if I succeed.

We try to sit up until midnight. This year, only my 14-yr-old daughter and I made it. My son (18) had a bad cold and went to bed. His dad was tired and feel asleep on the couch. Our 22-yr-old son was over in Memphis, because his college had a bowl game there (they lost). But I guess he reconnected with a lot of recent graduates over there on New Year's Eve.
Every year I try to watch the ball drop in Time Square, but every year it is the "triumph of hope over experience," because I generally hate all the musical acts they have. They are all people I either don't recognize or don't like. This year, however, I did find another channel that was broadcasting the Memphis celebration from Beale Street. Since my son was there, I watched it. Their music was way, way better than NYC's, IMO (all Delta blues). So if I can find that again, I'm watching Memphis again next year.
As for resolutions, I have one resolution--to clean and organize my house, and get rid of everything I no longer need, whether that means donating it or trashing it.
