New Years Eve did not end until I ordered everyone to GO TO BED. That was at 5:00 a.m.. (on January 1!) I kept trying to fall asleep but all I could hear was the sound of screaming teenagers (they said they were trying to be quite) playing some sports game on the x-box.
I remember I used to be able to stay up all night.
Now it makes me sick to my stomach. It really is hell getting older.
Anyway, back to my original story.
With all the kids sound asleep by 9:00 p.m. and Tyler (who got a nap) not feeling like he needed to go to bed, hubby and I snuck out of the house for a date at Barnes and Noble.
We searched through all the sale items and they had all their classic books buy 2 get one free.
IT. WAS. FABULOUS.
I love dates like that. We had Starbucks and read through books without any one asking us when we would be leaving.
Pretty close to heaven if I do say so myself.
They stayed open until 11:00 p.m. and I spent way to much money on Christmas books from the 50% off table.
I simply could not resist.
What kind of fun did you have this first day of 2009?
