    Default Holidays plan

    This week I'm on holidays.

    I stay in my flat : reading, listening to music.

    had a 2 day work week last week. Xmas we did the family stuff on the day of. Had a low key Channukah too. Worked in the lawn, played guitar.

    This week, again, 2 day work week. I'm playing our New Years Eve Gala tomorrow night so looking forward to that. Tickets are selling very well and I'm looking forward to really ringing in the new year in style.

    Well, during Christmas I had the flu, so I stayed at my daddy's cause he insisted. I'm working every day this week except on New Years Day. New Year's Eve I'm going to my daddy's to eat, play, games, and watch DVDs. Then, we always have a big family meal New Years Day. This may sound boring to most people, but I'd rather be with my kids and family than anyone or anything else. We have a great time just being together. My stepmom's a hoot too. I'm always laughing at her.

    Well, the last couple of days I've had the flu, but I'm feeling much better this morning. Not near as achy, although my head is a little more stuffy. A little decongestant will take care of that.

    The last couple of years for New Years, we have gotten together at my sisters and played Guitar Hero and Singstar. I don't like going to the bars because like one friend put it years ago, New Years Eve is amateur night. People who don't drink all year long go out and drink on New Years. I'll be content to sit and have a good time with my family, and I think this year, I'm going to get a bottle of Smoking Loon to drink.

    Just me and the wife and the two boys for New Years. Very low key, and we're all looking forward to it.
    We hosted Xmas this year and had all of the relatives spending the night and the whole day, so we're still a little burned out.
    There's a John Deere dealership north of Indianapolis (Fishers, Indiana) that is famous for its giant Christmas light display. We're going to drive up there and look at the lights. Then we're going to get carry-out food somewhere and then hit Blockbuster for movies and Wii games; then we'll go home.
    The wife and I will probably have dinner in bed while we watch a movie, and the boys will play video games. We'll all probably stay up 'til midnight, then we'll go to sleep.
    Happy mellow 2009!

    We'll have a fire going out in our mini burn barrel, a cooler full of drinks and likely the kids hanging out with us. Later in the evening, we'll likely get the Wii fired up and play some games. Doubt I'll make it to see the New Year, haven't in years.

    I'm with you guys...if I wasn't performing, I'd be indoors keeping things calm and cool. New Years is a terror to be out and about bar hopping and what not. The cops are out en force and they're pissed about having to work so there's NO MERCY. Add that to all the people having 20-too-many in a town that does not lend itself very well to catching a cab and well, you have hell on the roads.

    Last year we played too and I had one drink and got home as quietly and as discreetly as possible.

    The year before I got off work, ran downtown to say hello to some friends, grabbed a bottle and was home by 7 pm and didn't step out again.

    New Years can be a real pain in the ass sometimes.

    I'm very grateful for the way mine has been these past two years though...it's a real pleasure ringing it in doing what I love, with the people I love around me...and making a few bucks to boot!

    We're invited to a party, and while I think it'll be fun for the two of us to get out by ourselves (been AGES), not looking forward to it much. Vike's right about 'amateur night'. WORST night of the year to be out. All things being equal, I'd much rather stay in but I bet we'll have a good time.

    I've bartended at a charity event every year for the past several years. This year it was cancelled for several reasons...(economic downturn and loss of sponsors for one) but I was so accustomed to working this thing that I never gave a thought to what I would do instead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So I guess I getting chinese, and renting some DVD's and hanging out at home unless something else comes up at the last minute.

    I can't believe I forgot to plan for New Years!

    I used to play music every new years and even though I haven't done that in quite a few years, I still struggle to think of something better to do.

    Just going out to bars seems a bit pointless - you can't beat being onstage on that one night of the year. Last two years I stayed in alone and just relaxed.

    I am considering going out with some new friends to watch the fireworks over the river Rhine. Probably be back early though. Haven't been able to drink alcohol most of this year due to a stomach ulcer and the last thing I want is to be in a crowded bar whilst completely sober.

    To be honest, I can't wait for things to get back to normal.

    Tomorrow I go up to Chicago to my buddy's place until Sunday to ring in the New Year with some old friends.

    Thursday I plan on going to a party with some buddies to watch the Winter Classic at Wrigley Field.

    Friday my old band and I are "reforming" and going to try and get some work done, since it's a Chicago-based project. We may record what we end up doing.

    Saturday I head over to my other buddy's place and we'll probably do some stuff with old friends and just relax.

    Sunday I go to the Blackhawks / Flames game at the United Center with that buddy, and afterwards I head home.

    Monday (my last day off), I'll sleep until 3 PM and relax the rest of the day

    I have to work New Years Day at my real job, so I probably won't be out too late. Sure I won't see the New Year ringing in.

    I may go spend the weekend with a cousin. We do a man's weekend every few months. We watch action movies, golf, over eat, hang out and talk about life etc etc. Its kind of become a tradition. Whats so wierd is I am 40 and he is 20. The last man weekend we had was at Lake Chelan, we were looking for mother/daughter combos to pick up on and ended up watching movies and hanging out on the deck for 2 days.
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.
