Why I Hate New Years Eve!!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hate New Years Eve.
Actually, I hate most holidays......
 I don't like small talk, so I hate parties.
I used to be able to drink, so it made people at parties much more interesting.
Now I can't handle more than a glass of wine, and folks have become very boring....
Parties used to be fun, because not only could I drink!!!!! I could flirt!!!!!
But.....
when I was younger, I enjoyed getting dolled up... with makeup... nail polish... big hair and sexy clothes.

NOW....
I only want to wear sweat pants.
Make up is just one more thing I have to clean off my person, 
before I can hit the hay.
Nail polish isn't an option for someone who paints as much furniture as I do,
 besides, I don't like the fumes and I just don't give a rats behind about my appearance anymore.....
 like I used to.....,
Nail polish isn't a necessity with sweat pants.
And a sweat shirt.
And sneakers,
with big bulky comfy socks.....
Sooooooo.....
if I can't wear clothes that a hooker would don for business on the side of the road, 
what's the point of going out??????


So .....
to all of you out there.....
Happy New Year!!!!!

I agree, especially about the fingernails. I hate forced gaiety. I'm going on eBay for New Year's Eve. I've started selling and have been doing really well. One more huge project to clutter up my house with. My sewing room is so stuffed, that I've had to take over a guest room for my inventory. ladyhamilton.

No parties here! Just a quiet evening at home. Soft music, sweet Sophie (my cat) setting on my lap. Knitting needles clicking away, hubby reading a book. Perfect way to ring in the new year!

You are so funny...and I can relate to all of the above!

I'm not a big partier, but have not yet reached the depths of your holiday Scroogeness (?) Last night I had a small, low key, come as you are, no make up (jammies were OK) gathering with family and a few neighbors and we played Pictionary in order to stay up until midnight. I refused to call it a party because I didnt want the unrealistic expectation of "fun". Surprisingly, a good time was had by all!! We broke out the bubbly, watched the neighbors fireworks and were in bed by 12:30. One of the best New Year's Eves ever!

Love it! Thanks for being so honest about what a good many people feel about going out & partying. I used to wonder what the fuss was all about with attending parties, etc. but I have read the book Quiet by Susan Cain & now I know I'm an introvert & prefer cozier evenings in than going out!

Love the pictures that illustrate your point. My theory on New Years and New Years Eve is that there is no beginning and end to time. It is a continual line or a circle, so there is really no reason to celebrate. And who wants to make a bunch of resolutions that start in January. It's hard enough to get through the month with the cold temperatures and boring, short days. I haven't found a good justification my Bah Hum Bug attitude toward Christmas, yet but I'm working on it. The rest of the holidays don't involve so much forced merriment which allows me to ignore them without justification. So, Happy Friggin' New Year!

I agree, I also hate this time of year. Other people decide I should do all kind to tasks for them, like bake dozens of cookies,pies,cake, and spend lots of extra money I don't have.

I love the New Year, means I'm one year closer to being eligible for Medicare. One more year to go, now that's cause for celebrating. I had that red dress once...so very very long ago...sniff. Betsy, you are a trip, a freakin trip. LOL

Isn't it wonderful being a mature woman and not giving a rat's behind what anyone thinks about anything? I love it! I also am happy that my partying days are over. What a waste of time.

You kind of sound like you hate everything and that you've given up..kind of a shame!

Thank you Betsy for always speaking the truth and making me laugh out loud!

Oh, I SO agree! Went to a NYE party and was bored out of my mind. If you're going to host a party, WHY are you NOT playing music? Why have you NOT turned down all the bright lights? And, I'd appreciate some lighted candles, please. I will not go in to the Costco spread....I didn't want to go but my party boy husband was succeeding in making me feel like a party-pooper, so I went and I agree: I HATE SMALL TALK! OMG! B-O-R-I-N-G!

Oh yes . . . hear you loud and clear. I can't even stay AWAKE until midnight these days . . . .and to think I used to wear nylons, heels, makeup - like every single day. Now I have bunions and can only wear wool clogs from Germany. I adore thick wool socks and jumpers - but some how, now when I ever DO put on makeup - I look hookery! Go figure . . . but hey! Happy New Year anyway:)

I am sitting here in my sweatpants and Pebbles Flintstone hairdo and laughing my a$$ets off. Great start for a new year.

You make me laugh. You just described me to a "T".

Happy New Year, Betsy! All the best to you in 2014, and many thanks for sharing your decorating( and life)experiences with your faithful followers.
New Year’s always makes me a bit melancholy because it’s the end of the year we have known, and ahead comes a year that could be fraught with changes, some of which might not be so good..my parents are very old now, and facing health challenges, but that is balanced by the utter joy of watching my little grandsons grow and thrive.The love will continue. And we will continue celebrating that life as long as we can. So yes, let’s party!
I always remember my grandmother's statement about living. “When I am no longer interested in changing the wallpaper or looking for a new silk blouse”, then I know it’s time to go..
I live by that, so I continue beautifying the house... and myself :-)
