I don’t have the time to start uploading pictures from the decade but I have a coupla minutes to kill so here I am.
Last night, I went through pictures and had a good time with my bad self and then suddenly I realized it was time to get to steppin. I had baked a cake for Krissy (Funfetti, her favorite) and suddenly had to frost it, clean up and shower all before the ball dropped! I managed to do it and thought I had more time than I did because when the clock struck midnight, I only had one eye of makeup on and missed the “10…9…” section of the countdown. I ran over to the TV and did the rest of the countdown and hooted and hollered by myself, haha. Then I realized Monster was sitting there so I grabbed him and made him my New Year’s kiss. And then I took these pictures:
And then I basically immediately left to pick Kristyn up from work. She got out at 1 and all night they’d been saying on the news how there were going to be a lot of random traffic stops on the roads to check for drunk drivers. Usually it takes me twenty minutes tops to pick Kristyn up from work but I wanted to make sure I had enough time because I had no idea if there would be a lot of traffic and I had no idea if I would get stopped. I didn’t.
Oh AND fun fact about the ball drop:
They don’t show it live as it’s happening. They show it at midnight. I was always under the impression that we watched the ball drop at midnight because we lived in the NYC suburbs. I thought that other places had other things that dropped or exploded or humped or something at midnight. I mean I knew that you could SEE it in other places but I was fully expecting it to come on at 9 and I was all curious to see what it is that happens here. Nope. Just like at home but three hours later. So weird!
