We were like dancing fools in here last night/this morning, yo! El Hub, Tabs and I. We actually made it to midnight just watching Breaking Bad, and then at about 11:30 our time we switched on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and yelled out the countdown as the ball dropped in Times Square.
We smooched, of course, and then opened all the doors in the house to let in the good luck.
I don’t know if that’s just a family thing or if other people do it, too, but we like to open the doors right at midnight and welcome the good luck into the house. “Come in! Come in! We’re bringing in the good luck!”
Tabs got a little poofy-tailed and scared when he heard some fireworks off in the distance, and he kind of freaked out when we opened the sliding glass door to his deck garden, because I think he smelled firecracker smoke, but he quickly relaxed and joined in the festivities, zipping around our feet while El Hub and I rocked out in the living room.
This is gonna be a good year. I know it.
And you’re gonna have a good one, too. We’re all going to have a great year, dammit! Nothing will stop us. We’ll make it happen through sheer force of will!
Right now I’m still slightly groggy from staying up late, but at least I don’t have any big plans for the day. El Hub is home, so we’re talking about going for a hike later in Muir Woods, which is about 30 minutes away. It’s sunny but cold. Pretty good hike weather.
I definitely want to do something out of the house at some point, though. Nothing epic or huge, but I do feel like I should eventually get outside, LOL!
How are you doing? Happy new years, BTW. Welcome to 2014.
Since I have nothing specifically exciting to say (I mean, I could tell you about how much I’m looking forward to my first cup of dreamy, delicious coffee this morning, because it’s all I can think about right now), let’s just chat about anything in the open thread, OK?
If you’re new to the open thread, here it is in a nutshell:
It’s kinda like our virtual living room, where we can chill and chat in the comments about anything and everything we want — makeup, relationships, work, school, hobbies, TV shows, or anything else.
Everyone here is very cool, too, so feel free to reach out. The open thread lasts all day and night, so pop by whenever you can, and as often as you like.
I saved a spot for you on the couch!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
