January 1 - we had a quiet New Year's Eve at home, Katrina made it until 10:30pm and then fell asleep on the couch. I was right behind her at 10:45pm. Then the boys continued to talk about computers and woke me up at 10:55pm. We had NYRE (New Year's Rockin Eve) on the t.v. and they continued to say "only 5 more minutes...only 2 minutes...10 seconds" and then the countdown began. We looked at the clock and it was only 11pm Oklahoma time.
Side - note: Don't ask me to tell you if we are Mtn, Central or whatever, it is too confusing with Daylight Savings, etc. I know what time my shows come on, what time I have to be somewhere and have done fine over the last 7 months. BTW - I do know we are in Central Time Zone (I just verified with my hubby & he knows everything. Remember my Jeopardy story about him answering all the questions, if not I will write about that at a later date.)
So it is 11pm and the ball has dropped, it was somewhat of a buzzkill, we all just looked at each other and did nothing. We watched the next hour of NYRE and at 11:59pm the t.v. station cut over and did a ball rise in downtown OKC. Ball RISE??? No wonder people believe OK is a little backward (I apologize now to my new Okie friends.)
Although we watched the ball drop at 11pm, the ball rise at 12pm we hugged and kissed each other for the New Year. We then promptly went to sleep, the kids were exhausted from play dates earlier in the day and Jim & I shared a bottle of wine with dinner. This momma was DONE, 3 glasses (1 spilled - party foul on me) and I was not feeling well.
Happy New Year 2013!
