New Years Eve

December 31, 2011

Having two children under the age of three makes having a cool New Year’s impossible.  There are no cocktail parties, or oyster roast or all you can eat Chinese food buffets.  Instead, there is pizza out of a box and reruns of Caillou on Sprout.

This year, divine intervention struck in the form of our babysitter calling Becky and asking if she could watch the kids for a couple hours .  She needed the money and we needed the sanity of a grown-up dinner without having to keep Miss Julia from detroying sugar packets.

We headed to Outback with a gift certificate and a coupon for a free Bloomin’ Onion in hand.  I felt very suburban.  We had a nice dinner and then did some grocery shopping.  The degree of difficulty was vastly downgraded without the kids in tow and we were able to get all the things we needed for New Year’s Day in short order.

The rest of the night was fairly uneventful.  Both kids were in bed by 8:30 and we rented a movie, Midnight in Paris. It was very disappointing (interesting premise, bad execution).  Becky turned in at 10 o’clock and I soldiered on until 11 o’clock.  I was tired and decided to welcome 2012 in with my eyes shut.
