But then babies happened (well, they happened to two of his friends a while ago) , and the 'plan' was to hang out with the 'domesticated' friends and leave around 11 to the club with the other couple friends and single friends. Sounds good? But, throw in a few indecisive men and women talking and a few running after the kids, you suddenly realise that it's 11:30 and you haven't changed into your NYE outfit!
The 2011 me would have dragged husby to a corner and made a big fuss and pouted and whined about how much I wanted to be out in a club at midnight..blah blah..But, guess what the new 2012 me did! I just smiled, poured myself another glass of wine ( I needed that!) , made small talk, ran around the kids and saw the ball drop on TV (yup, I did!) and rang in the New Year in a house. But as I looked around, I realized I was surrounded by people that were a part of my husband's life when he was a student and if that made him happy to be around them on NYE, so be it! And I rang in the New Year cuddling up to my husby!
We eventually did go out at 1:00AM.And we did have fun . So what if I didn't get to wear my cute skirt and heels, but it is all about the priorities. I decided not to complain about frivolous things and not sweat the small stuff :)
Here's to the new grown-up me and hopefully I continue to be the non-whiny, non-complaining (non-bitchy) person that I was when the clock struck 12:00 and as we entered 2012!Thanks gayatri ! Your resolution post helped me get out of my writer's block :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR you guys :)
