Grammy said DF and I wanted to be alone so we could be "Drunk & Disgraceful." Which was probably true. Yes, DF and I spent the night alone. It was amazeballs. DF cooked me the most wonderful Pasta Primavera I've ever tasted. I set the table and we ate together and talked about our future.
Better than any restaurant.
Plus, we had wine at dinner from my favorite winery in Seattle. Chateau Ste. Michelle is about 3 miles from my old apartment and I used to go there a bunch. It is such yummy, delicious wine. I was so happy we found a bottle here in Florida.
No resolutions for me. I always make the same one every year: To be more awesome this year than I was last year. It's working out so far.
DF and I drank waaaaay too much. It started with a bottle of champagne around 6PM:
Then we had the wine with supper and to top it off we had another bottle of champagne around 10:30PM. We had my favorite- Rose Champagne ready for midnight.
But, uh, we didn't even make it to midnight.
I remember DF rolling over in bed at midnight and saying Happy New Year baby...and we smooched but we were both pretty in the bag.
I woke up at 7:30AM this morning and thought my head would explode. This is probably why:
The aftermath. Yeesh.
On my short list was 3 Tylenols and lots of water. DF made love muffins and we're slowing getting ready to go out into the world. I'm so sore and tired. When did we get old?!
DF and I have a saying, "Today we drink: Tomorrow we pay for it." Boy was that true about yesterday and today.
DF and I made a few "us" resolutions. Which aren't so much resolutions as they are things to work on. I am going to try and listen better and not cut him off while he's talking. Bad habit. And I'm going to work on using my "indoor voice" more. I have a tendency to be loud in public. Shocking.
All in all, I'll say it was the best New Years Eve I've ever had. Hangover and all.
