Everybody is asking??

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

It seems like everybody is asking whats my plan for New Years Eve? I don't remember so many asking especially strangers. For the strangers maybe it just conversation starter, like the waitress at breakfast and the checker at the grocery store this morning.  None of the strangers know where I live, so its not a case the place deal.

For the record I plan to have a quiet, non alcohol evening, just relaxing and reflecting back. It is my usual, peaceful plan. Then about 10pm I will head for bed as usual. Don't worry the neighbors will let me know when the big moment arrives!  What will you be doing? At least the part you can tell me about?

Hi Rob, Last few years we've gone to a little Scottish Pub called The Stillhouse in Oregon City where a good friend of ours as well as a past client of mine sings. We are lucky if we can make it til midnight! My hubby did just try to spring a big party that WE would be hosting on me the other day...but I vetoed that one pretty darn quick. Need much more than a few days for that one!

I have put on big partys when I owned a auto body shop in the Beaverton area. Won't do that again.

Asking is simply the polite thing to do.  Or, at least the folks asking believe it to be so.

Rob - I will stay home and struggle to stay up till midnight, collapsing into bed by 12:05 pm. I call New Years Eve amateur night. Don't want to be out on the roads during this time. Have a terrific New Year!
