I had a perfect night last night. New Year's Eve with my kids. Since they are the people I enjoy being around the most then I should enjoy being with them, right?
We watched my Netflix disc X-Men: Days of Future Past after watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. My youngest and I have been doing a Harry Potter marathon this week. When X-men was over we had about a half an hour before midnight and I asked my son to set up the digital antenna. We don't have cable, haven't paid for cable in over 20 years. The last 10 years we lived in a narrow valley that didn't get any digital reception, so this was new. We have over 12 channels* now! My son got it working with two minutes to spare for ball drop!
My son turned 21 last month and we decided to share a bottle of wine. We also had a bottle of Martinelli's for my daughters. It was an enjoyable evening and I spent it just the way I wanted to.
*I now have access to PBS just in time for the next season of Downton Abbey. Hooray!
