Trying to Stay up Until Midnight : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Ok it is 11:25 and I am getting old I guess. I can barely keep my eyes open!! We had the chinese feast and sent a plate to the neighbor lady down the road. It was very good. Then we watched a story about Pearl Harbor, that was very interesting. then because I am trying to stay awake I watched a 48 Hours special about the Everybody Has A Story segment on CBS. Basically he goes to a town puts his finger on a name in the phone book and goes to these people to get their story. It is too cool! I always think this myself when I drive past peoples houses. Each and every one of them has hopes, dreams, problems, troubles, joys, ambitions, many many stories to tell. I continually get a lot of joy from people and their stories!

So now it is 11:29 and I still want to stay up for at least 31 more minutes. don't know why, but it is just tradition I guess. Oh well, I think I will put all my tomorrows posts up now, and sleep in a little in the morning!

Have a nice evening everyone!

Happy New Year! We stayed awake until about 10:00 and called it quits! We had a nice evening watching James Stewart's movie "Shenandoah" and snacking on yummy stuff. We talked about staying up later, but DH and I both have a few chores we want to accomplish today and we don't want to be tired. Also, I didn't want to over use my shoulder. I have a painful rotator cuff and am taking meds and going to physical therapy.

We stayed up late for us, didn't go to bed til 9. Hope it doesn't get to be a habit. Ardie, hope you feel better with your shoulder

I got a chuckle from the news report that, when asked what he planned to do New Year's Eve, President Bush replied, 'go to bed early'.

I don't know if that's a Texan thing or not, but I did the same;)
