First, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all you a early very Happy New Year. Today and tonight is a time for reflecting over the past year for me, and to also reflect on who we all lost this year whether actors, actresses, celebreties, family members and so on.... I get this way it seems like every New Years Eve. I guess a lot of you will be celebrating bringing in the new year, and then there are some of us that usually spend a quiet time reflecting on the past year and our loved ones that we lost this year. It makes me a little sad that they couldn't be with us (other than being in our hearts) to bring in the new year with us. Don't get me wrong, I may get a little sad especially when I hear the music and the singing for "Auld Lang Syne" get going, and man, I start to tear up with all of what I mentioned goes through my mind, especially when the news on the tv play that music and show pics of starts that left us all this year. Seems like when midnight hits and the start of the new year hits then I start celebrating. I know that's a little strang, but the sadness isn't there like it was before leading up to the closing of the year. As I got older I tend to reflect more. I heard mostly guys do this, and most women like to look forward to to the future and to plan ahead more than reflect back on a lot of things. I know a lot of us guys are accused to living in the past.

My question to all of you is do you reflect more leading up to midnight, or party and enjoy yourself more? I haven't spent New Year Eve at home since going into 1982. Just my way of getting out and being somewhere else for a tradition that I started when I was 14. During the last 20 years I pretty much headed up the highway in my car to drive around and find a place to get out and watch all the fireworks go off all around me. Love to watch the fireworks and celebration. Also spent the last few years going to my grandma's because I hare to think she's alone to bring in the new year since she stays up late. It used to bother me to spend New Years Eve alone sometimes, but it really doesn't bother me anymore, it just gives me time to myself which I love. But tonight since I have a new love in my life again I'm sure I will be spending a little different this year, the first time since going into 1986 (22 years ago) when I was down in Kentucky spending my vacation with some family to where I went out down there in their small town and met some girl who fell for me hard. At that time I was just coming out of a relationship with Ann (Natasha's mom). Anyway, are you the type to reflect, or party it up?

I try not to reflect to much and one man doesn't make a party so I guess you could say I'm just going to veg out until it's over LOL. Shawn I wish you and Kim nothing but joy and happiness for the new year. HAPPY NEW YEAR my friend.

Happy New Years to you and Kim, Shawn!!

I thought I was the only weird one that ever tears up from that song.... I always have.
Definitely do more reflecting now a days....than partying.
You get fireworks around there at midnight? You're only about 2 hours from me, maybe I should drive there and watch the fireworks..... lol

I think I'll probably crank the stereo "not too loud", clean house for a while and then watch the ball drop. Maybe have a glass of wine (or thera flu lol) to toast to the new year and all the possiblities it carries with it.

You and Kim have a Great New Year!!

I do try to leave the Past in the past..I have Gotta go forward, Looking back just brings me down!

I just got finished working for the day.. so I'll shower and nuke some good food and relax.. watch a Movie..and have a few beers..! Woooo! lol
If I was sharing tonight with someone I cared about.... I would Dang sure leave the BAD Past in History, and Create some good.. Memories!........
To me there is a difference between Memories and the Past, Memories we Share.. the past.. We take on alone!!!!! My 2 Cents!
Happy New Years!

I'm a reflector. No, seriously. I'd much rather celebrate out with the old and in with the new (and better? PLEASE!) year. But, I just can't bring myself to do it. So, tonight I am putting away all my Christmas things and cleaning house. Doing a few feng shui (sp?) things to aid in a better year for myself. I got invited out but my heart just isn't into it. This was the first Christmas (since my divorce) that I even bothered to put up the Christmas tree. Maybe newt new year will be one that I celebrate.

Thanks for the offer. I am having people over that I work with..
It is a sad night for me..My grandma passed away on Jan 1st 2007. I talked to her on New Years Eve last year for the last time. I could only talk long enough to tell her that I loved her..This has been a hard year for me. I miss her so much. And all the other things that have gone wrong in my life.
I am hoping that 2008 will be better.

Happy New Year to you and Kim
