We decided not to host a new years party this year. First time we haven't since moving into the house. There are reasons many and various, but they all boil down to "too expensive". In time and effort and emotional energy even more than money, tho that's an issue as well. We don't really feel like we get as much out of them as we put into them anymore, and haven't for a while. We'll see how we feel when my birthday rolls around. Or next new years.
Nobody took any of our candy. I am going to die of glucose poisoning.
