HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

It seems so odd to come to the countdown thread, I don't have to click on "last page" It won't be long & we'll have several pages though, I'm sure! What a nice way to wake up after a late night, to see the fresh new countdown thread! Thank you - kudo's to our fearless leader, Crown!!! I hope you all had a wonderful, fun filled New Years Eve! We went inside (we were out in my sister & bil's building playing Wii) to watch the ball drop! There is just something thrilling about the countdown - within a minute it's a whole new year - fresh palette! Here's to a happy, healthy 2009!


I've got bbq ribs going in the crock pot, getting ready to make the sausage & kraut & we've got friends coming over for our annual NYD "hang out" party ~ I'm ready to hang out, watch some football & play a little Wii!

You all enjoy your New Years Day!!!!

Well it's a new year, Jan 1...a long way to go till the season and to Christmas but it's going to be a fun ride. My resolution is to follow this count everyday, post, and enjoy the ride.

One small thing (at this point in the game we have to take what we can get) is that no longer do we have to say "we have to wait till next year for Christmas" like we've been the last 5 or 6 days since it ended...now it's all about "THIS year's Christmas." Yeah I know it's still a lot of days away but one little step at a time and that's exactly how we get back to our favorite time of the year. Let the year round build up to Christmas begin...as the rest of the world has forgotten it, moved on, and even glad it's over (I heard that from my boss yesterday at work him saying he's glad it's over and I only smirked to myself saying it's over to the rest but not to US who keep it alive all year quietly in our group).

So anyway sorry for rambling but I hope everyone has a great start to their new year and I have a feeling this thread will set all kinds of great records this year.
I'm glad you did - and I like the way you think, Nitro!
You got the spirit, my friend!

"Good Kind Wenceslas last looked out ..."

That song has been playing in my head all night or should I say morning since it was after midnight when I finally closed my eyes.


For me, it's only eleven months to get ready for Christmas. I don't want to fall behind on things like this last year. I'm on the search for the perfect artificial tree 0 maybe a half tree, but the branches are the most important. I want one that looks like the real trees we used to fetch. You know the one's with a bit of character that displayed your decorations beautifully instead of having to drape everything over the tips. The real trees had much more space between the branches.

Better get busy.
