We stayed in. The Man and I played video games. The Man made stovetop s'mores with chocolate that had gone bad (chocolate rarely lasts long enough in our house to go bad), so I couldn't eat them.
The Man went to bed at 10, I read until 11.
The party started at 12:08 when Hailey was desperate to get out of the bedroom. Someone was blasting fireworks. I don't understand who would be out in -30 C (-15 F) with fireworks, but someone was. The fireworks lasted about 20 minutes. The Man got up and put Hailey in her "safe room" in the closet. This helps her calm down.
About 12:20, I heard something that sounded like someone walking on the deck. The Man got up to check. There was nothing there (and the deck has like 2 feet of snow on it so it is unlikely anyone could walk on the deck).
The Man went back to sleep and I laid there, with her over active imagination and heart racing until about 1:30.
Then because I haven't been out of routine, I have been lax taking my potassium and woke up with a charlie horse.
I really hope this doesn't sent the tone for the entire year!
Happy New Year!
