As long as I can find a group of friends with the same ideas of fun for the night, it's a great time and I don't even mind hosting a party. What's stressful is when I don't have plans with anybody who wants to do the same sort of things I want to do, or, like this year, all of my friends are out of town!
I guess it's like Valentine's Day. Great if you get to celebrate in your ideal fashion, but stressful/annoying/sad if you're not doing what you want to do.
I actually avoid plans with others to that it can be nonstressful We cook yummy food...usually have some shrimp and steak and such....and I try one new recipe. We have a quiet night with the kids playing games and eating food and letting them stay up. Usually, we're in comfy jammies the whole time and it's very calming.
It's only stressful because of my mother - C and his friends are spontaneous whenever we all get together, and my mother (since I'm living in her house) has to know where I am so she won't worry so much, blah-blah-blah. *facepalm* (Can't WAIT to move out ... )
Still enjoying my New Year! My small group of friends gets together each year at one of our houses. Everybody sleeps over. It's low-key and fun. Definitely different now that almost everybody has kids. But still no stress and all fun.
I was wondering if anyone else felt this way? I feel like the stress of planning and making everyone happy for New Years Eve ruins the fun of the holiday.
i always feel stressed out about not having something to do or somewhere to go and ending up alone but something usually comes up at the last minute, i guess i'm just a plan ahead kinda person so i do get stressed yeah
