Happy New Year's Eve

Here we are on New Year's Eve, and I think this might be the first year that I don't stay up till midnight with the kids. I'm tired. I work a 9 - 5 job, which actually ends up to be 6:30 - 3:30, so I'm tired.  There are 2.5 hours left until midnight, but the kids are watching some movie that I don't care about,  and hubby is asleep. This is not turning out like I'd hoped.

Just a second ago, my youngest son asked if he and his brother could have sparkling cider, and I said that they could at midnight, but I didn't know if I'd be up till then because their movie was boring to me and their dad was asleep. He seemed to be fine with that, but truly, I want to go to sleep.

Does anyone else feel this way? Is it just me?  Am I getting old?  Am I showing my age?  I don't feel old. I work. I'm a mom and wife. I care for a geriatric and ill dog. I'm tired. I am not Wonder Woman, sorry to say.

We'll see if I can hang in there till midnight. If I can convince them to watch the Twilight Zone marathon, we'll be in better shape.
