Option 1: head in a book in a nest of blankets

Option 2: asleep in aforesaid nest of blankets - with earplugs in because fireworks are not fun with CPTSD

Horrid cliche but my biggest accomplishment of 2023 is surviving, and I just want it to fuck off now. Family are going to say I'm a total miser hence the AIBU.

It's up to you, surely?

itsmylife7 · 31/12/2023 19:12

Both options sound great.

Shadowsindarkplaces · 31/12/2023 19:13

Go for it! Both DH and I have developed sore throats and headaches today, don't think we will see it in, unless it's to comfort Ddog.

And yes I know count your blessings etc but sometimes life's just shit
Are there good bits in amongst the shitness, yes; am i very privileged in a lot of ways, also yes.

It sounds like a nice way to spend the evening.

tiredmama23 · 31/12/2023 19:16

I'm spending it on the sofa under blankets with a hot water bottle and a takeaway curry! It's bliss 🥰

OhYouBadBadKitten · 31/12/2023 19:16

Well done for getting through this year. I hope that 2024 is much better for you.

ImnotawitchImyourwife · 31/12/2023 19:19

YANBU
DH and I both have horrible colds with full body aches and fevers. We’re counting down the minutes until we can get DC to bed and call it a day ourselves. It’ll be the first time either of us haven’t seen the new year in for about 35 years, and it’s absolutely the right decision for us this year.
Do what works for you, and Happy New Year!

CaineRaine · 31/12/2023 19:21

I give you permission to do whatever you want OP, well done on making it through what sounds like a tough year! x

Sausager · 31/12/2023 19:21

Both options sound perfect. Not the CTPSD bit of course.
I'm on the couch with DD & the dogs. DH is clearing out the garage. Only been asking him all year! 🤷‍♀️

Mossstitch · 31/12/2023 19:22

I hate the fireworks too, they make me jump everytime, wish they would ban the noisy ones for the sake of people like us op and the poor animals! I'll be in bed too as due at work for 8.00am but no doubt kept awake by the noise!
Well done on surviving 2023 and hope 2024 is better for you💝

Catsknowbest · 31/12/2023 19:24

You should spend it however you wish. Fireworks p me off massively and I don't have your condition- I just find them unnecessary tonight.

unrsnblyannoyd · 31/12/2023 19:29

I don't have CPTSD and I'm spending NY flitting between your Option 1 & 2 OP. Enough of all the NY accomplishments and goals for 2024 bollocks, it's been shit with smatterings of glitter on some of the worst rainbows & escaping into the world of books is exactly what's needed sometimes. I do wish you a peaceful NY OP, here's hoping for a kinder one for us all

colourfulchinadolls · 31/12/2023 19:51

Both sound great OP. I'm at home, horrific toothache and over two weeks until my appointment for root canal which will hopefully sort it out so I'm feeling bloody miserable. Am pregnant so can't even dose up on codeine like i would normally or have a brandy to take the edge off. Luckily DH is taking care of me. Happy New Year xx

BCBird · 31/12/2023 19:54

Kick 2023 in the bollox. Hope 2024 brings some peace for us all

QuestionableMouse · 31/12/2023 19:55

Not at all. Congratulations on surviving!

Hamstermayhem · 31/12/2023 20:03

Uugghhh-totally get what you mean about wanting to the see the back of a year that you survived!
They both sound like perfect options to me-I’d perhaps go with the book one if family wanted me in the same room as them, but sleep is always my preferred state!!
Enjoy the nest of blankets, whichever you chooses and let’s hope 2024 is better ♥️

TheSunIsShiningAndTheSkyIsBlue · 31/12/2023 20:23

I like being a little recluse, my house is lovely and calm and quiet, just how l like it. I don't care what others are up to, I'm happy with my books, podcasts, music and browsing online.

That sounds awful 😔

Do whatever you fancy. I’m on the sofa under a blanket with my cat and a cuppa.
