What to do on NYE?

I generally don't go out for New Year's Eve.  I've never been a huge drinker and well, I'm cheap, so the over priced events of NYE don't really appeal to me!  But, because we don't go out and we're old, we usually end up falling asleep before 12, so I've decided that this year we need to do SOMETHING.  I think I'd be cool just going out to dinner (nowhere fancy) and maybe a movie (we're movie people), just something so we make it past midnight!  God we're old!
I'm off Friday and I have a gift certificate to a spa from my anniversary, so I think I might make an appointment for a massage earlier in the day.  A good way to start off the New Year I think.
What is everyone else doing on NYE?

Stomach and Head

I'd be willing to say that I've had stomach problems forever.  It was brought to my attention a few weeks ago that I could have a wheat allergy or another food allergy that has been causing my discomfort.  I also have been getting dizzy a lot the last few months.  So, I decided to go to the doctor and cover both those issues at the same time (one copay people).  Oddly, my old doctor sold his practice (not that I ever got to see him, just his assistants) so when I called this time I saw a new doctor and I really like him!  He seemed to really care about finding out what is wrong with me.  In the past, the doctors have just kinda brushed my issues aside.  I've been told I might have IBS, but never given any solution for it.  I was sent for a full allergy panel including gluten as well as an ultrasound of my stomach and an EKG for the lightheadedness.    I went for the blood work last week and I'm awaiting the results and tomorrow morning I got for the ultrasound and EKG.  Part of me hopes there's nothing wrong and part of me hopes it gets figured out, especially my stomach because it's a real pain to have stomach issues EVERY TIME you eat!  I'm off to bed soon because I can't eat or drink after 12.
