    Happy New Year!

    It is so cold in my house I can't face getting dressed. My goal for today is to go over to DPs' (who are out of town) and have an inner meeting.

    I also need to find a mouse and declutter the fridge. Setting up my fitness goals would be good, too.

    A nice hot shower always warms me up, LL, and then I have to get dressed in something, anyhow. Good luck with the mouse!
    Cute, CF!

    I've gotten started on most everything for today. Need to go up and clean up the craft room and put the laundry sorting facility back in there. (Have been using it as a guest room, so laundry is in my bathroom, where it's just in the way and all over the place.)

    refill pet water
    coffee
    breakfast
    weigh in, other measurements
    shower and personal care
    handwash remaining delicate glassware

    Today's top three - er, four
    1. put resolutions in writing, including tracking tools
    2. clean the kitchen
    load one of handwash
    load two of handwash
    empty and reload dishwasher
    clean toaster oven
    wipe down the back counter
    finish the handwash
    clean up lunch mess

    3. get the laundry relocated, sorted, and started
    strip guest bed in craft room
    haul laundry and baskets back to the craft room from my bathroom
    sort laundry into baskets
    wash guest room quilt
    wash throw and table runners

    4. get some foundation cooking done
    pork roast in crockpot and going
    lunch made and cleaned up

    Happy New Year!

    We hit the dog park, got a few groceries (um, the most important was Mochi Ice Cream), and we've all been just hanging out. I'm 3D printing a "Maneki Neko" (Lucky Cat), mostly to play around with oil-based paint on plastic objects. Chatted with various relatives, and did my 30 on the treadmill ...

    Congrats on the cricket and new fishie, CF!

    Pretty much all I've done for the past week is read books, watch TV, and find my motivation. DH and I knew that we had to make changes, but we didn't want to try to make them in the middle of all the Christmas stuff.

    Cool, MM - Lucky Cat is one of Ds19's favorite things. He has a little one in his room.

    Easter? Sigh. Just no.

    Feel better, Em! Colds are no fun.

    sort laundry into baskets

    Everything is too early. Let one season finish before the next one starts.
    On Christmas Eve I saw the shops setting up for the Back to School sales.
    School starts back here on January 27th.

    I am with you!

    I am glad the "season" is over.
    I need some stable time to work and
    plan, clean and settle into my "new" life.

    We had a nice dinner with ds and his family.
    The food came out good and they brought a
    delicious pumpkin cheesecake streusel pie :-)

    No church tomorrow, not going to spread this
    around the "old folks" at church, so I am going
    to take it easy and plan.

    Happy New Year!
