  1. Thanksgiving weekend

    by , 11-29-2009 at 12:54 AM
    After a weird start to the holiday, we had a nice Dinner with some great company. Very low key. Friday was spent driving to and sitting thru a very awful football game. Home team lost by a huge whoopin' - felt bad for the boys. Today DH & I went to a Crafts looked around and didn't buy a thing. Didn't need a thing - don't want another dust collector! I guess I was looking for something different and didn't find it. DH was very proud of me. i just won't buy something just because. I have ...

    But I vowed to be in better shape (physically & financially) at 50 than at 40. That is my gift to myself, a full year of giving to myself first. To stop doing things that I really don't want to do. To stop and think ...

    The last few days I have been getting up at the crack of dawn. You can't believe what I can get done between 0400 and 0600!!! Friday I got the laundry done, dishes done, vacuuming done, and still had time for shower, makeup and get to work one hour earlier than usual!!

    The dogs were looking at me like I was on a caffine fix. LOL

    Yep, i do fall asleep by 1000pm. But I figure - if I wake up anywhere after 4 am, I might as well use that time productively! I have discovered ...
  5. Too long again!

    It's been too long since my last posting. I spent almost 10 days with the flu. Ugh! So what have I done for myself lately? I did get an organizer for next year. I actually love it. I'm trying to get in the habit of using one on a daily basis. It's big enough to write my mileage, jobs, paperwork, office work, etc all in one place.

    I have also kept up with the upstairs cleaning on a daily basis. Laundry too. Trying to get more organize, so I can have more time for some ...
