Oh well. This too, shall pass.
I also am cold - and both shoulders hurt. Just arthritis. It comes and goes. I never had problems with my shoulders until this year. Next year, I'll hurt somewhere else new. Can't wait.
|still have some painting to do, the trim and doors - it can wait till after the holidays.|
My new new washer and dryer was delivered yesterday and I happily did laundry all day. Now I am looking for more things to wash. I think I will wash my bed pillows. - I am so appreciative, to be able to have a WORKING washer and dryer, and that is more important than just owning one. I would of been perfectly happy with the old pair I had. My husband is the one who wanted a side loaders and He was the one who wanted them stacked. Now I need a little step stool to see the controls at the top of the dryer. No biggie - just saying. I will say, my laundry feels squeaky clean so I guess my old one wasn't doing a very good job. I am enjoying doing my laundry, once again.
I have a few more Christmas decorating to do - I am really trying to keep it small. You know, "LESS IS MORE". But then I find something, and feel "THAT needs to be displayed, and that...so on and so forth." Every Christmas I try to scale things down. After Christmas last year, I got rid of a lot. Then this year, I am looking for something, and remember, "Oh yeah...I gave that one away." I will live.
It's just stuff.
I bought some gifts last year in January and need to get them out and wrap them. There has been a few years, where I couldn't find them. This year, I was careful - just need to wrap and place under the tree. I believe I have 2 - 3 more gifts to purchase.
I'm not doing a BIG Christmas dinner this year. My husband and I are going to the VA Home, to give gifts to the Veterans, Christmas morning. Probably just stay there and have lunch later - come home, take a nap and then husband will go to work. and I'll have a peaceful, quiet evening to myself.
Christmas Eve is the BIGGIE for us. The whole family. I might make Pork Carnitas. It's almost a week away. I better get crackin...
