We have closed in a large yard, yet my DH has to walk the dogs even tho he is wobble and out of breath. Can't he let them out at least at night in dark and watch from door , in our safe yard? I walk them in the mrning. He does twice mre in day and then at night.
Why don't the foods in the salad drawer jump at me like a homemade pie does?
Why don't parents of toddlers and other children just spend time listening or reading to them.? Who cares if mom has a designer bag or dad has great gold clubs they worked hard for?
Why didn't I sort things as I went along during the years?
/We are signed up to get insulation on Monday thru Clumbia Gas. Well that meant we had to clear out the attic, and 2 eaves sections, as well as garage wall inside on the east end. I've told you we are both hoarders. So this is a big challenge.
Our 2 sons have come to our rescue. Youngest son has been here 5 days to bring things down from the attic and eaves spaces. I am working as fast as I can to cull boxes and get the unnecessary stuff out to the tree lawn for trash. That gives DS more space to bring more down. He has filled the first floor 4 times and bedroom floors the same. Thank you Son.
And older son came today and cleared out the garage storage wall with his son. What a relief. I continued to sort and pitch from the attic boxes. Like last tues I got to a 1985 box and thought I was making progress.
You wonder what in the world had we shoved up there? Well all DH's teaching and counseling supplies since 1959. One box of mine. 4 Christmas trees. 5 chandeliers. etc etc.
We have found home with the homeless, family and friends for most of it. Cots, mattresses and blankets to homeless. As well as warm clothes. Bxes of Christmas lights and decor are again being used...by family and friends. Ec.
Now do any of you want 20 years or more of Natl Geographics ?
Another benefit is the many many trips I am taking up and down the stairs...exercise.
The sons have come through for us so well that we must have done something right at some time....
Track nutrition to lose 10 pounds a month healthily.\ Do fitness program
Enjoy holiday visit with great grandson and provide him fun and interesting things to do.
Take care of DH.
keep track of progress
Yes, the furnace broke down. Will the heating man respond to the voice mail left for him? Good news is we shouldn't have the pipes freeze, hopefully. We heat with hot water heat and below freezing freezes pipes and then they burst. So looking at the good side, we should be able to hold out til the furnace man comes....unless he is off for the weekend. Then it is up in the air.
So we use lap quilts and read. The dogs have fur coats. Life is good.
And healthy hot soup makes things even better.
