Laundry Day / Turkey Eve

The boys don't have school today, but I got out of bed a little after 7. I had trouble falling asleep last night, in part thinking about my list of things to do today.

But first, an update on where I am.

Monday we made the "longest due" mortgage payment and deposited some funds. I:
  • whittled away at the accounts payable
  • washed lots of dishes
  • washed the blankets that came out of cleaning the family room on Sunday
  • picked up the boys
  • made snowflakes for the school tree at the Horse Park
  • worked until 11:30pm

Yesterday, I:

  • bowled (well)
  • bought Flar's Christmas present
  • got my allergy shot
  • bought cheese for Cinder
  • wrapped Cinder's present
  • found a nifty web site (iShip)
  • shipped Cinder her cheese and her present
  • bought Christmas stamps
  • made dinner
  • re-washed the comforter - Dizzy curled up in the laundry basket with muddy feet
  • read to the boys
  • took a bubble bath
  • talked to Wolf

And now, the list that was keeping me awake last night:

  • Laundry
  • Print a dozen checks
  • Take Tigger to R's house for a playdate
  • Deposit money
  • Make a payment on the second mortgage
  • Deposit a check from the equity line
  • Mail checks
  • Call around looking for sheet copper
  • Buy sheet copper for a school project for Tigger
  • Start lists for Christmas shopping and crafts
  • Prepare sweet potato casseroles, cranberry fluff and mincemeat pie
  • Pick up Tigger
  • Take Tigger to work with me (if he's still interested)

List done.

Going to eat breakfast and start the laundry, then come back here to print checks.

    I’m living in utter luxury. I’m working at the federal building in Denver, and I found a nifty AirBNB (under the lodging per diem) just a block away.…

  • The air is the air

    While sleeping under a ceiling fan may not cause death, it can contribute to a dry air morning sore throat. I put up with the sore throat because…

  • Never Give Up. Never Surrender.

    Failure comes only to one unwilling to adapt and keep looking forward. My marriage ended last year. I’m not a failure at relationships; I’m now…
