All Caught Up

  • Mail
    I've mailed the Christmas cards and Thank You notes I wrote this morning.
  • Dishes
  • Paper
  • Laundry
    I got Critter to finish sorting the whites, so I'll bring my basket to my room on the way to bed; it's closer to being put away.
  • Coupons
    I got this done while on the way over to Ro and Knight's tonight. The upside of being a passenger instead of a driver.
  • Tables
    Right now this means the kitchen table and the dining room table. The latter is all pretty: laid out for a family meal, perhaps tomorrow's lunch. The former is clean, with the gingerbread house still occupying the center.
  • Quicken
    I entered a couple of receipts and a deposit, and verified that all the checks have been entered. Then printed our current balance and the next month's worth of automatic payments and checks to print for Flar to review

On the fun side, I got to see Ro and Knight tonight. We went over for a visit and gift exchange, and then played a couple of rounds of Cadoo, the game that they gave Tigger. I got eight place settings of leopard print stoneware. Pretty nifty! We'll have to rearrange the china cabinet for everything to fit. Flar got the Indiana Jones DVD set. Tigger got Cadoo, and Critter got Constructionary, a version of Pictionary played with Lego bricks. Mom and Dad got a DVD of Pirates of the Carribbean. I had previously given Knight and Ro their presents: a mint set of 2003 quarters for Knight, and Nanofictionary & a SciFi Movie Trivia game for Ro. Tigger also had made gifts for Knight and Ro that he gave them tonight: ornaments, a quill pen, and door hangers.

Before we drove home, we delivered Ro's present for Demariana, LaDonna, Jeshua and Phaeton.

Flar fixed dinner tonight: spaghetti and meatballs with cheese-filled breadsticks for appetizers and garlic bread on the side. We watched a portion of Matrix and called an intermission when the player started dying again. We got as far as re-entering the matrix, but not as far as meeting with the Oracle.

We're all going to bed early to get our beauty sleep. Tomorrow at 11:30am, we're going to get family portraits made. But before I shut down, I decided to update my Caught Up icon to reflect my recently conquered areas. I've decided that Quicken is a more comprehensive term for bills, since it covers posting bills, posting receipts, and printing reports and checks.

Nini all.
