It's Over, Time To Clean Up

Today is Monday, December 28, 2009. It was a beautiful day the sun was shinning and it was cool but not the extreme cold we have been having. The squirrels have found the wood pile and have made a game of chasing one another over it.

Started cleaning and reorganizing things again in my room. I like the totes, but they just don't allow you to really see what you have. So I am now thinking like little cubbies on the wall for the fabric. Also made this little burlap lavender hugs heart sachet for Valentine's day coming up. Need to get going on Valentine's items instead of waiting a couple of weeks before the holiday.

Christmas was nice and everyone seemed to be happy. We ate an early dinner and after that the kids kind of went on to do their own thing. Which was nice for hubby and I, ah quiet. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the holidays, but this year I am so glad they are over. I so couldn't wait to get decorations down and put away and the house cleaned up, things put back where they belong. The house seems so much bigger today than it did a couple of weeks ago.

Hubby is chomping at the bit trying to get into the Jacksonville area. He is checking his e-mail like he is waiting on the winning lottery numbers. He told me this morning, I don't want to go back there. I don't want you to have to. If he doesn't hear something in the next couple of days, then he knows he will be leaving Sunday. Neither one of us is looking forward to that.

Son #3 still no job. He and his dad had a "one on one" talk about taking responsibility and getting your priorities in order. Oh to be twenty-two again......

The grandkids were over and the little guy, my blanket baby, wants me to make his puppy a blanket. I asked him if he was sharing his blanket with her. He said no grandma, she really needs one of her own. LOL

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
