The girls went to friends houses for a couple of days and I have been busy de-christmas-fying the house. I think I got it all but the tree. They can help with that when they get home. All the stuff is off of it.
That process always puts me in the mood to simplify and clean, which I've been doing for 2 days.
I was still up at midnight on New Years Eve.....which I haven't done in years! After I got ready for bed I read a couple chapters in the latest Demille book then crawled into bed. For some reason, thinking about it being a new year, I wondered if I'd die this year and who else I'd lose this year. Rather morbid new years thoughts.......I must be getting old. I even check the obits every day. I have seen the deaths of several parents of classmates. Not so many friends fortunately!!
On a more cheerful note, some of my favorite things:
Reading in her toy basket. She is such a joy!! That should've been her name!
