Feeling like I accomplished something yesterday,, visited parental unit(mom) in morning, dodged crazy blizzard drivers, had a delicious lunch with gift certificates, had lots of leftovers for dinner, so did not have to cook yesterday!!
I finally decided that since it is getting close to valentine's day, it was time to take the Christmas tree down and pack it for sale. We tested all of our sets of lights, sorted through boxes of decorations that I am parting with for sale,, loaded that big rubbermaid coffin in my back seat with HALF of the tree,, only one coffin will fit in my car,, even with my back seats down I cannot fit one in my trunk too, so that will be two trips to the parental abode.. we take sale things every trip there..
I cleaned one bathroom, sorted bills, mail, loaded dishwasher and vacuumed carpets after tree removal,, we now have our little teeny living room back to normal for the year. Nest year we will use the much smaller tree I bought after Christmas so we do not have to hid e in the corner in a chair!! Gonna miss that beautiful big tree though..
I know I always complain about winter and cold,, it is a major source of discomfort in my life, mentally and mostly physically, but this year it was the best: Florida's weather has been cold, so I do not feel like I am missing anything down there, our weather has been extremely mild for Michigan..
we are already sitting here discussing what we will bring and do on vacation in 7 1/2 months!! DD made a great suggestion that includes a short visit to my friend in the Yoopee that I did not plan on,, so now we are focusing on that instead of this cold...
Got more VA papers to fill out, in the mail yesterday,, exact papers I just sent them from before.. more calls, faxes, etc.. mom has no clue what this entails.. if only...
