This WordPress theme is called “Almost Spring”. Seemed appropriate. After last nights high winds with us sandwiched between a high pressure and low pressure system, I’m ready to see the seasonal changes over. Too close in memory to our tornado last year. Most of us are still scarred. There were casualties within a quarter mile of my house. With the wind howling overnight and things creaking and popping, it took me a while to wind down to sleep!
Today is the last day of 2008! And then, we must crawl out of our holiday-ness again and begin to act like productive citizens of society. Working out. Eating better. Getting disciplined.
Last night’s weather had me wishing I had put my Christmas decorations away while the weather was warm. Perhaps I should have acted on that urge! I just so miss the twinkle. Things have just calmed down enough for me to enough it in the evening hours!
Today I’m dealing with some issues for Mom: mail that needs to be send, calls that need to be made, boxes that need to be sent. I hope to wrap all that up today. I call these “Mom Days”. I try to look at their business that needs to get done and get it all done in one day. (My mind just doesn’t multi-task two households very well. I’ve found it’s better for me to get myself caught up, then tackle their household. I usually need a day for their personal stuff about every 8-10 days and then another half day for business stuff…there is the trickle of communication in between, but that’s when I try to sit at the desk and get the slate clean.)
I hope your last day of 2008 brings a lot of happy memories, time with friends, and good reflection.
