No blog post - Cleaning Out

No blog post today. I spent yesterday cleaning out stuff, throwing some away, and bagging other things to give away to St. Vincent de Paul. Two hours getting my taxes ready, and finished Christmas cards in the evening. Busy day, but since I woke up at 1:30 Sunday morning thinking about all I needed to do, I knew I needed to work on Sunday rather than work on the blog.

And, it's a busy week, a play one night, and the Desert Sleuths holiday party the same night I have to make a cherry pie for our potluck at work. Hope to have a blog post for you in a day or two. I'll keep you posted!

Isn't it amazing how much 'stuff' we accumulate? I'm reminded of George Carlin's routine on 'Stuff'. Enjoy your activities this week.

Omigosh, Lesa, the energy you have. I'm going to quit whining about Christmas prep right now!

You beat me on the Christmas card, I'm half done!

I have a few cards yet to get out, but the majority are in the mail. Had a "pie party" at work today. Karen, you are SO right about "stuff".

I have just caught up on your blog, went back and read the last few months of posts.

Good luck and best wishes on your new job in Evansville, Ind. I'm sure you'll find great friends and book lovers -- as well as cat lovers.

It's terrible about leaving old friends and co-workers behind, but email and Skyle should help to compensate.

This will be an exciting adventure and a new chapter in your life. It'll be good.

The cats will have to adjust, but they will undoubtedly. Soon Jinx will be trying to get into the bathroom and knock over the make-up and Josh will be raising havoc.

Wanted to mention since I read your review of Kitty Cornered, which I read. Treat yourself to Bob Tarte's Enslaved by Ducks. I hooted and hollered my way through it as the author's self-deprecating humor is juxtaposed to stories of interesting fowl and some
birds who outsmarted the
Tartes, especially parrots.

Enjoy your new home and job.
