Yesterday I did get the outside decorations down. There wasn't much this year. I have all my boxes out of the attic and am doing my dog gondest to organize and label my boxes better. I am also saying goodbye to those things I just don't like, use, or want anymore.
So today will be working on the inside. Laundry, reading. William has 1/2 a chapter to go to finish his first Chapter Book....Pirates at Noon, Magic TreeHouse book. Please pray that he does well on his test tomorrow and doesn't become discouraged. Audrey is working her way through her first really thick book. It is worth 12 points. She is starting a new series of books called Power of Three Warriors. They are cats with different powers. Me..I read Janette Oke, prairie romances.....Nancy Drew..... Joseph read Corduroy which is a 3.5 book the other day. I was so proud of him. He would start to stumble on a word and I'd lean over to help. He'd cover it up so I couldn't see!
Cynthia at Accomplished Woman has inspired me to get busy, get organized, and get primped up around here. Christmas is coming down. I am going to go bare bones in the living room. Crack out the putty and the tape and the stucco and get busy. Tom and I are both ready to get this room FINISHED! We ordered our entertainment center this weekend and also have an ottoman on order for the big leather chair we purchased this summer. I'm hoping the leathers will match well enough.
Exercise! This is another biggy for me for 2010. As you can see from the top ticker I am quickly running out of time to get it all in shape for the big birthday. I bought a pair of the Sketchers Shape Up shoes. They are a bit funky looking and I'm not sure how great they really work but I'm going to give it a try. I walk alot at work and was wanting new tennies anyway so there you go.
It is really funky walking. Audrey and I took the dogs for a walk yesterday and I wore them. I could feel some extra tension in my thighs. So cross your fingers they help!
Ok. Time to get up. Get busy!
