By now I thought I would be more little ol' ladylike, but noooooo. I am embracing my wrinkles, gray hair and chins and happy to still have all my teeth. Nothing aches (at the moment) and I am happier than I have been in years. I have more of everything and that includes friends, and now is the time to look forward to what is still to accomplish and try to pack it all in the next 30 or so years I have left.
I believe there will be much more giving stuff away, since you can't take it with you, and after four moves in ten years, with so much still unpacked, it looks like a great time to de-stash....as if.
We had a very nice Christmas with friends, family and doggies. Half our furniture is still at the other house, so we cobbled together what we had and it turned out so pretty.
I am so blessed with these crazies, my sister Brooke and niece Glory, and so glad to be living in the warm South, altho we do complain about how cold it is here. ha!
To celebrate this day, I am going to the other house to wash walls, do some paint touch ups, go to knitting and make a great birthday dinner of lamb chops, champagne and cheesecake! O happy Mel!
