I can tell...

...that I'm feeling better.  I have all kinds of projects floating around in my head.  For the most part, I even have the supplies already on hand.  Now all I have to do is harness the brain waves and sit down and do something!

It has been super cold here for what seems like forever.  I don't like getting up and going to work in 1 degree weather with wind chills in the sub-zero range.  No fun!  By the time I get home from work, it is dark (and still cold both inside the apartment and outside), so my usual routine is to go into the house, put my throw and/or quilt into the dryer to warm up, and jump into pjs.  Therefore, not much gets done around the house, because I usually fall asleep early and don't ever get out from under the covers until it's time to shower and get ready for work.  Not good habits to get into at all. 

Maybe tonight will be the night...



So this is the start of a new year...no "new year, new you" or resolutions for me.  I decided several years ago that I could/would not keep promises to myself, or that they were just too big in scope to handle.  This year I just want to "be good"...be a good citizen, be a good neighbor, be a good supervisor, be a good mother and grandmother.  That really shouldn't be hard...I always (almost anyway!!) try to do the right thing.  It may sound silly, but I want to live my "dream" life this year...to come home to a relatively clean and uncluttered home and do whatever my heart desires...read, knit, whatever.  Since I've severely down-sized, I'm fairly certain that I can make that happen without too much stress and strain.
