I Did Stuff
Both Jonge and Famke were playing games using abcya.com - a site I had just bookmarked to both computers. This is the site they use for their computer class at school, so they were already very familiar with it.
Of course, that left me with no computer. Hmm.
So I grabbed my camera and took pictures of them being all sweet and adorable in their new Christmas pajamas.
Yes. You read that correctly. THREE HUNDRED books.
THGGM was very pleased, even though he had to carry them up stairs, to the car, and into the thrift store.
And I'm not nearly done.
I still plan to visit thrift stores and antiques malls, but I am happy to report that I did not find it difficult at all to get rid of books. Even books that I love.
The desk that Jonge is sitting at is the desk we bought in Wisconsin in October and drove it home with one of its legs hanging out the back door. It works PERFECTLY in the den holding the computer, which had been in the kitchen. The flip top holds the keyboard and mouse when not it use, and the drawer nicely holds my cameras and all the cords, books, etc.
As always, there were things that we did not get to, but we have made progress. Once the three main areas in the basement get sorted out, I plan to move on to the kitchen and dining room. Anyone in need of dishes?
If I were one to choose a word for 2013, the word I would choose would be NOW. Since I have so many ideas for things I would like to do, I've realized that when an idea strikes, I need to do it NOW. But there are so many extenuating circumstances, I'm going to mull that word over a bit before I commit to it. For now anyway (haha).
Oh, and the hot cloths are helping my eye. It looked absolutely disgusting when I woke up this morning, but by tonight it seems to be improving.
The next thing on my list is hibernation. Isn't that what January is for?
