Subject: RE: Declutter & Exercise )()( December 2012
Started this morning by de-cluttering a small brandy snifter. Slipped out of my (rather full) hands while aiming towards the radio to turn it on for Tom -- I have a whole dance routine I go through when I come downstairs to turn the house on for Tom), fell on the floor and, of course, smashed. Fortunately, I have two more. I like the small size as it of necessity keeps my nightcaps small.
Actually, I'd already been filing letters from the '90s and making notations to put on the calendars in my archives.
Yesterday was more or less unproductive. I again woke up way too early. Finished a book, then declared the day to be a pajama day. Did get a nap later that gave me a little bit of energy for a long phone conversation later comparing notes and giving encouragement to a friend juggling work and being caregiver for her husband. Then got a surprise email from a total stranger wanting to know if some of her ancestors are related to some of mine. Gave her some info off the top of my head and now I have to find the mimeographed "buch" I've actually had in my hands within the past month but is now totally lost in the piles of papers, notebooks, etc. covering the bedroom floor (which I HAVE to do something with REAL SOON to make the bedroom safe for Tom to come back up before we get a Christmas tree.
Saturday I goofed off and visited with a friend in Portsmouth and drank wine and petted her totally floozy dog who doesn't like most women, but loves me and floozes with his head in my lap so I can rub his belly. But I DID get rid of two bags of Christmas stuff I've been trying to find homes for.
Now if I can just find someone who wants a 5-foot tall inflatable bottle of Lauder's Scotch...
Enough... I've got work to do!
