There are so many things we thought we could/would do once we were retired! I'm plenty busy, but not any more efficient.

I read about the strategy of really small bites; I have mixed feelings about it, but think it is a good way to approach desserts and foods that are less good for you, so you don't eat as much of them (or have seconds).

Interesting conversation with a neighbor about his foundation problems - his foundation guy told him to put up rain gutters, that with all of the rain we had this year, especially in June, more water got under the house because it wasn't guided away by gutters. That could be an answer here. I haven't had gutters since I put on a new roof about 10 years ago. Time for the research.

Finishing the floor tile replacement chore today, fingers crossed. It has gone very slowly because I have only so much patience with hammering all of that tile off of the concrete.

I'm going to try Susan's recommendation of vinegar in the dishwasher this evening. Fingers crossed there also!
