We made it! We got home late last night. It was a long drive. Regardless of the length, I'm very glad to be home. I was visually assaulted with the mess of my house when I walked in. My sister-in-law keeps an immaculate home. When you stay in a very neat house for an extended time, you will physically hurt when you look at your own mess. This is where I'm at now. I've been trying to start slowly with the cleaning and organizing. I think I'll get there eventually.
We got up this morning after sleeping in (Raelynn did wake me up early but I was able to go back to sleep) and we went to town. We got some breakfast at Hardee's , then went to check on the practicality of getting rid of some dead appliances we have laying around. We then went to Walmart and got some groceries to get started for the week. After we came home, we all went on a nice 2 mile walk. The weather is cool but sunny. Great walking weather.
Right now David's dad is playing Scrabble with David. His stepmother is sitting in the living room watching a TLC show on morbidly obese people. I just finished some of my hot and cheesy black eyed pea dip. I got the recipe from a blog that I've been following for a couple of years. Super yummy.
At 5, we'll go over to my mom's house for New Year's Day dinner. I'm hoping into come home afterwards and keep working on the cleaning. I don't really believe in resolutions. I do have some goals for myself. Get healthy, take better care of myself, keep a neater and more organized home and classroom. Those sound like reachable goals.
Anyway.....here's to hoping that your 2010 starts with all that you love. I am blessed.
Life is complicated.
