sounds good WG. I have been thinking about how nothing is useful if I cannot find it.

It will be interesting to see how everyone fits here as the family gets larger.

I'm decluttering as I don't want my kids to have to deal with my sister and I have dealt with. Way too many things that others could use or things I don't need. I don't know what it will take, but I'm remodeling early next year so I will have more room for family gatherings. I need to do several things as part of this process and it will be good to purge a bit.

I am in process of. . . I am not sure. I worked today, found spelling homework, went to walmart and got shoe laces, some food and chatted with my son about his mission. The last one was the big one. He is 21 and has not gone. He is wanting to get going. Yayy. Happy day. Now if he can get Walmart to give him time off for appointments.

I am still in the process of cleaning house. I got the kitchen clean and decluttered. I even mopped the floor!

It really does feel good to get clutter out of the house! I took a couple of big bags to donate today. Love to get rid of things! Just wish I could part with some of the cookbooks that I have.

Peace and Many Blessings!

Sounds good Jen. My full house will be the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I am doing some sorting today. It feels good to get clutter out of the house.

I am in the process of getting ready for my house to be full of guests this weekend. My brother and his girlfriend and her dog are coming and they are making Thanksgiving dinner for all of us. My mom is coming and my friend and her daughter. I have lots to do before they get here!

Peace and Many Blessings!

My cousin is in the UP. She lives in the original "homestead" and has bears in her yard during the winter. She picks rocks out of the lawn in the spring because of the cold. I guess it seems so "woodsy" to me. She loves her ward and the missionaries. There are lots of opportunities to serve.

Isn't it amazing what opportunities the Lord provides for his children. Both the missionaries and those seeking the truth.

Today I am in process of making a plan for February, getting some rest so that I can get over this cold and hopefully be rested enough for scouts tonight.

It is a great mission, then. The Hmong people are really great and many are ready to learn. It is different, but can be wonderful. My neighbor's son is in Scotland teaching Chinese investigators, so it is possible to do anything, anywhere.

I'm excited for him.

It looks like there might be a small part of Wisconsin in another mission. He will be serving in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin mission. He will be speaking Hmong. We listened to a bit. Very different from what we are accustomed to hearing. We also learned that they did not have a written language until the '50s. He is in for a challenge. He is so excited.

The map shows that it includes Michigan. emoticon

How fun! Is there more than one mission in Wisconsin? My cousin lives in Michigan and she is in the Wisconsin mission. They really need the missionaries and enjoy them.

This is my favorite one. I am getting my #2 son ready for a mission. OK not right now. I have until April 28. But we are starting to look for stuff. We are in Oregon and he will be serving in Wisconsin. I think he will get cold.

My fun goal is to learn to double knit so I can knit him a piano scarf. That will help in my goal to learn something new this year.

I am trying to find a copy of the old (Canadian Diabetic) exchange program because I lost mine a couple of years ago when I moved. I liked the exchange program but I just can't get a handle on the new carb counting program.

I saw a nurse from the Primary Care Network today. I am really trying to get back to basics on my diabetic eating. She told me that I probably would not be able to find the old program because it is so... well... old. they phased it out years, no make that decades ago (late 80's)

So I was on the web tonight trying to find a list of exchanges. Not easy to do but I did find a few of the American exchanges. This could be a long search, but I must do it if I really want to get back to eating the way I should!

I'm recovering from a bad stomach bug. Haven't been able to exercise for 2 days now. I don't want to let that get to my emotions and get me down! I'm famous for that! Thinkin about what I need to get back to is somewhat overwhelming!

I am trying to be the 6 million dollar woman. I can rebuild her (me). We have the technology. I am trying to rebuild my very sore gimpy leg that will take a while to do.

Today was taking care of business with my mother. We took thank you gifts to the nursing home and ran other errands.

I'm now home and have laundry in the washer and dryer, I'm cleaning the carpets in stages. Some more today. Only 3 1/2 weeks to go, so I'm gearing up a little.

I am still getting all the laundry done. Plus sorting some piles of clothes that need to be out of the home or passed around.

I thought that we could use this thread to talk about what everyone is doing. What we want to brag about, or want to get encouragement for.
