The early, early start
Friday, January 15, 2016      19 comments

Before you scold me too loudly, think back to all the times when I recounted my exploits on moving and rearranging by myself. This is typical "Dizzy Mslzzy". I opened the office at 6 so I could move those pesky file cabinets. I had my ... Read more
Tomorrow's game plan
Thursday, January 14, 2016      12 comments

A good friend was asking about a large storage cabinet that I had moved out of the coffee room in September. He thought it would work perfect for his tools. Not all of the steel drawers worked as the rollers and tracks were old and broke... Read more
Another early day
Wednesday, January 13, 2016      15 comments

Opening the office at 7:15 has become a habit. In the good old days, nothing happened much before 9. Now, the early calls may come by 8:30. Years ago, there was no such thing as voice mail but there were answering machines, just not in ... Read more
Finding treasures
Tuesday, January 12, 2016      13 comments

Cleaning in the office first thing every morning has been a reward. I am finding items that I thought had been thrown away. But the things I did find are treasures to my children. I have taken them home and will pass them on. One was a... Read more
The Tale of the Tires
Monday, January 11, 2016      12 comments

DS is seriously in need of new tires and said it was just one more expense he didn't need right now. I reminded him of the new set of tires we had bought for his Mitsubishi just before the engine blew out on him last summer. They are ... Read more
A paperwork weekend
Sunday, January 10, 2016      11 comments

Time to start sifting and sorting papers so I can have my information ready to do income tax. Didn't I just do that last week? Sifting, sorting and copying paperwork with DH for VA benefits. More for our two sons who may benefit but no... Read more
A morning walk, time spent outside and a clean house
Saturday, January 09, 2016      17 comments

My short morning walk to the café felt like most other mornings. It didn't matter that the air temperature was 3 degrees with a wind chill of -14. I was just happy to be active. Later DH and I went to the farm to trim the hooves of one ... Read more
Mildly insane and loving the snow and cold
Friday, January 08, 2016      15 comments

I think, being a South Dakota farm girl, that I learned years ago not to let the weather get me down. I am sure many of you can say the same thing. I love the cold as much as I did when I was younger. I have to admit that I am not fond o... Read more
It's just a little cold front
Thursday, January 07, 2016      18 comments

Yes, the temperatures will drop like a rock. We are expecting snow tonight and tomorrow and then the blustery winds will follow. Seems like zero will be the over day high on Sunday-if we are lucky. I do not mind watching the football gam... Read more
Selfish (?) Little Me
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      14 comments

Today I started working on my plan for me this year. First on the list was to see the optometrist. Yes, it has been 6 years and 2 weeks since I was there. But, to my credit, my vision is just as good as it was then, maybe a little better... Read more
A brilliant plan
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      15 comments

My two agents came up with an idea and it was up to me to implement it. So I spent 1 1/2 hours blending the two sets of files we had into one. I guess they didn't think I could get it done so quickly. But the brilliant plan that I came u... Read more
Exciting news from court today
Monday, January 04, 2016      23 comments

Today was a hearing on child support payments. The original payment set was $216.00 a month, which DS does not have. That meant that his father and I would have to pay it for him, which seems a little unfair but just the way the system w... Read more
Full day
Sunday, January 03, 2016      15 comments

After church, we took down all the decorations at church. It took over 2 hours but we had a great lunch waiting for us. After a late night last night with Aaron, I was ready to relax a little. He was so good that it was a shame to come hom... Read more
Focused housecleaning
Saturday, January 02, 2016      16 comments

Today my focus was the basement. Maybe the least favorite place to be on a sunny day but one area that I know needed to be worked on in the worst way. It was a little daunting to get started but once I was on a roll, it went well. I bagg... Read more
It is officially the New Year!
Friday, January 01, 2016      16 comments

I didn't watch the ball fall on 2015 but I saw the sunrise in 2016. Here's to a New Year, filled with promises and possibilities! DH is officially retired! Now maybe he can move on. I was provided the reports from the baby's mother and... Read more
