I obviously have not been very consistent this year, posting rarely. I have spent considerable time at my Mom's but finally managed to get some work done on the outside of the house. Siding was completed, with one new window and a larger back door. I also had them build me new steps to the back door with a 4 inch rise, which makes it easier for these arthritic knees to climb. I will get some pictures in the spring, when it is pretty out there. Right now we just got another 3-4 inches of snow on top of the 8 inches we got on the 26th. It is wet and heavy, and I will get out and clean off the car, but I am stocked up so don't have to leave anytime soon. I filled up the van gas tank on the 24th, before the storm. Gas was $3.05. Now it is $3.35. Crazy.
I need to do a new pantry challenge, and continue purging the books. I have had close to 40 boxes of books picked up by freecyclers, and more to come. I have about 200 listings up on EBAY, and need to continue listing more box lots of books and the rest of the clothes.
2013 is going to be a very busy year, travel wise. I have a nephew getting married in Dallas in March, Brian Retiring in New York in May, DeToy reunion in Iowa in July, niece getting married in Colorado in September and I am probably leaving something out. I am also expecting 3 new baby relatives this spring. :Life is good.
