It's Official

I've entered another decade of life, as measured in years at least.  Funny, the feelings of 'being' 60 are different that the feelings of getting ready to turn it.  I'm kinda numb I guess.  Not sure how it all happened kind of numb.

I'm in the end of year trying to get organized to start next year on the right foot mode of things now.  I've spot treated my carpet, which has been bothering me.  Who puts down solid light beige carpet?  Not me, but the woman who remodeled this place did.  I bought a Green Machine carpet spot steam cleaner, and I tend to give it a workout.  I'm doing laundry (it is 7am) and finished hand laundry awhile ago.  I'm making lists of recipes and ingredients so I can start cooking at home and taking in my lunch (dinner?  whatever I'm eating in the middle of the night...) to work instead of buying pre-made dinners at the 24-hour health food grocery near work and spending at least $10/night.  I'll make yet another backup of my computers and store the external drive in my locker at work.

Las  Vegas was fun last week.  I did win a bunch of money, but it meant that I had fun playing on their money instead of mine.  I never come home ahead, but this time I came home not nearly as far behind.

The past year has been going through my stuff and organizing/getting rid of the top layer.  This next year I hope to make much more progress on getting rid of the things that don't work for me anymore, hobbies that I no longer to, finish projects that are half complete, etc.  The mobile home needs some maintenance that I'm thinking I'll do the last of January/first of February as that is when the weather here is usually beautiful.  The Jeep also needs some maintenance, so it will be worked in.  Mostly just the stuff of living, which it seems I've been too busy with moving and working and moving again the past few years to keep up with.

I have noticed that I posted less this past year than any other year since I started blogging.  I'll work on that as well.


  1. And a Happy Birthday to you. Don't worry about it, I am now in my early 70's and I don't feel any worse today than I did back then. Of course right now I have the flu and can't honestly say that, but before I came down with the flu I felt about the same.

  2. Enjoy the 60's! I have found that mobile houses and RV's are always needing maintenance!
