I have been keeping busy doing fun things and enjoying my last couple of days of complete freedom. This week I helped my mom purge and reorganize all of the Christmas decorations at her house. It was fun to look through everything, such good memories! I know it felt good for her to get rid of about 4 boxes worth of things we never use anymore.
I enjoyed a Costco shopping/browsing trip, probably the last for a while as well. It was so nice to just wander around looking at what they had to offer.
We went and saw War Horse yesterday, and while it was honestly the best movie I've seen in a long time (like, years), it was hard to watch. I started crying in the previews (Titanic preview - will be back in theaters soon) and never stopped until the end of the movie. Bring Kleenex if you decide to go see it! Unfortunately I think I will have to torture myself and see it again because now that we know it's good Steve wants to go see it. I don't want to give anything away about the movie, but I will say nothing can prepare you for what happens in this movie, and it is a good reminder of how easy we have it in our country.
Other than that, I've just been lounging around my very clean and organized house.
|I finally ordered some new birkenstocks to replace my fave pair that finally|
wore out. I got two pairs - these Arizona's, which I'm wearing, quite
comfortably, right now...
|...and some more Gizehs to replace these old gems (on the left of course -|
the Toms on the right are Briney's lol - and I need some more of those too...)
|Steve's Ekornes Stressless recliner came in Monday, so he's been|
enjoying that, and I've been enjoying our living room looking so nice
and cozy (and maybe a little more grown up than the old futon)
|Riggs is still getting marvelous gifts, like this amazing sweater knit|
by my Aunt Connie. Now he just needs to come out and use them all!
