Monday.......last day of vacation















Sigh.....it's overcast and rainy today. Work tommorrow.....another sigh.....Yet, I think, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a great year this year at work. At least it will be a short week. Tuesday through Friday.

I am STILL doing laundry catching up from all the visitors. I am STILL ironing napkins and placemats. I was hoping to have my closet cleaned out and organized, all my paperwork cleaned out and up, alas, I won't have that accomplished.

BUT.....I have spent some lovely time with two sets of family, just about all of my friends, sent Christmas cards, didn't miss a soul for presents, paid my bills, managed to wear clean clothes every day, cooked a great Christmas dinner, deposited all assorted checks, emptied all my change at Kroger's Coinstar converted to cash (which was promptly stolen by the movie thief), saw King Kong, helped at eight ballet performances, attended four performances, read three books, watched the entire first season of the Gilmore Girls (my new passion), etc.

It was a productive, and yes, happy vacation. I hope yours was great as well.....It's going to be a great New Year for all of us. I just know it.

I agree, 2006 is going to be a lot better than 2005. It has to be, right? ;)

LOL. I just told Carol that picture looks like the Grand Canyon, but she said it's not,it's too green.

Glad to see I am not the only one with an ironing fetish. I iron everything, well almost.

Have a good week and a nice day off. Keep smilin'

I am holding out hope that you're right about 2006 . . . 2005 wasn't the best - but I have high hopes for the new year as well.

I hope you have an uneventful first day back at work tomorrow ...
