This and That

I swear, time just slips away, doesn't it?

So now it's the end of Feb. And we've had company from OH--bro in law and buddy. All the family was in to see them and to celebrate Ashley's birthday.

I've been going to the YMCA three times a week to do the exercise. Now let me tell ya, I hate to exercise. But that darned Oprah makes me feel guilty and I go. Now to see what happens when I weigh in at Weight Watchers on Monday!

We've been babysitting for baby Emma twice a week. Now that's work! She's two months old already and growing.

The house is being remodeled--really, I'm not sure it'll ever be finished. We bought a money pit to be sure. But my office now has tile flooring, much easier to move the chairs around--unlike the dirty old carpet. And on Monday we're supposed to get wood floors in the dining and living rooms--again, dirty old carpet removed. I mean the stuff is 20 years old and how much dirt must it hold? Yeah, I always feel guilty spending the money, but some things just need done, ya know?

We got the living room painted. Still have the two bedrooms and kitchen to paint and to get wallpaper off the hallway and kitchen walls. Oh, and the other bath.

Writing: bad Dee. Haven't done what I should be doing. I'm behind in my online class on both the Women's World and the chocolate goal. Hey, I don't need the chocolate anyhow, right?

Baby Autumn (picture of me which is really Autumn) will be baptized on March 4. That's another family get-together.

OK--off to write now.
