Brave New Me

It’s a brave me here tackling the mountain of laundry that waits down in the garage. I’m brave going to the gym earlier too. I’ll start a load, go to the gym, jog in the pool, do aerobics, then come home and start another load.

Dinners for the week have been bought so I don’t have to worry about them. Last night meatloaf. Baked squash another night with salad and a veggie. On another we will have meatloaf sandwiches and slaw, and there’s baked potatoes. G really likes that kielbasa with red cabbage, apples, and onion with a soupcon of balsamic vinegar dinner. So do I.

Can I even remember the words kielbasa or balsamic this morning? No. I’ll take a vitamin with my yogurt after the pool and hope it helps. If you want me, I will be running up and down the stairs doing laundry all day. I’ll put the tax papers in order by date, and begin a review of those Nazi articles prior to putting them together for a chap book. That shouldn’t take long…..she says laughing at herself, as I plan to get some photo scanning in too while reading favorite blogs and reading more blogs…..

Can I even remember my own name this morning?


  1. I am exhausted just reading your blog. Although my health has improved I am becoming addicted to lying about and doing nothing! Heading to the doctor early tomorrow morning for my ankle so that I will be forced to go back to exercising with his blessing.

  2. OMG you must be in a manic phase. I got tired reading the list of "to do" items this fine day. On the other hand, maybe you did them yesterday?? Dianne

  3. You are very busy and organized. I feel ashamed at my slothness....LOL

  4. I'm impressed but now I think I must take a nap in your honor. I'm slowly moving past holiday mode.

  5. All that exercise! Gotta be good for you! (I must be getting better myself, 'cause I came by yesterday before you were up; that rarely happens!) And I only know for sure what I'm having for dinner -- most of time anyway -- a couple of hours before. I envy your organizing skills.

  6. You are ambitious. My to-do lists never have dates on them. They could be for today, tomorrow or even next year. Sometimes I do set deadlines, though.

  7. WOW! You tackled the world today! I find that I am inspired to do things too, and when getting home from work I want to finish those crochet hats and this little blanket NOW. And then do a little photoshop work. And maybe a page in the art journal. When my husband hears a list like this, he always asks me if I want to wash the truck while I am at it. LOL!

    So tonight, the blanket is at the top of the list.

    Hope you had a LOVELY productive day. And Mage, you have a lovely name. Let me know if you need me to remind you.

  8. I'm ashamed to say my mother does most of our laundry. Sigh... she insists on it.


Please, take just a moment to leave me a note. I really appreciate notes.
