So…I’m quitting the sophomore story thing. I wrote an explanation of why, but I lost it, and I don’t think it was that good. Quitting makes me feel lousy, so I try to avoid it, but sometimes I have to. Let’s try to make quitting a good thing, shall we? Let’s try to make quitting 2013 a positive thing. Let’s scrub the scum out of the tub!
Let’s change the old shower curtain and make those tiles sparkle.
Let’s even give the old toilet a buffing.
New Year’s Eve I made Shu Mai for Mother. We toasted the old year and planned what we would do for New Year’s Day. You’ll see. I made it into bed just after midnight.
The next morning, the first morning of the year of Our Lord 2014, Mother and I took down Christmas. We have four (well, five) Christmas trees of varying sizes, a train set (I would put in the video, but I don’t know how), and about three hundred nativity scenes scattered throughout the house. We have eleven plastic tubs and a “tree bag” that hold it all–nearly. It was a little depressing this year, putting almost all of it out myself because Mother wasn’t feeling all that well. Putting it away was oddly pleasant. Go through the pictures quickly because I don’t know how to load in the videos.
I’m thankful Mother is feeling a little better though she still has to use her walker. I’m thankful I have a clean bathroom and bedroom. I’m glad to have all those pretty decorations and even more glad to have them neatly stored again.
I have to quit writing for now. I wish I had more time, but other jobs await, and the suns pauses for no one. Joy and peace in the new year–anyone who is reading. Joy and peace to you.
