Things I Haven't Done Yet

Mamacita says:

1.  I haven’t run the sweeper since the Christmas tree fell.  There are fake green “needles” all over the house.

2.  I haven’t dived into the bowl of half-price Hershey miniature candy bars yet. Um, never mind.

3.  I haven’t been able to get a piano tuner to come to my house during the holiday season yet.  The piano is really out of tune, too.  It’s so bad, we can’t play along with any of the keyboards.

4.  I haven’t replaced my violin bow that apparently blew up inside the case some time after Thanksgiving.

5.  My sourdough starter is an exceptionally good one.  I’ve kept it going for almost thirty years, but I haven’t made any sourdough bread for a long time.   The starter is in the freezer now.  I should get some of it out and feed it.

6. I haven’t seen my brand-new baby niece yet. Never mind; she’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL! She’s perfect in every way. She makes my heart smile.

7.  I haven’t done any laundry – of our own – in over a week.  However, I’ve done so much OTHER PEOPLE’S laundry, that I had to buy more detergent at Tar-jhay today.  Fortunately, it was on sale.  So was the Christmas stuff, and I purchased a little of both.  Maybe even a lot of the holiday stuff.  I’ll put it this way:  I won’t be needing any more gift wrap or ribbon for a while.

8.  I haven’t put away any of my Christmas decorations yet.  My tree is still up.  I’ll probably do that this weekend, AFTER New Year’s.

9.  I haven’t gotten tired of my Christmas music yet, either. I might have purchased two more Christmas cd’s today, at 80% off, in fact.  Maybe.

10.  I usually buy one bag of expensive cat food and one bag of El Cheapo cat food, and mix them together.  I haven’t done that yet, and the cats have been feasting on the good stuff, undiluted.

11.  I haven’t told y’all lately how very much I love you.  This is unacceptable behavior, because when we love others, we owe it to them to mention it once in a while.  Therefore, “Thank you, dear friends.  I love you.”

Yes, my blog goes to eleven.

  1. 1. I haven’t bought new rosin for my viola bow even though I haven’t bought rosin for a good three years…oops. Please, forgive me bow.

    Sorry, had to add that one…

  3. I think I adore you even more than I already did… and I didn’t even know that was possible!

    You play violin also! WIN!

    (And… Merry Christmas!)

  5. I’m subscribing to the “12 Days of Christmas” schedule of things, so my decorations (such as they are) will be up until this weekend.

    And I love you, too. You are such a dear person and you bring light, happiness, and much laughter into my life with your musings, so thank you!

  7. I was waiting for the Spinal Tap reference, and then I got to the end. I’m still laughing. “It goes to eleven” would be my favorite quote on my Facebook profile. Ha.

  9. Hey, Janie, you can leave the tree and decorations and enjoy the music for the entire TWELVE days of Christmas! Since we put the tree up late– although still in Advent, because otherwise we’d lose our minds on Christmas eve– we do at least try to preserve that tradition.

    A Happy, blessed, wondrous New Year to you! I love you, too!

  13. Yes, your blog does go to 11. And in all the Christmas well-wishing, I think I overlooked saying “Merry Christmas!” to you. For that, I am much shamed. 🙁

    Happy New Year!

  15. I appreciate you, too. I think that spreading love around is important, and I wish more people would do it.

    We’re going to take our (very tall, very live) tree down on Wednesday. We’re having New Year’s dinner here, and I’m going to want to extra space the tree’s absence will make in the great room.
