I was getting ready for bed last night when it occured to me that it would be just wonderful to be able to stay in my jammies all day and not have to deal with a certain female undergarment ever again. Well, so far, I'm in my jammies and it's 1PM here. I didn't plan it. It is more that I have had so much to accomplish this morning that I have been at it non-stop. Haven't taken time to dress or even to eat. Guess I'll have to do something about all that really soon!
I was all excited yesterday. I opened the door and there was a package! I hoped against hope that it would be my planner refill. No such luck. Many many moons ago, I ordered an "autoship" order from HSN, an olive oil based skin care product I really love. If I stop the shipment, I can't get the same price again. So, I keep extending the number of months between shipments. We started at every 3 months and I've now extended it to 7 months between shipments. Alas, it was that I found on my doorstep, not my planner refill, LOL.
BJ (before Joe), I used to go around from room to room every month with the vacuum cleaner and vacuum along the tops of the walls and wherever else was necessary to knock down or do away with cobwebs. Joe saw me struggling with the vacuum cleaner, doing that, and decided I had to stop. So, I stopped. Well, it occurs to me that I no longer have a Joe around here from whom to take orders but the spiders are still around. So, I think I will have to begin my monthly routine again. Southern Nevada doesn't have many "bugs", but it does have spiders!
Okay I am in the home stretch on that latest kit. The design work for the kit is complete. I need previews, alphas, alpha preview, TOU, piracy notice, and product description and I'm done. Could it be today? I hope so!
I have my 5 habits to complete today. I also have a load of laundry in the dryer. That will need to be folded and put away. Step by tiny little step, I can see this place improving. It might still look like a pit to you, but I know it's less of a pit than it used to be. This cheers me.
Come Tuesday, I will request the last of the money in Joe's IRA. I did not want to take it in 2011 because I'd already liquidated the teeny tiny bit in my own IRA last year and didn't want to cope with whatever tax consequence there might be from taking distributions from both in the same year. If it's going to be taxable, it could cost me hundreds of dollars. But, by Tuesday, we will have both feet in 2012 and it will be safer. I had hoped to be able to use these funds to make an offer in compromise to the IRS but I think I may to have to use them for living expenses. Of course, I'll squeeze every nickel. Maybe by year's end......
Okay, it's really late in the day for my first post. I have miles to go before I sleep. Bye for now. Be blessed!
