Basically, a day in the life New Year's Eve style. Mostly time stamped pictures, with a little commentary here and there. This is LONG. But hopefully a quick "read" since it is mostly pictures.
Only non-timestamped shot of the day - because I hadn't decided to do A Day in the Life yet at this point. It was taken at exactly 9:00. Charley had just woken up and wandered into our room, where we were laying in bed with Laney who had woken up 15 minutes earlier.
Hiding so I can't get her dressed.
Took a picture of Charley so Laney insists on one of her own. Love that she did her hands the exact same way as Charley.
Laney's dressed now too.
Notice the tiny hand on the counter.
Headed out for a 10:00 appointment for the girls.
Just in time.
Haircuts for both - done!
Charley informs me her headrest is too low, and she's right, so I adjust the carseat in the parking lot of the gas station we'd stopped at.
Home again, home again.
Took down all of the Christmas things last night, so today I need to redecorate everything with my normal decor.
In the meantime, I gather some things to sell on Facebook Marketplace.
Still decorating. I use a laundry basket to bring items up from the basement to try on the shelving I'm decorating.
My storage room where all my extra decor lives, among other things.
John came home from running errands with Wendy's, so we had just finished up with lunch here.
Charley wants to Lite Brite, so naturally the bulb is out so I have to change it real quick.
Decor complete, now to clean this room.
John's outside working on picking up some logs and branches from a few trees we recently got cut down.
My dad drives by on the golf cart...
...and comes right back on the tractor to help.
Every weekend involves something getting spray painted.
Bought some pansies SEVERAL weeks ago that never got potted. Try to pot them today and see if I can nurse them back to life.
Realize I had a few more quizzes to go on a management training course for work, that was due BY THE END OF THE YEAR. Remembered just in time.
Finished redecorating the dining room.
Now to clean this mess.
And take a quick 20 month picture.
Cleaned Charley's room next.
Starting to prepare some snacks for the evening.
Always make sure to walk your cat.
Kids have their bags and are ready to go.
Their home for the night - my parent's house.
Got myself somewhat presentable.
First friend arrives.
We are a really rowdy bunch.
First ever Moscow Mule. Delish!
Another friend joins, has her first Moscow Mule as well, and continues to puzzle with me.
