I cleaned out my shoe collection. Two huge bags will go to Goodwill, one is destined for the trash (favorites, but wore 'em to death. ). I've put myself on a shoe diet, dang, I love shoes! Can't wear the high heels as much as I'd like to anymore.

Couldn't help it, I had to rescue the silver ballet flats...OK, no more second thoughts....Must..Be.. Strong..

Working on reducing the amount of hangers in my closet and the lack of space in the dresser drawers.

Just got home from my mom's 82nd birthday party. Most of the whole family got together. All of my siblings(8) & their husbands, wives & kids. Alot of us stayed at an inexspensive hotel within walking distance of the house. There were 30 of us total. Space was a little cramped at the house but it was so fun. I have not laughed like that in a long time. Although it feels good to finally get home & put my feet up.

I'm starting to think of getting dinner on the table. It's been a weird week when it comes to this and that. I'm trying to revive a hobby (beading) that I've let go because I don't think I could manage it with my new doggie. Well, Rosebud is getting calmer, and a friend asked if I can repair a necklace of hers. It's an easy fix, I just wanted to know if she wanted it the same length as before it was broken or longer. So I've been looking for beads that would make it longer. I haven't looked through my treasure chest in over a year, and was delighted to realize I have I have the beads to finish the job without going shopping for them. What a mess, though. I spent most of the weekend getting my hobby center, such as it is, straightened out.

Been watching the Grammys and wishing I recognized any performer other than Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Glen Campbell and the Beach Boys.

the bands that payed tribute to the beach boys had terrible harmony. even as old men, the beach boys still sounded better.

It's kinda sad to watch a bunch of old men up there who used to be the Beach Boys or Glen Campbell trying to conjure up the sounds of 40-50 years ago.

On the other hand, you have to give credit to Jennifer Hudson for that last minute performance. Not an easy song to sing.
