Bit by bit...putting it together!

Things are starting to fall into place in some ways. Work seems to be going better than it did a week ago.

I should have time to wash the dog this weekend, maybe get a few loads of laundry in - but there's nothing so pressing that if it doesn't get done, lives are ruined or feelings are hurt.

To that end, I apparently told my mother we were going for a visit at the end of the month. Uhhh. I'm sure I said it, but I sure as hell don't remember saying it. We'll see.

I would like to take a trip to Atlanta for an eye exam. Yes, yes - they do have them in Nashville, but Matt has requested the LensCrafters at Lenox in Atlanta, on the chance that he might need a new pair of specs, they have the best options.

Personally, I just need an exam as it's been 10 years, and in that time, I haven't been spending any less time in front of a monitor. Also, my once crisp vision is mushier than it used to be. I'm likely still 20/20, or damn near to it, but a little professional look-see never hurt anyone.

I'd also like to hit IKEA and Crate and Barrel. I really miss Crate and Barrel. And Pastis.

It's almost tempting, in a way, to come to the ATL incognito - get a room on the cheap, make plans to do our thing, then call Mom and Dad on the fly and offer to take them out. Then vanish under cover of night.

It'll never happen, but a girl can dream.

Even though it's only January, our year is starting to fill up with tentative plans. If only I had planted a money tree in my garden last Spring!

In other news, my sinuses continue to cause problems. I'd love to find a good ENT, but who has the time? Aside from which, I really just want my tonsils out, and I don't think many people would touch me with a 10 foot scalpel for that.

Nothing much new to report. Mom sent me a picture of her pugs and two "Yes We Did!" bumper stickers. One for me, one for Rosie.

And for the moment, let's let that be it.
