Hey Yall! I have been busy today! I started cleaning out our closet. The key word is started. Because just throwing stuff away is not the only chore in there. I am taking out winter clothes and putting in summer clothes. I am sorting things to be taken to the Goodwill. I am throwing away things that I have been hanging onto for some unknown reason. Everything is being sorted on my bed. Then I take it to where it needs to go. It may take a while!

I just came downstairs to eat my oatmeal. Yeah, I know it is after 12 but I just got around to eating it. If you have high cholesteral, you should be eating it every day. Mine has been high in the past, but with the help of drugs, it is in a normal range now. It stayed about the same level for several years. Then I started eating oatmeal every morning when I worked in Roanoke Rapids. I have it checked every six months and the next time I had it checked the level was down by 60! And I can say that I was not doing any type of dieting along with it, so it cannot be attributed to that. I make mine by the bowl in the microwave using 1/2 cup of the old fashioned Quaker Oats, skim milk, 2 pkgs. Splenda, some salt and cinnamon. Yum Yum. It sticks with you!

I checked the CNN website before I posted and it reported that Paul Davis and Al Wilson had died. If you were a teenager or in college in the 70's, you have to remember Paul Davis. I guess if Dick and I had a song, it would have been "I Go Crazy" even though he may not know that. Of course, I have to fill him in on alot of things! I had his greatest hits CD and would torture my children by making them listen to it over and over. Just one of the perks of being a parent! I also loved Al Wilson and one of my favorite songs of his is "Show and Tell". Julianne thinks that song is just nasty. So whenever it is playing on the radio, I turn it up so she can really enjoy it!

I never did make it to get a bathing suit. I do plan to go tomorrow though. I know......I said that yesterday and the day before, but I do plan to go tomorrow....

I guess I better go back upstairs and get back to work! I will talk to you later...Tootles!

All that organizing just may be contagious! If I had more time I'd be organizing all of our stuff, too - sadly, though, I am too busy planning a 140 crafter craft fair - and a 500 attendee Lilac Ball!!!

Can't wait for you to get to St. Marys. With all your practice cleaning and organizing closets, we should be able to mine in a snap -- and heaven knows they really need it.

Really can't wait to see you, I love you lots.

Bathing suits, blah, banish the thought. Organizing, yea, makes one feel lighter! I've got to check out the celebs deaths. Been so snowed under with wedding planning, not keeping up with the world.
