Productive Weekend

January 12th, 2015 at 06:19 am

It was a productive weekend. I did four loads of laundry, made a turkey pot pie and turkey noodle soup and froze them in lunch-size portions, took down my Christmas tree and decorations and hauled all the stuff to basement storage. I brought up my humidifiers from basement storage and got them going. I cleaned the fish tank. I also thoroughly cleaned the closet where the cat box lives, and mopped most of the wood floors. I didn't go out all weekend! The temps weren't too bad, but I didn't feel the greatest, so sticking close to home seemed to be the thing to do. I didn't go grocery shopping, but I have enough to see me through this week.

There was a pretty hefty snowfall last night and this morning most walks were not shoveled, so I did a lot of trekking through snow, even walking in the street sometimes. The hard part of winter is settling in, and I am not in the mood for it. Already wishing for spring! Just knowing it is the last winter I have to work is helping, though. (Except for November-December 2015, but I'm not going to think about that yet!)

I have a board meeting tomorrow downtown. I'm not looking forward to it, because the president is pushing me to adopt an accounting software in my role as treasurer. I don't want to, because I don't think we need all the extra bells and whistles, not to mention the cost, and our Excel spreadsheet is working just fine. And frankly, I don't want to take the time to learn something new. I have my hands full already with my demands at work. I really think she just wants something that's cooler-looking. I would be willing to learn a new system if I saw any actual advantage in it, but I don't. I really hate confrontation, but I think I'm going to face some tomorrow.

Luckily, this president is transitioning off, so I hope that I can ride it out until the new president is in place, and that she has a more reasonable outlook.

    I hope the meeting goes better than you are expecting tomorrow.
