Christmas Gathering

December 20th, 2021 at 05:01 pm

Our Christmas gathering on Saturday was very successful. It was a little stressful getting the meal together, but I did have help from one of my grandsons, who wants to be a chef. After the meal, we opened gifts, and then played games. They all stayed all day, which kind of surprised me, but it's an indication that everyone was having a good time.

I spent yesterday cleaning up and putting everything away, and I went to the gym as well. Today I'm taking it easy except for doing laundry and hauling garbage out to the dumpster.

There has been no spending since my last entry. But something financial did occur -- my ex gave me $200. I'll put that into savings, which will put that over $3,000.

As I expected there is a lot of food left over, which I will try to use wisely. Most of the sweets went into the freezer already. One of the casseroles was totally consumed; the other will provide me with several lunches.  A lot of veggies were left, so those will probably become soup. I don't expect to have to do any grocery shopping until 2022!

Speaking of 2022, I'm already mulling over my new year's resolutions. This year I want to really think about what I can do to make next year better than this one.  I'm pretty sure that one of my resolutions is going to be getting out in nature more, and another is to connect with distant family more.  I haven't settled on any financial resolutions yet.

    CB, I don’t know what your 2021 resolutions were, but I know a goal you achieved was getting your table refinished, which was a lot of planning, effort and $$$! Well done!

    I hope you thoroughly enjoyed it at your Christmas celebration.
