Around the house.

It's Saturday, and some in the family are running around with snotty noses and sore throats. Personally, I just feel tired. I can't seem to "sleep in" anymore. Perhaps it's the coffee. Coincidentally, I don't feel that I stay up as late as I use to. Signs of age?

I survived hanging the Christmas lights on the house. Thankfully, I put my foot down and said "no" to those blasted "icicle" style lights. Bloody pain to hang up if you ask me. Instead, Cindy purchased four boxes of colored lights (single strand style) to edge the front eaves. Unfortunately, the shrubs have grown to a size that makes getting the step ladder wedged in more difficult. It has become easier to go out a second story window and clip them on.

Amazingly, I was able to sneak some shopping in to the mix following my monthly haircut. I have noticed that the corners of my temples seem longer (or maybe the hair is retreating there). I am trying to pace myself so that I am not waking up and finding that I need to do all of my shopping on the final weekend.

And now, to find my book.

I can't stay up late either, and I think it's age. As for shopping - I'm about 50% done, and leaivng tomorrow for 2 weeks in Tampa on business. So my "best shopping" is going to be the weekend before, but I don't mind. The helpers at Bath & Body Works expect me to come then.

Expanding temples? Enlarged forehead? Hmmm....

I am washing more of my face than I used to as well. Sigh....
