Since we've been here in Texas,
the two of us have been busy catching up
on chores and other things.
I finally got a week's worth of laundry done.
We purged some never used clothing out of our closet, shelves,
and under bed storage.
This was something I do at least once a year,
but have a hard time getting George to do.
This time, HE suggested it!
We reduced a lot of space bags to just 3!
We had two big contractor bags full of clothing
that we dropped off to Goodwill.
I joked to George, now no replacing this stuff!
New Year's Eve night we watched movies,
and actually stayed up to midnight.
Being in central time, we watched the ball drop
in New York at 11 pm :-)
After that we watched the Houston festivities
since being in our 'home' zip code
we can watch local stations on our Direct TV satellite.
Yesterday we drove down to Cypress,
which is just north west of Houston,
to visit George's brother Bill,
and his wife Connie.
We got caught up with them,
and then we all went out to lunch
at a great Mexican restaurant.
We'll be spending more time with them in the next 2 weeks.
Today we need to stock up on groceries...
and my Mom gave us a nice check for Christmas,
so we have some things on our respective lists
that we want to shop for.
Our gate guarding job requires a few things as well..
flame retardant clothing,
steel toe boots..
so that's on our shopping list too.
We will get reimbursed partially for these things.
Weather here has been chilly, in 50's,
and has been raining off and on.
Supposed to get warmer by week's end..hurray!
