Looking Back

Last year (actually on Dec 31, 2007) I posted about my to do list for 2008. Let's see how well I've done.

1. Clean out the house. I no longer have about 60% of the things I had. I threw away some, gave away some, and the last 40% I have stored at Mom's house since I moved over here.

2. Build a camping trailer. I now have most of the parts, but due to life (moving, moving Ravon and JB back to Oklahoma, taking care of Mom, and taking care of the Poot) I haven't had time to start on it yet. Hopefully I'll get around to it this spring. It's still at the top of my to do list.

3. Lose weight. I started out about 240 lbs, and am now down to about 205 lbs. Now I'm thinking about trying to get down to about 190.

All in all, I don't feel too bad about my progress. I just need to get off my lazy ass and get started on the trailer. Other than that, I've done a fair job keeping my to do list whittled down.

From Me to You

"And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."

Just like almost every other blogger on the web, I want to wish everyone out there a
"Merry Christmas" and my personal wish to each and everyone of you is a wish of peace and prosperity.

Well, not much out of ordinary has been going on. Ravon and JB have both been putting in 40 hour weeks, so I have been taking care of the Poot. Got all the candy and cakes made for the big family shindig tomorrow, and the last of the presents bought tonight. I guess I will finish wrapping and will get all my "have to do's" done by noon tomorrow so I can start getting in my festive mood, and then enjoy a four day weekend.
