Enjoying My Hermitage

With winter storms constantly coming on top of the cold, the bother it is to get not only myself but my son bundled up, and illness after illness (I now have a sinus infection), I've been enjoying life as a semi-hermit. Granted, I'm still getting out every week, but I'm in a lot more which is good for me. Not only does it save money and vehicle wear and tear, but it keeps me disciplined to stay home. That is something I've been working on.

It's nice to stand in the living room at 9 am and realize there's nothing pressing to do and that I can just sprawl on the floor and play with my son! It's nice to open my check book and see days go by without a dime spent.

Tomorrow, my hermitage ends temporarily as I have many errands to run. Errands, I know will take two days to do. Then Sunday is church and family dinner. Monday, I go get blood work done. Tuesday is Christmas and all it's visiting. Wednesday, I hit after-Christmas sales to stock up for next year. Then, I can become a quasi-hermit again.

I plan to hermit for most of 2008 as well, since I'll be preggy, then birthing and caring for a new little one. I look forward to it.

I put in a decent start to the basement cleaning yesterday. I'm STILL organizing patterns. The box of stuff to sell or give away is about half full already! I may be rid of some patterns, too. Complete patterns I sell. I think it would be wise for me to limit myself to one file drawer of patterns.

Hi Kate,

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I am a frequent reader of Candy's and I like the stuff she has on home birth. The only difference is that hubby and I want an assisted home birth with a midwife. It's actually funny that you left that comment yesterday, because 2 days ago we found out that we're expecting out first child!
