Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
We had several cooking things on the agenda for our family holiday and while it all turned out, I think it's safe to say that we wore out everyone by overdoing it. While the kids were still here I pulled out my phone calendar, navigated to Dec. 25, 2019, and entered "grill steaks or chicken or get takeout" for that holiday as a reminder.

As people cooked I cleaned as I could and the dishwasher is running a second load right now. Having a clean kitchen at the end of a long day like this is a gift to me tomorrow.

One of the dogs must have swallowed something after I let them into the house; I didn't want any tripping or problems while we cooked or opened gifts so they were in the yard for several hours. He might have eaten dirt in the yard, or might have grabbed who knows what - paper? plastic? a washcloth? Whatever it was, he's drooling all over the place now. I'll see how he is in the morning and we may have a vet visit in our very near future. That will declutter the wallet.
