Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
It's an anticlimactic day, though I watched part of the Macy's parade (mostly out of curiosity to see if the balloons would march and if there would be any mishaps; when I turned it off only Ronald McDonald had a deflated left leg the handlers were carrying down Broadway). I have a couple of friends coming over for a "typical" dinner. Our family celebration will be on Sunday.

My decluttering today has been clearing out some extra stuff in the fridge; I have a small (13 lb) fresh turkey in the small fridge that I'll brine over Saturday night, and will need a place to put the roasted carcass remains after dinner. I have an interesting mix of vegetables to roast (I don't make stuffing) and when that is finished it will go into one container.

Now comes a mix of holiday movies - some good ones and a lot of stinkers. Good thing I have DVDs of most of my favorites (and still have a working VHS if the only versions I have are still on tape.) You never know what the kids are going to want to veg out on once we get everyone together. Some of us like A Christmas Story and one always complains about it; everyone likes Muppet Christmas Carol and I finally got a DVD of that (after watching it on VHS in years past). Some other Muppet specials also from when the kids were small are still appealing.
