My Dad had another bypass surgery on Friday and I’m pleased to say that although it was more extensive than the doctor had planned on and despite a minor infection, he’s doing quite well. Of course, he’s more than ready to go home, but they’re going to keep him at least another day. I’m about to go up there to hang out with him for a while while he tries to convince the kitchen staff that pancake batter should always be made with beer to make them fluffy. I don’t think he’s winning this one.
I’ve also been purging my house, one room and cupboard at a time. When the housing market eventually picks up, I want this house fixed up and ready to sell. I can’t stand this neighborhood and I’d love to get out somewhere in the country – or at least in a neighborhood where I can’t see into my neighbor’s bathroom from my kitchen. That would be freaking spectacular.
My husband and I both came from families that never really got rid of things, because ‘you never know when you might need something.’ Well, I’m trying to adopt the attitude of ‘if I haven’t used it in the last year, I’m probably not going to.’ So far, it’s working…we’ll see how well that goes when it’s time to purge the books and fabric.
In other news, I finally got off my butt and made a facebook account, so if any of you are on it, I’d love it if you came and friended me. I’m a little lonely over there. 😉
All right, I’m off to the hospital, the last set of kitchen cupboards, and the shifter menage…hope everyone is having a great day.

Glad to hear your dad's doing well.
I have purged stuff and never, ever, ever, ever wanted it back. Ever. By the time you “need” something, it's outdated/useless and you're better off getting a new one.
Glad your dad's doing well.
Hmm – purging is great except when it comes to books and fabric – because those are ALWAYS useful. Especially for quilts, costumes, and those really cool bags that hold everything and the kitchen sink. 🙂
