I need to get busy, I have slacked off and I think I am behind on these things!! I did go camping of a sort with my boys at family camp, a friend and I started having dinner together weekly, nothing fancy, just leftovers or whatever we were having. I also checked all the batteries and updated them. I have only seen one homeless person and I was  at the wrong time and lane in traffic to get to him. I am working on the de-cluttering, it is not done by any means! I have 35 more things to do before April of next year….that should still be doable, right?
