New Years Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions are often blown by the middle of January.  My New Year's Resolution this year was to never, never let the ironing show over the top of the laundry basket ever again.  I wrote "ironing" on every Monday of the calendar, and so far have managed to keep on top of the ironing before it becomes overwhelming.
 This is probably the first time in my life I have kept a resolution this long....and I am 70 this year.  Ironing was always something easy to hide but when you only have 4-5 shirts and some other things like doilies or such, it is not a big chore.  It also makes the laundry room a more pleasant place to be for the rest of the week.  
Maybe I am getting more organized as I age??? or there is less ironing to do for just the two of us.  Either way it is working.  I promised myself that Monday and Tuesday would me "ME" days.  I do ironing and bills and dust and mop floors and do things that are hard to find time to do when other things are booked into the day.  I love getting up and having a shower, putting on clean pajamas and puttering all day.  Retirement can be a good thing.


  1. Sounds lovely!! Yes, retirement is definitely something I am looking forward to!

  2. Sounds great. Yes, retirement can be good (although I don't do much ironing . . .).
