The contractor called last night and made another offer that we accepted. They're here today for about four hours, they'll be here tomorrow all day, and then they'll finish up on Tuesday. I don't think I'll have anything else done for awhile. All that's left to do is new carpet for the bedrooms and new countertops in the kitchen. Those things will have to wait awhile. I want to get our taxes done and see where we stand before spending anymore money.
One of my resolutions for next year is to cut down on spending. I kinda went nuts this year. Not beyond our means, mind you, but still a lot more than I normally spend. Internet shopping is way too fun and easy. I think that's where I got off track. I'm going to set myself a monthly "allowance" starting January 1. Now I just have to figure out how much that's going to be.
Another resolution is to not have any sugar for the month of January. It would be ridiculous to try and not have any for a whole year, but I think I can handle 31 days. After that, I'll see how I feel and how much weight comes off just from that, and make a decision on what to do next. I know I can do it because I did it a few years ago when Barnaby and I both went on Marilu Henner's program. We went cold turkey on sugar, dairy, and meat other than fish, and did great on that for months and both lost weight. I'm not so much trying to lose weight as trying to get healthier by eating better.
Gotta go. Later.
