    Yes, I started working on my list today, but I want to give it a bit more thought.

    Since omicron is burning through the population quickly and covid is proving in the Northeast to be largely a seasonal illness like the flu I am a little optimistic that I can get the mask mandate repealed, or at least whittle it down a little.

    Other goals are to increase my walking to 4 times per week, to install a bathroom sink backsplash, and stay on my aggressive budget each month.

    Start working on a t-shirt quilt for my husband. I started it about 20 years ago, but then kids, etc.

    I'll try:
    1--finish a long stitchery project I started a month ago by spring
    2--get my steps back up to 10,000/day (I've been healing from a non-mentioned before surgery)
    3--go back through the closet and drawers one more time and actually take my office wardrobe to the resale store before spring
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    OK, here's what I've got:
    • Annual culling/shredding of files
    • Organize gardening & potting supplies in cellar
    • Organize empty storage bins in cellar
    • Clean oven
    • Schedule meeting with attorney to discuss some questions about matters related to Mom
    • Get Alexa up and running for Mom (already got internet service activated)
    • Investigate changing Mom's phone to Comcast from Verizon (can number stay the same?)
    • Finish decluttering first floor of Mom's house
    • Get Mom's pension form notarized
    • Get a tetanus booster
    • Get new eyeglasses (the ones I got a few months ago just aren't satisfactory, and since I wear my glasses all the time, I've decided that being unfrugal and buying a new pair with be worth it in terms of quality of life)
    • Arrange for heating company to fix radiator that is producing "water hammers." (For those of you who may be unfamiliar, this is a steam heat phenomenon where water condensation doesn't drain properly and it results in a sound like someone is banging the radiator with a hammer, especially annoying when you are trying to sleep. Tried YouTube and DIY, but the problem persists)
    • Arrange for plumber to fix a slowly leaking pipe and replace shutoff valve for outside water supply with a ball valve
    • I also have 4 medical appointments to schedule/reschedule

    I could add more, but I think that's enough for now, don't want to overwhelm myself.
