Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

About Me

My photo
I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Thursday, January 14, 2010


Yesterday I finished the filing, hanging on walls, putting in filing cabinets putting into scrap books and throwing into the trash all of the stuff I brought home from work. Guess I am finally HOME - and only HOME. I have a pretty good sized pile of clothes and other personal gear that was in my work truck in the garage that needs to be gone through and taken care of. BUT, It is out of sight and out of mind for's too damned cold to sort stuff in the garage for a while.

I am pretty happy that I don't have to go into work any more. I have found that if I try I can stay in bed after 4:30 and actually go back to sleep until 7:30 or so....I guess I am starting to get used to a new life.

It's good that you organized your stuff when you brought it home instead of just piling it in a corner and letting it sit forever. :0)

I knew I had stuff in there that was important to me and knew if I didn't take care of it right away it would just sit and draw dust---aftgr three weeks I wouldn't care anymore.
