I just noticed that this week is a special garbage pickup- you can put out 2 bags. (normally you can put out 1 here) I guess this is because they anticipate higher than normal garbage after Christmas. My garbage production is no greater than any other week so I won't be able to take advantage of it but if I had noticed earlier I might have worked harder on unpacking.
A successful first day of the new year though- I accomplished everything I hoped to. The last thing to check off the list is getting a good sleep! To work tomorrow!
