Get It Done List...

Ha ha... just chuckled to myself as I typed the title. Get It Done, Git 'er Done, whatever!
My company used to have a Safety Manager who was from Kentucky and he used to say 'gitter done' a lot, which made me giggle. I always helped him edit his newsletter to 'take the Southern out' (at his request, he wanted to sound professional to the engineers even though I found it charming.)
So here's my Gitter Done list for December:

Time for???

a new car? Might be! Now I am not one for fancy cars. I drive an 11 year old compact car. It's a Toyota and a darned good one -- here's me knocking on wood... DH takes it for oil changes and tune ups religiously, and the tank is never ever below half in the winter. I've driven on lots of trips and she's a pretty good vehicle. Knocking again.

This is what my dashboard clock said this morning on my way in to work...
