This and That

December 19th, 2014 at 01:57 pm

Last night, between trains, I dashed into a store at the station and bought a soft winter scarf for our boss. It was just four of us contributing $5 each, so I was glad to find something for $20 that seemed right, and so quickly.

This morning I drove and filled up the tank for $19. It was only about half-down, but when gas is so cheap, I can't resist!

In one hour I will go to the dentist to get this temporary crown fixed. It feels like a have a knife in my mouth! I can hardly wait to get it done.

My DIL came over last night to borrow a pie pan, and she was in a talkative mood. I just wanted to crash, but she did catch me up on all kinds of family stuff. The most interesting -- my ex's daughter from his second marriage is expecting. What makes that interesting is that he is basically supporting her, even though she is an adult and married. I wonder what this will do to the dynamics?

My DIL also offered to have her mother and her sons come over tonight after work and help me get the tree up and the house decorated. I said I would call to make sure I am not too tired to do that!

I did get some housework done last night, so I'm feeling a little better about the weekend coming up. Both girlfriends have emailed me that they are coming, so I just have to get my stuff together and then let myself enjoy the wonderful time I know we will have.

    Hi! I am sorry that I never made it this week. Sick kid (several all on different days) plus grade school concert, one high schooler's dance show, other high schoolers final, a 94 year old grandma, etc. I see they are good until January and I have 40 for you. Is the college open at all during the next two weeks?

    I hope you have a fun time with your girlfriends - I bet they won't care if your home isn't perfect - they'll be happy to see you! Smile

    Sorry, Laura, just now seeing this. The college is closed until January 5. Is mailing a possibility? I can send you my address again offline.
