Happy Wednesday (evening)
November 29, 2017 4:17pm CST
Wow I can't believe it's already time to start dinner and this is the first chance I've had all day to stop by and say hello. After my morning coffee I went to the DMV to renew my drivers license. Some of you many remember I tried to do this last week and the place was beyond packed. Today I was lucky and I was able to get it done. One less thing to worry about. After the DMV I made a stop at Sams Club and picked up some nice frozen shrimp for Christmas. They had it on sale and it was a bargain I couldn't pass up so we'll have shrimp cocktail as part of our appetizers. Little by little I'm shopping for our Christmas dinner which is always a buffet since there are at least 20 of us. From there it was the Dollar Store and I got a bunch of things I needed and didn't need A stop at the post office for stamps so I can start writing out and mailing my Christmas cards. Picked up lunch at Wendys and then spent a good part of the afternoon talking to my Aunt (her birthday was yesterday and she's 93!) and then online shopping for Christmas. The day has totally disappeared and I'm going to grill some chicken and have it with a salad. No fancy cooking tonight...I'm tired. I'm pretty much ready to just sit and relax but there's still a few things to do before I can call it a day. What did you do today?

Well, you had a busy day, and thank you for mentioning stamps. I need those. Also, the dollar store mention has me wanting to make a trip to the wonderful dollar store. More leaf sucking up with the blower/vac, out to buy a new lampshade and red tissue paper for gift bags, and washed the front window before the real cold comes our way.

@Marilynda1225 I think there is about 40 this year. I keep a list of those I've sent cards too and still have most of my lists from 1989 onwards. It is a strange feeling to read those early lists. So many have passed on, some are divorced, some have left the country, new names have been added - so much time has passed and so much has changed.

I wrote three discussions here on my lot this morning, then I cleaned my upstairs bathroom and changed my linens, I've picked up around the house and done some laundry. And now I'm going to jump in the shower and get dressed so I can go pick up my guest from Australia. I can't bring her to my home until she's vetted so we have to meet with the pass and ID folks in the morning so we can start that process. In the meantime I'm taking her to a hotel and then we'll go from there. I still have to pack my bags so I may drop her off and let her rest and come back and do a couple things at home and then meet her later on for dinner. I have to see what I have to see what she thinks
