It has been an unusual day for me. The kiddos are gone to their other grandparents, along with their parents. So I’m here alone. Wow. No demands on my time, except to feed the kitties. I don’t know if I can handle this. I’m so used to having every moment of my life controlled by other people’s needs and demands that I don’t know what to do when that is not the case.
I kind of wasted part of the day by sleeping but then again, I’m not sure that was a waste. Then I took off to pick up a free bar of soap. I belong to a number of free/buy nothing/freecycle groups and I got the really neat bar of fig soap, for free. So I took off to go pick it up. Then I decided to eat breakfast (it was about 2 and I hadn’t eaten). It was such a treat to sit at Denny’s without any distractions (and for a bargain price and an even greater bargain with a 20% AARP discount!). The Dollar Tree was the next stop for some craft supplies so I can entertain the boys. And I also do this thing for them each year where I give them a tiny surprise to open each day from Dec. 1 to Dec. 24. So I picked up a few things for that from Dollar Tree. They are tiny things, like a little piece of candy or a little car or stickers. Little things that they love to open as a daily surprise. I’ll have to get a few more but at least I have some to start with when December 1 rolls around. Then I came home only to find out that I had been selected to get a couple more free things so out I went again!
I was going to do a Weekend Coffee Share today but it’s so late (after 7) that I will do it tomorrow. I’m going to read some posts now and watch the 4 episodes of Gilmore Girls that were released on Friday, again. And I wrote a new Christmas story on Thursday night so I am going to re-read it and send it off to Solveig for her blog (which I will reblog here when she posts it).
I will bid you good night as I sign off to do some reading, listen to holiday music, and maybe have a glass of wine!
