I did end up taking PTO for Friday, anticipating my 11 yo dd's birthday and that I will want to be getting some things for Christmas. I stayed frugal by not buying any food at work, just finishing hot creal packets I had at work. I am staing busy at home and not going out much. I have a doctor appointment for Tuesday and I am trying to get appts in as I can. I need to get a car repair and a home repair done, will try to get those done in October.
Sorry for troubles, turtle, I wish you lived where you had more help. Nancy, sorry df was so sick. Ellen, teething babies are so crabby!
I work tomorrow evening then off for the rest of the week. Taking 17 yo dd north to visit two colleges. She is not sure about college, thought we should look at 3 or 4 so she knows what they are like. I would be just as happy if she went to the local community college and lived here for a year or two.... less

I'm going to go ahead and ask for refunds. Unfortunately that happens sometimes when you're ordering from China...I've never had it happen personally, but heard about it plenty of times. I tried to pick ones with at least a year on EBay and lots of positive reviews. Oh well. I'm pretty bummed about it too!

We went to the groery store on Friday and enjoyed an out to eat bite. It was a treat however, confirmed how expensive things are and we do some much better cooking at home.
Enjoyed being invited to a wedding. I had the gift purchased some time ago however, the costs of a card if crazy expensive. I have been having good luck with packs of cards being sold at the thrift store. I scored "BIG" with homemade stamped cards that were gorgeous and it cost .05 each. Once found, now I am spoiled. Took a meal, flowers from my garden, and book I had finished and one of those cards to a friend who just had an hip operation.
Invited to a football party this afternoon, brought some apple bread that I baked from apples I was given.
Hoping to ease off the computer this week and start my sewing projects.

DH and I have managed to break plastic glasses this week and are down to only 2 glasses. We are going to have to make a trip to the store soon to get some more.
NASCAR, baseball, and football today. Plus 2 recorded shows already, 1 on Netflix, and 2 more that will record tonight. At least I have things to watch while I have to be still and let this flare-up get better (Usually takes 3 applications of meds spread out over 2 days). I hope it is a bit better later so I can manage to make DH some supper to have when he gets in at midnight.
Nancy-I am glad your Dad is better.
Turtle- The fainting is worrying. Glad you will be seeing a dr tomorrow.
Have a nice Sunday all!
