A FEW MORE GROCERIES

TODAY WE WENT TO SUPER WALMART---I ALWAYS THINK OF LISA WHEN WE GO THERE. IT WAS COLD AND BLUSTERY OUTSIDE, SO THOT IT A GOOD DAY TO SHOP INSIDE. GOT A HALF HAM AND A TURKEY BREAST AND A FEW OTHER THINGS. TRYING TO FIGURE OUT AT LEAST ONE MEAL A DAY WHILE KIDS ARE HERE--AND THE REST CAN BE SANDWICHES ETC.
WHEN THE BOYS WERE LITTLE WE ALWAYS HAD A REAL CHRISTMAS MORNING WITH STOCKINGS, GIFTS ETC..BUT THIS YEAR WE TOLD THEM WE WOULD HAVE A NICE DINNER--BUT MAYBE WOULD GO TO THE BEACH OR SOMETHING---NO SANTA.
THEY ALWAYS HAVE "CHRISTMAS" IN MN WITH DAUGHTER IN LAW'S SIDE BEFORE THEY COME DOWN, AND THIS YEAR WE GAVE OUT ALL THE GIFTS AT THANKSGIVING TIME. JERRY AND I PLAN TO TAKE A TOUR THIS WINTER AND MAYBE EVEN A CRUISE IF WE CAN AFFORD IT---SO PROBABLY WON'T REALLY GIVE GIFTS.WE HAD SUCH A ROTTEN SUMMER, WITH SO MUCH TIME SPENT IN CLINICS AND HOSPITALS---WE DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE OR DO ANYTHING EXCEPT THE ALMOST DAILY RIDE AROUND TOWN.
WE ARE SUPPOSE TO HAVE A FREEZE TONIGHT--IT HAS BEEN COLD ALL DAY--AND WINDY. YESTERDAY WAS 85 AND SO NICE OUT. THE WIND HIT LAST EVENING AND REALLY RATTLED THE STUFF ON THE DECK.
THE BUG MAN CAME TODAY AND SPRAYED AROUND AND UNDER THE HOUSE--SO HOPEFULLY WE WON'T GET ANY ANTS OR OTHER CRITTERS.
IT IS ALMOST MIDNIGHT, SO BETTER HIT THE HAY---HAVE TO GO TO THE BANK TOMORROW AND GET ADDRESS CHANGED ETC. GOODNIGHT ALL
