Monday went fine; I guess. I can't remember anythig about it (that I can distinguish from the other days).
Tuesday I did not know I was going to be out of the house all day...but I was. I went to the doctor with Grandma and because she wanted to go to the grocery store on the way home and it was past lunch time, we went to Bob Evans. Then we dropped by one of the malls so Grandma could return a pair of shoes--she ended up getting some others to replace those. I think she liked them, but she still groused a little about the price--but good, solid, European-made leather shoes are worth the price.
From there we went to the grocery and thankfully, I didn't get the creeps this time from some man looking at me like last time (I had never had an expirence like that before!) Grandma had a little cart and I did such an awesome job of packing it (tootin' my own horn here!), that when all that stuff was finally put up on the conveyor belt and packed in sacks, it was like "Whoa, how'd we get all that in there?" Grandma had been telling me for a while that I was going to have to go get a bigger cart. I finally did--at the checkout line. :)
Because we needed water softener salt at the house, we went someplace else, where it is cheaper, and I ran in and picked up two bags of salt, three gallons of milk for Grandma and a bag of Great Northern beans (also for Grandma). (By the way, the reason Grandma wanted that many gallons of milk is because she's kind of stocking up because of the weather.) It was practically dark by that time and Grandma is not supposed to drive after dark (she could loose her license if she did), so I drove home. I have never driven Grandma's little yellow car before and I don't care if I ever do again. I do not like the way it handles.
Wednesday, I was once again out of the house most of the day--this time I did all the driving and I was driving something much nicer to drive--the wheelchair van. Katherine and I went to get our Christmas tree (and do a tiny amount of Christmas shopping)! We got a big, full, pre-cut Douglas Fir. It smells so very nice and looks rather pretty too. :)
There you have it folks...so far my week. In an hour or so, I'm going to wander down to the basement and get the furance started. It's going to get COLD here...
