We had a delicious meal at LoneStar then did a bit of shopping including a stop at Sam's. I didn't see any bargains there, not sure why we continue to go and buy. With no luck at all, bargains can be found easily at Food Lion with our MVP card. A quick swipe at the checkout and I saved $8.43 the last time I was there on just a few items.
A friend lost her sister unexpectedly this week, so I think I'll make a card for her. While my supplies are out, I might make a few other cards to have handy. Hope I never need another sympathy card. When I told a younger friend of mine that there seemed to be so many people dying these days, she commented that maybe it was the age group I was in. Ouch, that stung like a bee! But really, it does seem there are more than the usual number of deaths lately, and many with cancer.
Today, mom and I had lunch at an eatery sponsored by a local church. Their food is exceptional with generous portions. I had a 1/2 turkey sandwich and cup of chicken and dumplings. Yum, was it good. There were several people in there from the place where I used to work and there were some warm greetings and hugs and miss you's. Everyone seemed happy for me that I was able to quit work. Hate to see them have to keep working so hard, but their time will come.
I drove the long way home with many detours in order to enjoy the sunny day. I didn't take any pictures, nothing seemed worthy of a snap. Guess it was just my mood today. We stopped at a couple of shops but I didn't find anything worthy of my money slipping out of my wallet. I did stop in the computer store to pay a deposit for a new combination CD/DVD drive for my notebook computer. The owner said he had been duped by people ordering things which couldn't be returned, so now they require a deposit. Fine. So, they got half of the cost. Hopefully, the new part will be the answer. I have a memory card full of pictures that need to be saved to a DVD. Hope it works. If not, I'm thinking of buying a second laptop. Yep, Sam's had them. I looked. Money remained in the wallet for now.
One of the nursing managers was diagnosed with breast cancer
just a few short months ago.
She lost her battle with this cruel disease last night.
Her husband and son must be devastated and in a dizzying fog
since her life was cut down to just
a few remaining months.
It would be wonderful if a cure for cancer is found
I'm thinking a cup of ice cream would be nice about now. I walked mom's treadmill for over a mile today, which equalled more than 100 calories. Yippeee, my mood just zipped up a notch or two.
