BTW, you filled the propane bottle, right?

I just got back from grocery shopping. The more the afternoon went on, the less I felt like having nachos for dinner.
I'm not standing over him. I am nearby if he needs anything, like another glass of water.

Filled the propane bottle? Bought a brand new one. When it's empty you return it and they give you a full one for about $30.

I'm not particularly fond of any kind of shopping but I truly love to iron. Always have and spent some time this afternoon ironing all the now-clean shirts Glenn wore on our vacation. 'Bout a half dozen and several of mine. for some reason ironing always relaxes me and gives me a visible feeling of accomplishment. Yep, I'm weird.

Great! I'm sending some clothes your way. I'm a member of the sisterhood of the traveling pants that need ironing. I ordered a couple pairs of dress pants, and they've traveled from the bed to the dresser to the spare room. Hopefully they'll land on the ironing board at some point in time. I need to fire up the iron.

Thank you. With all the good news she got from her last MRI, those angels seem to be really watching over her and taking care of her. Thank you all. I find that I am not having as many sad and worried moments as before.

I do enjoy ironing. Like Katie said, it is very relaxing. I set up my old wooden ironing board and just wander into my own little world. I can daydream as long as I am ironing. Sometimes I will have my music on like Les Miserables and sing right along. Ironing gives me a sense of accomplishment when I look at all that I have done.
