I am going to call my daughter in a little while and see what time she is going down into her yard. Then I am going to get dressed and head out the door to spend the afternoon with her. It is supposed to be warmer today than yesterday. Yesterday was brutal. The kind of chill that gets into your bones and doesn't want to leave. I hope who ever asked to have the heat shut off is freezing their backside off. My fingertips are so cold I can't feel the keys on the keyboard.

Just got back from our 90 minute round trip travel to Costco. It probably wasn't the best day to go, as it was rainy today and everyone and their mothers were there blocking aisles, snarfing samples, and giving me claustrophobia. We did get some good stuff in addition to the face wipes and TP we originally went to get.

I do my best to avoid Costco on weekends.

I'm a slow learner. But ours only has samples on the weekends, I'm cheap, and it's a free lunch!

Thinking the next Costco trip in a couple months will be on a Tuesday. Today was obscene.

Here there aren't a lot of samples. Besides, I find them annoying, 'cause I have to read the ingredients on the package before tasting. There is soy in so much stuff it isn't funny.

I'm lucky, just have to watch the sodium with the HBP, but have no other issues. I'm just too polite to tromp over people to get free food. Thinking it's the half Canadian, half midwest in me.

It probably didn't help that this is a holiday weekend.

My thoughts exactly! When the closest Costco used to be 3.5 hours away and we visited BIL outside of Chicago during Thanksgiving weekend, it was sort of expected, though not enjoyed.

Glenn and I are practically on our feet. We've been watching a Beach Boys 50th Anniversary concert. Omigosh, what wonderful music. They've still got IT!
