So we stayed home and...
cut out Halloween sugar cookies w/ little 2
DC ALOT!!!!!
clean a few bathrooms

My "job" on Tuesdays is reading to a couple of friends. One is blind, the other is severely crippled with arthritis. One asked me on Friday if there was something they could do to contribute to society in general. One of their care-givers is having a problem with her son, second grade, in grammar and science. She was getting ready to spend some hard-earned money to enroll him in Sylvan. I told her, "hold on a minute, I have many friends who are teachers, let me call them before you spend that." For some reason (duh) it occurred to me that .... well, heck, I can do it. She called her son's teacher, who happens to know me because of my writing. He is going to send me lessons. My blind and arthritic friends are tickled that it is going to be a group project. The child is thrilled because he thought he was stuck with just another school project that he could fail at. I'm SO pleased. So I'm going to start coaching grammar. I'm rather excited about the project.

Cleaned out my freezer, got rid of all freezer burned food, I hate waste. Now that I have a Food Saver, should be much less waste. When I pick up the free turkey, now I have room in the freezer.
