Money showed up in my bank account.

Now I can buy a "new" used Volvo. The one I have is 20 years old and showing it.

Nothing much got done today other than a load of laundry, cooking supper, eating, watching "The Mist," and watching a little TV.

Was glad that my Dad is resting more comfortably today and got some time with my hubby watching "Unforgettable".

A PR friend once told me, if you are working on a shoestring and want to scare up business, go through the yellow pages and send notices to full page ads. They are the ones with the big bucks. Also if you can find out the name of the secretary, all the better. She is the one who will ordeer the catering.

After a long, hot, relaxing shower I nearly tripped on a toddler hug and found myself smeared with toddler boogers.

Feeling flu-ey, worked on machine-embroidering my quilt ALL DAY (between naps, watching TV news, reading). Flu makes me very sleepy-tired. But not too tired to run a sewing machine, heh.

Lol! Cute. As much as I want to find a place for Rol and I so we can get out of the family's basement and let them get back to normal, I'm going to miss seeing the niece and nephews every day.
