As their Christmas Present, my youngest daughter took her friends ice skating. I drove, she paid. They had a good time… I went shopping, so I did too! I hit a few stores that still had some, after Christmas sales going. Gotta love 75% off! Then there was a book store going out of business. Hardback books, 2.00, paperback books 1.00! I was in heaven! They still had a good selection of children’s books, tons of fiction, travel books, some ‘how to’, and a big section on raising different kinds of animals. I love books, my sister loves books and we have the big family Easter Egg hunt coming up, sooooo.
They were out of my favorite ones, cookbooks!
When we were all finished, they were hungry. (Not a surprise) They wanted to hit an "all-you-can-eat" buffet.
They bascily ignored the food, and pretty well demolished the dessert bar! Who knew 12 year old girls could pack away so many sweets!
Me??? I was trying very hard to behave. I love their clam chowder, and homemade rolls. I did have a rice crispie treat for dessert.
After about an hour, I rolled the girls out the door, and headed home. They all fell asleep almost as soon as we hit the road…. ahhhh sweet silence!
How’s everyone doing? How did your New Years Eve go?
Oh, my friend Melanie sent me the book, "Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul" for my birthday. I’ve started reading it, and so far have cried through every story. It’s wonderful! We’ve been friends since High School, (I knew her in grade school, but, didn’t like her, LOL) She’s the smartest, funniest, kindest person I know, and does she know me or what?? lol
Our Little Man is about 3 & 1/2 lbs, and learning to nurse! I’m so thankful for all of your prayers and support… keep’em coming! BIG HUGS, Steph
