Well, Tootsie and I got up at 5 o'clock again this morning, but at least we got some good sleep. She hasn't been feeling so great the past two days, but so far this morning, she seems okay. My heart just breaks when she does not feel so good. Poor baby can't even whine like Mommy. But no matter, we spoil her anyway.
Yesterday, the weather was just crazy here. One minute I look out and everything has a light, white coat of snow on it. Next minute, the weather has taken a break and is doing nothing. Just a little left over wind blowing. Then within the hour, I hear raindrops going pat, pat, pat on the metal awning over my living room window.
An hour or so later, the pat pat pats are getting much sharper. I look out my window and for goodness sake!!! There is hail bouncing all over everything. You know folks, this is what they call traditional New England weather. The saying goes "If you don't like the weather, wait a little while and it will change."
To my friend, Nani, I would be ever so grateful if you really could hold off the snow for just another day or so till my plane could land in Florida. I think I really need this vacation. And you are just the sweetest person to offer to do such a nice thing for me. Of course, I know we can't change the weather, but it's such a lovely thought.
Now I have a humorous story for you. Late yesterday afternoon, after the weather decided to take a rest, Moo drove me around to do my errands. I got all our meds, and stocked up on all of Tootsie's favorite doggie foods and treats.
For Christmas this year, I got quite a few gift cards, one of which was for Walmart. I had already used it, but there was still some money left on it. So when the cashier finished totaling my order, I handed her the gift card and told her to use this up first, and I would pay for the rest. No problem!!
Well, first, the card would not go through. For about fifteen minutes, people behind me were being sent to other registers while we waited for a supervisor to come and help the cashier. After several attempts to make the card go through, a supervisor finally arrived and got the card to work. And I got all of my $0.02 credited toward my purchase.
Now doesn't that beat all? I felt so bad for that poor cashier for putting her through all of this for just two cents. Now I'm wondering why did anyone ever leave the darn two cents on the card in the first place? I will have to pay more attention to things in the future. I felt bad for Moo too, because he was standing there with me through this whole embarrassing situation.
There probably won't be a post tomorrow morning, because I hope to be on the road early. But I do have a freebie for you today. Today you get the Fire Opal QP. My favorite color is orange, so you just know that the Fire Opal is one of my very favorite gemstones. And it is gorgeous too!!
Now I'm off to finish up my packing and last minute things. Y'all have a fantastic day now. (And wish me luck that I don't have to don my Dumpster Dolly outfit in order to get on the internet down there!)
Hugs, Edna B.
