Wow, only eight more days until Christmas, and fifteen more days until 2013. Are you ready? This year Santa has to watch his weight, so be sure to leave out non-fat milk and sugar/calorie free cookies for him on Christmas Eve. Is there such a thing as calorie free cookies? Hmmm, I'll have to look into this. These would be great for snacks.
Mrs. has been extremely crabby and not very nice lately. It makes for an unpleasant night at work. If I didn't need to work, I might have quit last night. I try to understand her dementia and make allowances for her age, but I really don't think there is a valid excuse for being nasty to people.
Some good news..... I got an email from Su last night. She is home from the hospital, and will be posting on her blog sometime today. Yeahhhhhh! Su, it's good to have you back. I've missed you!
This morning I am posting Parts 3 & 4 of "A Child's Xmas". Su's parts will go up later in the week when she has a chance to get caught up. Here's my preview and your download links.
Yesterday, I went shopping at Walmart. Do you remember all their TV ads that say " We match anyone's prices. Our prices can't be beat! Bring us your receipt and we'll match their price." Well, that's a false statement. According to the store supervisor at the Walmart nearest to me, those ads don't apply to all Walmart stores. Unfortunately they don't tell you which stores they do pertain to.
I brought them a receipt from BJ's, and they said they could not match the price. Even if they could, they could not do it from a receipt. Somehow, this feels to me like false advertising. If Sam Walton could, he would roll over in his grave. His wonderful stores have been going steadily downhill.
They no longer have family values, their stores are badly understaffed, the quality of their products is not as good as it used to be, and employees are no longer treated with respect. The almighty dollar is the only thing that is important to Corporate Walmart today. This is sad.
Before I go off on another tangent, I will take my leave here. Pretty soon it will be time to pack up my things and go home. It's been a long night. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
