All errands and grocery shopping done. Aldi's had empty registers by the time I finished shopping. Walmart was busy, but almost every U Scan was empty and they only had 1 register with a cashier open. Prices are up again, some shelves are empty again.

I had a talk with the Coke guy in the soda row. Noone can seem to explain why there is coke, diet coke, coke zero, sprite etc..but no cherry coke. He said its a shortage of aluminum to make the cans and C02? Then how are they making all of the other flavors, and why is the Pepsi row almost always full of everything? Makes no sense to me.

Stopped at Kohls to do an Amazon return, and then, for the first time ever, our car showed a low tire pressure alert. I guess between sitting for a few month and the cold weather..they had gone down. We stopped at Sheetz, but their machine was broken (big surprise, not), and then to Loves Travel Stop,,where 5 minutes of air costs $2?? Air is free,,why do we have to pay for it? I did because we were low,,all 4 tires showed 22 lbs,,so I added air and brought them up to the 35 they are supposed to be.

On Monday, for my one month follow up , I am going to ask the structural/Interventional/cardiologist who worked on me, (the very cute one, lol), if I can drop the Eliquis down to once a day, I keep getting slight nosebleeds if I go outside when it's cold out, and got one while bending down this morning putting air in the tires. I can't go through the whole winter like this :( Thankfully nothing like the gushing one I had the first time, but I still don't want it to keep happening. I also have an appt with my new PCP on Monday.

Mr L is taking a nap,,its gray and chilly outside. Think I am going to make a cup of hot cocoa (with marshmallow fluff in it), and finish a Hallmark movie.

Have a nice rest of the day all

Lots of things to comment on.

Well, DD and I went to Chik Fil A yesterday and look what happened!
That looks so good. I am trying to talk myself out of going today to get one.

We have trouble getting Sprite Zero. And one week there was no Diet Coke, only Coke Zero. We buy bottles, not cans.

our car showed a low tire pressure alert.
My car does that occasionally but it it not actually low, I just have to reset it.

Can I suggest added Bailey's Irish Cream.

Good afternoon friends, sorry I'm "later" today. I'm here :) So extra grateful this morning to God for His continued and of, course, constant grace, mercy, and love! Dad got wonderful doctor news at his appointment earlier. He has one more regular doctor visit this year. We are so beyond blessed indeed. Praise God!

Thank you, Judique, for the Campbell's links. I really appreciate that, my friend :) I wish the snow globe choice said "Merry Christmas." I do not care for anything that is Christmas intended that says anything else (that has words). Not a fan at all of abbreviations or Happy Holidays. For me it is CHRIST-mas! :) Big hug, and I am truly so glad you are able to do do telehealth (more regular it sounds like) appointments with your doctor. My grandma for a time had type 2 diabetes. I know from her experiences that requires staying on top of indeed. Anything that makes doing so easier now for you, especially during this plague, is indeed a blessing extra and I'm truly glad. From your later post, I’m sorry you have had roof issues, too in the past.
What a beautiful story, dear Snowysmom! God absolutely had His angel Chris have you hear that song when you did. I love it and so pray the words and that gift brought you extra comfort and reassurance.

Easyas, I hope all went well for you yesterday with your appointment and getting any needed prescriptions. Oh no! I just read your later post :( Prayers sent your way, my friend that you feel much better very soon! Please take care indeed!

Sweetpeama, ITA with Easyas, how and why were you “not allowed” to put up a tree. To me, and I say this with all respect since of, course, I do not know your situation or what you meant, that rings alarm bells for sure :( I absolutely hope as other Quackers have suggested you did just leave some info out. Please clarify for us and know we ask because we care.

Another adorable picture, Lynn! I should watch something Pooh related, so cute :) I hope you find what you need in the store, my friend and get home (well by now are home) safely and quickly! I do agree it seems like supply is lowering while prices rising :( A good time to try to stock up some again. Prayers all-around, you know that, for your follow up appointment on Monday.

Oh no! Big prayers indeed, Footballmouse. I truly hope the roofer was able to (and for not too costly a price tag either) stop any leaks! Hug also and extra prayer that you will get to go to dinner tonight with your friend. Yikes, I read your later post and am so sorry for the added un needed drama and stress :(

I hope you both enjoyed your Christmas movies, Carol and PollyannaMom. Wednesday hug to you both, of course!

Hooray at last you got a peppermint treat, Pea! I do hope it was extra tasty!

Dad will soon be going to a Pavilions that said had the small potted Christmas trees we are hoping to get. Seems like Christmas trees are another item shortage this year! Once we have it, it'll be easier to figure out ornaments. It's a little warmer today here, still chilly for me though. But a most blessed Wednesday indeed.

Please stay well and warm everyone!

Footballmouse I hope the roof repairs turn out not to be too expensive. It is frustrating when the contractor won't take care of work that they originally did.

@flyingdumbo127 Glad to hear your Dad is doing well. You both are indeed blessed. I hope you get the Christmas tree you want.

Peppermint is everywhere in this thread. I have never been to a Chik Fil A but the shake does look good.

@Pea-n-Me It sounds like your SIL is pretty much moving along on her own timeline for grieving. Everyone is different and need to do what is right for them and take care of themselves. I also believe that the suddenness of a loss compounds the grief. There is a book, It's OK not to be OK, that I found very helpful. My therapist recommended it. I am not a person who does well with groups so I am content with my therapist. Finances is a big item to take care of and is so daunting. Glad she found a good financial planner. I am waiting for the life ins claim to be approved and paid. Then my advisor, my younger DS, and I will go to the investment company to take a look at everything and decide what is in my best interest for the future. He is so knowledgeable it makes me proud and makes my brain spin a bit. He already came with me to the bank to discuss the IRAs I have there and he just took over and asked all the right questions and we came up with a plan.


I worked this morning and went to the house this afternoon just for a quick visit. I put out the trash for tomorrow, moved the old minivan back to the usual place, and vacuumed older DS's room as he took his bed to his house for older DGS. They were hoping it would make older DGS stay in his own bed since it is a full sized comfortable bed. No such luck. He still gets up during the night and goes in with Mom and Dad. The floor was dusty where the bed was. I vacuumed my room around all the stuff that is waiting to go somewhere and then the hallway and bathroom. This weekend will be the kitchen along with swiffering the floor. The filled dumpster was gone and the new smaller one in its' place. It looks like a baby dumpster compared with the other one. Only younger DS can come to clean this weekend but he is very diligent and keeps busy. He can fill alot of that dumpster quickly.

It is supposed to snow a little bit, just a coating to an inch, but it has not started yet. It can stay away.

Have a nice evening.

:hug:Snowysmom and thank you.

Poor Dad, wasted trip. No tress that looked good. He had also gone to a different Staples hoping they would have a chair for me, zip just a very fancy (it sounded like) type of Staples store that he had never seen before. Even Dollar Tree was a bust because they didn't have much plus the two items he was going to get, he said there were a good 20 people in line, yikes! So thankful he's almost home.

Getting cooler here already :( Supposed to rain tomorrow. I did finally order a robe on Amazon that was supposed to come today but hasn't moved much past shipping. Now it says Friday and through the post office. I just hope I like it.

Have a good evening everyone!

    Warm and toasty here! Already in pajamas at 7, and dogs hogging the fire as usual:flower:

    I know! I'm already planning on another ice cream purchase and I'm not really into peppermint. But this year - something about it just is really appealing to me!

    Have not been able to sleep since my knee surgery,,,, so I thought I'd give a little bump up to our thread, Sleep well, friends:surfweb:
    That will pass. It took me a long time to be able to sleep well after knee surgery. For 5 weeks I slept in the recliner. and that was not good sleep. Then I slowly started going back to bed, starting with 2 hours and working my way back to the entire night. I hope your recovery is going well.

    Good morning all. Going to be another chilly day here..high of 41. @Pea-n-Me I was in my pjs before you, lol. I took a long hot bath around 4 while Mr L was sleeping and got into some nice warm light fleece Old Navy ones. Trouble is, I had ordered them in a larger size, and now that I have lost 25 lbs, they are all too big,,I have to pull the pants string so tight it looks like I have clown pants on..lol

    Today will be stripping and remaking the beds, passing the swiffer duster, and then vacuuming. Have to do the kitchen floor too, and still haven't heard from the floor guy. Not even a reply to the text I sent yesterday. I am going to text him again this morning, ask if his truck is fixed, and ask him to have the courtesy to let us know when he's going to finish the job. At this rate, we aren't even sure we want him to be the one to install 2 new doors :(

    @dazedx3. I hope that you can get some sleep soon, I know how too well how tough it is when you can't fall asleep, or can't stay asleep. I hope your knee is healing well

    Have a QUACKY Thursday everyone!

    Good Thursday morning.

    It's cold here in Cincy and we had our first snow yesterday morning. I am not ready for winter, I wish it would just skip on by :cold:.

    Ds2 stop by last night to look at the ceiling. He's confident that him and ds1 can fix the ceiling. That was good news. I finally got my nephew's side of the story about who put the roof on. I'm still not happy about it but what's done is done, he won't be fixing anything at my house ever again. Ds2 said that it all it needs is flashing around the chimney, he can do that. I'm done worrying and stressing about it. I'm working from home today so I can relax and get things cleaned up around the house. I don't want to be stressed out for the wedding this weekend.

    I did get meet up with my friend last night. We went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner and drinks. We were there for 4 hours talking and laughing. We finally took the hint that the restaurant was closing when we noticed the workers putting on their coats :rotfl2:. Sorry people, but we had a lot of catching up to do.

    I'm going to try this click list thing at the grocery store today. I think by doing this, it will save me money b/c I won't just randomly being putting things in my cart. I have it scheduled to be picked up later today, hopefully all my items will be in the bags.

    Back to work. Hope everyone has a great day! :)
