Re: Daily Check in Oct 13, 2019

DH and I went out for lunch and I have been hand-sewing a frayed seam on his work trousers. They are canvas and the seam is too heavy to go through the sewing machine. It is s...

Re: Daily Check In October 12th

Thank you, everyone. I will not stick around even one second past 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. I do want a part-time job that I can leave there when the office door closes for the day.

DS and I went to get our flu shots Sunday at the Wal-Mart pharmacy. I discovered that my insurance, which is through DH's employer, had reduced dependent benef...

Re: Eyeglass cleaner

I have worn glasses since I was 9 and have always been careful with them. (You do that when you can't see squat without them!)
