I took a half tramadol last night, so slept fitfully but pain-free for a few hours.. Then in the chair later.
Up to grocery shop and home to run dishwasher, start laundry, fold laundry, toss junk mail and start to organize bills. DD got a free AARP membership from Walgreen for me when she got three Rx's filled a couple days ago.. I love it when hey give it to you on the cash register receipt. I have not paid for a membership in years. I registered my AARP card at Walgreen for double savings and that saved me $16 for one year membership again.
Had to get some birthday cards in the mail, start to clean fridge interior too.
Of all things, I need to vacuum my OVEN. Yes, oven. When I cleaned it, there were a pile of ashes on the bottom, so need to get those out before using it tomorrow ..
I am roasting a half turkey for dinner tomorrow..
I just finished hauling in groceries this morning when the very black sky opened up and we got a deluge!! It sounded like the train was rushing through behind the house, but was the rain!!
I ponder today the reason for the holiday this weekend.. The labor riots to gain today's modern rights and safety measures in our workplace. I treasure the sacrifices and pain the people went through for the future generations.
