Posting Late Today!

 I can offer no reason for the delay in posting today.  It's not like I overslept.  Indeed, I couldn't sleet well at all, and finally gave up on that after waking up more than eight times between 1:00 and 1:50 am. 

So, I got up at ten minutes before two and started my day substantially earlier.  What did I do?  A friend had done me a tremendous favor and edited a story of mine, sending it back for me to look over.  So I opened that file and started making corrections and improvements to the flow.  I sent it back to her for a final look-through and hit the road by 6:15 am. 

I had a long list of errands.  1) Open up the shop - while there I emptied the garbage and took the cardboard out for recycling.  2) I had some time to wait until Target opened at 8am, so I went to Perkins and had breakfast - a potato flip, a potato pancake enveloping scrambled eggs and bacon with a side of fresh fruit.  Nummy!  3) 8:00 am - called DH to wake him up, then went to Target.  Needed some hair conditioner, toothpaste and other silly things.  4) 8:15 am - crossed the street to get to Staples.  Good sale going on - with their instant rebate, got two reams of paper for the shop for 50 cents each!  Great deal!  5) 8:30 am - back in the car and heading to the post office to mail two Priority Mail packages.  6)  8:45 am - headed to my accountant's place to hand in an IRS notice about a charge they are assessing in error.  I talked to Paul yesterday and he'll handle this for me, so happy, happy.  7) 8:55 am - on to the city Licence Bureau to get the new license tabs for DH's car.  8) 9:15 - Dropped by the local convenience store to get Renaissance tickets for Chickie and Sharon for Labor Day weekend.  No luck though, they haven't received their tix yet.  No problem, I have time on this one.  9)  9:30 - Home again and catching up on Emails and notifications.  First load of laundry is in the washer. 

I still have to go to the drugstore and the grocer later today, and I have one more load of laundry to get done.  Then I have to clean, clean, clean.  And if I can get a short nap in, I'm sure it would be a positive thing.  Oy!  Too much to do :-)
