    Wednesday

    Drove to next town over to pick up Dh's paycheck - he's not working this week
    Deposited paycheck, Avon money, mileage reimbursement in bank
    Opened a Christmas Club account for next year - put $5 in
    Went to Family Dollar - bought Fab Softener, TP, Bleach
    Went to Save-A-Lot - spent $8 on items needed to get us thru the middle of Dec - still need to spend another $10 but that's it
    Delivered several orders and got payment

    We needed to stack more wood - it snowed yesterday and everything is slushy outside. We did stack about 1/3 or what was needed, but we really do need to get more done. Tomorrow we will do more before going to In-Laws for Thanksgiving.
