    Great news about your mom Daylily!

    I never did get to the dishwasher or coupons yesterday.

    *I got bad info on the location of one store. On the way back from the only store my car blew up - it started spewing something from under the hood and overheated. So had to call AAA, my son-in-law (thank the good Lord for him) and go to Goodyear with the tow truck driver who was very nice. That set me behind well over 2 hours. I still had to go to drop off at the thrift shop (which I forgot to list), so my daughter took me and we ate lunch out. Made other arrangements for picking up ingredients for tonight and came home. Finally got here at about 4:00. YUCK!

    Tomorrow's list of only the absolute necessities for leaving home:
    1. mammogram
    2. CVS for prescriptions

    Oh ephofma! I hope your car is okay - what was spewing out of it?

    EmilyD you are really cranking along, and looks like you've got mostly fun stuff left (at least looks fun to me, but I'm a little strange ). I'd like to get some tips from you on how the family files are being organized. My mother wants me to make sense of her piles of notes some day.

    Called my mother, so today is done. Did 4&5 from tomorrow as well.
