Really bad driving today but I went into the food shelf anyway. Because of it being closed 2 Wednesdays in a row, and the fact that Thursday and Tuesday volunteers do little in the freezer, I needed to get in there and straighten things out. We get meat from stores every day and it can really pile up if it isn't sorted everyday or at least 3 days a week, which is when I usually come in.

Hope everyone has a safe NYE. I’m cleaning house and doing laundry today. No plans for tonight.

I'm hoping to find some more to sell today, as I've had good luck getting rid of things that way the past few days. Don't want to push my luck, though.

It's bright and sunny and still cold. A few errands I could run, nothing urgent. May start some laundry, too.
We had plans with friends for this evening, but that is falling apart. Glad I didn't spend a bucket of money on snacks. DH and I will watch a movie at home.

We don't do NYE.....husband will be in bed way before midnight but I will stay up to watch the ball drop.
Running to Hallmark today....my sister is looking for a yearly angel.....she gets one every year and her hallmark closed.
Was very good yesterday...went to Target and purchased 0 dollars....now on Sunday I did spend $50 there....got pencils, socks, lots of small stuff for my shoeboxes...I'm committed to making 365 pencil packs for fillers so took my $50 gc from Amazon and got 250 pens, 288 Ticonderoga pencils and 144 eraser tops. So, I'm on my way.....have $50 in rewards and points at Wags so hoping I can find some small toys on sale to add to shoeboxes.....
Have a safe New Year's Eve everyone....may 2020 brings you joy, health and wealth....

Did the run to the grocery store for the breakfast sale. They were out of "free" store brand OJ and substituting the expensive fresh squeezed kind. Oh darn. On the other hand Aldi was completely cleaned out of christmas cookies when I stopped, and looking like they had missed a truck delivery, too.
NYE movie watching party has shifted to a different house. I checked that both bags of pita chips are still good and combined them to take, with artichoke dip. Also taking 2 packages of cookies. Got a bottle of wine out of the garage.
DH had half a day of work, we are just going to relax until evening.
