Didn't do much today. Still cold out. I did go get some cat food, she's almost out. And I stopped and got lunch.
Trying to work on finances. Thinking we had it all figured out, I remembered something big and that throws everything else off. My head hurts thinking about it. We'll talk when dh gets home and figure out the best way to handle all of it. Not a huge deal. We could just keep plugging along the way we are. Did I say my head hurts?
Not sure about dinner. After yesterday's fiasco, I thought it was fine, but dh had something to say, I don't feel like cooking. I'll let him figure out his own dinner, since I ate lunch and don't feel hungry right now. I can munch later if I need to.
Haven't worked on the quilt in a couple of days. Maybe I'll try to get a bit done before dh gets home.
Need to figure something out with our back gate. One of our dogs has been getting out. The neighbor saw him and came over to tell me. It's just big enough he can crawl under. Dh said he'd work on that when he gets home. I think I'll be watching Survivor tonight and maybe fold laundry.

Looks like a beautiful day. Unfortunately I slept in way too long. So my day is off to a slow start. Getting up with the puppy multiple times has finally caught up with me.
I'll gather the trash to take out and finish up some laundry. I'll spend a little bit catching up on my reading and then spend a good amount of time sewing today. I'm way behind. I'll probably still do 30 minute intervals with the other stuff in between.
It's usually the day to visit my parents, but we had lunch yesterday for my sister's birthday, so I'm not going over today.
I'll see what dh wants to eat for dinner. I think we've cleaned out all the leftovers. Oh wait, I think he mentioned salad. Maybe I'll slice some steak to eat with it. I'll find something else for me. I don't think salad is the best option for my gut right now.

It's turning out to be a wonderful day. We were able to get a decent price for airline tickets from southwest. They have military fares, but only for certain flights and it all worked out for ds to come home for a few days. He'll have to send his dog on a different airline, but we'll be down one dog. It looks like we'll be keeping the other one. I guess she used to be really mean, and dil doesn't want to deal with her. I think she's a sweetheart. I would have missed her the most. So I guess we have our 3 dogs now.
Last night I tried to license ds' car, but they gave me the runaround. I looked up what they do for military, except for one possible thing, they should have done it. I went to another location, not run by the same company, and was in and out in no time. There were a few questions, but I was able to convince them I had all the paperwork. The only thing that was questionable was the odometer//vin verification. They wanted an actual inspection form completed. I told them I had asked ds to do that and that was the paper they gave him. They took it. Yeah!!!! That's done. He can take his plates back with him. Renewal is a piece of cake. I have a POA, so I can take care of all that stuff.
I then went to visit my parents. Found out they only have their burial plots, no funeral plans. I was sure they had prepaid one plan and when they got the insurance would get the other one. So I will probably keep one cc open to pay for their funeral until I get the insurance back. Then I'll prepay the next one with the insurance. There's no way my sister would be able to help. I hope to have the cash saved so I don't have to use credit.
Not sure about dinner. It's been so crazy. I think we'll all be glad when Saturday is over. Actually Monday, when everyone starts leaving. Then life can get back to somewhat normal.

sometimes animals are mean because that is the vibe they get from that person.

Another chilly day, but warmer than the past two. I need to get out and finish Christmas shopping. Mostly getting gift cards and a few little things for youngest dgd. She loves books, so maybe some board books that she can't tear up.
I was able to get a lot done at home yesterday. Wrote a few thank you notes and got some other mailings finished. Got a load of laundry washed and in the dryer. Still need to fold it. I hope to finish the backing on my quilt. I would also like to get a tree put up. Not sure if it will be the big one or the small one. Most likely the small one. It just isn't feeling like Christmas, but I want to do something for the grandbabies. I'm also thinking a haircut and color will help me feel better too. Of course the color will be done at home.
Dinner tonight will be leftovers or pork chops. Dh has a dental appointment and may not feel like eating anything.

I'm feeling a bit sad today. It was two years ago we said goodbye to my best buddy. (He's my avatar as a puppy). I still miss him, even though I have added two more dogs since. I think I will miss him forever.
Going to visit my parents and drop off their gifts. We could spend Christmas with them, but I just can't handle my sister and her son. She just yells really loud at him. He is mentally disabled. I just can't handle that part of the family. My sister's family is so disfunctional. I don't need that right now.
Stopping at the post office to send ds' package. Then stopping off to pick up one more gift card. Forgot about my niece, so I gave her one that I already had. Need to get a new one. I really need to start sewing on the quilt. It's all pinned together. I think I'll wrap gifts first so I can clear off the sewing table some more. It was okay for piecing, but now for the quilting, I really need more room. I do need to get the gifts out to make sure it looks fair. I may need to pick up another small gift for one of the dgds, but I think I'm okay on gifts.
Not sure what I'll do for dinner tonight. I think there is some chicken I can thaw out. That should work.
