As soon as I get off this darn thing, I am going food shopping too. We are out of left-overs!!! I took off this week to get stuff done around the house - touch up painting inside and out but it's wet, damp, raining on and off (I like to paint ), sorting and dumping old files, closet clean up, shed clean up and will hit the stores sometime later this week. But all these activities are so boringggggg and the weather is not motivating AT ALL!

Sounds like my week. We have GOT TO clean out closets BIG TIME. I am soooooooooo dreading it. I've even got to clean out the closet that has my Christmas Tree and all the decorations. Why? Cause I bought all new stuff this year and in order to put it all up somewhere I've got to get the old stuff out. urgh......... But the tree has a new home to go to so for that I am happy.

You mean there are still Blue Law's? I didn't know that. I can remember as a kid here in Texas where we couldn't buy anything but food on Sunday's! That has been forever ago!

I am back at work today but may run to Office Depot after work and pick up some photo and copy paper...totally out. But that will be about it for me, so I can make some duplicates of the photos my daughter gave us for Christmas.

Oh yes! County Council held a vote to see if they would suspend them just for this Christmas Eve, since it was a Sunday. They voted no.

There is a fuss going on here in Georgia about the sale of alcohol on Sundays. This year, New Years Eve is on Sunday and the local bars, that usually make a killing on that night, will not be serving. We will probably see a decline in accidents on New Years Eve.
I prefer house parties on that evening anyways. Being from Florida, I just found it a bit strange. Gotta get planning !
