Now that the moving is done (I have to go back and read the water meter today, before the signing, but that is all), I thought I would try to catch up on a few things. I refuse to confess how long it took me to empty out that house and clean it, but it was a lot longer than I anticipated. Thanks to friends and family for making it happen.
In stark contrast, today I'm kind of feeling like a Lady of Leisure, since I took a vacation day for the closing.
First of all, there was this, from the Rapid City paper on 9/12. I don't know which is the more bizarre headline; that they've used the Crazy Horse monument as a backdrop for a 9/11 commemoration, or that the locals are excited about a second WalMart.
this t-shirt, regarding fighting terrorism since 1492....also, I happen to be one of those snobs who refuses to shop at WalMart (at least I will until there is nothing else left).
This is a Christmas gift in progress. It's not a surprise - she picked out the yarn from my stash, so I can post about them (this is the yarn that some thought looked blood-stained when I posted a photo of the hank):
That's it for today :-) Thanks for listening.
