The day after Christmas

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Wed Dec 27, 2006 4:58 am

When we got up this morning it didn't feel like the day after Christmas. Now, I don't know how it's supposed to feel, just that it didn't. I was going to make oatmeal for breakfast but dr wanted to go to Prescott to a sporting goods store sale. We stopped at McDonald's for a bagel with eggs and sausage. We went to the sporting goods place. It's mostly gun stuff so I stayed in the truck. He said it was really busy so he was going quite a while. We really didn't encounter a lot of shoppers at other places. Costco wasn't any busier than usual and no one seemed to be buying large amounts of stuff. We stopped at K-Mart pharmacy and that store was practically empty. WalMart had a lot of cars but they generally do so it didn't look to be any more busy than a normal day. We didn't stop there. We stopped at the grocery store to fill our water bottles and buy some dog food and it was mostly empty. I don't know where all the after Christmas shoppers were but not where we were. As usual we just went for a few things and ended up being tied up most of the day. I guess it's because things are so far from where we live. Small town living does have drawbacks but it's better than city living any day.
I found out from Tom yesterday that I made our motel reservations at the wrong motel so this morning I called and cancelled them and got new reservations at the right motel. I did call the right motel first and made sure I could get a room before I cancelled the reservations at the wrong motel. I was surprised when there wasn't a cancellation fee. But at least we are going to be in the right place now, not ten miles down the road.
I didn't get the yard raked but I guess there is always another time for that. Maybe tomorrow morning if it doesn't start to rain or snow. A mix is predicted. Yuck!!! I just got snow on Friday. It's too soon for more snow. Maybe it's a good thing we are going to a lower altitude. Nothing but sunshine for down there. Sometimes the storms stay in the mountains and go around the valley.
DR says he is feeling better today but Dan is still coughing. I think because he isn't getting enough rest. He's had to work. His ass't went away for the holidays and couldn't work for him. Chance says I should do something for her. Maybe it's time for her to go to bed. Dooley

I'm really pleased you managed to change your reservations Dooley and that they didn't take a cancellation fee from you.
I haven't been out of the house since Friday - just too much to do indoors and anyway I hate shopping - unless it's for the garden of course!!!

Glad DR is feeling better Dooley. Does Chance ever give you a moment's peace?

Sounds like you had a great day, Dooley. I hate shopping as well. If it were not for online, I would have nothing. I don't have much now and prefer it that way....unless it's plants, of course.

I'm glad you got a motel room where Tom is staying. Maybe you will see more of Erin. Please remember to take your camera and take pictures. I always forget to get mine out. Tell Tom hi for me, is he going to come to the reunion? Have a nice day. Wannabe

Glad you got your reservations changed Dooley and I am glad DR is feeling better. I will keep y'all in my prayers for a safe trip. Where will Chance be staying while you are gone? Have fun.

BTW, all the shoppers have been at WalMart #532 in Gonzales, Louisiana. We have been unbelieveably busy these last 2 days.
