Woot - have been in an e-mail campaign to keep my daughter in the same high school until she graduates - new one is ready for the next school year. Looks like it works :) Sometimes it really does help to speak-up :) I started sewing embellishments on my Black Friday bath towels from Wal-Mart - $2.20 each - I already broke 3 sewing machine needles - just got 2 packs. Hope I have better luck. On top of that - when I put the machine on the dining table - I pulled a muscle :( I hope to have a few towels finished tomorrow. Mail was good - I got my annual gift for being a mail decoy. This year, instead of cashews - I got mixed nuts. I will be taking them to work to share them for "snack day". I also have a coupon to use at Earthfare - free lb of chuck with a $5 purchase - their truffles are to die for - so, for around $5 - I will get a box of trubbles - to add to the nuts - and I believe I am done gift shopping for the rest of this month. Oh, as a treat for myself - and of course in case we put the house up for sale so we could change school districts - I purchased a house cleaning groupon. It will be nice to have someone else do the stuff I hate at 1/2 the price.
