Errand Day

Today was busy. 10920 steps, and that's before I walk around the kitchen preparing dinner.

This morning I ran through the checklist pretty quickly, leaving the paper and coupon sorting for the bowling alley, and quicken for the evening. I also finalized the grocery shopping list.

I was bowling for my team today. Knight is still out because of his back, and Grace is in Mississippi this week, visiting family. I only won one game, but I bowled over my average (141) for the series: 130, 153, 147. I won the second game.

We skipped Sam's this week. The only thing on the list was spaghetti noodles, but I had lots of coupons for that, and Sam's doesn't take coupons, so I added it to the Kroger list. We went by work and picked up a check for Flar, then the allergist, then to Kroger. I swapped cars with Flar so that the boys could unload the groceries while we went back out. Mom treated Flar to a tank of gas, and we got my new license plate. Seven minutes. We had to wait for at least two people in front of us. :)

Back home, I got a snack and sat down to read email/LJ and enter info into Quicken. Critter brought me another recipe from Deus Ex for dinner tonight (we bought steaks from the "buy today" selection of meat); I've cleared the bath tub area early so that Daddy could take a bubble bath (I'm taking one later tonight); and I got to look at Critter's new tracklights. Pictures to follow later. I also went ahead and brought in today's mail.

Now I'm off to update Quicken, then fix dinner: blackened (and plain) ribeyes, mac-n-cheese, baked potatoes and teriyaki veggies.

Tonight we shall eat at our pretty holiday table in the dining room, and break open the Christmas crackers.
