Jeepers, I hope you're feeling better!
Homesteader, the drill and tools on the kitchen counters--we've been there before! I hope everything goes smoothly.
LittleSister, I haven't shopped at Big Lots in a long time. I used to find good deals there a long time ago, then ours went downhill. I hope your DH is doing better.
Mt Rider, that's great news about your car! Sorry about the struggles and challenges of your friends.
We took the Christmas tree and few decorations down last weekend. I officially finished the last of the undecorating by getting the Christmas placemats off the table and washed. I kept looking at them at supper every night, thinking, tomorrow, I really need to change those out...day after day.
