Odd stuff Tuesday....

Very random stuff!


We had a very exciting weekend!  A new mailbox!  We were in L*wes  looking at door hardware and I saw this mailbox.  Our old mailbox was really ready for the mailbox cemetery, so here we are with a brand new one.  The only problem was that Sunday morning we didn't have a newspaper.  Apparently, the carrier puts a sticker on the boxes of people who get the paper.  It makes me wonder how my brother ever remembered who got the paper when he was a paper boy on a bicycle years ago, when it came on parchment paper!

Not only did he have to remember who got the paper, but he had to go each week and collect the money for the paper!  My how things have changed.









Sunday afternoon was a baby shower for my good friend, Sharon's daughter.  This will be son #2 and as you can see son #1 wasn't so keen on having his picture taken.  I think he was sick in general of the whole these aren't my presents thing.







I've been busy getting things ready for Thanksgiving.  I bought all my paper products (yes, we use paper on Thanksgiving!) and did a little extra fall decorating.  I'll have to post pictures of that later.  I've also been cleaning because I'm not sure how much I'll be able to do after next Wednesday when I have shoulder surgery.

It was a nice weekend and I can't believe it is Tuesday night already!

We use paper too! Otherwise, dishes become a chore. I have had shoulder surgery twice from a car accident in high school. Recovery is painful, but you will be glad you had it done once it heals. Take it easy. No cleaning for you! We will be praying for you.

I love paper. (sorry, earth -wincing- lol) Anyways, thanks for the comment...you have a lovely blog...I think this is the first time I've been here. Hope your shoulder surgery goes smoothly...and i hope it's not painful. =) PS when my mouth is getting worked on for anything besides cleanings, you better believe my rear end never touches the chair either...unless of course they give me something to MAKE me sleep...haha.

We use paper, too. Makes the day much more enjoyable, and they are so pretty!

Our paper delivery person keeps changing and it never seems to transfer to the new one that we insist on our paper being put on the step instead of the middle of the driveway.

My baby brother used to deliver papers on his bike in the downtown area of our town. When he comes to town to visit, he can't believe how all the houses he used to deliver to are not businesses instead of residences.

I think I forgot that you are having surgery next week!

I use paper too whenever possible in large groups because I like to visit and not be in the kitchen and the paper products now are so nice...lots to choose from too! Love the new mailbox and my husband and his brother were paper carriers and they had to remember what houses and collect all the $$$ too!

I will be praying for your shoulder surgery.
