Back to Normal

Things always feel like they are in place when I am able to do my usual Saturday morning Costco trip. And that's what I did today. Thankfully the rain took a pause while I was there so nothing got wet.

Nothing really interesting to report about but I got a clue that I am getting older and older. I bought a case of paper and just putting it in the cart, then loading it in the car and after getting home, carrying it in the house was a struggle! Now my back hurts. At least it's better; this afternoon I couldn't even stand up straight! How pathetic, lol..

And I am sad to report that today I retired the pair of sandals I wear around the house. I've used them daily since 1998; I remember buying them during our trip to Hawaii, at K-Mart of all places. I think that's pretty good that they lasted nearly 12 years, which probably works out to about a dollar per year.

Why retire them? The left side is starting to leave black marks on the tile and linoleum. I tried cleaning them but that's not it - the material is just deteriorating so there's not much I can do unless I wear a sock over my foot and over the sandal, too.

The other day Julie and I went to McD for lunch. She likes their iced coffee. The one near us has a big sign up over the soda machine announcing that refills are only valid for the same visit. Haha, that's probably there for the same people who fill up their soda cups with onions, ketchup, relish and mustard at Costco and take it home with them.

Anyway, she asked the guy if there were refills on the iced coffee, and he said no, there aren't. I said we should take the empty filet of fish box to him and ask if there were refills for those.
