So what did I do?
Walked the Button dog, we covered a longer distance today.
Found some cool baby toys at "Other Mothers" one of those stores where they recycle out-grown baby gear.
Now I have to clean and sanitize them.
Bought groceries, went to Pet Depot for dog food, ran by the quilt shop-I only bought half a yard of fabric- then to Costco.
Main reason I had to go to Costco, I killed the paper shredder!
I was really mad, you know all those obnoxious fat envelopes of ads you get in the mail? I know you get them too. I truly hate them with a passion-I have at times written "Return To Sender" and put them back in the mail! I get so angry, this paper pollution is an irresponsible waste and an uninvited burden on my life ! I just lost it, one too many pieces of junk mail, I tried to stuff the entire envelope through the shredder without separating the huge mass of paper garbage. All the while DH was saying "Honey it won't go, it will break the shredder, Honey it's not gonna work you'll break the shredder" and I continued to try to make it work, shove it down, hit reverse, shove it down some more, reverse again until I finally forced it through !
He was right, the shredder died!
You know the sound when a motor dies, it's a very sad sound but I was so angry I really didn't care! I wanted a better shredder anyway, a crosscut shredder, something that can handle an entire envelope of extraneous information, CD's, credit cards, floppies[does anyone have these any more?] and ten sheets of paper at a time!
Vroom vroom, I got one! My new paper shredder can do all this and not hiccup-at least that's what the box says I have yet to test it out, I'll let you know.
The day ended more happily, sweet DIL and DS#1 invited the rest of the family to celebrate at their home so we all met up there, we had birthday cake and singing and I got birthday hugs all around including from the oh so handsome grandsons, all three. Maybe there'll be some pics tomorrow
And that's my birthday blog.
