It's that time of the year....

and I completely lost track of the morning. I have been to the pharmacy, Food Depot and Kroger where I spent money at each of them. I have a Wednesday rant concerning the pharmacy. This is the second month in a row where they haven’t had the meds needed to fill all of my scripts. This means I have to make another trip in a couple of days to pick them up. I don’t like this as I only go to my pharmacy once or twice a month. This is a huge 24 hour pharmacy and I think they should keep better track of their ordering. But, this is just one of those small things that isn’t worth getting excited over, not worth the effort. Not gonna matter a tiddleypoop 100 years from now.
It is bitter cold this morning and very windy. We had snow flurries yesterday that did settle some on the ground and on the windshield of my car. I think it must be time for me to start my countdown to Spring. I don’t do winter well, but since I am not wealthy I can’t afford to live in the south in the winter time.
I think I have the Christmas present thing all wrapped up and I mean literally. Today I got gift cards to send to my brother and SIL. I don’t have any cards addressed yet but I will get to that this weekend to go into the mail on Monday. I received my first Christmas card a couple of days ago. It was beautiful. I opened the card up and inside was advertising and a free coupon to allow me to have a hearing test for free. Where do these places get our addresses?? I have received numerous pieces of mail addressed to me and to Jim to from businesses at home that I did not leave a forwarding address with. They all have the correct address for me now. I guess this is another rant because I confess it irritates me having to shred up all of that stuff.
I made peanut butter fudge and chocolate fudge yesterday. I have one more candy to make and that is peppermint bark candy. The peppermint tastes just like Fannie Mae peppermint melts. Just melt a package of Nestle’s white chocolate chips in the microwave. Add crushed peppermint candy canes and spread on a cookie sheet that you have sprayed with pan spray or buttered. When hardened break into pieces. YUMMMMMMMMMMM! Next week I make cookies and chex mix. The plans now are for my son to come home on the 11th and that will be our first Christmas. Have to have everything ready to send goodie packages home.
