First day of school

FREEDOM!

Well, after two days we finally made it out! Lake and River Barzakis have retreated and the lake at the end of the road decreased enough so the middle of the road was dry! So, we made our escape!

We drove all the way out to the mall and went to Barnes and Nobles (to buy some fun books!) JCPenny and a few other stores. We ended at Walmart where we did a major food shop and picked up a few Halloween items that were marked down to $.20. (You can't beat that price!)

The good news is that I finished all my holiday shopping! And, not only mine, but Bill's too! That's right, it's November 14 and I'm done! And, everything is wrapped and labled! Plus, the things being mailed out are packed up and ready to go! The only thing that isn't done are my holiday cards - I'm missing the pictures that I ordered to go in. So, those will hopefully be done by the end of next week. We have a free weekend next weekend before Thanksgiving, so I'm going to start baking my cookies for school.

Ahhh.. freedom is lovely :)
