I should have been writing my speech for Monday night. But then I kept wondering why the dryer was churning and churning and never making that finished sound. So I went to check. It died out on me. No heat. Nothing. Great timing!! So with the help of my friends on Facebook, I got an idea of a name brand. Then I got Dennis to help me search them out. We found one at one of my local appliance stores. So off I go tomorrow (before meeting Evander) to buy one. Hopefully it can be delivered soon. Also to add to my life, there is the Evander event on Monday. More interviews this week and meetings. Plus Rob (my BBB) is going in for surgery and the hospital he is at is at the polar end of our universe. So it will be driving back and forth for 4 days. I really don’t mind. But if I am not here online, you know why. Maybe this week will be full of older posts and few lines of current life.
I went to Walmart today to do some shopping. I bought a few more bears. I saw the scale for coins they have out for Amanda. Picture is at the end.
Here is another Walmart story from today – “As I was checking out my groceries with 4 pink bears in my shopping cart, a couple in front of me asked me why I had so many. Well, let me tell you my story I said. So thats when I told them who I was. Like all people, they were surprised, listened and wanted to give me a hug. So we hugged and had a few tears. As Walmart is selling Amanda’s bracelets at the tills, this wonderful couple bought 4 bracelets. I just happened to have some in my pocket so I gave them 2 extra from me. They didn’t want my free ones. They ended up giving me the 4 they bought to put on the pink bears and having the cashier ring up the 2 that I have given them out of my pocket. I gave my extras from my pocket back to Walmart and took the 4 home to put on the bears. The kindness and generosity of people is so wonderful to see. And that is what we need, more kindness to fill our hearts and pockets.
I would write more but I am tired, cranky and not feeling great. Thank you Dennis for appliance shopping with me online. And I love what you did to your bike!!!
