Woooooooo deeeeee hooooooooo hoooooooo hoooooooo!  Today is the last day of classes!  (Wait 'til you see how happy I am when I've finished exams, turned in my grades, and the semester is officially over!)

So, what are your plans for today?  I have my two classes, and after that Dan and I are headed to a great big Goodwill outlet store -- did you know such a thing existed?  It's up in PA, so it's going to be a haul to get there.  I really hope it's worth the drive.

Maybe tonight we'll watch a Christmas DVD.  Trying to keep that joy a'comin!

Have a fantastic Friday!

Hi Buddies.   Karen: last day of the year, yeah.  And any road trips with your man is a fun time in my book.   No, I didn't know goodwill had an outlet.

Last night there was 10 of us at Ruby Tuesday, glad I had Christmas cards in my purse to hand out as about 3 other people did that and the one gave us all an ornament as she was celebrating even being alive as she was in the hospital 10 times this past year. . Has chronic edema issues with her legs as well as other issues.    Went down to that town early and hit the grocery, Lowes, Staples and the pet store--- remind me of how silly it is to buy toys that will be destroyed in minutes but I just had to for my little furgirl.

Today I pick my friend up at 11am and driving not quite an hour south of us to Olive Garden and do some shopping down there.  It was her birthday this past wednesday so lunch out will be her present.

Raining here in Ohio and should be raining through the next couple days so glad we got a second shorter walk in yesterday.

Ruthie: glad you got a walk in on thursday, you go girl.

love to all,  Josie
