YAYYYYYY! Time to have fun & leave this gross year behind. I’m so exited to shop for my person- I’ve got a feeling I might get carried away .

After being semi-quarantined for almost 2 week, I’m so ready to start some shopping so this is perfect timing.  Already have some ideas! 
 
*Yeah, semi-quarantined because I was exposed to a positive and symptomatic for COVID co-worker two weeks ago tomorrow.  Thanks to hospital administration There is not enough warm bodies to go around for all of us that worked that day to be quarantined so we had to work. So on my weekends I’ve stayed in the house except for one big grocery pickup from Walmart.




God love you HanShotFirst! Please take care! God bless your healing ministry to your patients!

Glad you are feeling okay. I had a good friend that was a nurse for 30+ years and she passed from Covid, a week later her mother passed from Covid as well. They lived together, but she caught it from one of the patients she was caring for. Thank you for your hard work, that goes overlooked so much, yall are truly hero's.


Thank you!

I did. Luckily, the administrator was very understanding and allowed me to enter my info a little late. :)

I think I have most of my stuff for my person. Just waiting a little while longer to ship, just in case I happen to find something else to throw in.

Same here.  I’m quite sure I’ll find more things because I’ve still got a few more stores to get to.  :)

I got to town this morning and picked up my ornaments for the OE, and half of my SS gift.  Now just waiting on what I ordered to come in so I can get it mailed off.  I'll try to get the ornaments in the mail this week.

Hmmmm.....you just gave away a big clue.....you are buying for a female! That means you are not buying for any of the fellas.

That narrows it down a whole lot! I am a female.....are you by chance, ....buying for ME?!?!?! HMMMMmmmm?!?!

Whatcha get me?!? ::picking up package and shaking it:: I don't hear much rattling....

Darn! This one isn't rattling either! A 35 pound tub of cat litter should rattle ......

I’m loving living vicariously through you guys! With my health and the pandemic, going out shopping and to the post office really isn’t in my best interests so I bowed out for this year but I’ll definitely be doing SS again next year. Really looking forward to seeing what everyone gets
