I had great plans to get this typed and ready to go earlier today.  I also had plans to call and wish my Dad a happy birthday… screwed those up too.  So Happy Birthday Dad… not that you read this.

I made it out to CVS and Rite Aid this week.  No grocery shopping for us but it was so great to get going again with drugstore deals!  I took a family member and schooled her in the art of CVSing.  I don’t know that she fully wanted to learn, but by the end she was proud of her accomplishments.
