North...and...South...

Seems the day started out...all backwards....Breakfast was scrambled...unintentionally.... I was getting bookwork done....could not process...and realised...I hadn't had any coffee, yet... so...was grinding the beans... and watching my breakfast catch of fire.... got that taken care of...realised...I don't know when I need to meet at Mom's for her appointment...no one had called, to confirm...for Thursday...so...I called the Nursing Home... they hadn't made the appointment.... or scheduled the bus.... hmmm...I turn, to get a cup of coffee....and see, clear, hot water brewing....and the grounds....sitting on the counter.... I told the nurse, from Mom's.... "no worries".... see what she can do.... my day wasn't going any better than hers....She called back....and had everything together.... I was going to hit the shower...then...the phone rang...it was Pegadoo...she and Mike, were on their way....  So... I got my hair and teeth brushed....scraped the dried food particles, off of my old sweat shirt...and ran out the door.... Peg doesn't care...what I look like{or smell like....}...and Mike...well... he'll get over it!
It was Great Seeing Them... Peg was given some high powered antibiotics, in the hospital, over the weekend... and has a bad case of thrush...and canker sores, in her mouth.... as she was showing me, her new way of speaking...in her...exaggerated style...she had me rolling....Oh...My.... Only Peg.... She is...Priceless.... Carol Burnett has Nothing...on Peg......
I had to pick up some things I had left bids on, at Duwa's Auction....before 5... as I was thinking about it...something clicked... I had also ...maybe... left a bid, last week, in northern Iowa...at Hoges... did I? did I?.... I called Marvel...and Yes... I had... she wasn't worried...she knew I'd be around.... Oh My Gosh! I was worried...I had Forgotten!!! And... I had to beat feet! To get to Southern Iowa...then...Bounce...up North.... No Shower....I jumped in Jethro....and Flew South..{I got Smalls, in Wellman...}...Then...came home, switched vehicles....and headed north...., to Coggon...another auction was going on, at Hoges......I ran through...said 'hello's'...and didn't get too close to anyone...{whew}.... Loaded up....then...headed home...it was 8, before I got done....a long day....I spent nearly as much on fuel...as I did on merchandise....oh my...
Tomorrow...I'll be with Mom, most of the day...
Then...I'll be getting the shop pulled together...and be Open... Both...Saturday...and Sunday...

This is a Christmas Gift...from Peg... {I so wish she wouldn't get me anything!}It was at the gift shop, at the Cemetery, where her Mother is....she said.."It's a HEART.... I had to get it for you...." {sigh...} that Peg....I do...Love her So....
 I hope to get my Christmas Cards Done...Friday.... oh...my...where has the time gone???
Have a Great Thursday....
