The “Vons Debacle” not withstanding, I had a pretty errand-filled day and while I didn’t get new shocks on my truck (not for lack of trying; my mechanic was short personnel today and told me to come back Monday) and left the long-overdue vacuuming to tomorrow (when Susan’s at the salon and the cat’s are galavanting around on their outdoors day), I was able to pick up Susan’s birthday present (and hide it)… which I hadn’t been expecting to do until next week.

The list of stuff is as follows:

  • Three-mile walk with dog (some pictures from it are here)
  • Grocery shopping
  • Truck to mechanic for shocks and an oil/filter change*
  • Post office
  • Bank
  • Barbershop
  • Wash dishes
  • Take out trash
  • Sweep/rake front and back yards
  • Laundry
  • Vacuum/dust*
