A Little More on Dish Rag Tag

All I can say is WOW!! The person I sent the baton (box) to should have received it at her work this morning. That is what the tracking on the USPS told me.

But, did it arrive at her work this morning? Of course not!! She calls the post office and finds out that it was accidentally put into a bin headed for Pittsburgh and she is in New York!! She was so upset!! She had taken all of her knitting goodies to work with her, planning to get this accomplished over her lunch.

So she calls her local post office, and guess what? The box is sitting there!! Off she goes during her lunch time, picks up the box, and gets the entire thing finished and mailed out to the next person by the 5:45 p.m. mail pick-up!! Way to go!!!

We're having a picnic at my work tomorrow--a belated Labor Day celebration. Everybody signs up to bring something. I stopped at the store on my way home to pick up ingredients to make baked beans. I knew I had brown sugar at home.

Get home--start cooking the bacon and the onions. Take the brown sugar out, and it is hard as a rock!! So, into the microwave with this to soften it up a little. Back to the bacon and onions to stir them around a little. Open the cans of beans, dump them into the crock pot. Go to get the brown sugar out of the microwave........OUCH!!! The plastic bag that it was in got so hot that it started to melt, and a piece of it melted onto my thumb!! Oh, it really hurts!!

I'm glad that I hadn't planned on knitting this evening. I don't think I'd be able to with this blister that is running up the entire side of my thumb.

Hopefully, tomorrow I'll have some pics of our at work picnic!!

I was supposed to start training someone new today, but the poor girl went to Texas to see her first grandchild, and she is stranded there because of Ike! I'm just thankful that she and her family are fine.

K--that's all for a while!!

Don't have much time but wanted to say thanks. Thanks for your prayers. Darci is doing well. She was on the billibed for three days, but the jaundice is going away and we are done with the bed now.

Thank you also for the bookmarks. I love them! I've needed one for my Bible, so they are perfect. Thank you so much for making them.

Trying to get back into a routine and will hopefully be on the computer a bit more this week. First and foremost I've got to get the boys back into their school work though. It's taking me a bit longer to adjust to my "new sleep routine" than I had hoped. I guess it's only been a week though.

I have to go make dinner... but will come back soon and read all about how you've been doing.

Thanks again.

Ouch Beth, I am always burning myself too. Keep some ice on it.

That's funny about the DRT package. I wonder where my teams box is, maybe I better check it out.

Oh my goodness, that's awful. I hope your thumb is much better now. Good luck with DRT!
