I woke to a pile of several packages on my front porch.  Dragged them all inside.  After my shower with an ex-large coffee from Dunkin Donuts, I opened and cut up all the boxes.  Took them out to recyclable garbage container.  Next, the sets of Lenox ornaments from the recent TSV were opened, unwrapped each one (which consisted of removing two plastic bags, tissue) and removed sticker from each one, and put them back in the plastic bags.  That was 28 ornaments.  My fingers are sore!!  I put them all together in a plastic container because I want to use them all over my Xmas tree.  They are bigger than I expected so I hope they look OK.  I planned on using just those (maybe some of those tiny ball ornaments I have).  I wanted to use some ribbon I saw on one of Valeries trees.  I think it was H221132 set of four 9' decorative tinsel ribbon, but that's a lot of ribbon.  I wish it came in sets of two then I could get two different colors.

 

Anyway, my Martha Stewart sweater arrived.  I'd been eyeing it for months.  I finally bit the bullet.  A372025 Animal Jacquard Mock-Neck Sweater.  My first purchase of her clothing.  It's very soft and nice.  

 

New shoe purchase from SpringStep.  Sephora purchase.  A Patricia Nash purse from HSN.

 

Let's see, oh, and SunJo tire kit so when winter comes I don't have to run to local gas station in the freezing cold to put air in my tires (which happens sooooo many times during the winter.)

 

I think that's it.  I'm tired and hungry now.  I need a nap first.  

 

And best thing, my husband is busy making something smell.  Some kind of sauce or salsa that includes sour cherries and several kinds of hot peppers.  It's smelling up the entire house but at least it kept him away from me and out of my hair.  I didn't have to listen to any of his nasty comments about my purchases.

That's a first. Complaining about having to open all your packages while your husband cooks for you. I wish I had it so rough.

I wasn't complaining.  And my husband was not cooking for me.  He makes it for himself and to take to his friends house.  I DO NOT eat anything that is hot.  Just smelling it makes me nauseous.  I would be in so much pain.  PS: he's never cooked anything for me in the 30 years we've been married.

@Big Joanie I'd be happy to share once he gives it to me.  I asked him for it and he said he would.  As soon as he does, I will post it.
