Migraine is gone - yay!!!! Today was laundry day and I am also trying to catch up on all the things I did not get accomplished over the weekend, including the forums here. Missed all of you!!! I will be in and out for the next few hours.

Be MERRY!!!!
busy life, glad your migraine is gone, those suck!

Don't know yet what time BIL is bringing the new (well, to us) furniture. A lot of fuss over replacing some old things with a few new ones. We don't rearrange things often.
It is good to shake things up a bit, Merry! Enjoy your new furniture!!! I hope you post pictures of your cozy corner and the bookcase - I love bookcases (full, empty, in boxes - so much potential! )

It is also our churches 97th anniversary so we will have lots of additional guests for this. Lunch afterwards too!
My Dad's church is the same way. Happy Anniversary to your church!

I could eaisly get it excanged at the boarder, but that was not the point. They would have Canadian shoppers there regularly. I would think they would want to to keep that business rather than drive it away by this kind of policy.
