…that birthdays are wonderful things. Especially, when like mine, it lasts and lasts.
Stopped by my PO Box today to find a lovely card from my parents and a beautiful card from my wonderful Q. Then stopped by to pick up package from my sis.
Inside was the usual assortment of fun items, including magnets, Texas style lollies (shaped like hat, boot, the state, etc.). Two items, though, made me laugh like a loon for at least a half hour.

DUDES, I got a MOUNTIE for my birthday!!!!!! And a fantastic bumper sticker that will immediately go on Simply Red. I’m still giggling!!
Ran errands all morning, sorting out the property tax sticker for the car, mailed packages (Wendy, your book is in today’s mail!) and sorted out more stuff for shredding. We authors (as do most folks) collect WAY the heck too much paper. I had print outs of my old stuff, other people’s old stuff, fan fiction stories, Gutenberg items (this was before I got the Kindle). I’ve now got 15 medium size bags o’shredding. A local firm, BudgetShred is coming on Thursday to pick up. VERY reasonable, too.
Next step in decluttering: finish listing the last set of books on eBay/half.com. I’m giving it until the end of October. If stuff doesn’t sell by then, I’m donating everything to the library.
Hope everyone is having a great back-to-business day after the long Labor/Labour Day weekend!
