Wow–it has been awhile since I posted! Not a whole lot going on this week–the weather has been extremely gross–freezing rain, sleet, rain, more freezing rain. So I have chosen to stay inside as much as possible. I picked Chris up at the Minneapolis airport yesterday and we got home just as it was getting pretty nasty outside so we settled in for the night with some yummy tortilla soup and watched CNN and Hope for Haiti before someone, and I won’t say who that someone was, fell asleep on the couch and I had to encourage him to move to the bed. And now we are up early…..on a Saturday….not quite sure why but our normal routine is broken.
Gonna leave in a bit to go help with Angel Food Distribution. If any of you out there have not heard of it it is an awesome food program that ANYONE can participate in. Several people here in Mason City have worked hard to get Mason City as a host site which means the food comes here for distribution and folks can order and pick up locally instead of going to Clear Lake or some other close community. The thing that I like best about it is that it is open to anyone. So many times there are gaps in programs and people that can benefit are not able to participate because they somehow do not meet the requirements. All that you have to do with this program is order, pay, and show up to pick up your order. I know I have blogged about it before but it is worth repeating—if you want to save some money check and see if there is one near you. I always order online which makes it easier for me but you can order in person at the sites and each host site will have information on how to do that.
So it is off we go in a bit to help with the distribution….gonna be slip sliding our way there I think. I will let Chris drive……
