I did finally run to the store leaving instructions for my daughter to answer the phone if it rang and give directions to the house if it was my friend. I've been to the store and back, washed the dishes and have the beans underway....and still no word. Oh well, I am getting a lot done around here. Besides what's been mentioned already I've done three loads of laundry, picked up around the house, run the vacuum, showered, and brushed out the dog.
