I am so bad at directions, that I put the address to the Salvation Army into my GPS, and then it led me to a school 3 blocks away. Hmmmmm, weird.
I joined about 20 other people and we unloaded about 300 boxes of toys and backpacks, and hats & gloves, etc. I ended up knowing one of the other volunteers so we worked together on unpacking the boxes for the 6-8 yr olds. We put 1/2 the table for boys & 1/2 for girls. We really packed the tables full and there were still about 30 unpacked boxes that we stashed under the tables.
I was surprised what was for the girls, mostly beads and art supplies, and Lots of dolls. They boys got cars, footballs, action figures, legos, etc.. I always liked the boy toys & played cars in the sandbox with my brother, but I also loved dolls & played school with my 2 sisters. We used to just run or bike up & down the block-again & again. I have a photo of myself, around age 6 with a huge knee but I'm having so much fun running. I didn't let my arthritis get in the way, I just enjoyed being a kid.
I just got invited over to my Dad & SMom Dorothy's for supper & we'll catch up on the Survivor finale. I waited until they got back from vacation so that we could watch it together. I can hardly wait to learn who won.
I just started the dishwasher because I couldn't remember if they were clean or not, fibro fog again. I'm going to volunteer another couple of hours again tomorrow-to hand out the gifts. Then laundry to do tomorrow, before I head off to Kansas (3 hrs away) for my Sister's on Friday morning.
