When I was full-time RVing and opened my South Dakota mailing address, Terri sent me a supply of calling cards as well as some return address labels. I've been wanting to get some that aren't so plain, so after years of avoiding Instaprint - you know the advertising, the cards are either free or cost $10 - I looked at their website.
I wanted a scene from nature and actually hoped I could find one of an open road stretching out ahead, but no luck. I didn't really want to design my own (really I'm just not capable of designing anything) so I was left with their selection, which isn't bad. I finally chose this impressionistic, water-color-type tree. I blotted out my phone number, but everything else is the way it looks.
For 250 cards and 50 return address labels the cost came to just under $30. I guess it's worth it, and now if I meet any fellow bloggers/blog readers on the road I can offer them my calling card, and hopefully they have one they can offer me. I have a nice supply of beautiful cards I've been given along the way, and always wished I had gone for broke with a photo of my 5th wheel and truck on a card, but it's just as well I didn't.
I'm looking all over for the little card holder I had but can't find it anywhere. Since I rarely throw out things like that, it must be somewhere in this chaos. I am thinking about cleaning up and rearranging my office/IMac/camping gear storage room, maybe even this afternoon, and I just might find it there. At least maybe I will be able to access all parts of the room.
Costco was first on the list this morning to get some prescriptions that are now filled in 3 month supply. Much easier than having to always be running in for refills, and I don't want to have to keep transferring the Rx while I'm traveling. I bought myself some new underwear while I was there - you know what your mother always told you - always wear clean underwear when you go out. I decided I'd better pay attention to Mama just in case I need one of those emergency room apps when I'm away from home. Oh wait, my jitterbug phone doesn't use apps (and if it does and someone knows that, please don't tell me!). And for the record, I bought bikini type garments, just for the fun of it and imagining the look on the faces of the ER personnel!
I had chicken for my dinner last night and thought I would have problems with acid reflux during the night. I had some of the chicken on a sandwich for lunch today, so I'll see if it's just chicken I can no longer tolerate or just a fluke. Chicken doesn't taste as good to me any more, although I still enjoy a hamburger now and then. I'll stick to mostly fish, but worry about my diet while traveling.
I think I will travel only about 275 miles of interstate, and that's out of 4500 miles (one way). I may decide to alter the route slightly but it won't make that much difference in traveling interstates. I'm excited about seeing so much of hometown American (and possibly Canada) this trip.
I will be going to a BBQ at Jeannie's tomorrow so I will get to see the Flat Stanleys and whatever the girls have decided to name the female dolls. I gave them each a lot of blank outlines that I printed out and asked them to color. It should be interesting to see what they come up with. Two other granddaughters and a grandson will be there as well, so maybe I should go armed with additional Stanleys!
I'm also taking some little things I picked up at the Back to School sales. They have those ruled spiral bound notebooks for only $.17, so you can imagine I bought a bunch. I'm like a kid in a candy store at the back to school sales! Then to avoid fights among sisters I have printed out their names on my labeling machine and affixed them to the notebooks! I probably missed my calling to be an elementary school teacher, but it's a good thing because I don't have enough patience.
I'd better quit now and let you go read some other blogs with more to say than I can come up with.
