This morning Sister Fanning prepared the menu and grocery list for the week. She is taking it easier than usual because of the withdrawal from the Cymbalta.
We went grocery shopping. We had a lot of baking supplies to get. We also have two parties this coming week that we have to take a side dish to. We also stopped at the cleaners.
We put the groceries away when we got home. We are using the guest room as a pantry lately because of the baking we are doing.
We went to deliver the seven loaves of bread tonight to the base. We went to see Marissa first. She looks through the peep hole in the door. When she sees it is us, she won’t answer the door. Her husband is still on deployment but we have been unable to give her any support. She is also on Sister Fanning’s visiting teaching list. Sister Fanning usually sends a message to her in the mail. Her next-door neighbors were sitting outside, so we gave them the card and bread and asked them to get them to Marissa. They said they would.
We made four more stops where no one was home, or no one answered the door. We delivered some bread and a Christmas card to Coral and her family, Conrad and Hannah and family, Abraham and Susie, and a less active couple. We also delivered bread and a card to a brand new family that we found a couple of weeks ago.
We stopped to deliver some bread to April. We found out that her husband is being released early from deployment because of their baby’s heart surgery. They picked twenty sailors from each squadron to send home a week early. They have been gone since the end of September. They picked sailors who had new babies while they were deployed and those who had other reasons to get home sooner.
We got home about 8:00.
