Mom and Gram always used to say if you talk about something too much you’ll jinx it (?!?!?!?) Not quite sure how it works, but anyway…I’m feeling better today! That’s all I have to say other than that I have my fingers crossed.
This post will still have some residual randomness so please don’t be frightened away.
The house is a MESS!!! Well it has been for quite some time, but you know the old saying about how it gets worse before it gets better?! Well, it’s true. Ralph has been working really hard at going through boxes and stuff. But of course in order to do that…the resulting extra Mess. I’m not complaining. I need to start making my own Mess to get together some things for the yard sale. I hate doing them, but I really need to. So that’s the story there.
Monday morning had a little treat involved…
I had a one day only coupon for a small iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. Regardless of how I felt, I couldn’t pass it up. It made me happy and also feel a little better at the time. Those are my new jeans! I haven’t mentioned them. I have a hard time finding jeans I like. I hate low-rise jeans and waist-high jeans are so hard to find anymore. At K-Mart, I found a happy solution. They’re not “quite” waist-high, but they’re very comfortable. They were on sale for $16.99 a few weeks ago so I splurged and bought 2 pairs. Last week we went back and they were still on sale! Bought another pair because I decided they’re Not a splurge, they’re very practical and they’ll last me for years! I should mark the date and see just how long they last…
In my efforts to keep both Ralph and Me on track with our eating (he’s done a great job and on his own has lost about 15 pounds…I’m so proud of him!) I needed to replenish his favorite salad dressing.
Had to make a special trip to Shoprite because I tried 2 other places and couldn’t find it. Well it was worth the trip. It was on sale for $1.40 OFF the regular price! Of course I got 2! In fact, I’m thinking I should go back and buy 2 more to have a reserve. He’ll be eating a Lot of salads this summer and I know he’ll use it up!
So Monday was a pretty good day. I got some reading done also…still working on this…
I’m enjoying it, but it’s going slowly. Maybe it’s just me who’s going slowly. Whatever…we’re moving along.
Gotta sit down today and formulate our summer travel plans. Cross country travel can take a lot of hashing out (arguing…No!!) That needs to happen today.
Hoping for a good day with no icky tummy…but I don’t want to jinx myself!
