Yikes! I have to admit I had a TERRIBLE day regarding food yesterday. 😦 A scone for breakfast, 3 clementines for lunch, leftover chili over whole wheat pasta (yummy, though…) then popcorn while watching Glee. Not really that bad but then I got into something that wasn’t even mine…
See the lovely heart-shaped bowl of Valentine colored M&M’s?? Well they’ve been plaguing me since Monday and creeping into my mouth. 😦
I need structure. I’ve got to sit down and make a plan for how I’m going to get this all under control and get myself back on track. That will be my project for later in the day.
Proud to say I did what I’d planned yesterday. My aim was to work in the basement and get a collection of things that I don’t want anymore that I’m going to donate to Ele’s church rummage sale. I got a good pile together and found some cool things in the process, some necessary paperwork and just cool.
Ele and I have been working on gathering things to send to our cousins Kim and Lisa in California. Their Dad was our Mom’s brother, Joe. We’ve found a lot of photos of Uncle Joe when he was in the Air Force in Korea. In my basement, I also found some letters that their Mom had sent to Gram when they were stationed somewhere. Yesterday I found a letter that Kim had sent to Gram and Pop when they first moved to California in 1964. It’s so cute, written in little kid handwriting. I just love it. I also found a big photo of Uncle Joe, Aunt Bette and Kim (looking about 3 years old.) I think Kim and Lisa need these things because there’s a good chance that they’ve never seen some of the Air Force photos. I’m excited about sharing all of these treasures with them.
So here is what I accomplished yesterday…
That’s the back seat of my car, filled with donations! 🙂 There’s still plenty more to be donated, but I have to go through it first. I have 2 weeks until the first sale, so I’m planning on a few more trips to the church before that. This makes me feel good.
I’ll be spending a little time at the church today helping Ele. At least I won’t be eating M&M’s!!! Structure…Structure!! 🙂
