I have an awesome closet. It is HUGE and it is full of clothes. I have blouses in just about every color. There are so many shoes, I have two shoe racks and I still do not have a place for every pair. My husband only uses a small fraction of the space so I am a lucky girl!
As you know, I have been trying to be frugal lately. I rarely go shopping at the mall these days but, I wanted to go shopping this weekend. My mom had just recovered from surgery so I thought it would be great to invite her to go with me. I anticipated having a leisurely lunch followed by some shopping. The day looked bright! (more…)
I don’t think I am alone in this but right now I am trying to be good and save money. I am bringing my lunch every day to work. I am not running to the mall everyday and my trips to Wal-Mart are less frequent too. All these things are good and I am happy I am doing them. My savings are increasing and I think I will survive Christmas this year. The problem is, spending less is kinda boring and it just makes me think about all the things I want that I shouldn’t or can’t buy. The following is a list of things I have thought about SIMPLY because I can’t have them right now! (more…)
Fair Warning – This is a hard one.
My fantastic, perfect, and delightful boy, Jesse, has ADD. I have known this for a while but the reality of it hit me full force recently. We weren’t having huge issues but, we were accustomed to a lot of drama and anxiety in our house recently, I have had to take a step back and take a long look at my family. It reminds me of the first time I had a sleep-over at a friend’s house. I thought everyone’s family was pretty much like mine UNTIL, I spent some time at another person’s house. That is when I then really saw how others families lived. Well, today I didn’t visit another person’s house but I did look at my house with different eyes. (more…)
As I go through my day I realize that many people have a different idea of what is required and what is optional when it comes to everyday life. What I think is a given seems to be debatable to others. Not to be bossy, but I think the following things are not optional. Rather, in my world, they are required!
- Saying, “Thank you.” when someone holds the door open for you.
- Wearing a bra if your boobs sag below your belly button. I am all for natural but boobs at the belly button is too natural. They must be contained and controlled for your safety and the safety of others
- Blowing and/or picking your nose in private. A public place is NOT where you do those things. Yuck!! (more…)
I have had a tough time lately. As a family, we have been extremely busy and a lot of unexpected stuff has happened. Having said that, I know there is so much good going on at the same time. I have found that if I just seek out the good, it very quickly overshadows the bad. Sooo… I feel good. Here are some of the reasons I feel this way! (more…)
