Does anyone know how to cancel a bid on ebay.
I put in a $5 bid for a Mickey Mouse Outfit and now it seems I'm only six minutes away
from owning Obama's entire Cabinet.

Yesterday I told on myself about eating one of those big Apple Crumb Muffins from Costco. I ate it with butter.
It cost me a butt load of calories and fat!
By noon, I had already gone over 1000, and had the rest of the day to try to eat and stay in my allotment.
Guess what! I DID IT!!!!!
For dinner I had steamed broccoli and baked squash, with one TBSP butter. I drank water with my meal.
I cringed when it was time to enter the dinner food and see my total.
I came in at 1450!!! I had 100 calories yet before I went over.
WOW. Veggies are SOOOOOOOO good for us, and even better, TO us!!

"Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country." --Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788

Today I am not on top of my game.
I have a headache, my body aches, and I am sneezing every thirty seconds. I have made the decision to stay in my jammies.
Speaking of jammies. I have a new pair of jammies. They are fleece jammies.
Have you heard of them?
I never had, but I did hear about the fleece sheets from my friends at quilt club. I truly doubted if I could sleep under fleece sheets, and DH says he would DEFINITELY NOT!!!
But what does HE know anyway??
Anyway, all I could picture was the kind of fleece we use for dog bedding. You know, the thick, kind of bumpy stuff. I pictured my fleece sheets like that, including the collected dog hair that gets imbedded in them.
So I by-passed the idea of sheets. Then I went to Costco.
They had a pile of jammies that were so soft and comfortable feeling in my hand. I lifted a pair up and brushed my cheek with them. I tucked my hand inside the folds, and it was so warm, soft and light.
Kind of like a soft loving hug from Gramma.
They were at a very reasonable price......$16.99.........so I bought one pair.
Put them on when I got home, and I knew I was in heaven!
I sent DH back to Costco for two more pair.
I think I might even get some for the GDs and Bossy daughter for Christmas.
These things are wonderful. You simply gotta try them!
Then I was in Costco again the other day, and there, right by the entrance, they had fleece sheets. AND at a very good price, too.
I was sorely tempted, but DH was with me, so I just made a mental note that I am going to go back and buy some, put them on the bed, and see if he even notices.
He probably won't. During the winter we sleep with flannel sheets anyway, so he will probably just think these are flannel.
He doesn't deal with types of fabric............only types of tools, cars, oils for cars....that kind of stuff.
I am flu-ish today, as I said. And I am in my fleece, loving jammies.
Life could be worse. Oh yes. A LOT worse!
Now I am going downstairs and get some orange juice, aspirin, and grab a quilt book to read.
I have learned from Spark People that it is truly okay to take care of myself, and that I don't have to be a super woman all the time.
Today, I choose to listen.

"Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." --John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
