LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
Well, we have a dumpster in our yard and some new light fixtures and fans. What a difference a new fan makes in the kitchen. Now I have to replace 42 handles and knobs. Those things are expensive but I've got some online accounts so I'll look there.
This morning hubby and I started cleaning out the garage in preparation for the new garage door. 30 min ago, I sent him down to the neighbors with a bag full of fabrics. Where is he? I finally gave up and now I'm blogging. Why do we keep all that stuff?
2 years ago I sold my office building and moved a 1400 square foot office into our home so I'm still finding some of that stuff. I have bags full of photos and newspaper clippings to go through. Hubby has a treasure box full of stuff in his dresser and I found a box from his mother that he needs to put in there and save. But where is he? He must be talking to the minister.
Last June, we moved my mother-in-law from a two bedroom apt to a 1 BR in a retirement home. I'm still finding boxes of her stuff that we are not supposed to give away. Why keep it if we don't need it but we don't dare part with her stuff. She'll ask for it and then it will be gone. Hubby has already been to Goodwill this morning with a load. I keep my sample books in the garage on shelves and I need to sort that out. That is a continual process but I had to take a break from being sweaty. And its going to be hot today!
The diet hasn't been watched this week. Not one bit. Last night we went to Logan's Roadhouse for the first time in months. The manager commented he hadn't seen us. We splurged on 3 course dinner for 2 for $19.99. We had fried mushrooms, yum, a tossed salad with oil and vinegar, a steak with loaded sweet potato, and strawberry cheesecake for dinner. Also I had a beer and a yeast roll. What a pig I was and you know what? I was so stuffed for the first time in a long time that I was uncomfortable for the rest of the evening. Now that I remember how that feels, I don't want to go there again. It used to be a regular thing. Now, I mostly stop when I'm full and don't eat anymore. But it was nice to splurge for once. The interesting thing? The cheesecake didn't taste all that good but I ate it anyway.
We'll be watching the FSU/Oklahoma football game this afternoon. The rest of the TV will be all about 9/11, that horrible day in our lives. I was at home getting ready for work when the first plane crashed into the tower and saw it happen. Then the rest of the horror unfolded as the day went on. No way did I ever think those towers would fall down like they did, like a stack of cards.
I'll be cleaning and finishing my quilt and going grocery shopping to keep from watching. Take care!
