I didn't start out that way. After my labs were drawn I went to go swimming at the rec center therapy pool. The center was closed until 3. I had already had lunch at a local Mexican restaurant there (well, that part wasn't too bad since I took at least half home). But while looking around a shopping area near the rec center to see what was in there I found a frozen yogurt place. Fat free, but still I ended up with too much after being used to seeing places skimp on the dishes of it. Then after getting some supplies for the photo printer, I wandered over to Target. That is where I really had my problems.
I never had any kids. Never had a husband. So why do I fall for those cute little baby clothes? At least this time I had someone to waste my money on since my friend's family has "adopted" me as one of theirs, which makes me an auntie to two baby girls. So each of them will have a new little "onesy". Of course, Bre's cousin can't be forgotten about, so she has a new dress (2 1/2 months difference between them). Then while I was talking to my friend she said something about the shower coming up for the African family at church and I actually saw something that was a little brighter in color than the usual pastels, so I got that for the shower. Didn't need to go into that, since I am already working on a blanket for them, but it is in pastels since I couldn't find a brighter yarn soft enough for a newborn baby. Oh, was I bad.
I did, however, finally get to go to the pool and spent about an hour in it. I didn't get much done in the way of swimming because I wore out so fast, but got a little swimming in. And got rid of the soreness in my arm from doing yardwork on Fridy and Saturday.

I made a bit of a change for my weekend. I have been so addicted to TV programs that the TV is on all the time. Friday, before going to the Zumba class I turned the TV off and I haven't turned it back on yet. Tonight I will watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition, but I think that is all. Yesterday I read a book and I took expired prescriptions to the "drug dump," then got a tuner for my autoharp and went looking for a Zumba DVD again (none found, so will have to order on-line).
I'd work in the yard today, but it is freezing out and starting to snow. So I will work on some stuff inside. From my "Today's Inspiration" newsletter I got one that I thought I would like to share. It sounds like a wonderful balanced life.
To that, I add, Thank God for each day of your life.

"Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life — learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some."
