Things...and Stuff....and Things

Thursday, September 12, 2013

My beau and his family will be getting together at his mom and step dad's house tomorrow to spend a bit of time and go through some of his mom's books.
His step dad is ordering keepsake pendants (I think they are pendants) for the kids for his mom's ashes. I have a small one with my dads ashes in it that my sister gave me and I love it. I don't wear it all the time, but I put it on if I am having an especially hard day.

My beau's sister is leaving to go back home Saturday and we will be leaving Sunday evening.
I am looking forward to getting home, but not looking forward to another bus ride.

Has anyone ordered NatureBox before? I finally gave in and ordered it...and I am not home to get it! My sister said it came last weekend and is sitting in my room...I am wondering what's in it! I got the middle size order and am hoping that it is worth the 30.00 a month.

I don't know if I have been able to maintain my weight with everything going on...I noticed that my capri's were still a little loose in the tummy last night but when I tried on my jeans this morning, I wasn't able to button them up. They were *just* big enough for me before, so I either put a couple of pounds back on or am still a bit puffy from the extra salt and stuff in the fast food and restaurant foods over the last couple of weeks.
I should be able to get a handle on it rather quickly once we get back home.

I am also looking forward to getting a job soon. I have several places that contacted me since we got down here....of course! It was like way back when I smoked (and you could smoke in a restaurant), as soon as you lit up, they brought out your order, lol!
While travelling is expensive, there just isn't anything I can really do about it, I am hoping to get a down payment together for a car before Halloween. I hope so anyways because after that it will be getting pretty chilly for walking or biking any distance in Chicagoland!
It seems like every time we get money in the bank....
I actually had enough for a down payment in the bank this morning, but that is soon to be decimated by the purchase of our return bus trip.
Oh well. C'est La Vie!

Take care and love yourself!

    You have been through a lot these past weeks. Being out of routine is challenging. I will pray that your trip home goes smoothly. Peace, June emoticon

    I looked up naturebox, and hope you enjoy it.
    I have to find healthy
    snacks online when I can afford some.
    Some months, no extra for good things.
    In our tiny town not much variety.
    Something coming every month would certainly be fun and
    would not have to spend the time shopping!

    May you get a job you like, soon.

    May you get that down payment for a car
    and safe travels!

    The pendant idea I will have to file away
    for the future, sounds like a good idea.

    It doesn't seem you gained much at all
    eating out, since most everything fits yet!
    You'll be home and on track soon!
    May the Lord bless you both.

    Well you have had a traumatic week or two so don't worry about a few pounds. When you get back home you can regroup and concentrate. I like the idea of a pendant for the ashes, never even thought of the idea. I am not sure I know what a nature box is but a friend used to order something similar. It was nuts, seeds and dried fruit I wonder if it is the same thing. I thought it was overpriced for what it was, but she really liked it.

    Well safe journey home and when you get back you'll be going for job interviews and before you know it you'll be back at work and able to get that car. God bless
