Shopping for clothes yesterday went well. I got 3 shirts and 3 skirts at a store called Stage. I got everything off of the 70% off clearance rack and everything was an additional 50% off of the clearance price. Major score. Going to wash the clothes today after Elijah gets up. I need to do his laundry and the whites. I'd wait to do my laundry til Monday but I want to wear an outfit on Sunday to church and I like my clothes to be washed before I wear them. I don't like the store smell. I'm weird like that. We got Elijah a couple of shirts. I am thinking that one of the outfits is going to be my Easter outfit. Haven't decided which one. Two of the skirts I bought are long skirts so I have to hike them up because at 5' 2" it is hard to find long flowy skirts that are just the right length. I almost bought a medium shirt but I put it back for a shirt that I liked better. All of the shirts are larges. One of the skirts is a large and the other two are extra large. I still can't wait to open the boxes of clothes and see what fits. The next time I buy clothes will be when I lose another 30 pounds. I am crocheting myself an afghan. The flower hexagon afghan keeps coming apart at the seams so after I'm done with this afghan I'll be putting the other one aside rather than fix it. The one I am working on now is going to be so pretty. I am using up some yarn that I have in my bin. I am using white, purple, grey, zebra, red, and black as the main blanket and a color called menthe as the border. The menthe is a pale greenish color. It's so pretty. I wanted pistachio for the border because of the brightness but I couldn't find it at Hobby Lobby and ended up getting a color that was slightly off and I didn't like it so I exchanged it for the menthe color. I am working on the white and it seems like it is a never ending ball of white yarn. I've decided to break up the white with strips of purple since I don't have enough of this particular purple to do a big enough section like with the other colors. The white and the purple are so pretty. I cannot wait to start on the red. I am almost done with the white.
I woke up this morning and was laying in bed. I couldn't fall back asleep. I looked at my phone and it said 3:45. Great. So I laid there until 4:10 hoping I would fall back asleep but no. I didn't. So rather than lay there and toss and turn until 5 when my alarm went off I got up and made myself some coffee and now I am sitting at the dining room table on the computer. Since mom is going to work today I didn't feel like bringing my computer into my room only to bring it out later when I start typing out recipes. The goal for today is to type out most of the one book sitting on the table while Elijah is watching his shows. Monday I typed out the recipes in the one book. This book is bigger than the last one but the recipes are short like the last one. Whatever recipes I don't type out today I'll type out tomorrow. Then I'll get the other two cookbooks and sit and type them out on Friday while Elijah is watching his shows.
It's Wednesday and my plans are to go to the fitness center tonight after mom gets home from work. Mom said last night that she wants his "landfill" in the living room cleaned up and his bedroom cleaned up or I can't go to the fitness center. So I'm thinking that once the TV goes off at 1 Elijah and I will be cleaning up his stuff. We bought some cleaning supplies including carpet cleaner. It's a different kind of carpet cleaner and my best friend said it's good and she uses it. We haven't had carpet cleaner in a while. There's a few spots in the living room that I am hoping to get out of the carpet with the new stuff. We got Mr. Clean and toilet bowl cleaner as well. I am thinking that I am going to get my bathroom cleaned at some point today. I love when mom goes to work because then I could put some Mr. Clean and water on the stove for the day and make the apartment smell so good. I think that once she leaves it's going on the stove. It's supposed to be a little bit warmer today and partly cloudy. If that's the case Elijah and I will be gong on a walk. It's supposed to start warming up. I can't wait. I don't like cold weather.
