I'm afraid if I go to the Humane Society to drop off old towels, of which I have plenty, I'll come home with a dog! And I really want another one, but not sure the timing is quite right.
Got home a couple hours ago from my trip to Omaha with my DD. We shopped, and shopped and ate. I had such good intentions to stay on plan, but I admit that I didn't. I tried the low carb cheesecake with strawberries at The Cheesecake Factory, but looked up online and found that it contains somewhere around 37 carbs (give or take a couple, I can't remember exactly). Ouch! Today was even worse for food, the only good thing is that I didn't eat a lot. But we both had success in finding some new clothes. A lot of mine are just too big since I've lost weight, and it's time update the wardrobe with some new clothes. I even bought a dress, almost unheard of for me to wear a dress! They might pass out at work from the shock. And Trader Joe's had 16 oz. of almond flour for $3.99. I paid over $11 for the last package I bought here for the same size! So I bought 2 and threw them in the freezer.

Rather than the vet, try your local animal shelter/humane society.
What great timing Woubbie - I was just looking at towels in my closets the other day wondering what to do with them. You'd think I still had a family of 6 around here with as many towels I have.
Tuesday I'm going to call our local Vets and see if they would like some - and if they don't want them, I'll get in touch with the mission (a place where homeless can stay) and see if they'd be interested. I'll bet someone will - a lot of them are good towels, but with one person here, I do not need so many!! Thanks much for the suggestion!!
EWEFLUFFY IS NOW KICK-SS
TODAY IS THE TOMORROW YOU WORRIED ABOUT YESTERDAY. GET ON WITH IT!!
BEFORE YOU CAN START A NEW CHAPTER - YOU HAVE TO FIRST TURN THE PAGE!
Got a new cut and color yesterday -- I am not sure I did the right thing, I went with a shoulder length blunt cut, and put some darker streaks in with he blonde -- it ended up kind of a dark honey color. My hubby says he likes it, I am thinking maybe it as a bit to drastic a change. I guess if my mom flips out tomorrow I will know I went too far.
Today I took a long walk, did a little shopping, then relaxed with my kindle.

Woubbie - good to know about the vets taking old towels and such.
Leslie - take it easy while your body is healing itself.
Hubby and I are repainting the interior house. Trying to update colors. This may turn out to be a major undertaking. Hope I have the energy. Would like it to be done before the holidays are upon us.
Have a great Labor Day everyone!

Back from church. It's funny seeing Kyle being the center of attention now!
Our choir director is moving on in a couple of weeks, and I have no idea what we're going to do at that point. I mean, on a typical Sunday we're usually more of a quartet or quintet than an actual choir anyway, so..... Eh. God will provide, maybe?
I'll do some more reorganizing later (after I play some WoW). My downstairs hall closet is one of the last "holdouts" in this entire house as far as de-cluttering goes. It's like one giant junk drawer. Most of the stuff isn't mine, which is why it's still here in the first place!. My DH, who rarely goes anywhere that he needs to dress up for, has about 20 jackets of various kinds. I have 3. (He has more shoes than me too, I'm pretty sure...) Today's the day to get ruthless and prune the collection. Good time of year to be making coat donations to Goodwill, I might add.
Hey, for any of you that de-cluttered this month, did you know that your local vet would LOVE to get your cast-off towels, sheets, and blankets? Holes and stains are no problem, either.
Have a great Sunday, all!
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?
When James wakes up, we are going to six flags, yuck. But, the kids love it.
A quiet day for me, too.
Just another quiet day of recovery for me! I'm going to walk the dogs shortly and then I have a short To Do list so I don't feel like I was a blob all day. I really feel pretty good for having an infected tooth extracted, but I'm not going to push it. Maybe the day will be half Blob and half Production!
