Day 7 of 'Tude

Friday, March 08, 2013

There seems to be something about making plans to go somewhere. Again I didn't want to get up to go with my daughter. I tossed the idea around over and over in my head. I hoped my daughter would change her mind or decide to go tomorrow. She didn't get up when she planned so I thought that maybe she would say that she didn't want to go so I wouldn't have to come up with an excuse not to go.

When she came into my room, she said that she was getting ready to go so I better get started. I asked her if she would rather wait until tomorrow since it was later than she wanted to go. She said no she wanted to go today.

I was surprised by the words that came out of my mouth next. I said "I am really looking forward to going to the hobby lobby!" What? Who said that? Did that really come out of my mouth? Lol

I got up and got ready and we headed out. We went to the hobby lobby and then grocery shopping. It was a nice day out. I even got some time in the sun (got my vitamin D).

The Hobby Lobby made me think about how I would like to be crafty. That store is full of great stuff. I have never been in a store like that. It had all kinds of stuff. I had to keep saying to myself... I am creative. I am crafty. I come up with great ideas for crafts.

Although I am really tired and my feet hurt, I am glad I got out of the house. Tomorrow will be a stay at home day. Victoria and I are going to work on a healthy menu and our exercise plan. I can exercise regularly. I can eat healthy food and like it. I can stick to my plan. I can be a good example for my kids and my granddaughter to be healthy.

It is the end of the first week and so far although I had a few tough moments, it has been a positive week.

Much love and positive changes!

    You and Victoria are doing great. Dad and I are skipping church tomorrow. J won't be there, not feeling well, Dad is having back and dizzy problems, and I am worn out with rummage sale. I bought so much stuff and got such great bargains. Example: I got 2 new pair of underpants for $.75. I also got a beautiful skirt (size 10) for $1. And much much more. I should do like some do for coupons, take a picture of all of it and the total amount spent. I'm taking a cake and ice cream to Merry's tomorrow for her birthday. I wish you could all be there.
    Love ya, Mom

    I love Hobby Lobby. One of my favorite stores. So glad there is one here now. I really missed it when we moved from Colorado.

    Way to go! I like Hobby Lobby too. There isn't one around me, but I go to A.C. Moore and Michael's and get into enough trouble there. It's a good thing I haven't figured out how to get to the JoAnn Fabrics near me or I'd be in real trouble, and I don't even sew! Just "crafty" stuff. It's fun. It's keeps the hands busy. If the hands are busy, you can't eat. Hard to knit and munch at the same time! Pick one creative thing you'd like to try, then go for it! I'm glad you had a good week!

    Nothing better than a good week! It doesn't have to be perfect! You just have to keep moving in the right direction.

    I love shopping in Hobby Lobby but it always makes me think I can do a project that I will never get around to. Glad you had such a positive week. emoticon

    It's so good to hear about you getting out and about and enjoying it. I love Hobby Lobby! I just recently went in one for the first time, wow! If you need craft ideas, which I doubt you do, trying searching for Crafts on Pinterest. If you don't know Pinterest, go check it out. The people on there have the coolest crafts ideas.

    Your daughter sounds lovely and caring. You are blessed to have her in your life, she's getting you out the door.

    Hope you get good exercise in today! I am off to the gym in a minute to run on the treadmill. We're forecast for over a foot of snow tonight!

    Oh, the dangerous labyrinths of hobby shops... I have to give my wallet to a friend before entering, and have him/her only give it back to me with a *very convincing* argument why I NEED (rather than want) an item. It's the only way I won't bankrupt myself.
    Enjoy next time too!

    I've edited this for you.....

    Sounds like a great week for you. I hope you get to do the craft as it would be something you'd enjoy.

    emoticon What a great way to get ready to close out the week! And it sounds like tomorrow is a built in great day because you and Vic sound like you will be doing some planning together. I'm super proud of you!
