Emily, Calzones, Winter Coats

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Emily ended up being ok! $220 dollars later and she had some kind of an infection that was treatable! So happy because Mauri was so heart broken. I felt bad about the cost after having this cat like 5 months lol Mauri said "She was worth every penny!". I will say it again, if there's angel's Mauri is one.

Yesterday I made a big pot of creamy potato soup and calzones. Soup was good, calzones were ehhh dense. I came home from water aerobics last night starving to death and ate way too much soup before the calzones were even baked. Weight is not as pretty this morning as yesterday morning. I am trading some cabbage soup with a friend and her soup is way less calories!

I applied for a few jobs yesterday. I have Thursday off to apply for some more. My schedule for next week shows that I am traveling 2.5 hours again....ughhh. I am ok with this job, no dire need to get out now. I am ok rolling with the punches for a bit. It got me jump started on a lot of things. But I really don't like a job where I have to work thru the winter and worry about rolling my car on black ice driving 1-2.5 hours 1 way a day. I am such a worry wort. Maybe I can just work in the fall =P when the weather is nice.

Thanks to my mall walking, I have been walking thru Sears every week and watching their winter coats go on deep deep discount. My current coat came from Goodwill 2 yrs ago it's a columbia but it like sheds down feathers. Anything u put in the pockets comes out with feather on it lol So I had a hunch yesterday to go see what the discount at Sears was now. They were all 25 bucks! So I got a semi light winter coat that was 100 marked down to 25. Then I got a pretty heavy winter coat that was 160 down to 25. I never get nice department store clothes. I am pretty excited!

    I am so glad to hear that Emily is okay too!!!!!! It sounds like Mauri and Emily were meant to be together.

    I would not like a job driving that far either. Especially in the weather we have been having. I have had some long drives on bad roads and they were frightening!!!

    I love sales. I wish we still had a Sears here. I used to buy a lot of things there.

    I went to Goodwill yesterday and bought 4 glasses and 2 pair of shorts for summer.

    Wow, great prices on the coats!

    And yeah, long commutes suck - such a waste of time!

    Keep on keeping on.... a person has to decide if a long daily commute is worth it... my daughter commutes one hour each way daily for her teaching job.... she loves her job, but the commute is already getting old.... this is year two.... she does make wise use of her time by listening to books on CD...but the extra time away from her family is tough! Good luck finding something closer to home!

    My LLBean coat sheds feathers too! But I love it, it's so warm.

    You are doing fabulous getting to the mall to walk. I have been seriously depressed this winter. I made it to the gym this morning for the first time in about 2 weeks. C'mon spring!!!

    I can't believe that I commuted 1 hour to work and 1 hour home 5 days a week for almost 10 years! It's time you can't get back! Look at the bright side, it could be a permanent job with that commute, lol! Glad you're getting back into your photography! I love your pics!
