Christmas and New Years have passed and once again we start a new year…Did you make any resolutions? One of mine is pretty simple, but important to me. I want to be able to take a shower before 8:00am. every morning, sounds simple doesn’t it. So many times, I’ll get out of bed and start doing things around the house or I’ll get on the computer and check my email first thing in the morning…… Before you know it the clock says 11:00am. and there I am still in my jammies. TF is always saying, “Hun, get your shower.” I’ll say, "OK, just let me throw these towels in the washer first"…..I have tried to get my shower early and I have come to the conclusion that I need to take my shower at night instead. How can something so simple, be so hard? Oh Well.
Bonnie leaves for school in four days. She will be going to Texas A & M University to the Engineering school. She will be living with a young lady, that is working on her Masters degree, in a house she just bought a couple of months ago. I went up with her last Wednesday to help her take some of her “stuff” up there and got to see the house and meet her room mate. I think the girls are going to get along great and have some good times as roomies. My SIL, Jennifer’s husband , will be helping her take her bed and large items up on Monday. He has a truck and a trailer and he has volunteered to help her with that. She is a bit anxious about the move, but I know she will do fine.
Our church meeting, this year, has moved from 2:30pm. to 8:30am. I am not that much of a morning person and this should be interesting…. I am still working with our group to get their food storage. I think, more that ever, it is important to be prepared for what could happen with this economy. I brought home another 25lb. bag of white beans to put up after reading Diane’s recipes for white bean soup. The other hat that I wear is for emergency preparedness….Our ham radio group is busy getting ready for next hurricane season. We have several classes planned and we have been trying to get radios in the hands of our new members in the group. We found a great price on some single band radios that are awesome…
Last night, TF and I were watching “27 Dresses” on TV. It is such a cute movie. The one sister was trying to tell the other one about the guy she was dating; He happened to be her boss and hopeful boyfriend. She was jealous of their relationship and she was trying to tell her sister some of the things that were not good about him….”He sometimes doesn’t wear socks” she says….The other sister says, “That isn’t a deal breaker.” It got me to thinking, what would be a deal breaker? So here’s the question: What would have been a deal breaker in the relationship with your spouse?
OK, something frugal: Have you been shopping the after Christmas sales? Right now, Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and many other stores have marked their Christmas items down 75% off. I always buy my Christmas wrapping paper, cards and any other items I will need for next year at this time. I really needed more cookie tins and paper plates for next year so it was on the top of my list….Thankfully I found them and a few more things that I needed and wanted. I usually buy my stocking stuffers at this time and save a bundle on them…..Give it a try, you will be glad that you did…….Also, check out the January white sales and the mark downs on fall clothing.
Do you believe in second chances? Boy this guy sure did get one.
Have a great week everyone!
