Whoa. Where did last week go?? I didn’t even have time to post a picture on Wednesday…and that’s the easiest day to blog. Yeesh! Oh well. I’m here now, doing at least one weekend post…maybe two if you’re lucky 🙂
However today I don’t have a clear path for writing….I have so many random thoughts circling through my head, so I figured I’d just share those! Cool? Cool!
Crafting….man, oh man. Have you been on Pinterest yet? If not, you gotta check it out. That place is what inspires me to be creative, but I have yet to try out any of the creativity that has inspired me. Fail. That’s going to change today. I am going to go and get supplies for 1 or maybe 2 crafty things I’ve been interested in trying. The thing about “crafting” is that it costs money….some people have heaps of random supplies on hand, but I don’t…so in order to do any sort of craft or project I have to go out and buy it. Fortunately for me I found a 50% off coupon at Michaels. Here’s to doing something craft today!
Penicillin…thank goodness that penicillin was available to me when I had strep. I was celebrating this week when I finished the entire prescription because often times I forget to fully complete a prescription….for example, I don’t think I ever finished my typhoid pills from missions trips. Oh well. Anyway…it was a pain to have to remember to take the pills 2 times a day, but I did it and I am feel much better. Actually I finished on Tuesday and then my throat started hurting on Wednesday and I was very worried the meds didn’t work fully….but my throat is feeling much better this weekend, so I’m thinking it was just sore from over-use.
Gas….gas for my car. Gas prices went down SO, SO LOW here…I’m taking $3.20-something last week….but then within an over night time frame it was back up to $3.50-ish. What?? That’s so silly. Anyway….$3.50 is still much cheaper than it has been recently, but I’d love for it to go back down a few more cents.
Costco….right before Greg and I got married we got a Sam’s membership because we got our wedding cupcakes from there (CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP!!!!)…anyway, we used Sam’s club mostly for things like meat, vitamins, granola bars, juice, etc. Things that we knew wouldn’t spoil easily, because they sell things in packages big enough to feed a village…and we are definitely not a village. Anyway, when we moved into our house, Sam’s club was no longer the closest option for us. We are now closer to a Costco, so we recently quit Sam’s and joined Costco. And it’s so weird how attached or comfortable I got with Sam’s Club because now, going to Costco, is rather hard for me. They don’t sell the exact same products and while things are laid our similarly, it’s not the same…it’s really throwing me off. If I am struggling with changing bulk grocery stores, imagine how I deal with other change. HA!
Zumba…Greg and I recently joined LA Fitness and I am soooo excited about it. I am so much more motivated to exercise when I have to pay for it. We got a deal through the gym and with my insurance paying for part of my membership (if I got 12 times per month) it is a whopping $10 each month…it’s fantastic. But not only am I motivated to go if I have to pay…but also so motivated when someone is leading exercise. LA Fitness has so many classes and I just tried my first class last week with my friend, Laurie. We went to Zumba and it was super fun! I was telling Greg and as long as there was ONE person worse than me, I’d be fine. Because as long as there is one person worse than you, you won’t be the person everyone is giggling at. Come on, you know it’s true. Anyway…thankfully there was one more more uncoordinated then me. Whew. Anyway….to give you a visual of this silly little thing called Zumba, check out this youtube. And see if you can spy the uncoordinated girl in this class. 🙂
Spaghetti-o’s….Dora the Explorer Spaghetti-o’s to be exact. The only thing I can say about this is that they are not quite as wonderful when you are 28 as they are when you are 8. Not even close. I bought a can just because I was intrigued by what it would taste like these days….plus Greg was out of town this week, which means I am “off the hook” for meals and just do random things. I was so pumped to eat them, and so quickly disappointed in how nasty they were. Haha. Oh well. It was worth the try!
And there you have it folks. Random things that were floating around in my head on this fine, sunny, and warm Saturday! Enjoy your weekend!
