haven't been around lately..

I haven't had much time lately to spend on the internets. I've been so busy at work the last few weeks that I just wanted to spend as much time away from computers and phones as I could. this means a lot of time outside or working on personal projects. So, that's what I've done, pretty much. and it actually was pretty nice.

Now that the madness has pretty much died down, I can catch up!

We spent Easter with Fayth & Tom, and JB was there, as well as Juan David, and Aunt Frances & cousin Paige. It was a nice relaxing day. David & Paige & I are discussing plans for a DMB concert over the summer..if it all works out it will be a ton of fun. I am having concert withdrawals.

This past saturday I went thrifting/antiquing (after a really busy day at work), just to browse. It had been a while since I was on 'the hunt,' so it was just a nice afternoon to relax and browse around silly stores. One place on southside had a huge spring sale going on, and I actually found a divided pyrex dish with the lid, the town & county pattern..I love it. It's perfect for summer, too. The same store had a pair of shoes that I gasped out loud when I saw them..and they were only a couple bucks, 30% off! They were my size too! So of course I bought the shoes and the dish.

I am looking forward to wearing these shoes.

Stamp club is this wednesday, so I am also looking forward to that. I thought about making some cards today but I did a lot of chores instead. Trash, a little bit of laundry, vacuuming, litter box, dishes..all done! And it only took an hour for me to do all of that. Grocery shopping was done over the weekend..so that's done too.

Another thing I have been doing lately is bringing lunch every single day to work. Those SmartOnes meals are amazing..everything I have tried so far tastes pretty good..I am usually not a fan of boxed meals like that, but for lunches at work they are great. And, they are the perfect portions, and low calories..and only about $2 each. So..my goal is to spend $10 or less TOTAL a week on lunches. If I don't have anything made ahead of time for lunch, I will bring one of those SmartOnes meals. There is noooooooo excuse to buy lunch every single day. Do you know how easy it is to spend $10 in a day for lunch????? Not going to happen to me! I have a plan.

I have also noticed lately that 'Pride' by U2 comes on the radio every single time I am in the car driving for more than 3 miles. It is odd..it feels like my theme song or something.. I love the song, but it's so weird hearing it every single time like that while driving around..so weird that it feels weird not hearing it..which really doesn't happen now that I think about it..
