This and That

It's a rainy Sunday night. I've had a busy day so I thought I'd share a smidge with you.

I had a super bad headache since Friday and when I woke up this morning, it was finally gone. I tried almost everything to get rid of it. I didn't even go to church last night because I knew that the beat of the drums and the bass would make my head hurt worse! Thank goodness for extra strength Tylenol and a nice comfy bed to snuggle into to sleep.

I took time this morning to go shopping. I bought clear storage containers for my walk in closet. I seriously need 9-1-1 Housekeeper or an Organizing Coach to help me with this "room." I have teaching stuff in there, Christmas, rubberstamping, all seasons of clothing, shoes, kids' momentos, pictures, etc. WHAT A MESS!! Plus the two dressers and David's clothes when I allow him the room! :)

The gym and I became friends again. I did three miles on the treadmill. My foot doesn't hurt at all so I think I might be okay for the half marathon. I loved being back in the gym with my new earphones, listening to great Christian music. Definitely uplifting!

I worked in the closet for a bit. It was a little overwhelming but I also got some items ready to take to Disneyworld. I am determined to have NO turtlenecks or heavy sweaters with me. If it snows while I'm there, I'm going to cry!!!!!

Then I zipped over to the mall to look for a new suitcase. Check this out....a Liz suitcase, orginally $200 and I got it for $19!! WOOOHOOO~

Robin met me at the mall and we had Starbucks at Barnes and Noble. It was nice to get caught up with her. We called our other two Whitworth girlfriends and left voice mail for them. I miss being able to spend time with each of them. So, I try to call at least once a week, email, or stop by their homes for random things.

Funniest thing tonight is that I stopped in at Victoria Secret's to browse...always looking for cute essentials. Anyways, I tried some lotion on my hands, not realizing that it has SPARKLES in it. I really like the lotion... it smells great!!!! I might just have to get some anyways and remember it's for at home only. ::::smiling:::::

Now that I'm home, I'm enjoying a glass of wine as I type this. It's a definite "this and that" type of blog posting.

Happy Sunday night, everyone! And in honor of Paul Harvey, "stay tuned for the rest of the story!"

Glad to hear that you finally got rid of the headache. Wish I lived closer, I LOVE organizing! Drives my family nuts. I'm always looking for a good "messy closet".

Anyway, sounds like you had a nice day today. Enjoy your week!

Those are some cute puppies, now! So sorry about your headache...they can be debilitating.

I do NOT love organizing, but I love organized....tricky. Let me know how the Rubbermaid works. I have some stuff (like the entire house) that I need to get pulled together.

Good on you for the gym! Such a good way to spend an hour! Missed you!

AND...sparkly lotion? Wonderful! I think you should wear a little on your cheeks when you're feeling a bit blue. Maggie occasionally "glitters up" and it rubs off when I give her kisses. Like fairy dust. Never fails to make me smile!

There's the beagle boys! I want to snuggle them, they are so cute!
I love organizing stuff too, but I am on the wrong coast to help you lol.

Your beagles are SOOOOO cute! I bet they have to check out anything new you bring into the house!

My little beagle is the same way.

Take Care,

I'm glad you are feeling better. I don't suffer from headaches but the few I've had were awful.
