I really should get a picture – but I got a new coat this afternoon! It was fun 🙂 I really needed a new coat and my dearest Mommy offered to get me a new one.  We were trying to be thrifty so our plan was to hit the Goodwill, Value Villiage, TJ Max, Ross, and as a last resort, the Evil Empire.  Guess what? We found me an awesome coat at the first stop – Goodwill!  And only $15 🙂 I was excited 🙂

Mom and I spent the whole afternoon together.  Running her errands, buying me a coat, going to the bank, going grocery shopping, it was a ton of fun!  I’m really tired though.  I’ve been breathing a lot better the last two days, but I’m still getting really tired, really easy.  That’s ok, I got to slowly build up my strength!

Mo spent the afternoon doing “slave labor” for my Dad.  Hard work (like shoveling gravel and stacking wood) but hey – it made us money!

 

Migraines and busyness… June 7, 2008

As a start to my “3 important things, 3 hours,” yesterday was a bust.  I had great plans!  I knew what I was going to work on and everything.  And then I had a migraine.  Lay me out in bed migraine.  Ugh.  Fortunately after lots of pain meds and sleep it did get better and my afternoon was much improved!  Unfortunately that meant I still didn’t work on my stuff because yesterday was shot day.  So I spent the afternoon in Yakima.  I had fun though 🙂

Not getting shots.  Shots are not fun.

No, I had fun listening to my mp3 player through the car stereo system, volume cranked, singing off-key at the top of my lungs!  I had fun shopping for bead stuff and other things I needed in general.  Yesterday was one of those shopping days where I actually found everything I was looking for. Believe me, for me, that’s rare. I am not one of those woman who automatically associates shopping with great joy.  I’m more inclined to pretend that I’m really excited about it, but deep down inside just want to cry in frustration because I know that that’s how I’m probably going to feel by the time it’s all said and done.  Yesterday was NOT one of those days 🙂

Personally I think the music helped 😛

The only one of my “3 Important Things” that I did any work on last night was the business stuff.  And, honestly, a lot of it was “honey fix it!”  Moses is a computer science geek and I was having major frustrations trying to get my new blog to look the way I wanted it to.  That’s right ladies and gentlemen, I now have two blogs!  From now on you’ll only hear casual references to my jewelry world in this blog because I have an entire blog devoted to that world.  Check it out at http://www.roseworksjewelry.wordpress.com  and if your sick of hearing about my jewelry business…simply breath a sigh of relief and don’t check it out 😛

Now, I’m going to go be a good girl and spend some time writing.  Today I am determined to meet my “3 Important Things, 3 Hours” goal!
