Just another sloppy, unedited installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

This will be a short one because I don’t have much time but I want to post something because one of my 2017 goals is to be more consistent in posting at least weekly.

It was a busy week with celebrations for New Year’s and my birthday, the boy starting back to school, the girl starting to work in the family business and me organizing a event for a church group.

Since it was my birthday, I got several coupons and decided to do one of my least favorite activities – shopping. I wanted to shop for a pair of pants because my favorite pair have become too big and my other ones are still a bit too tight. I also wanted to get new bras. The ones I got last year ended up being too uncomfortable to wear all day. I thought I’d be able to deal with the underwires but I couldn’t.

First off was the Lands End shop in Sears – didn’t find any pants I liked but did end up with a flowered cardigan. I do wish I could find long sleeves that actually fit and didn’t need to be turned up.

Then it was off to Kohl’s for their intimates sale. I lucked out – I was standing in the middle of the lingerie section looking lost when Leeann came by and asked if I needed help. She turned out to be a bra fitter and made the experience so easy. She took my measurements, asked me what I preferred and brought me several styles to try on.  If it had been for the power failure I would have been in and out in less than half an hour. A far cry from the last time when I couldn’t find any wireless bras in my size and ended up trying on dozens of bras.

Now the only question is what to do with the old bras. My really old bras I tossed but I hate to toss the underwires I got last year. I hardly wore them – I would usually opt to wear the old ones and left them in the drawer. I just don’t know about donating them. On the one hand, there are women who would probably appreciate not needing to spend $40 or more on a bra. But on the other hand there just seems to be something a bit weird Not sure what I’m going to do.

Okay enough for now, need to get moving on some work. I’ll be back next week to update my goals for this year. Until then, enjoy your day wherever you are.

Here are the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

Had a lovely dinner at my in-laws. I did eat too much but I’m working on getting rid of it.

Have had a little bit of snow which is nice to look at. DS made a few snowballs and that just about cleared the yard!

Still need to cover two vegetable beds but most everything else is done.

Not really in the Christmas mood yet. I dread the shopping  – not sure what to do about it all. Did pick up one or two things but there is much more to get.

Still feeling unmotivated and lazy – off to try to find something to get me up and moving.

Here’s the lastest installment of the things that are running through my head…

I love the look of my irises in bloom – I have white, yellow and purple ones.

I love the smell of my peonies as I walk past my dining room table.

I can’t wait for the strawberries to get really red. They are starting to get pink and the temptation to pick one is really strong in my DS. I’m trying to get him to wait but it isn’t easy.

So glad we had rain last night – the garden really needed it.

We really had a nice time at the bike oval on Saturday. It was a gorgeous day and there weren’t too many other people there. The kids were able to run around, bike and play.

There was an article in today’s paper about an indoor bike facility coming to town. That would be interesting.

I’ve gotten behind in reconciliing my business/personal credit card. I’ve been paying it but I haven’t actually been dividing it up. I’ve just paid it with whichever account had enough money. Need to get it staightened out and than keep it straight.

Went to “Camp Blast” a free day to explore what camp is like with DS on Sunday. He signed up for an overnight camp – 3nights and 4 days. We’ll see how it goes. He has never been away from home on his own before. He is also signed up for a week-long day camp through Cub Scouts. Plus he wants to go spend some time with my dad.

DD’s  confirmation is coming up. She wants a new dress and does need one but I hate the thought of shopping. She ordered one but didn’t like the way it looked. Now I need to return it and take her out for something else.

I guess that’s enough for now. Hope your day is going great.
