WHEW!!! It feels good to be awake & alive! I slept most of yesterday. hacking, wheezing, coughing, stuffed up & nauseous. But I am doing better today. I am not 100% but better. I need energy. Everything seems to be going in slow motion for me…but that’s progress. 🙂
I am working on paperwork. It requires less energy. I am happy to report that due to my budgeting this month….I was able to pay off one bill 2 months early. 🙂 It’s not a revolving account (somewhat) so that is really nice. I also got to pay a big payment to a credit card. Which is also really nice. I know this is just the first month…but that makes me really happy to see that kind of progress already. I am hoping to pay off a few more bills next month….:)
I think the bountiful baskets also helps me feel like I get fresh new groceries every week….and we get to try new things. So that helps with the shopping urge. I am getting way better at mindless shopping. I think my biggest shopping bill besides groceries was fabric. I have been good at shopping my stash. I have so many projects in my stash that will keep me busy for a long time. I think I am struggling with backings. I have a few backings in my stash……but especially for the scrap quilts and what not I am using my yardage and I have a hard time deciding what I want to use up. I need to quit hoarding. It will be freeing once I get to the point of just throwing caution to the wind and using it all!
Here is another thing that I have been addicted to…..TV. What shows are you all watching?
I am waiting to watch DA. Carla & I are having a marathon when my DVD arrives. I am patiently waiting. I even deleted the recordings because I didn’t want to be tempted. That hurt I have to say.
But I have so many shows recording that I have to watch them on 2 different Tv’s because there are conflicts.
I have been watching all the of 7th Heaven series. Did you know there are 245 episodes of that? That was on during the time (11 years?? and I missed that boat??) I was having babies and what not. I didn’t have Tv for several years. So I watch that every day.
I am also watching all of the Touched by an Angel series. I can barely make it through most episodes without bawling.
Hallmark now has another series I am recording: When Calls the Heart.
most of my Tv time is spent between OWN, Uplifting Network, Hallmark. Seriously.
But I also watch a few shows on regular TV. The middle, Modern Family, Suburgatory, Biggest Loser, Big Bang Theory, Dr. Phil, Mike & Molly, Parenthood, Scandal, Nashville & dateline. I think I will never be able to leave home to work at an office job. Otherwise I would never be able to catch up on all of my shows. This is def a hazard of working from home…I just have to say. Thank God -> I love my job.
So what are you all watching? Anything I am not?
I also have to say I finally finished those pesky CHEVRONS on the mystery quilt! YAY! I am halfway through the HST’s. Then I just have to complete the last clue and I can start assembling the quilt top. Those chevrons took me FOREVER and a day! But I know that it will all be worth it in the end. Even if it is just that I get to count a whole bunch of yardage in my De-stash. 🙂
So those are all the updates for now. Hope you have a great end to the week! wooohooo!
