Today we actually got out and accomplished two things that we have been meaning to do for QUITE some time.
First, we gathered up all the cans and bottles and returned them to the redemption center. There were a LOT of cans and bottles. I think I made well over 7 trips to the car. So many of them were full of dust and cat hair. But now that we got that done, we are DETERMINED to not let them get to that point again!! Best part…made $19!
Second, I FINALLY got some new scrubs!!!!! After about 2 hours of shopping, I walked out with 5 new bottoms and 5 new tops. Everything was a size large. I really, really like the two styles of pants I got — one brand is Koi which I’ve never been able to wear before (too fat!) and the other is Cherokee. Funny thing…all the pants I bought were petite and perfect length. The regular length were way too long. I don’t know what the really short people do for scrub bottoms…they must have to hem them?? Bottom colors — light grey, dark grey, navy, light blue, and this hard-to-describe medium blue. As far as the scrub tops, I got the same style/brand I’ve been wearing. I wanted to get something else so bad, but everything I try on just doesn’t fit me well. So I stuck with what I know. Top colors — white, navy, peach, lavender, dark grey. Total spent — about $195!
We got home about 3:30 pm and I immediately started working on the meal — “Chicken” Broccoli Alfredo. YUMMY.
Then after dinner chores and a walk (which we both really didn’t want to do but we managed to get ourselves out the door!).
Now I’m going to take a shower before we watch another movie.
A GOOD DAY!!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 110)…
~~much of our days are spent escaped into our imaginations…however, our spirit lives in the MOMENT
~~caught up in a matrix of resentments and desires, we sleepwalk through our days, imagining positive and negative outcomes for events that will never come to pass
~~be fully present in the moment…EXPERIENCE each moment
Things making me happy today: returning all the cans and bottles finally!!, NEW SCRUBS!!!, breakfast and reading at the table, showering before our movie
