Thursday, I can talk on the phone and thoughts!
Yesterday was a fog day. I think I took a nap with the little ones and then I went to sleep during the news and didn't wake up until 9 p.m. So I will call it a nap day. I must have been really over tired as I slept well all night. I feel pretty darn good today. I am raring to get something done. Actually I have to get something done. Who am I kidding?
I have four bridesmaid dresses to steam and another that must be done today. I have a small tweak on a Wedding dress that should be picked up tomorrow. Also there is another pile. Oh the pile. What can I say? Between the pile and ironing it never ends.
It will be super hot again today, but will start to wave, hot, normal,hot,normal for the next two weeks. I think I can live with that. I just don't know if I can handle the tomatoes it will produce:)
I have really changed my mind set this year, on shopping and accruing. I know the real shift came when I went to visit my Husband's brother and his wife. They have an incredibly gorgeous home in Florida. It is large and full and beautifully decorated. I love my sister in law to death, but there was just to much stuff for me. Every inch was a picture of loveliness. I just could not handle that many belongings. Maybe being forced to deal with mom and her over accumulation of stuff also set me up. As for clothes shopping, because I love clothes, let me tell you. My sister in law had a huge walk in closet, and it was full to the ceiling with a maze of dressers . You could hardly move in that room. Also the other bedroom closets were full of her clothes.
She is very stylish and beautiful. There are more lotions and potions in her bed/bath than a drug store. She spends a lot of time looking beautiful. It takes her a while to get ready to go anywhere and she is never happy about how she looks. (well are any of us) But I realized that she really can only wear so many clothes. So why have them? Why have all that stuff if you just have to clean it? Why work that hard just to maintain it? Why work just to get more?
I am working to get out of debt and have less stuff. Do I love stuff? Sure I do, but not enough to have it control my life anymore. I just wish I had come to this realization about 20 years ago.
Have a great and productive day, staying positive while you are in the negative.
