Monday, out with the old, in with....

     My mind is still a jumble of things I want or feel I need to get done. I have to keep telling myself ti does not matter, it will get done in its time.  I am not running like a spotted hair.  I am a work in progress.

     We had a wonderful short trip down and back for Hubs father's 90th birthday.  We had dinner at a sister-in-laws house.  Hub's and I bought ice cream cakes as that is what he wanted.  We also went to See's chocolates and had a special box made up of 90 chocolates.  What do you get a man that has everything?  He needs to gain weight and so does mom so this was the perfect gift.  See's was so glad to do it for us.

     Saturday morning we went shopping with D#1 and her mother-in-law.  Hubs came along to play with baby.  Baby is two but he is still my baby.  So cute  He and grandpa played while we shopped.  I bought D#1's Christmas while we were there.  I finally broke down and bought 4 sweaters and a pair of jeans.  I have really not bought any  winter clothes except for what has been given to me by my sister.  When I went to pack I saw how washed out and shoddy my things were and thought you can buy a few things for yourself.

     One thing I had planned on doing is replacing my nude heels.  The old pair I had was ripping inside and irritated my feet.  They were 7 years old and well loved.  So I found a pair at Dillards with a great cushioned sole and a wide toe bed.  The are made by Naturalizer.


Old ratty inside shoes.





















New nice nude heels.

    1. When potatoes and onions are harvested they are taken in large trucks to the plants. Many fall off onto the soft soil and you can glean them for nothing.

  3. Are onions like zucchini where people just throw them out the moving car window to get rid of them?

  4. Hi Kim, wow your father in law is 90. God bless him and what a perfect, perfect gift!... I love the new heels. I seriously need to get myself a pair exactly like those. Mine are so old and ratty. Maybe I'll go to Dillards here and see if I can find the ones you got because I really like them and the heel doesn't look so high that I'd trip myself and break my neck.. LOL...I saved money by not going anywhere and only spending what we needed on food we needed. We are so deep in debt it's not even funny and honestly, there is no way out.. Im so overwhelmed and lost with it all :(
