Last time I checked in, seems to be the 4th. Since then, I've basically been working. Tomorrow will be my first day off since then. I went shopping a couple days I got done early, but it's mostly been work.
On the January 9th I caught the sunrise on my way to work:
I tried to listen to music while taking a bath Friday night, but my speaker wouldn't work (found out later it was an issue with the outlet, and not my speaker), so I picked up this guy Saturday at work:
That same day I tried to spend money at CVS. They had sent me a 30% off my total purchase coupon, so I wandered over there to see if they had anything good, I did find this:
This was Sunday, it was pretty dead, so I got to go home about an hour and a half early, so I went shopping. Mostly because I wanted to go shopping on Monday, but there was an ice storm in the forecast.
First stop, Dollar Tree
That stone was very poorly painted, I should have looked at it better, but I keep seeing people haul them and I just wanted one. I painted the 'stone' part purple and repainted the red parts, then I went over it with mod podge, I didn't like the rough feeling in my hands.
I spent about $30.
Next up was Target.
Monday, we basically had rain, freezing rain, and sleet all day. Everything was covered in a thin sheet of ice, not fun. It was still a bit icy on my way into work on Tuesday. Wednesday, the high was almost in the 50's and it mostly melted it all off. We've been having overcast days and fog warnings since then. There was fog when I got off work tonight at 6pm, it's like we're in a scary movie or something.
The other day, I found these cute Golden books on the free shelf at the library.
Thursday, the 19th I got done early again, so I stopped at JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby on my way home.
I usually don't go to JoAnn's, since my store rearranged, their paper crafting section sucks. I do go in sometimes to look at their holiday stuff, though. This time I noticed they had a $1.50 and $3.00 section:
Found this cute little heart on the sidewalk on my way to Hobby Lobby
Here's what I got at Hobby Lobby:
I got home and realized I should have picked up double stick tape, so I'll be going back tomorrow, while the Paper Studio stuff is still 50% off to pick up some floral tape for my flip book.
Today, I had a few swaps to mail, saw this stamp at the post office
I'm also heading over to Walmart and Dollar Tree tomorrow. After that I'm done shopping for Valentine's Day.
I was supposed to work at one of my jobs tomorrow, but I really needed a day off before Sunday, I could tell in how stressed/tired I was, so I put in to get the day off. I'm spending the weekend on me and things I need to do. I hope to be recharged by Monday when I have to go back to work.
