One of my facebook groups, we send each other gifts every month. I was a little bummed because my December partner flaked on me. I put together what I thought was a really good package and then I never got anything in return, to top it off, she told the group hostesses that I was being rude to her and then left the group. I know I could still get in touch with her through messenger, but I decided to just let it go, that's just part of swapping. Most of the time people come through and honor their commitments, but sometimes they don't and since we can't go to their house and yell at them, we just accept it. For the January swap, the hostess said she'd pair me up with someone really good. (I've had a couple packages get lost in the mail, and a couple get to me late, and I've angeled a few times, I don't know if I'll stay in the group.)
I did get a great partner for January, here's what she sent me:
But, there's more:
And still, more:
I sent her a book, some double stick tape, chocolate, pens, stickers, sticky notes, highlighters and some paperclips.
I went to Walmart the last day of January and picked up a few things:
My hair is getting really long:
My co-worker was cleaning out and found some vintage buttons for me. These are my favorite from the bag she gave me:
The weather has been weird this week. Monday, it was in the 50's, Tuesday it dropped down to the 30's and was foggy, Wednesday there was a couple inches of snow on the ground, Thursday it was in the teens and felt much colder, and the wind just kept getting worse throughout the day, today it's supposed to be back in the 50's.
I decided to get out and enjoy the weather a bit today, so I went shopping. I was going to go to BAM, Walmart, Target, Dollar Tree, JoAnn's, and Hobby Lobby, but that didn't happen. I started out towards BAM because I've been wanting a day-by-day calendar but no one really has a great selection. BAM is about 1.5 miles from my house, and I don't have a car, so I got out my music.
I got in there and they said a lot of things were 50% off, but I went straight to the calendars. I saw this cool one:
I was very proud of myself for only picking up the calendars, but I did pick up two.
Next up was Walmart, it's probably about a half mile from BAM, maybe not even that much.
I put back the bralette, underwear and sleep wear set that I kinda needed, and spent about $30 on all this:
Next was Target:
Next up was Dollar Tree:
After spending $30 at Dollar Tree, I decided I didn't need to spend more at Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's especially since a friend and I are going thrift store shopping for clothes next week. So, I headed over to Burger King, picked up lunch and went home.
I've been really bummed lately, I think I just don't like February. First, Valentine's Day, not just because I'm single. When my ex broke up with me, it became real on Valentine's Day. He hadn't talked to me in awhile and I just kept hoping he would, but I knew when he didn't get me anything or even call/text me on Valentine's Day, we were over. Second, one of my good friends died last year in early February. And I guess I'm just ready for spring.
What's up with everyone else?
