I left at 2:30 and it was 97 degrees when I left. I believe we hit 100 degrees. May is not even over yet and we've hit the triple digits.
I felt very unaccomplished. I got my laundry done, but that was about it.
Monday: I didn't go out of the house. I just didn't see the need to go out in the heat. I put together a few swaps to mail out.
I made this card for a co-worker:
A sticker tag:
Tuesday: I had to go to the Dollar Tree to pick up some essentials and Walmart for a few things. I may have pushed myself a bit, going out in 80+ heat without water, oh well
I don't think I have these stickers, but I might. I had to pick up the mug because it has owls, plus it's huge. I love picking up the frog toothbrush holders at Dollar Tree, they work great for wand and pen holders, too. The list pad is for the clipboard above. I've seen people hauling these pens and I could not pass them up. I did pass up the unicorn keychains and a few other things.
Next I stopped by Target, I didn't find anything to buy. that might be a first for me. I needed some pajamas for the trip, the lowest they went was $12, and that was a clearance pair. I knew Walmart had separates for $5 each, I almost bought some cards just to buy something, but I put them back.
Last up was Walmart.
I probably picked up too much food, but most of it (except the Reese's) was under $2. The Reese's was not worth the money, sadly. I picked up the keys for a future tag.
This pair was on clearance for $9 and then rang up at $7, so much better deal than Target. I need to replace some of my bralettes that I've had for years, this version is only about $5 at Walmart, I find them extremely comfortable. I actually prefer bralettes over bras. I noticed my trimmer blade wasn't working very good yesterday and price checked between Walmart and Hobby Lobby, Walmart was $4, Hobby Lobby was $5.99, I keep finding more of my basic supplies cheaper at Walmart, which is fine, every time I go to Hobby Lobby I buy a bunch of stuff that I'm slow at using. I'm also trying to pick up a pack of tape every time I got to Walmart, I can't run out that way.
I was supposed to pick up some more bus tickets and milk on my way home, but I was so exhausted that I skipped those. There's always Wednesday.
I found some happy mail waiting for me.
Wednesday: Went to work, post office and grocery store, nothing special there. Finished two movies, started a book.
Thursday: I woke up pissed at the world. The last dream I was having, I was at a buffet restaurant and nothing was going my way, first they ran out of food and when they got more, they didn't have any clean plates, I was with my family and they wanted to leave and I just wanted more food.
Wednesday while I was at work, one of my coworkers invited another one out to lunch, and then I see pictures of three of them out doing a painting class today, and I saw pictures of others having a birthday get together on facebook a few weeks ago. I want that. I want that many good friendships at my work that we can go out and do things, I wish I knew how to get it.
I got a few more swaps ready to mail.
Igrab religious notecards:
50 loose stickers:
Youtube produced Thunderstruck by AC/DC to me and it made my heart sing, it really touched me. I think I need more of AC/DC in my life.
Friday: I had off because I worked Saturday, I had to leave late for sales, as one I wanted to go to, didn't start until 10.
Saw this cool trunk at the third sale:
Fourth sale, there was a bunch of stamps and I only picked them up for my new group on facebook, I'm hoping to trade them out. There were two bundles, she wanted $7.50 for all of them, I didn't want to spend that much, so she gave me the larger one for $5, it had 72 packets of stamps in it.
The last two sales didn't have anything interesting. One was just one I saw a sign for and as I was walking in to the garage, the guy was sitting there smoking a cigarette, nope. The last one, the lady was talking to a couple when I came in and when they left, she totally ignored me and got on her phone. I think that's rude. You want me to buy something, pay attention to me.
After taking a long afternoon break, my friend and I headed downtown to the local artwalk. I saw this beautiful Mustang:
Saturday: I opened at the library, it was fine. I had a couple pieces of happy mail when I came home
50 Loose stickers:
I finished the day tackling some swaps I needed to get done.
