I'm on a roll

Look! I've typed something here three days in a row.

I might just become a blogger, yet!

I have tomorrow off! I'm going to a conference and I get to stay in a very nice hotel. I may even take my swim suit. :) Well, I take that back. I just had my hair colored. Don't want to wreck that!

I have a new eating philosophy. I will eat it or not, but I'm not going to anguish over every food choice and feel guilty about the not so great choices. I've decided to be healthy and exercise and choose well and just live... without weird food thoughts. If I stay 20 pounds over weight, then so be it. But I have a feeling this just might the cure I've been waiting for.

I'm going to attempt NaNoWriMo. We'll see how that goes.

I've just looked down to see that I am wearing 100% thrifted, garage saled or hand-me-down clothing. Except for my tights and undies, which probably cost three times as much as my actual outfit.

Here's the run down...

Crocheted Cardigan - $1.00
Skirt - $1.29 - It's a long skirt from the 80's that I chopped off and hemmed.
Black Gap long sleeve T - Free from a friend
Cute, sort of man shoes with a heel - (for lack of a better description) $3.99

Target Tights $7.99

Is it weird that my leg wear costs more than my whole outfit? Maybe I should start one of those what I'm wearing blogs. I'm totally addicted to those! If you go here, here, here and here (and this one is just fabulous!) you will see what I look at almost everyday! I have more, but this is just a little taste.

Tonight, I have a date with hubby which will include yet another trip to the Goodwill (I need jeans), dinner out - I'm thinking it's a clam chowder type of day, and we will conclude with seeing a free show. Dress rehearsals are always free and I totally invite myself to everyone I can get to. Nothing like making the actors feel nervous when another actor crashes their final dress rehearsal! But I am so encouraging and grateful for the free show that I think it evens it all out!

Boy, I am chatty today!

Dream Job...

Could this be it?

Pretty amazing, no?

I don't really miss it...

but I miss my friends.

my raspberry colored kitchen.

my job at the library.

my job at the coffee shop.

Sometimes I miss the prairie, but I mostly prefer here.

What's happening right now

My husband yelling, "stupid, stupid, stupid" in my ear. He is watching football.

My MIL yelling, "that is just dumb". She's watching football.

My son saying, "You should put ads on your blog and make some money."

I changed my boring template to another canned boring template. Maybe one day I'll learn how to spruce this place up.

My day is lovely. I have watched my daughter sing in the choir, had lunch 'out', knitted a little, read facebook, and found out the sorting hat sorted me into hufflepuff. (I took it again and was a Gryffindor, but kept the first one).

Then, I have rehearsal for Willie Wonka, and we do our last show for Drop Dead. I will miss it.

This week, I look forward to using my new exercise tape, in which I will build a Brazilian butt. I'll let you know how that turns out.

Would you like a before and after picture? I think not. :)
