Feeling better...finally!!

Well, I'm finally feeling better. Kevin 'made' me go to the Dr. yesterday and I have a sinus infection that needed antibiotics. So it's a round of Zithromax. I probably should have gone last week when one sickness rolled into another but I was being a bit stubborn. ;) Anyway, I'm feeling better and hopefully this will be the last bought of sickness for this winter. Because, you know, it's still winter. At least until Thursday!!

We are going to be going to Atlanta tomorrow to finally spend our Christmas gift cards. Yep, that's right, Christmas!! It has been one thing after another on why we've not spent them yet. The whole month of January was filled up with one sickie after another. Then Kevin spent most of Feb into this month working on a big, huge house he's been painting. And I had work. But I am so excited about being able to go to Archivers, Michaels, World Market, Sam's, and, of course, the Mall of Georgia. It's a great, 2-story mall with everything in it. We may even make it into Hobby Lobby and Home Depot. Plus we have so many places to choose to eat at because we have gift cards to Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Lobster, and Olive Garden. Mmmmm!! The only problem with living in a small town is you don't have any of these things readily available. Can you tell how excited I am?!?! LOL!!

I have all next week off from work. It's the school's spring break so I won't need to feed any of the kids since they won't be there!! :D I could use the rest so I'm glad. It's a bummer that I won't have any money coming in but being able to sleep in will be wonderful!!

I had my first taste of Corned beef and cabbage today for lunch. I am surprised that I had never had it before being from New England but, no, I've never eaten it. It was surprisingly good!! ;) And I even had all the fixin's with it. Carrots and potatoes. Very good.

Well, I guess that's it for now. :)
I will fill you all in on our day in the 'big city' tomorrow.
Until then....HUGS.....

A bit down in the dumps. :(

Thanks for the comments to my last post. :) Makes my day to see that people are reading my blog. Ann, I will be heading over to Scrapbook Takeout to 'learn' how to blog. :) Thanks so much for directing me there. I know it will be a lot of help.

And Sherri, the Chinese Auction was a lot of fun. The way it works is there are a ton of prizes and each prize has a cup beside it and you buy tickets (20 tickets for $5). Each 20 tickets has it's own number on them and you put your numbered ticket in the cup. They draw a ticket from the ones in the cup and if your number is called you win that prize. I didn't win a thing!! :( But Hannah won a gift certificate to her favorite Japanese Restaurant (she was thrilled!!) and some hair care products from a local salon. We've already enjoyed the lunch out with the gift certificate. :) Mmmmm! It was delicious.

I'm a little down tonight because I was just getting over a cold and all and then yesterday afternoon I started coughing a little and my throat was all 'phlegmy'. Augh!! I just hope I'm not coming down with anything....again!! I pray that it's just allergies. A lot of the trees and flowers are budding and blooming so I'm hoping that's all it is. I don't really feel bad...just tired. I ended up working 4 days this week and that hasn't helped. I guess I just need a good night's sleep.

So how did everyone fair from the time change? I was exhausted for 3 days!! I do not like it getting dark so much later so early in the year. And I really feel for the kids that have to get on the bus in the dark!! It doesn't get light out here until 7:45 a.m. I hope most of you did alright. :)

I've started working on my March ATCs. I'm in a neat ATC swap with a bunch of very talented ladies. There is 20 of us all together. Most of them come in the mail so it's so much fun getting such good mail throughout the month. :)

The 'Thin Within' book is very good so far. I'm learing a lot about my body and getting closer in my walk with God. I'm on day 3 and even though you're suppose to read the book in 30 days, every chapter a day, it's almost impossible because there's so much to absorb it's hard to take a whole chapter in in one day. But I'm really enjoying it and I'm hoping to lose a few pounds. :)

Well, I guess I've gone on enough for now.
Thanks to those who is reading my blog. :)

Till next time....Hugs!!

This is great!!

Well, now that I know people are checking out my Blog I will write more often!! I just wish I knew how to do all that 'fancy' stuff like posting pictures and such!! Oh well, I hope that I don't bore you too much!!

I was sick this past week. I had a cold. I'm so thankful that it didn't get as bad as it could have. I was still able to work even though mopping the lunchroom floor just about made my head explode on Thurs. since it was so stuffed up!! But, God is good, and He saw me through. :)

I've started reading a book called, 'Thin Within.' I'm praying this will be the key to losing weight and keeping it off for good. It not only helps with the eating aspect of weight loss but it also helps you realize why you overeat. Or why you eat the things you eat. I'm excited about seeing what it says.

Tonight Hannah and I are going to a 'Chinese Auction' at one of our local Elemenary schools. It's not a like a typical auction where you bid on things. Although they will have silent auctions, too. But for every $5 you spend you get 20 tickets with the same number on it. There are tables full of different prizes with little cups near the prize and you put your numbered tickets in the cup next to the prize you'd like to win. Then the M.C. draws a number out of the cup and if it's your number you win that prize. It's a lot of fun and we usually come home with something. But there's usually 2 women that win most of the prizes!! And that's a bummer!!

We've had 'snow showers' today. It won't amount to anything because the ground is too warm but when I got up this a.m. it was 44 degrees and now it's about 33 degrees. Brrrrr! We're in for some more 'snow' later tonight but I'll believe it when I see it!! LOL!!

I was 'tagged' by Roni this a.m. and I've answered all the questions I just need to find 3 other people to 'tag' who have blogs. I haven't been 'blogging' much so I'm kind of out of the loop about who has a blog and who doesn't. So if any of you reading this would like to be 'tagged' please let me know and I'll pass on the questions!!

Well, that's it for now.
Have a great day!! And thanks for reading this!!

I've been tagged!!

Thanks Roni, for tagging me!!

What you do is Copy this post and then Paste it to your blog and then 'tag' 3 other people. Have fun!!
