DH and I went out of town for the weekend. Drove up to Cincinnati and got a hotel room. We visitied Jungle Jims and the Hollywood Casino up there. I won, I lost, I won, I lost and came out losing overall. We did some shopping. I read a book. We went out to eat a couple of times. I’ll be glad when winter is over. Seems like all we do is soak up the free hotel rooms and visit casinos. Really…I’ve got to find a new hobby.
I’ve also got to stay in touch more with my chicklets. I log on most mornings, do a quick post and then hit the door running. Today, I have a lunch meeting with the National Honor Society kids, followed by a staff meeting after school and then a meeting with the Junior National Honor Society selection committee after that. I should be getting in around 5:00.
I’m still trying to do something good for myself everyday. Even though some of those good things may seem a little strange. Yesterday, for instance, I cleaned up a ton of DH clutter. Cleaned out a box he put in the closet, got his tools out of my kitchen drawers, and cleaned out a box of clutter he’d stashed in a corner of the bedroom. Spools of thread, loose change, bandaids, pens and pencils, old ads, socks, etc. He just scoops it all up, puts it in a box or drawer and considers everything cleaned up. I got a great deal of satisfaction from sorting everything and putting it where it goes. Even found some “man thing” a gizmo for checking some connection on the car that he meant to return with the receipt in the bag. Stashed under the bed. $39.99 that could be in our pockets instead of under the bed. I started a “stash” of loose change in a decorative box on my nightstand. Came up with $11.43 in the bottom of the boxes, in the drawers and in my old purses. I’m going to return the car thing and add the $39.99 to my stash, too. It may have been DH’s when he bought it but I’m collecting a “finder’s fee”.
It’s that time already…gotta get this day moving.
