Home Again

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.

I am glad that you got away and had a good time. 🙂
Good for you keeping the finders fee! 😉
Have a great day Patty.

Finder’s fee. Yeah! Go with the decluttering. I’m hoping to keep that on my mind and do some decluttering of my own. Don’t think I’ll find more than a couple of 5¢ coins, but maybe i’ll uncover something worth putting on eBay for a few $

Hey there! I started a new blog for this year – 52 pounds in 52 weeks. We’ll see how that goes. So far so good!
Congrats on the change and the cleaning. Always good to purge someone else’s stuff!!

I also like the idea of something good for you every day. We all deserve something good so it is a nice mantra.

How is the crazy DIL? I hope no more car issues.
