First Week at Home

Ok, so it's been awhile since I have been home full time and it takes some getting used to. I got quite a bit accomplished this week but not nearly as much as I anticipated. Monday was the last day of spring break so I dropped Brent off at the beach with friends which equaled almost two hours of driving time - there and back and there and back! But he had a good time and that is what is important.

Tuesday I had a doctors appointment. And I had to wait forever! My appointment was at 9 and I didn't get out of there until 10:30. My doctor is in Bonita and there are all sorts of thrift stores in Bonita. I went to five - the big Goodwill, three church thrift stores and the children's ranch store. The children's ranch store is upscale and has lots of furniture but I always find some knick knack that I love. Tuesday I found these:
Apothecary jar number one filled with shells. For $4.50! I won't leave the shells in there but I love the jar.
And apothecary jar number two - larger, cool shape and filled with I am not sure. Was marked down from $25.00 to $9.00. What a deal! My apothecary jar collection is coming along quite well.

So, after my thrift store shopping expedition the rest of the day was basically a wash. Oh, and my doctor told me no sugar, limit butter, cheese, salad dressing, mayo and shrimp. And I need to walk every day. I don't think I like my doctor anymore!

Wednesday and Thursday I spent cleaning and doing some prep work for eBay. I did get a few things listed on Turbo Lister yesterday so think I am up and running. Just need to keep is going.

I made a Google calendar of all my school work left to finish and the date is it due. The semester ends in early May so it is getting down to the wire and I have lots of writing to do. Three 250 word essays, one 500 word essay and one 1500 word essay - all for one class. Seeing is on paper makes is more manageable.
