Looking Onward

Today has been one of those non stop days. I have been on the go all day, well, practically!

I went to the p.o., Sonic, Wal-Mart, Cato's and Shoe Show. Came home fed the boys put them down for a nap. Then I put me down for a nap due to a migraine. Got up showered, did some laundry and ironed. We had leftovers or at least I did. I got the boys ready and dressed (they stayed with my Mom this am). Hubby came in and changed, then we picked up my Daddy and headed to my nephew's basketball game, came home put the boys in bed and hubby and my Daddy left going to my oldest nephew's area tournment game. Whew! I ate a snack, loaded the dw and now I'm going for a long hot soak! With a book, Ms. Ellie!!!!!! Let's hope the kiddos stay alseep while I do that.

The boys had to have new shoes and I could not find any at the thrift store, Wal-Mart or Ebay that I liked or even came close to what I was looking for. I found 2 pairs of solid white K-Swiss that will double as a nice white casual shoe as well. They were marked to......hold your breath............$24.98 a pair. Oh, how I hate to even write that. I told the girl at the check out I had never paid over $8 for a pair for them and I think she thought I had lost my marbles. Anyhoo, i found a pair of white leather keds for $13 on clearance. Just my size....an 11. Got to have a big foot for a tall girl. I am only 2 inches from 6'! I also found my Valentine's Day present. I got the cutest UnionBay purse/bag. I did pay regular price at $19.99, but I will use it till it falls apart, so I don't feel quite so bad. I am one of those Mommy's that never buys herself ANYTHING!! I also got a little surprise in that cute purse/bag, unforunately ! A matching wallet. That WAS NOT suppose to be in there!!!! The tag on it said $11.99!!!! The cashier did not even look in it, nor did I until I got home. I called and told them that I would return it next week when I go back into town. I really hate it when something like that happens.

I also got a long denim skirt and a long black skirt at Cato's both marked to $6.99 each, thank you very much!

Now, with all that said, we priced cobra coverage today and in dependent health as well. I do not even like to think on that. $846.00 a month for cobra and $540.00 a month through Alfa. Both are BC/BS of Alabama. Hubby has also had another job offer working as a heavy equipment operator. So we will see where this and the other offer lead.


Tomorrow we will have a sitter. We are going to our favorite restaurant. Then on to see a movie. We also will visit with Hubby's mom on the way. She is still doing poorly.
We really need some time to ourselves. It has been along time since we have just been able to catch a few hours for us.

Last night I cooked a crock-pot style pork loin, made bbq baked beans, potato salad and a honey apple cake. All of that was for my mom. Her b'day was yesterday. It was quite good, as of the compliments I received. MY Mom was so happy.

I think that is all for now. I hope you all have a blessed weekend! Blessings!!!!!

Glad you found some good reads Ellie. I had to postpone my soak, the boys were too fussy. However, I am putting them down for a nap in a few minutes and I am going to get the soak and soak in a few pages too!
