I think I'm finally recovering from my emotional roller coaster that I was on with my dad. The combination of sitting at the hospital for 2 days and traveling and worrying, had me very worn out last week. But, things are back to normal around here, so my brain is slowly returning.
Yesterday I did a big shopping trip to CVS. I saved $99.99 by using coupons and rolling my Extra Bucks all on that trip, so that was a 55% savings. However, as I've stated before, when you watch the Extreme Coupon show and see them saving 90%, it kind of puts a damper on the measly 55% you've accomplished. Oh well, that's still a great savings. I'll just have to keep shooting for that 75% goal!
I need to be working on school prep for next year but I'm just enjoying a little downtime. Trying to enjoy the summer a little before I jump into organizing. The funny thing is - I'm not great at relaxing!
Last night I stopped all busy work to watch The Bachelorette (I know, I know) and I found myself sitting on the edge of the couch, not taking time to actually relax. It's like I needed to get up during every commercial and go do something. That's the way I've always been. I don't like just sitting and doing nothing.
Today I'm treating myself to a pedicure and manicure, then taking Collin to violin lessons. Pedicures have to be one of my all-time favorite treats. It seems lazy not to do it yourself, but every now and then, it's nice to be pampered.
I'm hoping to get some swimming in this summer. I would hate for that hawk to be the only one enjoying the pool!
Tune in later this week for some pictures of some of the projects we've got going on around here.
