I have to say, I spent more money today than I had planned to. Stopped at JCPenny’s to look at shoes and their “Red Hot” sale. Bought a pair of Nike’s – Regularly $95 for $55 – and two shirts for $8 each – both regularly over $40. I wore one of them to the meeting I had today. I thought I looked nice until I looked in the mirror when I got home – the shirt made me look so fat I wanted to cry.
I have decided to keep my gym membership. My son wants me to add him when he gets his license back – I told him I would only if he used it this time. I can’t say much though – I haven’t been going like I should either but that is about to change again.
Next month I hope to buy a bicycle. I want to ride my bike to work on my 10-hr days – get the exercise and what not. I’m almost afraid to get one because I will find out how out of shape I am for it – I could always go 30 to 60 miles without tiring before but having not biked much for 10 years I can imagine how hard 12 miles will be.
However it is a hobby I really enjoy so I would like to get back into it. Would like to get moved to Coralville or IC so I could walk and bike to work more. That would be so awesome. I need to walk more.
Anyway, after I got out of the meeting I went to O’Kelly’s for lunch and drank two margaritas. The second one gave me quite the buzz so I sat there reading for 90 minutes before driving over to Walmart. At Walmart I bought stuff I needed – no extras from there like blu-rays. I saw a purse I liked but refrained from buying it as I don’t really need a new purse. The only indulgence at Walmart was more wine coolers.
Came home and finished the book I was reading (already wrote the review) around 9:30 pm. Took the dogs on a brief walk – damn it is cold out there! Have been working on the internet since then – answering emails, paying bills, surfing. Right now the dishwasher is going but I may have to turn it off – it is so loud sounding to me.
Anyway, that has been my night. I’m going to go to bed now. I was going to stay up until 3 am but I can’t make it that long. The dogs want to go to bed too – they keep looking at me.
