Spent $4.25 today, total indulgence!

June 16th, 2013 at 03:41 am

I needed to return a couple of books to the library today, but the one I usually go to would have been a nightmare to get into because of a community event that was going on downtown. So, I went to one of the smaller ones that was closer to home anyway. Not as much selection, but it was close, there was plenty of parking and I found a book to check out. (the Christmas Fix It and Forget It, a slow cooker cookbook). Even though it is a "Christmas" themed book, it has several recipes I want to try.

When we moved our satellite service, they gave us "premium" channels for no charge for six months. I have yet to find anything on them, so I am glad they are free. I watched DD1s kids for a while today so she and SIL could go on a date for Father's Day. They have given up TV service and instead use Netflix and Hulu. Their cost is about $20. Quite a savings over what satellite and cable cost. I will definitely keep that in mind for future decisions.

I spent $4.25 today. I stopped and bought a ice coffee and a water on my way to DD1's. I found a small insulated lunch box in my dad's shed the other day, and I plan to start using that to cart cold water when I go to town. The coffee was because I didnt sleep too good last night because of the bangs and bruises and I wanted a perk me up to watch the kiddos.

I have an appt for my hair tomorrow, but I am going to call and postpone it until next weekend. I think it still looks ok from the last cut/color...and I am a little too sore to go through the process...although, the black eye would probably look nice with a new do. Big Grin

R has called every day (at least twice a day) and really wants to work through the problem. I get six free counseling sessions through my job, so I will call next week and make an appointment to help sort out what is best. In the meantime, I am using this month to sort through feelings and heal my heart.

Tomorrow is Father's Day. I miss my dad so much this year. I wouldnt have shared the events of the past couple of weeks with him, but I sure would have enjoyed his stories and hugs. If you still have your dad- I am envious. I know every father/daughter relationship is unique and not all are good ones- but I would truly give anything for a day, an hour..a hug with my dad.

Happy Father's Day to all of our daddy bloggers and visitors! Enjoy YOUR day tomorrow!

    Actually, you are smart checking out the Christmas cookbook because you can enjoy it leisurely and not have to worry that someone else needs it for the holidays.

    Hope the counseling helps!

    I understand about wishing you could talk to your dad. I'd so love to be able to share with him what's happening with NE and I - I'm just glad that NE knew him before.

    Six sessions can accomplish a lot, especially if both parties are really wanting to work on the issues. It sounds like R really wants to fix things.. I hope that whatever is best for YOU works out. {{hugs}}

    I cherish my dad. There's not a time I've spent with him that I don't feel better because of it. I will probably always feel like I'm never quite making up for lost time, but I am grateful for the time I have had with him.

    i can relate to missing your dad - i would give anything to be able to talk to my dad and get a big hug from him. good luck with all of your new directions and working through this current challenge that you are facing. sounds like you are finding solid ways to take care of you first while you decide what you want. take care.
