Busy saturday! Getting organized for trip....

Sunday, May 15, 2016

Yesterday was a work day for me....and a busy one after that:
I got up early and went out of town to see 5 clients at this assisted living home. It was all very nice and pleasant except for one client who refused and was quite nasty about it.
So I went on to the next one who was as pleasant and talkative as could be. I love my job( minus the occasional refusal that is). So that will put me down to 4 clients there, hoping to pick up another client or two there, nice to se them all in one day with out having to travel around and they pay me on the spot so I don't have to fool around with billing etc.
I go and work there one saturday a month.
After work I was going to go to art walk with my friend susan but she never called me back then when I called her again she said she had to work. sigh
anyway, I ended up going shopping for clothes for our trip at kohls, I had 2 gift cards. So I spent some time trying clothes on and found a pair of capris and a pair of leggings so that puts my pants count up to 4 including the ones that I will be wearing. I also bought about 7 different solid colored tops For the entire trip I will be wearing bright neon colored running shoes, I don't think I will have any room to bring other shoes so that is it. I will definitely look like a tourist! I saved a bunch of money because their clothes are always on sale and they gave me a 15% discount which was nice. They also gave me $10 coupon to spend in a couple of weeks and I have some $ left on a gift card so I will go back that day to redeem the coupon. After kohls, I went to target and impulsively bought a new rain coat, big and bulky, it would have taken up a lot of space in my suit case. So talked with a girlfriend and she suggested that I just get those disposable little ones for a $1 and buy 4 of them and carry one with me in my fanny pack. So I took the coat back got my refund. After which I went to chipoltle for dinner which was quite good pulled pork bowl with black beans and corn and sauteed onions and peppers, sour cream and cheese. Yummy! I try not to eat shredded lettuce at restaurants due to the high percentage of food contamination associated with eating shredded lettuce.
After dinner I went to academy sporting goods store to buy a new fanny pack, a bigger one and was some what happy with their choices, either black or brown or floral. I picked the floral one.
I went back to target to use gift card and bought some groceries.
and went home to put them away. Then lastly I went to walmart and bought a toiletry bag to hold my personal stuff, with little 3 oz containers for shampoo etc. even a 3 ounce tube of tooth past and foldable tooth brush.
I came home and packed my bag and filled all of the bottles and packed most of my emergency meds( allergy pills, antibiotics in case I get a sinus infection, zyprexa if I get manic), small first aid kit, some supplements for GI health/regularity.
Anyway, it was a very productive day and I feel much better getting all of that sorted out/organized. I made a list of the things I needed to do and buy which is manageable. I went to bed at 11:30 and slept pretty good.

Yesterday was definintely a 4/5 day. But I got a lot done with jeff gone and the freedom to do what I wanted to do.
I am going to work on my list today, not sure when jeff gets home this evening. I think that I will make a pasta dish. Have not had pasta (I give up on dieting)in forever. I bought some grass fed beef at target yesterday...I have not been buying beef for a while now because it is not good for us and beef is the highest user in the carbon foot print ethically speaking, if that makes sense. Uses lots of resources to grow one cow.

Having a third cup of coffee and still in my jammies, will get the paper and read some of that. Sallys beauty store opens up at noon. I need more little bottles of polish, i give one per client, don't believe in sharing. They only have so many of the colors that I like. (I don't use all of the rage ones: blues, greens, black or sparkly) I buy a beauty club card that saves me money on each item and they sent me a 20% off coupon which is perfect timing.
Have a nice sunday!

    I have just come back from my holiday in Canada. We (daughter, son-in-law, my 2 grandson's and the older ones g/friend.) We were there for 3 weeks - Vancouver mostly but 4 days/3 nights in Seattle and 3 days/2 night in Victoria, Vancouver Island. I went fairly light, planning to buy clothes over there, but also took some 'warmer' clothing just in case, and the bag was quite a bit bigger than I actually needed to go over. 1/2 of my bag of clothes never got worn, and I bought a second bag to bring home all my spoils - LOL!

    Enjoy your time away :-)
