it's friday and time for "yes i did"! i may share good things i've done this past week, or not so good things. but just know that i've never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed. to join in or read others "yes i did" posts check out jeanette's blog!
yes i did call to reschedule a meeting with bethany's teacher because i was feeling badly...i had a cold.
yes i did attend the meeting two days later. (i'm not that much of a slacker!)
yes i did do a little dance of happiness and cheer when i realized that wednesday was not an early release day from school as it should have been, because of the upcoming holidays.
yes i did a major, never done before, accomplishment...i have not eaten one piece of the girl's halloween candy loot. not a one!
yes i did use that as an excuse to extend my rule of only eating brach's candy corn and creme pumpkins during the month of october. i also did go to the store and forage through the left over, marked down halloween candy in search of the beloved brach's.
yes i did get myself a pack of pretty colored markers and a drawing pad just in case i feel the urge to doodle. i have no intentions of sharing them.
yes i did manage a week's worth of meals never once using the stove or oven.
yes i did receive my copy of the pioneer woman's cookbook. i expect that the stove and oven will really come to appreciate the break that i've given them.
yes i did start my christmas shopping.
yes i did get a few things from the christmas list at an inflated price from amazon sellers because i knew they are hard to find items. i justified the over priced purchases by not only comparing prices among the sellers, but also factoring in the time and cost of gas, as well as the stress that making many trips to wal-mart (yuck) would have given me.
