Thank you all for the sweet, wonderful, encouraging comments you all left yesterday. I try not to be whiny on the blog because... well, honestly who wants to read whiny posts? But it felt good to get it out, and it was so nice to hear you all say you've been through the same, or you understood, or you just sent hugs. Thank you so much. (And extra thanks to Misses T - I got your hug via my brother! :) )
Today is a new day! I feel so much better today. With all your comments I was on the mend, and once Ben got home I was starting to feel better. And I have decided that I will let go of the things that are not super important right now. I was starting to make myself crazy. (Like dealing with the berries. They are in the freezer and can stay there until I have a chance to do something with them.)
We got the kids over to Mimi's house and she watched them while we went out. We went to the bank and were able to get new cards for our main account without any hassle. My business account will take some time because I have to dispute some of the charges. So am without a bank card until that is over. Thankfully I still have PayPal if I need it. So, that is taken care of.
We went to Home Depot to get new toilet parts, and got a new seat while we were at it since the hinges were broken on our old one. It looks like a brand new toilet! (Is it weird I'm kind of excited for a fixed toilet? haha.) Ben even scrubbed the whole thing, and I told him it was the best anniversary gift. He's very good at cleaning. Better than I will ever be!
After we ran our errands we had a wonderful, delicious dinner at Olive Garden. I had an amazing Lobster & Shrimp stuffed cannelloni. It was SO GOOD. I highly recommend it.
Then we went to Goodwill and got Ben some new jeans and a belt. By the time we got back with the kids, it was bed time so straight to bed they went and we got to keep our evening going with quiet (and toilet fixing, lol) until we went to bed and I passed out and got a full nights sleep. I haven't slept that well in over a week. It was a wonderful evening.
Today, I am baking, which always seems to take the blahs out. It's faster than knitting, and I get to eat stuff when I'm done! :D So far I have sandwich bread rising, and a loaf of applesauce bread in the oven. I think I will make granola and maybe a sweet as well. I also pulled some pumpkin out of the freezer just in case I want to make pumpkin bread as well.
Make sure you come back tomorrow for the next installment of the How We Homestead Series!
