. . No comments:
5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God for all the clutter and things we did not need that we were able to let it benefit someone else.
  • Thank you God I was able to switch children's ministry weeks with AI.
  • Thank you God for all the work that we got done around the house today that we really needed.
  • Thank you God for the United Postal Service, UPS and FedEx.
  • Thank you God despite yesterday's setback in the morning for the coughing, this is drastically been reduced and today I didn't really need hardly any aids here.
  • For some reason after I got out of my bed and went to my son's room.  He wasn't there rather spent the night at the neighbor's, so I opened up his clothing drawers in his closet.  What a mess.  This started me with just going through the school clothes and I found a few polos stained, so I need to get these stains out and I wanted to make sure he had enough school uniform stuff for the remainder of this school year.  Next year he will go to a different school and none of the clothing he has now transfer over.

    Just going through drawers wasn't enough, so then I went through all but one drawer and took out all the shirts and pants he no longer fits.  The stuff that I think his younger cousin would like, I put in a pile and the rest go to donation to Goodwill.  So, now his clothing drawers and clothes in his closet all fit and all the stuff I could find that are too small or close to being too small I got rid of - 3 bags and a box.  That also included going through his shoe bin.  Basically he either wears sneakers or flip flops.  Getting him anything else is a waste of money.
  • After going through my son's stuff, I went through a bag of clothing one of my SIL's gave me and took out what I wanted that was for colder weather and the rest went to be bagged for storage for now.  I also put away all the bags of clothing that I wasn't using that were strewn in my closet.  Now that's neater, but I still need to do some organizing of putting clothes on hangers in my closet.
  • I still have intermittently slight congestion, but it's very minute.  
  • We bought these pillows from Costco sometime last year and they are awful.  Donating these as they've hardly been used.  Very non-ergonomic.
  • Glad to have a new down comforter and pillows on our bed.  It's been a long time.  The new down comforter should be warmer than the one we have, but I will keep our old one as that is good for the summer, but I need to wash it.  No need to send it out for drycleaning.  It can be laundered in the washing machine on gentle and then fluff in the dryer.
  • Yesterday we used up all the zucchini and summer squash that was given to us.  Another couple days and they would've gone bad.  We also still have a few orange peppers and eggplants, so we need to use them this weekend.  Hmmmm, gotta figure out what to make.
  • Got a ton of work done before noon, but there is still a lot of work to be done.
  • My goal is to get three workouts done a week, but a minimum of 2.  Sundays will always be my day off.
  • Sliced my thumb yesterday on the Progressive International Dicer Blades.  Guess I sliced it pretty good since it took awhile to stop bleeding.  Normally I have great blood clotting.  It hurts like the dickens today.  Somewhat challenging to type.
  • The rice cooker we got a couple months ago from Goodwill doesn't make the rice like I like regardless of the amount of water I have.  The rice comes out too wet.
  • My daughter has been pretty consistent with her workouts.  She is making good use of my Zuzka Light subscription.  I hope to be doing that now regularly.
  • I was going to get some subcon work done today, but I really am exhausted.  Going to just watch a movie and eat leftovers.  Tomorrow I will cook and use up the eggplants, orange peppers, and the older gold potatoes.
  • Learned my mom sold her Lexus to my SIL's brother and bought a Ford Fusion.  Those are nice cars.  My dad bought a Ford Focus a few months ago.  Both cars are gray and both are nice.  We have a Ford Explorer.  My parents love Ford's and so do we.
  • After 13 hrs of doing all this stuff, I'm really zonked out.  Just going to finish watching MIB2.  I watched MIB3 last week and MIB last night.  I've been watching a little bit of movies after the kids are asleep and after I've finished all my subcontracting work, to wind down in the evening before bed, but it was a huge mistake to watch War of the Worlds before bed.  I'm still having daymares and some nightmares.
