During my outings the past couple of weeks, I've popped into Goodwill a few
times and came home with not only two pairs of Champion yoga pants
that look brand-new ($3 each!), but a summer top and these things for my home ~
This silver container is very heavy. Has a little sticker on the bottom that says
it's made in India. I filled it with cotton balls and it's in the hallway bath.
I love this bowl. Aren't the colors beautiful? This bowl has a sticker on the
bottom that says Design Guild, made in Thailand. I can't find anything online
like this. I'd love to know more about this bowl, if anyone has any insight.
I'm using it as a fruit bowl in my kitchen.
Found this small mirror - cool design, ugly color. Will be easy to spray
paint and make it pretty.
Of course, couldn't resist these cat bookends!
I love this cubed shelf ~ I'm hoping to use it in Tim's room, AKA the the guest
room when I decorate it. You can hang it either this way...
or, this way. I think I'm going to hang it this way because what could you put in
a diagonal cube except small books or CDs? (Which I hardly have anymore of,
anyway. Most of my music is digital.)
This was a brand-new lampshade, still wrapped in its original cellophane, from
Target. I thought I'd try it out on a lamp base in the living room, but nope.
Not right. Darn.
It definitely needs a white lamp base and I'm not sure if I want to paint
Here's the original lamp shade to that base, which looks much better.
Well, I scheduled that root canal. It'll be next Friday morning. I go between
feeling calm about it, to being very nervous. I hate any dental procedures
and have never had a root canal, so I suppose some of it is the fear of
the unknown. I did go online to read about it and that helped. I'm at the point
where I just want it to be over.
I went for my second acupuncture treatment for my shoulder a couple
of days ago and so far, so good. It has really diminished the pain, but I
still have a ways to go with range of motion. We're hoping just two more
treatments does the trick.
We think we've found a used car for Tim. There's just a few questions that
we had where we're waiting for the answers, then the possible negotiation
begins. Tim recently had two job interviews and we're hoping he gets hired
at one of them since he lost his job last Christmas. He's a full-time college
student but still needs that part-time job for living expenses. We're hoping
and praying this all comes together soon: employment and a car - which he'll
need to get to his job!
Brian got some good news the other day at work. His supervisor is taking an
early retirement and they automatically appointed Brian to take the position
temporarily until they officially hire someone. He was very honored to be
chosen - even if it's just temporary - plus it comes with a 8% increase in salary.
Will he officially go for this new job? He's not sure. The positives are the salary
increase and that the job is Monday - Friday, 7-3. He has never had a M-F
job. He's always been in the field where he's worked rotating shifts. It's rare
that he has a weekend off. The negatives? He's not sure at this stage of his
life if he wants the responsibility of being a supervisor. Like he said, sometimes
that's nothing more than being a glorified babysitter. But the biggest negative
is that he could easily lose his job as a supervisor. The field he's in (sorry I
can't be more specific - I'd rather keep these things private on social media)
has been consolidating with other towns, making one big department. One
department only needs one supervisor. Sooo...lots to think and pray about.
Have a good weekend, everyone. I still don't have any good weather news
for you in my neck of the woods. It's been frigidly cold all week again, with
temperatures in the single digits during the day and below zero at night.
And guess what's coming this weekend? Yep, more of that nasty white stuff.
