Nail Files. Week # 296

These are minis that I got from the Fabfitfun box.

These colors are Shape of My Heart (pink) & Like a Virgin (white). They are a bit shear. I don't normally wear shear colors. I have never bought a Deborah Lipmann polish because they are so expensive.

Stuff & Things

~Since we are getting more snow tomorrow & Saturday, I have been planning some Summer vacations. We'll be going to Cape Cod for a night or 2. We have to decide. We'll also be going to Vermont for the hot air balloon festival again if the weather is nice. I'm also so sick of March that I already changed the calendar to April. Tara noticed today & said "it's not April yet". I said "it's close enough".

~I'm really into essential oils & got a diffuser 2 years ago for Christmas. I found this oil at Walmart the other day. It smells soooo good. I'm thinking of getting another diffuser for the kitchen, mostly for when Tara does her homework. To help her focus.

~Things aren't getting that much better between the cats. They have slept on the same bed together & sniffed noses, but still having bad fights. I'm kind of thinking it wasn't such a great idea getting a 2nd cat. Not that I don't love Bianca, but because she is making Kizzy upset & she seems depressed.

Hey, It's Okay.

-That I'm okay hybernating in the house on cold stormy days. We've had a lot of raw weather with rain lately. It's been kind of depressing. More to come for Friday & Saturday.

-That I'm watching the Fergie twins on Freeform. They are dumb, but funny or pretending to be dumb. I think they are entertaining.

-That I've been staying up late to get things done. I've been up until after 11:00 the past few nights, but I am heading to bed & hoping to read a few pages of my book that I'm hoping to finish by April 1.

-That I haven't had my hair trimmed in 6 months & it hasn't even grown. I'm hoping to go this Saturday or next to have it trimmed. Hubs is having his trimmed too. It's a family event.

-That I have so many scratches from our new cat. I'm putting medicine on them & I hope they heal quickly. They are hurting now as I'm typing because they are on my fingers & hands. She's cute, so she can get away with that.

Nail Files Week # 295

This week I have on Tips & Toes from Ac Moore. It's RP100, I guess. I like the size & shape of the bottle & the color is pretty for tips or toes.

Sunday Night Musings

It's Sunday night & we had a busy weekend. We went to my parent's house on Saturday & then went to dinner with my Dad (I already wrote about that in my last post). Tara had a birthday party sleepover & they went to see "Beauty & the Beast". I really have no interest in it. T said it was okay. So anyway, hubs & I drank some wine & had chocolate ice cream & watched the movie "Spinal Tap". He had never seen it. I had to explain to him that it was a fake band. It was so dumb that it was funny. The days have been so long lately. Next weekend will be a little crazy. A is going to a hockey game with his friends, so I have to try to keep T busy. I'm also still waiting for Spring.

New England Minute~Wahlburgers

Wow, I haven't done a New England Minute in a long time. Today we went to visit my parents & we went to Wahlburgers restaurant. It's owned by Mark Wahlburg, his brother Donnie & the rest of their family. The funny thing is I'm not a fan of either of them, but thought it would be cool to check out. I don't even like burgers. haha. I got a chicken sandwich. I thought they were a bit expensive because you had to pay for your side. So I got french fries. But the food was good & it had a fun atmosphere.

My Dad & Tara.

This was on the ceiling. They had movie posters as you walked to the bathroom

Hopefully I will be doing a New England each month now. Warmer weather in April means fun times & getting out seeing New England.

Too Much Going On

I really need to cut down on things. I have too much going on & feel like I take on too much & spend too much $. Doing swaps, mailing packages, monthly boxes etc..

The boxes I've tried so far are Budhibox, Fabfitfun & Lipmonthly. Budhibox is like a yoga box. I got it once & then canceled. Fabfitfun, I will be getting my 4th box (seasonal) next week & then I am canceling. $50 per season is just way too much when I am a stay at home Mom. I just got the Lipmonthly box a few days ago. It has 5 products, kind of thought that it would be 5 lip products, but it was a bag, 3 lip products & then a face mask. I will also be canceling that 1. I most likely will do a blog post on it.

1 of the groups that I am in on FB, they do giveaways on Fridays. If you win something you have to pick a secret sister to send something to. I won 2 giveaways last Friday, so I have to send packages to 2 people. I have no idea what to get for them. I'm hoping to find stuff & get them mailed out on Tuesday. But I think I will only enter if there is something that I really like & maybe I can have a few things put aside in case I do win & then send them off to people.

 So that is the plan. Get my life organized. Get stuff that I get from swaps like craft stuff organized before I start swapping & have stuff ready if I enter the giveaway. Find a subscription box that I love & can afford. I will try some new reasonable priced boxes & see if I like them.

Stuff & Things

~I've been getting new pen pals lately & trying to keep up with swaps etc... I've gotten a lot of Happy mail & I love it. My pen pal from MA is in CA right now & sent me this post card. I miss CA. I haven't been there since 1996 maybe, not even sure.

~I've also won a few things. This package came today. The bracelet is big for both Tara & I.

Waiting for another package of stuff that I won & some other happy mail.

Mommy & Me Monday

Yesterday before the Daddy/Daughter dance we went to our friend's house, so the girls could get ready together & take some pics. I got Anthony to take 1 of Tara & I. She looked so pretty.

Linking up with Krystyn from Really Are You Serious?

Busy Day

Today was a busy day. We went to a consignment sale for kids clothes. We spent $56, so we got a lot of stuff. Mostly Summer stuff. Then we went to vote for town stuff. Then we went to Anthony's friends Parents 50th anniversary party. I ate way too much. My parents 50th anni is Oct 13, so I'm not sure what we are going to do. My Dad is also turning 80 in July. I'd like to have some type of party. We have awhile to figure it out.

Stuff & Things

--Lately- I've been feeling a little weird going into stores like Forever 21. So I run in real quick & look around & then leave. Maybe I should start shopping online?
--Winter Blues-I've had the Winter blues the past week or 2. It's been in the 20's the past few days. We are so close to Spring, but yet so far. We might get another storm this weekend. Tara & Anthony have their Daddy/Daughter dance on Sunday & it's only going to be 38 degrees out.
--Losing it-I'm always losing things. I lost my postage stamps. I've been looking all over for them. I might need to go buy some new 1s.

How are you Brave?

There are so many ways to be brave. We all have so many things going on in our life. Struggles with being a Mom or a wife. Balancing things. To add to that having fibro & chronic fatigue. I have to be brave every day when my whole body is aching & I get a lot of headaches. But you have to push on & make lunches, cook dinner, go food shopping & then sometimes just stay in bed. I take 2 naps most days. But I feel that I am brave because I keep going, pushing forward. Waiting for the next challenge that I have to take on. How are you brave?

Nail Files. Week # 293

This polish is Orly~Royal Navy. I got this nail polish last weekend. In the bottle it looks like it has a shimmer, but when you put it on & it dries you really can't see the shimmer. I was hoping it would stay like that. I have lots of blues this shade, so I probably wouldn't have gotten it.

Stuff & Things

* We got our new cat last Saturday. Our old cat isn't happy at all. She keeps growling. Bianca, the new cat is staying in our bedroom & bathroom. The door in the middle opens to the bathroom. I'm looking forward to letting her out, but we are trying to take is slow.

* I won a wine glass from the animal shelter that we got our new cat, Bianca at. They were doing 8 days of giveaways & I won on day 7. I haven't won anything in a long while.

*I'm impatiently waiting for my 1st Lip Monthly box & the Fabfitfun Spring box. At least I know I'll be getting some happy things in the mail.
