Catching up....

ok, so I'm a bit of a flake....I finally admit it....guess I can't deny it! O well, live and learn!! So, I have some catching up to do...

For Treat Yourself Tuesday (yesterday)...I got two doses of treats!! I got to have lunch and laughs with my teaching partners Donna and Karen...we had a yummy salad and fruit, and lots and lots of laughs while we prepared for the return to school. Wow-I can't believe in one week I report back and in 13 days....kids!!! Crazy how fast the summer goes...it sounds so cliche but it's so true...I have no idea how 2 months have gone by already!! :) Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with my girls.

My 2nd treat was going to dinner and yogurt with the hubby...we didn't have our kids (Ben was at a friend's, Tay was at college group, and DJ is at my in-law's)...so when Donald got home, we decided to go get a bite. Very rare for midweek for us. So we hit up Jalapeno's for Taco Tuesday and then I got yummyyyyyyy Yogurtland. We also ran into a couple of friends and enjoyed some time with them. It was very nice! And what a great treat!

I have to say that I am really enjoying treating myself on Tuesdays...it has made me stop and put forth an effort to value myself-even if it's just a taco and yogurt!! I hope that you are at least attempting to treat yourself! :)

Sorry---no pictures from either event. Boo!!

Thanks for stopping by and please return tomorrow for my Thought for Thursday!!!


Treat Yourself Tuesday!

OK, so this is going to be a pretty odd treat, but here goes....my treat was .....organizing my closet!! I know, I know, I'm crazy! Who in their right mind actually considers working around the house a treat? well, I do...mainly because the clothes rod on my side of the our closet broke about 2 weeks ago, taking down the shelf with it.  See pictures... not pretty....

So, we had to wait about a week for the homeowner to come fix it, which meant piles of clothes everywhere in our room. We were traversing mountains of clothes for about 5 days...it got old real fast. Once it was repaired, LAST Saturday (as in the Saturday before last), I had planned to jump right in and put it all back together. Needless to say, that didn't happen right away. I started working on it last week, then life happened, and finally! Today, my side of the closet is neat, organized, and quite nice (if I do say so myself!). So here's the final result....

It doesn't look like much-but I'm proud of it!!

The huge pile of clothes for donating....I think I'm getting rid of 20 shirts/blouses, 10 pairs of pants, 4-5 pajamas, and many other various items. BTW-the closet cleanout led me to a dresser cleanout as well. I even went through my jewelry! It felt so good to purge!!

A nice shot of our bed-that we can finally see again!!
Just being able to sleep in a clean room is treat enough for me today! What are you treating yourself with today? :)
