Hi, everybody! Wow, last week went by fast and things were busy. I meant to put a blog post up last week about my spending in June, but I plan on doing that this week! ^ _^ LOCMom and I are still preparing for our big move and I am looking forward to it! Unfortunately, I did not save my receipts this weekend, so there will be no spending summary with today’s blog post. My bad. 😥 I gotta’ be better about that…
Anyway, come and see what I did this weekend!
On Saturday, I did a little Goodwill shopping while LOCMom visited with her friend at Barnes&Nobles. I bought a few things in there and even almost bought a pair of shoes for myself, but they were stained on the inside of them. Boooooooo. : ( They were also dirty on the soles, but that is something I could overlook since they seemed to be in decent shape. But alas, I left them there. : / It is so hard for me to find shoes for my feet in thrift stores because my feet are like, extra wide. That means I have to pay $876475759475 for a pair of shoes for my feet usually. 😥 But most recently, I got lucky at TJMAXX and managed to buy a pair of shoes that worked well for my feet! LOCMom bought me another pair that also worked for me as well, so thank you, LOCMom! 😀 I bought the shoes I found with one of my TJMAXX gift cards my LOCCousins and LOCFriendT got for me during my birthday party. So thank you to all of my LOCCousins and LOCFriendT! ^ _^
Here is a pic of my new shoes! ^ o^
I’m just praying to the Shoe Diety that my shoes will last me a long time and won’t fall apart quickly on me when I wear them… T _T
In the evening, I managed to declutter a few more items for our big move. It wasn’t much, but some stuff had to be pared down a little more. Basically, I have all of the important stuff that I will be needing for our big move. : ) I may or may not donate a manga series that I have to a local library in one of the small towns in our new county we will be living in, but we shall see. : ) I don’t really like giving manga series to thrift stores because I‘d rather libraries build up their manga shelves with my manga instead. ^ _^ That way, I will be able to share my manga series to the entire communities around our new area. I absolutely cannot wait to check out the Sacramento, CA library though and see their collection of manga books if they have any. I bet they are loaded with them! * O*
Speaking of manga, I also read a new manga last night that I had dropped for about a year because I didn’t like the conclusion to the last one I read. You could tell I was mad, haha. 😛 But I picked up the series again last night and I am happy that I did! I am pretty much near the ending of it, but I have about 7 more books to go until the end point. After reading this series, this manga collection will be heading off the nearest local library as well. 🙂
Sunday and What I Have Been Up Too!
Honestly, I did not do a lot of Sunday besides volunteer at my volunteer job WHICH I LOVE AND WILL MISS SOOOOOOO MUCH. T _T I am basically trying to volunteer as much as I can so I can say goodbye to all of the residents that I know the best at my job. They are all sad to see me go, but are wishing me well. 🙂 I may come back and visit with them sometime if I am ever in the area, but that is a big maybe. 😥 Today, I helped out with Bingo and everyone usually has fun trying to win prizes during the game. I even have my own little Bingo game I pull out during my get-togethers or parties with friends and family and I use the same format as my volunteer job’s workplace when they play Bingo with everyone there. : )
It has been really hot lately with the temperatures being over 100 degrees (that’s, I think, 37+ degrees Celsius for my blog readers outside of the United States 😉 ), so there has not been a lot of exercising going on with me. Booooooooo. : ( But I’m going to try and get out there tonight if the heat isn’t too bad… Weather permitting as well… O _O;;;
I have also been trying a new technique to reduce cellulite which is ACTUALLY suppose to work! It’s called dry brushing. It’s where you take a wooden brush with soft-ish bristles, rub your body down with it either going toward your heart or in a circular motion, and it’s suppose to reduce the look of cellulite along with other health benefits! One link I ran into on the net says you should do it twice a day, so I did. : ) I’m going to try this method out for a week and see how it goes. Wish me well!
And that is my weekend. : )
How was your weekend?
