I have been keeping busy and spending money that EX gave me this weekend, none of my own!
Yesterday Little Man and I went to Livingston to see one of my sisters and her family. I almost came home with a puppy too! My sister and her husband gave this woman 2 big neon signs and were supposed to be able to get 2 puppies for them (the puppies are $250 each but the neon signs are worth about $400 each) but the woman changed her mind last minute and only let my sister take one puppy because she needs the money (totally understandable). It may have worked out for the best. I would LOVE to have the puppy but what would my 8 year old dog do plus how would I pay for all the stuff puppies need? It was a good day though. Got to spend time with my sister and her son and Little Man played together. We were supposed to go to Eagle Fest but decided that the weather wasn’t cooperating well enough so we just hung out. That was fine with me! Here is my sisters puppy. The one I was going to get was black and named Yoda because he had Yoda ears! My sisters dog is named Chewbacca.
When we left and drive back to Houston, I took Little Man to the Rainforest Cafe at the Galleria Mall. We had coupons so dinner for 2 was $20 and we got 3 toys in the gift shop for under $20. He even ate everything on his plate! I was so excited, I let him go to the Lego store and get a Lego Minecraft set plus go to Game Stop and get a new Pokemon game from their used game selection. I told him thanks for being my date tonight so I could stay out of the house a bit longer and he smiled and said thank you for everything!
Today has been pretty lazy although I completed my first mystery shopping assignment! That was fun. I spent money on lunch for myself but that was spectacular so I’m not complaining! I’ll get paid back for the parking plus the job fee. It was a good experience and I can’t wait to do more this week!
I weighed myself yesterday morning before we left and I was down to 203.8!!! So hopefully I weighed myself last time on a bad day or the wrong time when it showed 210. Otherwise, how did I lose 6.2 pounds in a week? I’m not complaining though, not at all! I’m really working hard again at this. I was really mad at myself when I saw that 210. I worked so hard to get to 200, why did I let myself get 10 pounds heavier??? So now I have changed it. I got some skinny cow chocolates at Costco. They are so good!!! I have to keep a hold of myself to only eat one a day!
My car is running good. My house is clean. I’m not as depressed as I was last week. I hope this is a good week! Hugs!
