Wow, what happened to Monday and Tuesday??

So, what was the last 'nice' thing you did for yourself? Did you splurge on something? Treat yourself to an item you've been wanting? Or maybe you splurged on time for just YOU!?? We need to remember that ME time more often and don't feel guilty about doing good things for yourself. You more than deserve it.

I splurged on a pair of scissors! shocked tongue OK, I can hear many of you thinking...a pair of scissors??? OK??? Big deal...a pair of scissors. But I'm a quilter and sewer and having a great pair of very sharp scissors is essential. On my best pair of fabric scissors I tied a black ribbon on the handle. If anyone uses them black is the appropriate color...lol But these are tiny scissors, embroidery scissors than must be sharp and be able to trim fabric as well. I've had many pair over the years but they just don't last because they were cheap ones. What I wanted was some made by Gingher...the Rolls Royce of scissors. I was looking around on ebay one evening last week and there were exactly what I wanted at about 1/2 the price including shipping! So yesterday my little package came in the mail and I'm still smiling. Now, all I need to do is find another black ribbon for this pair. smilewinkgrin

What's your 'nice' thing you've done for YOU?

I got a new light fixture for our kitchen last weekend. The one we had was an ugly long florescent thing that looked like it belonged in a garage. The new fixture looks so much better. It doesn't take much to make me happy.

I know what you mean with the scissors Chutz. I have a pair of hair cutting scissors for trimming my bangs that I hide so no one cuts who knows what with them.

My passion is updating old furniture and small home improvements. I also LOVE thrift stores and charity shops. So...I asked my husband for this really ancient antiique table for valentines and got it for a steal. I could have just gone and picked it up, but it meant more to me for him to "give" it to me for valentines day.

It started me on a binge of replacing things and changing small things in my house. These small changes give me so much pleasure that I get lost in them. Pain sort of goes to the back burner when I have a project, and this is the first time in a year that I have been able to work toward my "projects".

It makes me feel better to think about getting started on another.......hmmmmm, what can I do next???????

I went whole hog last month and treated myself to a Kindle.  It is am e-book that allows you to store your library and for me the big plus is the ability to change the font or text size any time you want.  If I am the least bit tired I have difficulty reading and focusing.  The kindle allows my to make all book larger print when I need it.  Wonderful!  I can read at night again!

O this is perfect for me. Yesterday I cut 11" off of my hair and donated it to locks of love. I also got a long bob which I've wanted forever and red streaks. I also got my nails done and eyebrow's waxed.

This past weekend I bought beads for the jewelry I make and a rug and lamps for my living room.

The makeover came after my first therapy session in 15 years.

I am making a change; these diseases will no longeer control me. I can hurt laying down or hurt moving, so I'm moving. And I'm exercising and laughing. Lol...abilify is great.

I joined weight watchers about four weeks ago and have lost 12 pounds. I am very happy to have finally made this change for my health.

Tonight I had some chinese food which is high in points but I calculated it within my daily point allowance and feel I did something nice for myself--still on the plan, but something I really, really like too.

I am already feeling better. The pain in my back has lessened since I lost the few pounds too.

Wish me luck and thanks for being here everybody!

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

Linda!

I'm so very happy for you and proud of ya also. It's so hard to get a handle on the extra pounds and food in general at times. And it truly is a gift to yourself.

Will keep warm thought for you!
