Thirteen Thursday.

I totally forgot to post my list of thirteen things about me last week... I guess I got so wrapped up in posting about how my posts will be few and far between until I have more things done, I forgot. I'll post that first today so that I don't miss it again this week.

Thirteen Favorite Healthy/Not So Bad Snacks (in the order that they come to mind):

1. Yasso Greek yogurt bars
2. Roasted chickpeas
3. Naturebox Big Island Pineapple
4. Pistachios
5. Almonds
6. Light String Cheese
7. Apples
8. Strawberries
9. Baby carrots and some type of dip (preferably light)
10. Reduced Fat Wheat Thins with Alouette Light Garlic and Herb Spread
11. Hummus....and veggies or crackers.
12. Protein bars/balls (home made)
13. Greek Yogurt and fruit.

Annnnd now I'm hungry... Suppose I should make dinner soon!

I'm feeling slightly overwhelmed from being so busy as of late. I feel like I have a bunch more stuff to do at home to get things cleaned/organized/packed and no time in which to do it. Last weekend was a special case because I babysat on Saturday and that occupied the day. I didn't want to spend the day Sunday working since my boyfriend worked all day Saturday....Which I guess is pretty much my own fault because I wanted to just spend time together, talking and whatever else rather than work. So I did a couple things on Tuesday night but felt so tired that it was just "too much" at the moment. I worked on a tutu that my Aunt asked me to make for my cousin's little girl.  Then of course when I went to bed (after struggling to stay awake) I couldn't sleep. UGH! 

So tonight my plan is to get a little more done around the house and finish the tutu.  I'll do more around the house this weekend.  We're in for more yucky weather so I don't think we will be going anywhere this weekend. I guess we're getting two inches of snow between Friday night and Saturday morning.  Saturday should be clear, but I'm not sure what the roads will be like. I'm not even sure what they'll be like tomorrow...The weather says rain. And cold.  And then later a snow/rain mix.  Let's just hope it isn't super slippery in the morning.... I HATE the drive to work in bad weather. Not.  Fun. 

I debated staying up here again tonight but I have nothing with me so I'd have to go shopping just to buy an outfit for work.  I really don't want to do that because there aren't many places to shop around here... We have two large discount type stores (Walmart and Meijer) and one store where people actually shop for clothing (Maurices). I'm not fond of Maurices...Just not really my style or preferred brand...And it's where a lot of kids shop so some of it just isn't the same as my taste. Plus most of the female population in this town goes there. Blah. I'm also not fond of dropping 40 bucks on a shirt or jeans or whatever (honestly don't know much about their prices) that isn't the best quality.  I'd rather spend 60 on something more sophisticated and my style, that I know will last, from Banana or something.

So anyway, I decided to be stubborn and go home because I don't have extra clothes here and I don't feel like shopping at a place I don't even like just to have something to wear. I also want to finish this tutu and get some stuff done around this house! Plus I have a small project to do for a friend of my boyfriend soooo I should work on that too.  So...In addition to being a bit of a clothing snob today, I have too much to get done. Now let's just hope the roads aren't too bad tomorrow....I have lots to do at work!

I guess that's it for now...I'm off to start more cleaning, packing, and moving things around in the house so that it'll be ready to load into the trailer whenever my Dad gets it down here. Moving really is a bit of a pain, but I'm kind of glad to be getting rid of some stuff.  I keep saying it's crazy how much stuff I accumulated in 10 years but looking at the overall picture, it really isn't THAT bad.  I think I have a lot of small things, like craft supplies, and I KNOW I have a ton of clothes and shoes...So that stuff makes it seem like there's a lot there. Or maybe it's just that I've taken several bags to my Dad's dumpster, have given stuff away, and have stuff ready to sell and/or donate that makes it not seem so bad... I guess just getting rid of stuff makes a bigger difference than I realized!

Hope you're having a great week!! I'll try to post once more before the weekend... But we shall see!
