I had this cookbook. It's fantastic. You could cook a different meal every day for at least two years. For two people, though, that's way too much to eat. Anyway, I had that going so I didn't need to worry about dinner. Done.
Then I met Mom for a late breakfast at Eat 'N Park, which we hadn't had the opportunity to do for a while. That was nice.
Next stop - Wal-Mart. I know Wal-Mart can get a bad rap, but in this small town it's all we've got. They're in the process right now of building a Wal-Mart Superstore in our town and we're so excited. The local grocery stores aren't so happy about it, which I can understand. So I spent about an hour and a half just putzing and wandering around Wal-Mart. All by myself. Just getting things I needed for around the house. Some necessities and other things just to spruce up the house a little. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Next stop - grocery store. I know a lot of people don't like going to the grocery store, but I do. I had my computerized grocery list that I had printed off in the morning and then it feels so good to take my pen and scratch each item off as I put it in my cart. See, it really doesn't take much to make me happy, does it?
On to JoAnn Fabrics. I need new mini white lights for my mantel and wanted to see if there were any cute Valentine decorations left on sale. I found both.
Next - the yarn shop. Ohh, I love it there! I spend way too much time in there when I go. I hadn't been for a couple of weeks. I got some red tweed washable wool to make a new hat. I couldn't wait to get home, put away the groceries, eat the barbecue beef on bakery fresh kaizer rolls with cole slaw, so that I could go off to my sewing room and turn on American Idol and start knitting with that yarn. And that's exactly what I did.
Besides eating breakfast with my Mom and dinner with My Bob, I spent the whole day by myself. I really needed that.
None of the issues bothering me the other day have really changed, it's just that now I feel rested and more relaxed. I can deal with whatever life brings me again.
