The weekend was good. Not fantastic or spectacular, but good. And I'll take good.
Saturday I managed to get over to the bookstore sale and I bought two shelves for $30 - woo hoo! I can't pick them up until the store officially closes, but that's ok - I'll make do.
I headed off to my writing retreat later that afternoon and had a blast. The gals from my chapter are some of my dearest friends. We were dedicated, too, taking time to gab AND time to write! We went and had a hamburger down at the bowling alley (yes, this was a very small town - 1700 people) and for a pop, hamburger, and curly fries, it cost me $3.25. Can you believe that??? I'm so used to paying $7 or $8 for a hamburger in the city that I couldn't get over the price! And it was GOOD. You just can't beat small town cafes.
Sunday hubby and I went grocery shopping. He's determined to lose weight before his mom's wedding this summer and we really bought a lot of great, nutritious food. I am excited by what I have in my kitchen now. Lots of whole grains, veggies, low-fat fare. Even found some sugar-free spaghetti sauce, and we're substituting ground turkey for ground beef (but hubby didn't like the spaghetti I made - said it tasted too bland. But he's picky. LOL). I also found some Pillsbury sugar-free cookies which I baked last night. While they will work, they still don't taste quite the same, and if you eat too many of them, well, let's just say you'll be spending some time in the bathroom.
I didn't get any more writing done yesterday, but I plan to hit it hard tonight after I exercise. The house is half-way clean and I just need to keep doing laundry. Other than that, I don't have any plans other than writing! :-)
I've got a new home on the web - stop by if you get a chance! www.melissamarsh.net
