Proud of myself

15 Mar

I was very proud of myself this weekend my daughter went to the dark side. We had a comic con and she got her picture taken with Darth Vader. It was a lot of fun. I managed to spend only $8 for a Totoro necklace. Love the movie and got one with the big guy and the tiny white one. If you have not seen the movie I highly recommend it. I also have been depressed lately…long story short the hubby and I got into it. I subsequently had to get rid of all my Lush stuff. I personally love Lush products. It sucked getting rid of it because my husband is allergic to it. I would rather do it than get rid of Noel my beloved bunny.
I have a few triggers when I am down and/or depressed I either eat more than I should or I dont eat. I also will shop but, I did stop myself from buying something I dont need. I thought about it and remembered that I really want to go to France so I figure this purchase will take away from my daughter and I going to France so I did not purchase that new whatever it was I was looking at. I was very proud of myself for not spending a lot of money and for recognizing my triggers to shopping plus the only things I bought was the above mentioned necklace and a new book that I have been waiting for awhile. The book only cost me about $22.00 much better than the $130 or so whatever I was looking at.

Frustrated as a vegan?

Spring cleaning even if the weather outside is frightful

4 Mar

Today I spent a bit of time getting rid of a lot of my daughters clothes that she has out grown. Whew what a chore. It is amazing to me how much winter and summer clothes mainly the winter clothes that I have gotten rid of and I only have one child. Now she has a lot less in her closet to choose from (as it should be) and she still has plenty of clothes to wear. I wish I had gotten a before shot but, basically the clothes at the right side of the screen you could not even see. Yup folks she had that many clothes. I have however asked her grandmother my mom to get her a few items of clothes 2 pairs of black leggings, a pair of jeans, and 2 sweaters in her size for her upcoming birthday. She will need them for next winter and hopefully my mom can find all these items on sale or something. 20160303_144332

I love spring it was raining and snowing at the same freaking time. Of course by early next week we will be in the low 70s. Ahhhh I just want it to be either warm aka 60s or so or just stay cold and miserable.

Cold and product review

2 Mar

This past weekend our washing machine decided to go out so we unfortunately had to go out and get another one. Really wish things were designed to last 20 years or longer. Yeah I know then you wouldnt have the great joy of having to go out and get something shiny and new sorry had to wax a little Madonna 80’s style. We did pay for this in cash so bonus for us no financing or credit need apply. Even though it hurts to be out this amount of cash I would so much rather do things this way than any other.
Now for the cold, our lovely heater in the house we are renting decided that 55 was warm enough, sorry it is not and is only supposed to go down to 64 before the heat turns on. That was this morning. It was warmer outside than in our house. Well now it is taking 2 or more hours just to get to our usual balmy 65 in our house. No wonder our electric bill has been so outrageous.
Daiya has come out with a lovely new to me product. A frozen “cheesecake” in New York style, Strawberry, Chocolate, and Key Lime. I have only so far tried the New York. It is in the frozen section. It is good, but a bit small. I personally like to make my own “cheesecake” using silken tofu and other ingredients. I can also make mine a lot bigger and can control how much sugar I want. This is a bit too small basically the packaging is bigger than the “cheesecake” and it is way too sweet in my opinion. This is good for someone who either needs something in a hurry and doesnt have the time to make their own. It is good enough and not to brag but, I personally think I can make a better “cheesecake”.
