The last two Fridays I have actually done something I haven’t done in a long time. Actually do something for myself and not someone else. Last Friday I was off so I had lunch with dad at a restaurant I chose. Then I went to Michael’s and Five Below and stopped at got myself a cup of coffee from my favorite, Dunkin’ Donuts. Then yesterday we ordered Chinese food for lunch at work, which I never get since I’m the only one that eats it. Then I got my hair done (it’s been over a year since I did that last) and then I stopped and got myself Chipolte for dinner. It’s about time I did something for me.
I don’t shop at sporting good stores. I don’t have a need to. But tonight as we were running around getting stuff for my dad’s travel tomorrow to Flordia (he needed a sleeping bag) I walked it to one. And what did I find? To me the stupidest thing I have ever saw.
A turnstile at the entrance! It’s a store not a sporting event or a ride at Disney World.
Even though I don’t live in Florida and don’t have travel plans there anytime soon, I am watching Irma pretty close. My dad works for the local utilities company and he is the supervisor heading down with a group to help after the storm moves through. My cousin and his girlfriend live in St. Petersburg. They are downtown and not on the beach but still close. And I have a friend who is at Disney World right now with her daughter, son in law, and two grandkids.
I am not a huge fan of Cracker Barrel to begin with but they went even further down on my list today.
I saw this on Facebook today and couldn’t wait to try it. So we went to Cracker Barrel tonight for dinner. Well ours is one of the ones that does not have it. Well to say I was not happy was an under statement. It will be a while before I go back to Cracker Barrel especially that one.
My Outer Banks vacation is a month and a half away. Is it too early to start packing my bags? Because I am seriously thinking about it. I need a relaxing vacation so bad. My Disney vacation was great don’t get me wrong, and I lost touch of reality while I was there, but all that walking and timing is not really relaxing. Part of it’s me, I try to jam too much in, but I just love it there so much. I can’t wait to crowl up on a couch, bed, or chair and lose myself in a book or two.
I actually didn’t do too bad with this. I ended up buying a few things but I was not getting boxes/packages everyday. I think I am going to make September and October no buying books months. I have so many unread books at home and on my kindle. I think it’s time to give them some focus. I’m really liking these mini challenges for myself. I will keep you posted.
As I was driving home this afternoon listing to music on my iPod, singing along with all the Disney songs, it dawned on me the people driving next to me have to think I’m crazy. I can really get into my Disney songs. Singing at the top of my lungs and doing hand gesters when stopped at a light. Thirty-three years old and still a child at heart.
