I feel good, nananaana,
like you know that I would

I feel fine.... because I just bought two bottles of wine. And some tequila and tangerine vodka, and I've made myself a cocktail and I'm feeling ah, so pleasant. Maybe there is something this alcohol consumption theory. My therapist advised against taking up cocktails, but I just feel like I'm needing something to take the edge off in the early evening, when the Boy's meds are wearing off and he's bouncing off the walls.

He's watching the second DVD of the British The Office series. I've never heard him laugh more than when watching this show. It's funny how he just 'gets' it.

The new 39 cent stamps are incredibly ugly so far. I can barely bring myself to put one on an envelope. The Post Office really needs to come up with new designs before they announce the raise in cost.

There are NO winter jackets left in any stores. The Boy has outgrown his from last year and refuses to wear it. It's still megacold outside and he'll only wear a sweatshirt. I'd prefer that he wore a coat. But there are none. Because it's March, and somewhere, people must be buying spring clothing.

I'm down 47 lbs now, and nothing fits me anymore, but I can't get new clothes. I want to to wait until the weather warms up, just to see what still fits of my summer clothes. I'm assuming that most of the summer stuff, shorts with elastic waists, will be fine, so I can wait quite a while before I have to buy more clothing, and by then, who knows what size I'll be wearing. Anyone's guess.

I've got an interesting job possibility coming up with involves my old career and blogging. I'm hoping it works out as I like the whole opportunity and have an idea it would be very helpful to my blogging as well.

Gonna spend the weekend marking clothing and packing for the Girl's winter camping trip. I think we've got everything we need now, although she wants to take one last shopping trip this weekend with her friend. She's so psyched to go on this trip. She's been looking forward to it for years.

HI, I've been trying unsuccessfully to leave a comment and I think you may have been posting this new entry, that's why. Amyway, I buy my stamps online--there are more choices there.

I smell like a distillery, too. Michele sent me.

Winter is nearly over.. just get The Boy to put on two sweatshirts, save on the expense of a winter jacket.

A very Scottish perspective, I know... sorry.

I was in Kittery today. Great deals and lots of winter coats and such on clearance.

I think I live nearby...save some of the wine for me!

Michele sent me again tonight.

Hey! Thanks for visiting today! I say drink up. No harm in a drink (or two) to celebrate the end of the day.

I have the complete opposite problem from you. I live in AZ. There are NO summer clothes here and it is 80 degrees plus...

Cocktails! Cocktails! Who mentioned cocktails?

My favourite cocktail is a cosmopolitan, but I love gin & tonic with slice of lime.

Here's cheers to you! Happy weekend.

Michele sent me! :)

First - Congrats on the weight loss! Wow, I admire that and so need to do it myself.

Second - all I see at the stores are shorts and swim suits. did you check online? In the past we've gotten some really good deals on winter stuff from various outdoor-like web sites. Try Campor.com or something like LL Bean.

Here from Michele to offiaclly comment although I ran through silently earlier.

Here from Michele.
I thought someone said there were new stamps with children's literature characters on them. I haven't seen them myself but they sound very cute.
