I forget how many days they say it takes to make something a habit (or get out of a habit). It is 21? That seams to stick in my mind. Here we are 42 days into it and I can honestly say I think each week it gets a bit easier. A wrench could have been thrown into the whole mix last week though. I had (have) fallen into that winter blues melancholy, missing my husband because he's working 70 hours a week melancholy, wondering what is going to happen to all of us at work melancholy. Bleh. And that's when I like to shop. But I didn't. I hibernated. Which is why you didn't hear from me much last week. I am not completely out of it, but it is sunny today and I plan to take a walk during lunch.
I went to Target on Saturday and I went with a list.
- baby gift for a friend who is due this week,
- two toilet seats (seriously.),
- makeup – I am trying out drugstore foundation instead of Bare Escentuals to save money
- an over-the-door shoe organizer – I have whittled my shoe collection down to a manageable amount but our closets still suck and my shoes are found scattered about the bedroom.
- some other toiletries
- cereal and milk
I stuck to the list except for the Orla Kiely brown pear mug that I bought to keep at the office. ;) I spent the rest of my Saturday doing a year's worth of filing in the boy's office (instead of shopping). Not fun. But it feels great to have it done and have everything organized in one place.
