I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It is real hot here. We had a great day at the store yesterday. The best we've had in about 7 or 8 years. I think it is because people are staying in town and not going to Huntsville to restaurants and bars. Plus, there are a few convenience stores that have sold to non-Americans. In our town, you have to be an American citizen to get a license to sell alcoholic beverages. That has helped a lot with the beer sales.
I finally got everything back in the closet. I have 2 more loads of clothes to wash and I will be finished. What is taking so long is the fact that I don't dry wearing clothes in the dryer and the only place I have to dry them is on the shower rod. I can only hang so many on there at a time and it takes a good 24 hours for them to dry.
I have to go to a training class for work today. It is about 40 miles away in Huntsville. But, I get paid time and a half plus mileage. While I'm there, I'm going to The Pink Pelican to their 2 for $75 Lilly polo sale. They emailed me a coupon. I thought I would buy two different colors and let my sister pick the color that she wants. They also ordered a pair of Stephen Bonanno sandals for me about 6 weeks ago and they are still not in. Maybe they came yesterday. (I doubt it)
As I've said in the past couple of weeks, I've been on Phase I of South Beach. I weighed this morning and I have lost 4 pounds. Only 11 more to go. I'm going to stay on Phase I for a couple of more weeks and see what happens. I know I won't lose 4 more, but maybe I'll lose about 2. I'm going to try not to break my arm patting myself on the back. I have struggled with my weight my entire adult life. I'm not that overweight, but my father's family are all small, thin people and I have always been made to feel like the beached whale. His stepmother had anorexia. She always told me not to get too thin (like that was a problem) or I'd end up like her, but she would always make disparaging remarks about "fleshy" people. Of course, I was one of those "fleshy" people.
