our weekend...

yesterday the wind was something and the storms were popping up all around us...
but all the bad ones missed us...

this was forming after it went past us...
it was sucking in clouds from all directions and I know its the storm that hit over in Indiana...

and while that was going on, we were clearing here...

and several times it rained with the sun shining...
but we got through it without a problem...
praying for those who lost everything yesterday...

Saturday, was our trip to Mattoon and the eye doctor...
DH has been going to the Eye Express there for years...
but I had had my eyes checked since I was 16...
so, in between getting our eyes checked and picking up the glasses...
which wasn't even close to an hour...
we had a lot of time to kill...
Goodwill first stop...
and this afghan...
5 bucks...

Dollar Tree finds...

Goodwill for 49 cents...

this I picked up at the Goodwill in Paris on Thursday when I had the doctor's appointment...

and this was found at the Mattoon Goodwill...

my new glasses...
readers...
didn't want bifocals...
I am so used to looking over my glasses and when I get up, they come off and I lay them on top of the laptop...
if I don't, then I have to look for them...
and it can take hours...

we all picked up some clothes at the Goodwills...
DH has lost a lot of weight this summer and is still losing...
got him some jeans and shirts to wear for work...
Craig got heavy shirts to wear to work..
I got several tops...
ones that are fun and I won't have to worry about the babies snagging with their claws...

stopped by Carson's and saw my bff...
after we picked up our glasses, we grabbed lunch and came home...
over did it major...
so taking another day today to rest up from all of that before the rest of this week happens...
should get a call from my doctor's nurse tomorrow to see where we go from here...
if they do anything...
then it will be planning Thanksgiving dinner and all that fun stuff...
still working on the toy drive...
and my guys committed themselves to moving the living room around next weekend...
switching two pieces of furniture out from each room...
kitchen and living room and the moving them all around, too...
so I am getting 2 done for the price of one...

so there you go...
all caught up now....
need to blog hop to find our what you have been doing...
;)

you were busy! I guess u went to Dollar Tree in Mattoon, but can't wait for you to check out the new Charleston one! I am glad you got to see Rebecca, hope she is doing well. How is the new GW in Mattoon? Have not had a chance to stop there yet. Glad everyone at home is safe without too much damage.

Tete, glad you and your family are safe. It's so sad the damage from the tornadoes. It will be nice that you have some new glasses. We had a pretty day but the wind was strong. Take care, get the rest you need. xoxo,Susie
