Weekly Happenings

This week has been random.

Like very random. I've had some sucky things going on and also some really amazing things too. For sure a week of highs and lows and not boring.

Saturday I was reminded that I am no longer a spring chicken. I moved all the furniture and cleaned underneath it all. I started having cramping in my hip not long afte I finished. The pain traveled to my back and spread down my leg. It was awful! I made it to Monday and called the doctor first thing that am. He said he believed it was the sciatic nerve. He gave me some meds and I hurried home. Tuesday I went to work but had to leave early. By Wednesday the pain had switched sides and it was my right side that was causing me all the misery. I've called my doctor and haven't gotten a call back. I'm going to continue with the meds and reevaluate things come Monday.

Even with all the pain I've still managed to experience some great things.

Jack and I sat down for a few minutes and did a little St. Patrick's Day art. I've also printed off a cute St. Patty's Day printable. I hope to finish putting out the little bit of the green and gold decor that I own.

I've been working on my New Year's Resolutions and I'm happy that even though it is only February 19, I'm still doing great. 

A woman at work is selling Fitness First products. It is expensive (at least in my mind) but I'm thinking about doing it. It will be difficult but I really want the jumpstart. I'm suppose to get a free sample so I can taste the meal replacement shakes. If I like the taste of the shake, then I'll give it a try for a month. 

I'm still learning to use my Smashbox make-up kit. I tried contouring yesterday morning and it did not go well. I've been watching Youtube videos and reading blogs to learn more. I didn't realize how it REALLY looked until I got outside in the car. The picture above is after lots of blending. Natural light really changes things up. This picture was also taken the morning of my lucky day. 

Why did I call this my lucky day?

I won $700 on scratch off tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!

Y'all I was shocked. That is an understatement. I'm not a huge lottery ticket buyer. I had a $10 winning ticket that I had bought awhile back. I decided to cash it in for another ticket and won $100. I cashed it in and bought my family supper. I still had about $50 left so I stopped in the gas station to fill up. I bought another ticket thinking well it is free money anyways. I hit for $500! On the way home from work yesterday I thought I would press my luck and bought a ticket. I won $200!

Believe me I am having to stop myself from taking off to go shopping.

I am however excited to pay off some debt. I did say that this was the year I was going to pay off debt so what an amazing blessing! 

This weekend is suppose to be beautiful and we plan on taking full advantage! My niece and nephew are spending the day and tomorrow night with us and I'm so excited. I love seeing the amazing relationship between the cousins.

  1. Congrats on your big wins!! That's really exciting and like you said such an unexpected blessing. Love Jack's clover art. We need to get busy and prep for St. Patty's Day. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and start feeling better soon :)

  2. That's awesome! It definitely was your lucky day! Have you tried a chiropractor? I hurt my back doing yard work three years ago this spring and have dealt with daily pain until last fall when I finally saw a chiro. It took several sessions but no more back pain!
