Getting Off The Couch!

Okay, I have had my one whole week off and I have lived the majority of that week on this couch and it is finally time to get back to normal life! So farewell good couch, you have served me well! Of course, I am writing this as I have parked myself right back on it. Seriously though, I have spent some serious time here this past week, I slept here, ate here, watched alot of mindless TV here, read an equally mindless novel here, had my devotions here, surfed the web here, laid sick and hurting here and healed here.

I am ready to get back to normal life again. Ready for my job .... hmmm I hope so!

Yesterday I had grown so stir crazy that I talked my husband into taking me out on an adventure. He took me to Scottsboro - to Unclaimed Baggage (found a cute purse and pair of Danskin workout pants - Hubs got himself a new tennis racket) and for lunch at the Blue Willow Restaurant - I felt like I was having a girls outing only without the girls - G was a great substitute though. I wanted to prowl through the other antique and thrift stores while there, but one time around UB was enough to wear me out. Our meal was very disappointing, but the house the restaurant was in was very quaint and the eclectic looking yard and outdoor eating area was fun to walk through. G swears he will make me a hanging bed for our back yard too - I told him to make sure he surrounded it with a screened in back porch!

Til Later, V

I'm so glad you are feeling better. Isn't Unclaimed Baggage fun! The Blue Willow is such a unique place, they have vinegar pie there. It sounds odd but it is quite good.

Thankful you are feeling better and getting back to normal.
