I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m sorry about my lack of posting lately, and I hope I still have some readers left. It’s the summer and with Kidlet home all day it’s hard to find the time to write a post and get everything that a full time working mom needs to get done. But I’m still alive and still very much kicking. 

I finally finished off my Princess Leia belt and it looks amazing. I found some boots earlier this week at a thrift store that I think will be perfect so I just need to make some boots covers for those. Which will be another first for me.  

I’m still training for my race in September. Which I’m not sticking to a training plan per say more running as much as I can when I can. The scales like me depending on how much runnin I do and if I’m sticking to eating right, which is dependent on the week. I’m finally figuring out that 6 miles a day is my magic number and if I can run that 5 days a week and stick to my healthy eating, or at least stick to my calories then I tend to lose weight. So it’s really all down to me these days. 

Kidlet has a birthday which is fast approaching. I may try and write a post about that if I get the time, I spent Tuesday morning fixing kidlet’s my little ponies. The hair was all tangled. Kidlet inherited some of the ponies that I upset to play with as a child. We also managed to find some at the thrift store  the other day for really cheap so we got them. 

I have to tell you about my visit to the thrift store. Amazing. I neede to get shoes to go this dress that I was planning on wearing to a very important event. I’ll tell you about that soon. And I wanted to try and find boots for my Princess Leia. I also had heard that thrift store although they can be hit and miss are great places to find old retro video games, which as my regular readers know I’m a geek and i collect old video games. So I went to the local store. Not only did I find amazing shoes for my dress for $4 I got boots for $6 , two my little ponies for the kid and some butterfly wings, an old video game worth $12 for only $5 and the first Harry Potter book for only $1:50. I have to say I’m not in love with thrift stores and may need to make regular trips from now on. 

So I’ll have to writhe a post a few posts to follow up this one. Like how it fix my little ponies and the big day that happened to week. I’m also trying to find time to get my GED done as well.
