Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Yesterday my BFF and I hit the local thrift shop as she’s lost some weight and needed some new clothes.  For $90 she got a pair of jeans, a bra, 2 shirts and 3 dresses. I on the on the other hand bought a shirt for Diva, a book and Bob Harper’s yoga DVD for less than $19. The DVD was $3!! 🙂 Three dollars!?! I’m very happy with my find. It as on my long list of things to buy somewhere near the bottom as I didn’t want to pay a lot for it.

In other news, Diva has finished her training at a local youth employment center and has been placed at The Gap. She goes in for an interview on Thursday.  Her uniform is black pants and a collared shirt. The shirt I bought at the thrift store was too small but we went back and was able to exchange it for another. Now we need to go over her shoe collection to see if any are acceptable.

Now to get Princess motivated to finish her resume and out applying for jobs.

I have recently discovered “Dexter” the TV series. Yes I know I’m way behind. My cousin recommended it years ago. I’m only on episode 2 but I’m really enjoying it.

On the list of things to do this weekend:

  • library
  • shoe shopping
  • grocery store
  • watch more episodes of Dexter 😉
  • meal plan
  • take Princess to a few stores in the neighbourhood to apply for jobs

  1. Sounds like a fun shopping trip! 🙂 I went to the thrift store last week and found a Dakine bag I loove! Was $5.50! I’ll have to post about it soon! Hope Princess finds a job soon! I’m SO glad Dallas is now working FT. It’s very nice for him to have $$ coming in! lol!

  2. It does sound like a fun trip – and always great to get things you need for a reasonable price! What a big milestone having kids looking for work…fingers-crossed for Princess in the job hunt!

  3. You’ve had a productive week!
