So here I sit. It is Monday morning and I have had a very busy weekend!
It was so nice to spend some time with our friends, and to just catch up on everything. Went down to a little old rustic town called Jullian. Jullian was having thier apple day's and there were pie's everywhere! We walked around the shops and I bought nothing! Yes I am excieted about controlling myself and not buying stuff that we really dont need. I must say that it was very cold down there and we did freeze our asses off, but it was worth it.
We also went to the beach. I made our friends walk the beach and do a beach clean up with me. This time we found a fence! How do you loose a fence? All in all we made a good haul nd got a lot of trash off of our beaches!
While on the beach we also found some bones to something. We think they were to a sea turtle, but we dont know for sure. It was fun looking at the bones and tring to put them back together.
While my friends were Diane, was looking at my fridge and reading my pot poster. Yes I have a pot poster on my fridge. It give all the stat's about pot both good and bad. Anyway, Diane said to me "do you believe in the healing power of herbs?" Without missing a beat I said "both legal and illegal"
That sparked a huge conversation about my female plumbing. Diane had the same problem that I have except they found her's at stage 3. Before you know it we are all in car and heading to the hippy store to get me a regiment of herbs. This is the best I have felt.
I also have a new perspective. I have the right to be scared and I have the right to bitch, but I also have the right to say "mountain get out of my way." And that is what I have chosen to do. I am still going to seek medical treatment, but I now taking a front row seat on my treatment. Like everything else in my life, I am going to do it my way!
Today I need to get this house put back together, but that is fine. I so enjoyed spending the weekend with some dear friends.
****** zero spending*****
I am still on my zero spending diet and here are some up dates. I bought nothing while we were in Jullian. I saw a lot of neat stuff, but decided that I really did not "need" them. While at the chocolate shop in Jullian I so wanted a chocolate covered pretzel. I looked all over the store for Rusty so that I could get some money from him, but then I saw some samples. The samples were free, so I ate them instead.
The beach was free. we took down our own stuff and I use grocery sacks to do the beach clean up. Finding the remains of an animal was very cheap...free....entertainment for me.
I am going to go to the store this week and do a major shopping trip. This will really give me an idea of how well my zero spending is going. If we run out of something then, we will do with out it!
I showed my friends the article that I read and they are now going to try it. So we will keep each other accountable.
