I've started cleaning again which feels good.

Last night I don't know how I did it, but I sat through nearly all of Dirty Love. I just couldn't watch the last 30 minutes. The best part of the movie was Kathy Griffin as the fortune teller. And she was seen in the first 10 minutes? Today we saw Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man. Some of the performances were very good and so were the stories with Leonard Cohen. After the second or third song I drifted in and out of sleep for the rest of the movie.

This afternoon we went clothes shopping at Nordstrom's. For the first 15 - 20 minutes I had an inner monologue regarding the prices and what my husband could possibly be thinking. He pointed out later he gave me warning; he'd mentioned he wanted to go shopping at Nordstrom's or Brooks Brothers for clothes for his trip. I had focused on the Brooks Brothers part. :) We left with one shirt. I was rooting for a suede washable jacket but when he tried it on there wasn't the same "oomph" factor that it had on the hanger. The sleeves were a little long and something just wasn't right about it. Maybe when he comes back from Toronto he'll go back for the pants he wanted. He was afraid they wouldn't have time to hem them before he left and he didn't really want to make another trip out to Easton Mall. I nearly fainted when I bought my new purse a few months back and it was $110 or $125. He talked me into it and I'm glad he did. I love my purse and use it just about everyday. Tomorrow we'll probably go shopping for more clothes for him.

When he and I went to Toronto together we'd go shopping before we went. Now it's just him who gets the goodies. I get a few things before my Maryland trip each year. Last year I got to miss out on that shopping trip since I didn't go out of town.

Today is one of those days where I just feel happy and blessed. Sure, there are things that could improve in my life but they will happen when it's right. Leaving my old job was just the beginning.
