I only worked an extra hour a day this week, but it has tired me out. I am working 9-5 next week and plan on taking extra hours if they end up offering them, just to try and catch back up on everything and get ahead again. I got my GST rebate so that’s good. Something extra to help to my next pay which will be a full one with extra hours on it thank god!
I went to Value Village last night with Erin and actually managed to find something for once. I bought 7 tops for work for $50.00, a little more then $7 a top. They were between $2.99 and $9.99 each. I never find anything there so I was really happy about that. I have s little slide show of the tops below. Sorry about the lighting and quality of the pictures, the lighting in our bedroom is not that great and I was standing on the edge of the bed, hard to keep still.
I also found an idea for a Halloween costume I love. I just don’t know #1 if I can pull it off and #2 if I would be allowed to wear it to work. I am pretty sure that it would be okay but not 100% sure, so I am going to have to find out what limitations and rules to our costume contest. In 3 years I have never dressed up and participated but this year I really want to. The idea is a Flapper costume similar to this one. I love the 20’s and 30’s. I’m just not sure if the large will fit or if it will look okay on me.
Tomorrow I am going to the Value Village over in Dartmouth as the one here did not have it in large only small, which I definitely would not fit in and then we are going to the Weekend Market again to look around. I am hoping that if the costume does not fit that maybe I can get some other ideas somewhere. Plus I want to see what they have over there.
Sunday Erin and Kristy (my boyfriends sister) and I are going to Mahone Bay for the Scarecrow and Antiques festival as well as the lighting of the pumpkin path. Which is really neat. It’s a path with carved pumpkins up both sides of it, they are all carved differently. I have heard it is really something else to see. Erin went a few years ago and had some really great pictures. So my camera is definitely coming with me and so are extra batteries. I need to get a lense cleaning kit for it first though cause I noticed some finger prints on it.
So all in all it’s going to be a busy weekend. I expect to be able to sleep in both days though. So I am looking forward to that.
