He's Home!

Well, hubby made it home safely to LaGuardia on Saturday morning. I only got lost in downtown Manhattan for about 10 minutes so that wasn't too bad. I'm not brave enough yet to drive in NYC traffic during the actual day, 5:30am is stressful enough for me!

I was supposed to do day 6 of cardio for the week, but it never happened. After a very healthy breakfast of Dunkin Donuts on the way home (yeah, I blew my diet for the day, but isn't everybody allowed one cheat day?) hubs and I went back to sleep until 12:30pm. Then I found out that he needed me to notarize a bunch of things this weekend, and my notary stuff was at work. So, I got to make the 40 minute roundtrip trek to to work on a day off...yuck! But, I made up for it with some shopping on the way home.

First, I stopped by this fabulous fabric store to pick up some fabric to cover the bulletin board I'm making for my craft room. When I see all the gorgeous fabric it makes me drool and wish even more so that I knew how to sew. But, for now, I'll settle for being pretty handy with a staple gun!

Next, it was off to the Home Depot to pick up the paint I need to finish the trim and doors in my craft room. I'm also going to repaint some built-in oak varnished drawers the same color. Has anybody had any luck with painting over varnish? I'm trying to avoid having to strip the varnish. From what I read online, most people are saying that you can clean it with an ammonia and water based cleaner (i.e. Windex) because that "strips" the varnish and then sand it and put a coat of primer on and you should be good to go. Hopefully this works.

Finally, I stopped by the produce store to fill up on the veggies and fruits for the week. I love this store because I can walk away with four bags of groceries stuffed to the max for less than $15! Looks like we'll be trying to fill up on veggies and fruits to keep our grocery budget down.
