Rundown of the Week, and Incoming/Outgoing from the last 2 weeks

I honestly can't believe that it's already Friday! This week has flown by because we've had so much to do. . . I guess that's some-what of a good thing, except that I'm still slightly worn out, ha ha.

Anyway, it's that time of year where the weather is getting warmer and it was time to switch out my clothes. As most of you know, the hubby and I are currently renting a room from my parents while we save up money and try to find something we can afford. So that means that we have stuff stored all over the place, our closet is scary. So, most of my clothes are in space bags, and I switch them out for the seasons, which here are only winter and summer. So I tackled that this week, 2 huge garbage bags of clothes went to goodwill and another went into the trash. We also cleaned the room, which gets cluttered after about a week due to lack of space. I also boxed up three more boxes of books to take to my storage unit. And we were going through stuff that had been stored, it was a lot of time consuming little things that needed to be done, along with about 6 or 7 loads of laundry. . . I lost count.

Anyway, onto mail. I'm behind on posting my outgoing letter from last week, so I already have the reply to post too, oops :)

Outgoing to Shannah (sent last week)

I used one of my new flipflop envelope seals :)

Okay, blogger is being difficult all of a sudden and my incoming keeps going to the top of the post. . . I wish blogger would be more user friendly!

Yay! Got it to work! Incoming below. . . lol.

Shannah's wonderful reply. I love the Snoopy notecard she used! And thank you so much for the friend notecard and airmail stickers, can't wait to use them!

A first letter from my new pal Melissa. I loved everything about her letter, so creative!  And she sent me two great crockpot recipes, can't wait to try them!

So, there you have it. I now have 3 replies that need to get written, I'll probably do that on Sunday when I'll have the house to myself and some quiet time without interruptions :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!



  1. Yayy! You got my letter! :)

    Oh, and I found a different way to do the package pals sorting. I'm going to let my sister pair everybody up for me and she will use my email to send everybody their partner. Then delete the emails. That way I wont know a thing and there's no way I can find out!

    1. Oh, that is a really good idea! How many people have you gotten to sign up so far?

  2. Ugh - I hate cleaning closets - I don't have a lot of clothes so I don't have to take care of my side and husband is great about his side but the girls - about twice a year we need to go through and try stuff on and decide what is too small or too worn out and rotate the seasons and it is pure, pure torture for all of us. Ugh!!

    We are in San Diego! We arrived yesterday. We are hanging at Tim's parents until Thursday when we take off for Sequoia and then Lake Tahoe.

    So I am catching up on all the media stuff that I've neglected all week while wildly trying to get ready for this trip. :)
