Little things make me happy...
My Matilda Jane dress arrived this week.
I also found out that Hoffman Distributing will be reprinting some of the Prairie Schooler Patterns!! I was happy to hear this as there are some patterns I missed along the way! I checked out some of them on EBAY but they were too pricy for me. Thanks Hoffman ..all of us Prairie Schooler stitchers applaud you!
The sad in my title refers to the fact that my FitBit died yesterday. I took it to the store where I purchased it so see if it could be "fixed". And apparently they only last about a year. Mine lasted 16 months. I have to say I was disappointed that it did not last longer than that. So now I am going to try the Garmin Vivofit. It is not as expensive as the Fit Bit but I do not need all the bells and whistles the FitBit offers. I just want to know how many steps I walk each day. And before anyone comments that my phone will track my steps, I know that but I do not carry my phone with me all the time so that will not work. A pedometer is too easily lost so I am sold on one I can wear on my arm. I really have come to rely on my FitBit to keep me on track with my exercise and I am afraid that without it, I will turn into a slacker.
Margaret and I are on our own today. We will go to the grocery store, do some crafts and pack her bag to go home tomorrow. We will drop her off on our way home from the play. It has been a fun week and Elliott is planning that he gets to come NEXT TIME!
