Just shelled out $550 to fix my sons car, in the middle of a divorce, looking at going back to school at 48...

But here's my happy, a good cup of drip coffee, 75° and I found the cutest dress on sale for $5. Life's little things bring me the biggest joys. Happy Monday everyone ❤❤❤

That's what I loved about Seattle, in Texas every corner has a tire shop or a convenience store. In Seattle all you have to do is turn and point and you'll find a quaint little coffee shop that manages to stay in business in the home of Starbucks!


It's the law you HAVE to drink starbucks in Washington state, right?

@pepperjones I had a co-worker here in NC that was born and raised in WA ... wouldn't drink anything local, and had his coffee beans shipped in from someplace in Seattle. Damn, it was good stuff. Every time he made a pot of his special coffee, it disappeared quickly if he left his pot unattended.


It's the little things, absolutely.

Sometimes the simplest pleasures in life are the best! Show us the dress!!


Yay! Happy monday! Also going back to school could be great, continuing education is a wonderful thing.


This is a little off subject but did you ever find your iron or did you go buy a new one?

@pepperjones So you have not found your old one yet? I guess that I did not win the bet! smile009.gif

@pepperjones I have an idea. Go buy another one and it will show up!


that coffee becomes you

I got an industry specific degree at 48, and a Master's at 53, while teaching full time, running a consulting business, serving on a school board and having to run a reelection campaign at the same time. For you, it will be a piece of cake because you got a cute dress for $5! I never had that..... smile001.gif. Hang in there, mom, you will never regret doing those things for your kids.

Sometimes it is all you have, and sometimes it might be enough. ?

Hey Happy Monday to you, that was a very nice thing you did for your son, hope its a good week for you

@pepperjones oh ya for sure car repairs usually arent ever cheap. Your an awesome Mom Pepper


I am dying to see the dress!

@pepperjones I don't blame you.
Have a great evening.

I'd like to see it too! Nothing like a new dress to make my day better


Do it! Go back to school!

It was the best thing I'd ever done for myself ... in my 40s.

@pepperjones You go girl!

@rogeralyn I've already graduated, with a BS in Mass Communications and Marketing. It helped me advance to better positions in my desired field of Marketing. I had experience before I went back, but without a degree I was relagated to working for idiots who looked down on me. Now I have the confidence to go for much better positions, and I love the job I have now.
