    My husband made me order my meds then told me to take a Shopping spree for some quilting stuff. I have really been depressed. I got enough material in three patterns to finish Dustin's quilt. I hit up their scrap sale and FQ's and got a Christmas Tree skirt I am going to make and stuff the poinsettas around the outside. It came with 2 free Christmas stocking too. I got fiber fill for the little animals I am making. My turtle is so cute. I got bags of all kinds of handle and strap, ribbons, lace and rick rack, etc for only 99 cents a bag. I got 4 or 5 of those. I found a medium sized hoop I need for cross-stitching, bought some quilting thread and just picked up some odd and ends I found and thought I needed. I only spent $64.00 I am proud of my newbies. I pay for what I get and I get good deals in stores and on here. Thanks ladies and gentlemen for all your understanding. I have no one here to talk to and I have tovent somewhere.

    Hi,

    I am happy to hear that your hubby ordered your medicines and that you got to go on a shopping spree.

    You deserve it my friend.

    Take care and if you ever need to chat just send me a private message.

    Good for you! One of the best meds for depression is going shopping for fabric and getting good deals!!! Now take your other meds and enjoy your new purchases!!

    And celebrate the treasure you have in your husband! Aren't we lucky when we are blessed with one who takes such good care of us, makes sure we get our medications, and doesn't complain when there are threads everywhere?
    Luv'ya!

    Plans, you have PLANS you can carry out. Wonderful! Between the plans, your meds and the encouragement of your kind, compassionate husband you will move mountains. Keep up the momentum and be as well as you can be.
