Almost MIA

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I have to admit I haven't been tracking my food and exercise for a while now. Is it OK as long as I was too busy?? I still try to log on and skim the friend feed. In March my sewing machine really did die, and I got myself a new Phaff about a week later. I have only sewn a couple times on it. I was working on 7 "Britches for Boys" and 22 "Little Dresses for Africa" I still have the ties on three dresses to finish, and they can be mailed off. I'm trying to use up some of my stash for this volunteer project. April was busy with a bump in the dark black eye, a broken big toe I caught on the vacuum cord when I was cleaning, which STILL hurts, and another bump on the forehead when a blind fell and hit me. UGH! Just wanted someone to put me in a padded room! LOL We spent a vacation in Phoenix, where I was bored, so I painted 3 rooms and a hall way for my stepdaughter/family. We babysat for the baby, too. The day before we left for vacation, I bought a rental house. For three weeks I have been "flipping" it. I painted all the rooms, and did a few fix-it projects, and some cleaning. Got new appliances installed a couple days ago. My renter is starting to move things in today. Whew! In the last couple weeks I have tilled and planted all my garden, put down about 25 bags of mulch, and planted all my pots and other garden projects. We are supposed to be having a garage sale with the city wide ones--this next Friday and Saturday. Half the garage is cleaned up, but no tables set up yet with "stuff". A step daughter/fiance arrived to visit a couple days ago. The day before they leave(next week), more of my Hubby's relatives are coming in for 4 days. We have 3 weddings to go to the first 2 weekends of June. Then I finally get a week break and my daughter is visiting with her 2 kids. I'm anxious to see them, because we don't get together too often. I forgot to mention, in April I had a health scare, also. My blood tests showed a CPK level of 1782. Normal is 45-140. Lots of blood tests, but I guess I'm going to live. LOL (Just never take a supplement that has alfalfa in it---GI Pro health--- with cholesterol statins) So-- You see why I haven't had time to comment much, but I am still here, just working those uncounted calories off as I go. Keep sparking!

    I swear, just reading about all you do makes me tired. emoticon All that busyness probably keeps you from eating.

    Glad your health scare was figured out, but you really do need to wear bumpers all over your body to prevent all those mishaps. Hope everything healed as it should.

    How nice of you to be making all those charity donations, and a great way to use up your stash. I'm sure you're enjoying that Phaff. I've always heard great things about them. I got a Brother Project Runway model last year and I'm loving it. It's like a space-age machine compared to my old Singer.

    Enjoy all your company and socializing.

    Busy hands can't hold food to eat! Keep up the good work.
