Forgot to reset my alarm, so I slept in this morning, and boy do I feel groggy for it. And grumpy. Trying to get rid of the grumpy. I want peace and silence when I first wake up, but when I wake up too late my youngest DD is already awake and she does not know how to do anything silently, lol. At least I have my coffee
I have my therapy appointment today. We did so good last week, didn't overload me but put a whole bunch of dots together and drew some conclusions that had eluded me before. It's what got me to get out my old sewing machine and start sewing instead of waiting till we could afford another one.
I put together another book tote... and I put it together wrong. The outside looks great, the inside looks messy. Again. Now I know what I did wrong, so I can fix it next time, but man do I wish I had done it right this time!! It's a beautiful tote on he outside. Fits my Bible perfectly. I wish the handles were a little longer, but that can be fixed on the next one I make because I'm not giving up. I'll trim up the edges on the inside of this one and it will be okay. The next one I make is going to be for my youngest DD's Bible. She said she'd help me make it since it is for her, a sneaky way to get her into sewing
As far as exercise goes, I took it nice and slow and only did a mile yesterday. Since I got up so late I won't have time this morning, so I'll get it done when I get home. I'm still loving my treadmill. And the possibilities are endless for when I do finally plateau, I can change my speed or incline, or both! I'm hoping that, now that I'm minding my nutrition, I'll start losing the weight once I start working out. Today is my 'fun day' a day when I let myself have, in small portions, things I won't normally let myslef have. In today's case, it is carrot cake. I'm craving Trader Joe's inside out carrot cake. SO GOOD. And I didn't even know I liked carrot cake till I tried these babies. Been craving them ever since. But I never go to Trader Joe's, so the temptation is zero. My friend occasionally brings them over, "for the kids". My kids don't like them, only I do.
In other news my kids are getting restless, first they were sick, now this weather. We haven't been to church nor had our friends over because of said sickness. Yes, they are very restless indeed. And I don't blame them, I would be too. Heck, I am, I'm getting what we call 'house sickness'. Even had that? When you've been indoors for so long you literally feel sick feeling and have to go outside and get some fresh air to feel better. I also get that way if I go too long without eating a fresh veggie. I'll goet so sick feeling. But I'm going to go out today, and have a fresh salad and take Aunt G out with me to talk about sewing (I've got an expert, I may as well pick her brain). The kids will see their friends tomorrow and we'll go to a park or a creek and have fun. As long as it doesn't rain like it is threatening to.
Wish me luck on the scales!!
