Maybe next week.
Today was junk store shopping -- we found two amazing pieces of furniture.
Now I'm sore and tired and really weepy (and swollen) and having net issues.

The whole process was amazing and I can't wait to make more.
Now I'm on the sofa, writing and watching the X-Files.
Tomorrow I get to have training, yoga, and lunch with one of my best friends. :D

I'm over it now. I just needed to breathe.
We decided this last week to turn the condo into a studio space. It's a little scary, weirdly enough, and a lot strange, because somehow the condo is like a blank space, but exciting. Also intimidating, because now we have to produce things in it and somehow the...largeness of the space makes me feel like there's pressure. *grins* Or maybe I'm still just moody.
Hell, it'll be so cool -- just having cutting areas and the big yard for the pups. And the washer and dryer with an area for the dyeing agents. And we found an amazing storage piece for yarn and we'll be able to have a real dining room here at the house. Oh, and we're going to get a pool table. And the light is fabulous. Oh, and there's room to have the pottery wheel and the kiln and my new loom. And a place to dry hand dyed yarn/cloth. And a design wall. We're planning on spending Thursdays and Saturdays over there in our studio.
My week coming up is a busy one -- a goddess making class tomorrow, lunch with a good friend Monday, exterminators Tuesday, tarot meeting Thursday, tattoo Friday, craft night Sunday. Add two hours of training, two hours of yoga, two hours of zumba, three and a half of dog walking, work, cooking, writing, learning the new royalty software, plotting the new series for publisher 2 and plotting something to tempt publisher 3, packing up the craft room, working on the studio...Busy, busy.
Happy. Don't get me wrong, I love busy.
I just can't look at the to do list head on.

There were balloons and flowers, yummy food, laughter, hugs. I'm blessed.
I did overdo a little bit and tonight I'm tired and congested and a little weepy.
My daughter should have been there.

So, I tried something new today – dosas. They’re a rice-based crepe with Indian fillings. I had potato and onion in mine. OMG, yummy. I’m trying hard to be brave with food and try new stuff. Indian food has never been my thing, but it’s getting easier to try things.
I’m feeling better today – shaky and still sick, but better. My birthday party is Friday (that’s what I wanted for my birthday, a party. It’s so neat to see people, get hugs, etc., I can’t wait) and I want to be better for it. I tried to do a little light dancing with Lorna – it just didn’t work. This is crazy unfair.
Saturday is farmer’s market day – it’s supposed to be rainy and chilly and I don’t want to get sicker. Is that an old wives’ tale? Getting wet and sicker? Anyway, I still have to go. Grins I need local organic meat. (And I have to run by the Whole Foods and buy pepperonis and breakfast sausage. Oh, and maybe a piece of raw cheesecake and some of those glazed pecans and…)
So, also feeling incredibly smart, as I realized that I could switch back to the old editor in Blogger’s setting and fix the non-posting issue.
Go team Shawn!
Now, it’s time to go read on “Let Me In.” So far? Rocking good book.

Everyone who knows me dreads these words, I think. It always means a new direction. It always means more work.
Sometimes it means disaster.
Sometimes it means magic.
I pulled it today on a very good friend.
She reacted well. *grins*
Especially since it was the first time I pulled it. ;-)

Besides that, it's not been a bad day. Went to Georgetown and met the exterminator. Went to the fabric store and got a few odds and ends to experiment with cloth paper making. Bought dog food. Ate fish sticks.
I'm a little bummed out about my birthday this weekend. Of course, to be totally fair, I'm sick and PMSing, so that's *probably* the deal, huh?
Tomorrow? I have a meeting at ten and I'm supposed to go to Zumba, but I don't know. Things in my chest are moving from congested to hurty. I might do something easier. We'll see.

I've lost the 5 'holiday' pounds, which is nice, but I'm flabby and out of shape. This next week starts exercising back up again, so I'm hoping for no injury and some good cardio. That's trainer and yoga tomorrow. Zumba Tuesday. Trainer and yoga Wednesday. Flow yoga Thursday. Zumba Friday. Then 2 days off.
I've got my to do list for today done, I'm on the sofa with my UT blanket and my crocheting and my basset. (I'm crocheting a pair of slippers, my rainbow ones bit the dust). Lorna's making enchiladas and I have pink socks on.
Life's not bad.

So, resolutions for the year.
1. A fruit or veggie with every meal.
2. Update this blog daily and truthfully -- If you don't want to hear my personal crap, now would be the time to bail. But I want to let myself be honest about my feelings, my heart.
3. Find the balance between exercise and injury.
4. Read 100 books that aren't for work (I made 88 in 2010).
Think I can do it?
I hope I can.
