Seems like there's lots of trouble floating in the air

So I'll stay down here and keep working through it. Hopefully it'll miss me.

Busy day, but good.

Dealing with an irritating work problem. Crafted. Visited. Watched the academy awards (I have no real opinions).

La la la.

Tired now.

Went back to yoga today

Man, my shoulder is sore, but better, all at the same time.

Weird, huh?

Retail therapy

Ice cream maker. New nightgown. Clearance books. Yummy tofu.

Good day today -- knitting, Top Chef, and pool.

Oh, and chicken sausages.

I approve.

Man, this morning was depressing

I've lost about 80% of my aloe vera, both my lime trees, my rose agave, my brain cactus.

Fuck a doodle do.

went back to Zumba today

Wow. That was hard.

So far I've lost 6 1/2 lbs in 2 weeks, my sugars are almost back to normal, and I'm back in my size medium pants.

Now, back to the real, solid exercise. I did spinning last week. This week I'm shooting for zumba, yoga, spinning, and yard work.

Maybe. ;-)

Busy day

The problem with working on Sundays is that it's Sunday.

It feels like everyone else is off. ;-)

I've got a shitload to do today, plus a grocery shop, walking the dogs, and running to the studio to take out the garbage.


Of course, yesterday was a day off. ;-)

Rolls shoulders

Been a pretty good day, really. I don't have anything to complain about. I'm looking forward to tomorrow, though -- yoga, pedicure, hours of studio time, then home for relaxing with Larry.

I like taking Thursdays and Saturdays off.

Dreamed about Manda last night, though. I hate that. I always have the worst headache after that (or sleeping with a headache makes me dream of Manda, whatever).


*note to self -- tell editors I'm out of town weekend after next so books have to be early

Spent the day at the studio, piecing a quilt

Had a good day. I'm going to work up to spending Monday, Thursday, and Saturday over there by April.


I am.

I can do this.

I need a cup of coffee

Maybe a pot of coffee.

Easter dresses

Went yesterday and bought material for 3 little girl Easter dresses. One will be purple and green (Jade), one is purple and white (Merci), one is blue and white (Kenzi). Pinafores. There are going to be pinafores and petticoats. Fabric roses. Satin. Eyelet. Sashes. (I love making little girl clothes.)

No pink.

*purses lips*

I bought material for a new summer dress for me, too, but it was red.

In fact, I didn't buy *any* pink fabric...

Had a lovely weekend

Saw Barbara and the rest of the Simpsons. Had a lovely birthday party with gluten free strawberry shortcake. Then dinner with Daddy, cards with Daddy and Tiff, then birthday presents for Miss Merci.

The drive home was crappy, but it's 35 -- it only comes in crappy. :D

Going to Greenville to see Barbara and Daddy

I'm hoping for a safe drive, a fun party, and good visiting. :D

sitting on the sofa

It feels weird to sit on the couch at night, write and crochet and watch TV. Not bad at all, just weird. Like maybe I'm forgetting to do something important.

Of course, here I am, in my corner, with my coffee, my dogs, my UT blankie (that my mommy made for me), and my laptop, watching CSI and writing.

I may even crochet something.

wow...'s cold out there.

Like whoa.



Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Dude, I've been a font of negativity lately!


You know, really, what do I have to seriously bitch about? All my basic needs are met. I'm the most married person alive. I have an amazing studio. I have good dogs. Coffee is plentiful and I have a coffee pot I love almost as much as I love my red sectional (okay, maybe more... don't tell the couch). Hell, I have Tim McGraw tickets (spends a long moment in basking in the upcoming hat-act glory there). George Strait is singing on my iTunes. I'm going to go see my daddy this weekend.

I'm ready for the spring, I admit. I want to get outside and potter around and plant things. I want to see what's survived the winter. I want some sunshine. (fyi, Jan and Dean are singing now...)

*rolls shoulders*


New plan. New energy. New hope.




Or not.

This week sucked.

I keep showing myself the good parts, but you know what? It really sucked.

So, maybe I'll wallow in the suck for an hour and then move on.

Saturday, February 5, 2011


like in my soul.

I have to do something crappy tomorrow and I don't want to. I sucks, because I know I have to, but still.


I hate disappointing people.
