the hub and i have been, well, fighting over our coffee table. that’s so sad, isn’t it? what a waste of a perfectly wonderful marriage. anyway, his coffee table was okay, but didn’t work in our living room. but we didn’t have any money to do anything about it. WELL, i went into world market, there to look for stuff for a friend who is … Continue reading friday.
DENISE! i loved that song so much that i bought a whole cd of her. she rocks!!! love her voice! today is the first day i am feeling the gratification of reducing my schedule. it is truly glorious. if i had decided to work on tuesdays, i would have made under $100 more a week. and it soooo would not have been worth it, compared … Continue reading tuesday.
woke up late. headache. stitches hurt. i should have asked the doctor if i could sing with these stitches on my jaw. i really drop my jaw and open my mouth, like a good singer should do. i feel like i ripped it yesterday in rehearsal. i’m just not ready for monday. i thought i would have time last night to prepare for the week, … Continue reading monday.
yesterday, i attempted to make a bolero jacket, with some kind of devil fabric from hell. my sewing machine literally LAUGHED at me when i asked it to make a nice seam. it sputtered and pulled at the thread, and puked out some sort of goop instead. i don’t blame my machine. it was crap fabric. but now, i have nothing to take to my … Continue reading sunday.
denise, i’m so proud of you. i guess this is SHOUT OUT week on my blog. the comments you wonderful people make are just incredible. i feel inspired when i hear about my longtime friend, jen, having 3 kids, a job, a hub, a house, a cello, and she works out 2 or 3 times a week? i feel like i can do it when … Continue reading friday.

headed to the gym after this. what a difference it makes in my brain. who even cares if i see a difference in my body! i can’t believe what a mood booster AND peace maker it is. i told the hub at dinner last night that i feel like i have more hours in the day, because i have more energy. also, it’s hard to … Continue reading tuesday.
started working out again. finally. it is so hard to start back up again. there’s a constant voice in my head, telling me i’ll just stop again in two weeks, like i always do. it’s so toxic. my number 1 reason for not working out is usually time. i have a lot of time. i just don’t want to use up the time in the … Continue reading monday.
ugh. my head is killing me. i’m trying to learn how to sew and every time i start a new project, the goddesses of sewing laugh in my face and the whole process leaves me with a splitting headache. i have never in my life been so horribly inadequate at something. the patterns give you glossaries and instructions and explanations of every tiny detail ~ … Continue reading sunday.
last day of my glorious week off. sure, i was sick with some weird ailment (so was the hub ~ so i know i’m making it up!) and i have had some strange low this week. but i really did enjoy this week. i worked on the house, started some great projects, finish a few, even! and set some great goals for this coming year. … Continue reading friday.
