Being in pain and not being able to do the things I want to do is taking its toll. So - I actually followed through with one of the things I mentioned on Thursday. I set an alarm and went through some physical therapy exercises this morning. This has become my new mission. As much as I want to make running my mission, I have to get things working again. I had a couple weekends of wallowing and eating junk, but it's time to move on. I am nothing if not stubborn (just ask Cody) and determined.
**Other people use their blogs to give themselves pep talks, right?
Right, so - the weekend:
I managed to get the living room/dining room cleaned, swept, and vacuumed.
I can't say that too much decluttering happened, but I got things to the point that if someone stops by unexpectedly I won't have a panic attack.
My family teases me because I always like to put everything at an angle. Things just feel more open that way. Maybe I'm secretly a feng shui master.
Then there was this project:
I decided to crochet a couple of iPod touch cases for my niece's birthday. Things started off a bit dodgy. There was one that had to be scrapped completely, and I ended up throwing out the pattern to wing it, but it was super-fun. It make me want to crochet cases with googly eyes for all of my belongings.
Have you ever tried to take a selfie with a baby? It goes something like this:
I got up early enough to actually blow dry my hair, put on makeup and pick out grown up clothes. When little man finally started to stir, I picked him up and paused by the mirror to look at his face and he had the biggest smile. I thought "this would be a great picture." Yup, I tried the mirror thing, but that didn't go well, so I thought I'd give it the old arms-length try. These were the best ones.
And, of course, my day was off to a great start because I got a new pair of seasonal socks. Yay!
Happy Monday, all! I hope you have the equivalent to seasonal socks to brighten your day.
