I took my son and husband to the ball game tonight and hoped to have a relaxing time when they were out. I went to the bookstore to buy a new journal. I like to write in a paper journal pretty often. They're expensive, but it takes me 4-10 months to go through one. I ran out three months ago and just had a stack of paper in the back of my old journal and I was really sick of that. My private writing is sacred and I value that outlet. When my son can read I'll have to lock it up and will need a special locked box for it, I think, but that isn't til at least the next one.
(Ok, gals, time to start doing the Kegels again.. two sets of 15. Go!)
I wanted a haircut tonight, but the hairdressers I wanted to go to had moved and were not in the same place as the bookstore like it used to be. I found them and they couldn't take me as a walk-in tonight, so I have an appointment tomorrow evening. I'm open to idea for haircut styles. I think it will be shoulder length with layers as that's what the hairstylist who will be doing it suggested. Are layers a bad idea for me? I don't know. I think you have to keep it up every 6 weeks or so. Hrm. But my hair has virtually no style -just long, straight, limp, all one length right now. I have been wanting to get it cut for a few weeks now as it's just a bit too long and uncomfortable to sleep on and sticks to me and gets caught under my arms. It's just time for a cut.
I bought some salmon for dinner and more dark chocolate and then realized my credit card was missing. I must have paid for the journal with the wrong one. Yup. Used my Paypal for the groceries and went back to void original payment for the journal and pay with cash (which is my son's money for a toy from his savings acct.) Hm. I have not found the right debit/credit card even where I thought it was at home, so that is a problem. I will find it!! Or I will have to go cancel it and get a new one tomorrow.
Took a walk with the dog just at sunset and was attacked by mosquitoes. Also got text messages every thirty seconds from my DH as the game was ending, so that was stressful. I was determined to finish my walk before I came to get them and I did. Well, the endorphins and serotonin and other good chemicals that you get from exercise did help me as I was able to be calm on the drive to get them.. And, my DH and son had a great time at the game!
BUT, I can't do that again. I would have to be there before the game is over as I can't see well after dark when headlights are coming at me and if you go after it lets out then you get a steady stream of cars coming at you as you head back to the park. UGH! I have a visual problem called trefoil, I think, that makes star patterns around lights in the dark and it's become more pronounced. It's supposed to be very minor, but it's so bad I can't drive safely after dark much. I need to get back to the eye doctor and see what can be done. I think maybe they can do something with glasses to help or it may not be as bad with glasses instead of contacts.
So the salmon was going to be for dinner, but I was super hungry when we got home so I had the last of the Terrific Turkey Burgers I'd made last night and had that with lettuce and tomato on wheat Goldfish bread with some baby carrots and a Smartfood cheddar popcorn 100 calorie package. I feel better and no longer hungry. Guess we have salmon for dinner tomorrow.
I'm going to do some dancing and strength training tonight and I think that will help me feel better. I'm on Day 23 of my 28 Day Boot Camp Challenge. BUT I have to do this in front of my DH, which sometimes really bothers me. Maybe I'll go in the kitchen. I don't know yet. Hrm.
(Did you do your two sets of Kegels yet?)
Hope you're having a good Spark Day. Are you eating well? Did you exercise? If not yet, can you get up and do 10 minutes of something at least? I may not be able to do an hour, but I CAN do 10 minutes of dancing. I CAN do my 10 minutes of strength training. Can you?
