I had a fitful night last night, for some reason, I just couldn't sleep. I got up 3 times, went on SP, read a lot of Anne of Green Gables and finally nodded off around 5am. As a result, I woke up a little after 12 noon.
By that time, my Mom had already sent my brother to work (afternoon shift) and reached the mall, without me. "Oh well!", I thought, "at least I'll be able to save some money by not being in the mall".
I was on SP, racking up SparkPoints (isn't it fun!?), when I remembered the laundry my Mom had called me about earlier in the afternoon. So, I hung out the laundry for my family (parents & brother; I do my own laundry separately). It was a LOT of laundry but I went to work with a will and was done in less than 30 minutes. I wasn't exactly timing myself so I'm not sure exactly how long I took but it seems to me it was less than 30 minutes.
Then, I decided to reorganize my closet. I ended up 4 piles of clothes that I'm not likely to wear ever again but I'm sure some needy person somewhere would be very happy to get them. In fact, I have some more high waist jeans but I'm not getting rid of them yet as they have interesting details like embroidery or beads on them. I'll have to see, if I don't were them for another 6 months, out they go!
I think it's amazing how much stuff, especially clothes we accumulate as we go along life in this world! Fashions come and go and we're left with unwanted clothes!
I'll tackle the 2 baskets of laundry and my hanging wardrobe next. But not today! I'm plain tuckered out!

I'm still doing my big cross-stitch project. There's a little bit more to do but it seems to be taking forever. It's like a little patch here and there in all different colors. Complicated and tedious.
Plus I don't sew constantly, I only sew when I have a mood to sew. I will take a picture and post it once it's all done. When that distant day comes........sigh!

First off, my Mom keeps saying I'm fat even though I'm only 123lbs and short (4feet11), then my Dad keeps saying that I eat like a pig.
I mean, honestly, I've been tracking my food most days and most of the time I'm under my calorie goal! No wonder I'm still hungry at the end of the day. And I make sure that my late night snacks are healthy like vegie soup and oatmeal without sugar, with a smidgen of low-fat milk.
Just because my Father happens to notice me when I'm eating doesn't mean that I spend the whole day eating or overeat. He just happens to see me eating, that's all. Today, he said that all I ever think about is food when he saw me slowly eating a hot bowl of clear vegie soup!
Hey! Does he know that I didn't even have a proper dinner today because I couldn't bring myself to eat what my Mom cooked today (I'm very sensitive to pork fat, makes me throw up!), which was rice all mixed up with fatty pork and mushrooms!
I mean honestly, sometimes I just feel like running a knife thru my midsection, the way the Japanese commit suicide and leave a note saying : "All you've ever done when I was alive was pick on me! I hope you're happy now!"

I went for my walk today as usual. Today I decided to walk to the Indian cafe to have a serving of Thosai, a kind of flatbread made with some kind of Indian grain served with lentil curry (dhal) and fish curry (without the fish, just the curry gravy).
Well, a few doors away is a boutique. I normally drop in for a chat with the lady who works there. Then, I saw it : a beautiful white dress with spaghetti straps! And it was just my size, I tried it on and it fit me perfectly! It was dressy enough for an elegant dinner but at the same time, casual enough for a day out. But I'll have to wear a short jacket with it though, to hide the dialysis scars on my left arm.
It was actually RM129 but the lady was nice enough to let me have it for RM100! I just couldn't resist! I'm very choosy when it comes to clothing. I decided to get the dress. I told her to reserve it for me for 2 weeks, hopefully, I'll be able to save RM100 by then. I'll have to scrimp for these 2 weeks in order to do that though!
