Despite all the many well wishes, positive vibes, good thoughts, and prayers I did not do well at the arts and crafts fair yesterday. Still, I want to thank all of you for your support. I'm not sure what my problem is: not the right target audience, my display may be too eclectic and lacking in focus, my merchandise may not be displayed well enough, perhaps the booth space was too crowded since I was sharing it with my mother-in-law....who knows? I sure don't.
I did get my exercise by loading, unloading, setting up and breaking down, moving my car far away, etc. Unfortunately I set myself back when my husband decided to order in Chinese and I didn't choose healthy or light and ate too much. Ahh, but today is another day. My pedometer is still attached to my pants and I didn't look at the count and can't right now because my husband is sound asleep and I don't want to wake him.
I, on the other hand am wide awake after two sleeping pills. I don't know what it will take to conquer this insomnia. I pray each night to God to let me get some peaceful sleep, to send my guardian angel to wrap me in her arms and ease me into sweet dreams. I don't know why I am being challenged with this; aren't my frequent and severe migraines enough to deal with? Apparently not.
I read today about making an angel box : http://blog.beliefnet.com/angelsonyourshou
lder/2009/10/making-an-angel-box.html. Maybe since I have been painting angels lately I should continue in that vein then make angel boxes using my images and try to sell those. Again, who knows? What I do know is that I can put my own personal angel box to good use, and that iI need to go back to bed and try to go to sleep.

Yesterdat was day 1 of wearing my step counter. I made an attempt to get extra exercise but not set my goals too lofty. After all, it was only Day 1 and when I looked at my counter before climbing into bed I had taken 9,670 steps. Can you believe it? I was way too tired to get the extra few hundred to reach 10,000, but still 9,760! 9760!
Went out to lunch with my mother-in-law, and tried to order healthy small portions with lots of veggies. Who know the real coulorie count though? Guess I better start tracking my food, But one thing at a time. 9,760 steps!
I don't know what to expect today with the craft show. The weather is supoosed to be a rain/snow mix. I hope the weather is bad enough people can't enjoy their regular outdoor activitied but not so bad that they won't drive to the craft show. As I look out my window now, there is just light rain. Ahhhh, but I don't have any control of the weather. I don't have control over anything except myself and I can not allow myself to be upset if the show is a failure due to eather or just whether people don't like and won't buy my stuff.
I have plans for unsold fine artwork and photographs; whether they bear fruit or not is again what remains to be seen.
I ask everyone that reads this to please hold a good thought for me today, send out positive vibes, say a prayer, or do whatever it is you do to help me do well at the show. I would greatly appreciate it. Now it's time to go back to bed and try to get some sleep.

While I was at the doctor yesterday, i recalled them publicizing the 10,000 step a day program long, long ago. I asked them if they still sold pedometers and, by gosh, they still did. So I got one!
I spent today recovering from my migraine. Tomorrow will be the first day that I wear it. I did the 10,000 steps a day regime once before and met my fitness goals. I will now do it again. It will be harder this time, because my husband doesn't like to eat healthily, but he will exercise with me. I know I can reach my goal!
