Friday morning; it's another beautiful, low humidity, blue sky, slight breeze day.
Yet, I am irritated.
Was supposed to go shopping w/my DD, 16 - then, because I pushed her to call her adviser, she found out last night that her 4-H projects must be ready to be judged tomorrow. Three breads to bake today. Plus the rug hooking project is only 1/3 done. DD said she'll do it during the school year; I (and DH) are doubtful, DD also has quilting materials for a bed cover that we bought for her to do last summer.
To be honest, my DD isn't the real source of my frustration.
We are two weeks before school is starting, one week before the great county fair begins and I haven't had beach time. I am recharged at water. The past few years we've had beach time. This year we are holding vacation time for when our eldest returns home after teaching in Korea and our middle son finishes college. We will take a vacation, just not sure how much or where as DD will be in school. Walking last night, my DH admitted to wanting to just drive up to MI instead of work.
So much to do - past few days spent planning, planning, planning and I'm not ready for the fall season to begin yet. Local people don't get it, my itchiness to get away.
I ate poorly the past two days - no binges but here and there poor choices. I'd stopped logging my food, thinking logging my exercise would be enough. Nope! Back to logging both eating and exercise. Water too though that isn't an issue for me.
So, back to my mood. Tuesday we are going to KI, a 3 month delay celebrating DD's 16th bday w/her friends - delay due to weather issues before. So, I can hang at the fake water area.
My challenge today is to find a way to let go of my irritation. To find a way to relax and enjoy w/out water. To do some planning and yet find joy in the day. To not give into poor eating choices just because I am irritable and pitying myself for no lake vacation.
