It took me til late last night... late late late when I was going to bed at 3 AM, when I finally figured out I was PMSing and TOM is on the way tomorrow or Tues.. That makes sense. I was SUPER hormonal. And had so many chocolate/ice cream type cravings. OMG! Crampy and nightmares all night. Bleah. At like 2:30 AM I had started to put on music and I didn't like the feel of the headphones and couldn't regulate the music so I gave up on dancing last night. I will try to do some later.. if my legs hold up.
Today I had to drive 45 min. to a board meeting for my singing group. I missed our sing before the meeting, but was there for the scheduled time of the meeting (even though they began earlier). I do feel my input was helpful, though. It was hard to be there - sitting at the table covered with food. A lot of it was healthy stuff, but they had a tray of brownies and a plate of dark chocolate cookies, too. I had just eaten a big bowl of my steel cut oatmeal and fruit before leaving home, so I wasn't hungry, it was just so tempting. The brownies were right at my place and about 10 minutes after I was sitting there only able to focus on this plate of brownies, I finally handed them to the lady beside me and asked her to move them away because I was PMSy and thought I might eat them all. I had not eaten ANY at that point. I said I'd have some food at the end and before it ended a couple hours later, I did have a plate full of the delicious fresh cut fruit from two diff. fruit trays (about 1 cup?) and one piece of cheese (1 oz) and before I left I took two of the dark chocolate choc. chip cookies. Then I looked at the package when I spotted it and saw they were each 75 cal. Not terrible, though. Very very dark chocolate ones.
When I got back to town I went to the grocery store to get cold cuts. I had gone to a different store yesterday and the cold cuts averaged $1- more per lb., so I didn't get any. But then I remembered my purse was at home. :(
Came home and found a HUGE mess at my computer. The trash was tipped over right in front of my chair and the butter (about a half stick) was sitting on the side of the trash can. The butter tray was on the floor. The bread package was on the floor. One slice of buttered bread on my desk, water spilled everywhere. Mouse soaking wet, gum scattered all over the floor and all soaking wet.. and an empty ice cream container (one of mine that he'd eaten) was on the floor, too. My headphones were on the floor and the mouse was hanging in the air. I was not a happy Mommy! DH hadn't gotten up when I left at noon and he needed to. He never checked the computer space since getting up. I told Nicholas to clean it up while I took laundry downstairs and if he didn't do it I would be taking away his favorite doll for the day. While some was cleaned up, not all of it by a long shot and he refused to come help when I told him he wasn't done. I had to do a lot of it myself. He loses the doll today and the computer use privilege for three days - AND he is my servant for cleaning at my computer the rest of the day (taking out any of my dishes ). OH yes, and he left poop smeared all over the toilet seat. EWW!! I Had to go so I had to clean that myself. :( I am really unhappy with his behavior. I keep saying it that way.. that I don't like his behavior, but I still love him. This is important to me and how my Mom used to talk to me.. I knew she LOVED ME unconditionally, even if I did stuff she hated.
I'm more than halfway through the third book of the Hunger Games trilogy, "Mockingjay". I'm very obsessed. I just hope to finish it soon, actually.. but I will need to find another great fiction novel to read next. Suggestions?
So I am going to try to do a virtual 5K now which I signed up for and thought was today. Technically it was for two days ago, but better late than never. It means I'm going to go walk one and time it. It is my regular walk times three all in a row. I can do it. I will take the dog on the first one. It will take approx. an hour or a bit more. My dog goes pretty slowly, but I need to walk her. It's also been raining off/on all day and I hope not to get too wet. I guess I can grab my raincoat if necessary.
