Must. Get. On. Track.

Thursday, September 13, 2012

I have to wear a white dress in approximately 30 days.

Because of my dread to be in all white... I have not even started making my dress. Oh I've been sewing. I made a dog bed for my Hobosis:


I made pencil bags for my daughters, and HAND EMBROIDERED their names in big letters on them. To give you an idea of how long it took, my 5 year old's name has 5 letters in it, and it took about 8 hours to embroider. My 7 year old's name has 6 letters in her name, and it took me every bit of 9 hours to embroider hers, but they are GORGEOUS!


And I have made myself (and two of my friends) e-reader covers for their Kindle's. Did I mention that I also embroidered my friends' names on their e-reader covers???


I have done all of this in avoidance of.... a white dress.

My sister asked me to make Ohio State sheets for the baby boy she has due in December! That is something else I can do to avoid that white dress....

*sigh* OK. Discipline. Control. MAKE YOUR DAGGONE DRESS!!! I vow here and now I am going to get back on track. I am going to start running again (finally feeling better. Cough finally clearing up.) and I am going to start sewing that White Dress. I am going to get back into tracking my food. There is NO reason I shouldn't do it. I am going to start making my breakfasts again and packing my lunches. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Ladies and gentlemen... I am Back.

Thursday: 5K walk around the block.
Friday: 6:00a jog before work
Saturday: spark people videos 30-45 minutes worth.

It will happen. Thanks for hanging in there and cheering me on when I didn't have the strength to do it myself. Enough with excuses. I am so back in the saddle.

    I love your projects! So beautiful!

Don't be afraid of the white dress...
why are you afraid of it? Is is because of what
it symbolizes

- or is it because of how white "allegedly" makes one appear?

I have much to opine about on the subject of "wearing the hue of white" - however, before I elaborate further, I need to hear your answer.

I have missed you so my dear friend!

I am glad you are back.
