Part of me wishes I could just skip the next two weeks. I know I'll have fun and it will be good to have a bit of a break, but the stress of getting my presentation together for Friday, trying to get shopping done, trying to find my house under the chaotic amount of chores that need to be done and feeling guilty about not taking the dogs out is getting to me. I'll be breathing a sigh of relief once I get through the last day of work and then all the Christmas gatherings.
I ordered my husband's gift of a website from China (he told me where to get it from) and they haven't even shipped it yet. If I'm lucky he'll get by his birthday in January, but I'd be surprised if it even gets here by then, despite the $50 I paid of express shipping.
The gift I had planned for his birthday was a portrait of our dogs. I paid the lady in August. She had a big holiday sale and apparently commissioned about 200 portraits. Now she's not even answering my emails. I wish she's at least get back to me and say she can't do it. She's also raised her prices since I paid her so maybe it's just not worth her while anymore. ARG!!! Just answer my emails and refund me if you don't plan on doing the work! I'd hate to have to file a Paypal dispute. It's been a week since I last heard from her so I'm giving her a few more days.
So I'm still struggling with stress eating. I bought 2 giant cookies yesterday and ate them both. We went out and got donares instead of cooking the salmon I had planned. The donare wasn't actually bad for me, chicken/pita/tomato/onion/lett
uce/cheese, but it was a lot of pita/ more than I needed to eat.
I bought a new water bottle the day before yesterday and have been doing much better drinking the prescribed 8 glasses. I just have to fill/ drain the bottle 3 times a day.
Spark coach is still a bit of a drag. I already eat enough fruits and vegetables... Most of their info is old news. Still hoping it will pick up soon!
I'm not going to worry about exercising until after Friday. The only time I'm going to schedule if for the dogs. That's all I can handle right now. I've been looking for a wii dance mat and it's impossible to find at a local store. They all sell the dance games, but no mats! I may break down and order off a website.
