Focus on the positive
Sunday, June 30, 2013
Weighed myself this week. Not a happy time, but I decided to pick myself up and get back to eating mostly fruit and veggies. I don't need the gluten free versions of popular items. They just aren't the same and do not satisfy.
Can't believe it's almost the 4th of July. I need to figure out a way to make it special because once again the in-law's aren't doing anything and I know that bothers my husband. They used to have a party, but last year went camping instead and this year just don't care I guess. I also need to do something to make it special for me too since this was always a big holiday for my family and probably the hardest one for me to get through without my brother. He loved fireworks and was a bit of a pyro. In fact it was 2 years ago on the 4th when my brother's spirit came to me to reassure me that his accident was just that, an accident.
I used to be known for finding something positive to laugh about everyday. I guess I'm still known for that at work, but it takes a lot out of me these days. People here are just driving me crazy. I keep noticing how rude and selfish the people here tend to be. I can't change them, but can change how I react.
My husband did the grocery shopping yesterday and I am so amazed. If he comes with me he goes and hides while I shop and then stands there while I unload and reload the cart. He wonders why the cashiers always give him funny looks and keep explaining that they probably don't expect him to just stand there while I walk around him trying to get things done. So I was extremely shocked when he offered to do the shopping alone. He did pretty good too. The wrong brand of hummus, but he still got my hummus instead of just saying he'd let me do it later. He also forgot my apples, but did get me raspberries and I have some apple left from last week. He made an effort so I have to give him props for that.
Off to the wildlife sanctuary to give them some supplies I bought for the baby animals.
