I've been refinishing this antique dresser for about a week now. It's driving me crazy. I took SEVEN layers of paint off this thing, and the last layer is so deep in the wood that it's just about impossible to get out. It's coming, but s-l-o-w-l-y. I was hoping to have it done today but I just couldn't finish it. Plus, I scraped and scrubbed that thing until my arms just wouldn't work any more. I really do like refinishing furniture, but GEEZ...the process itself can be so frustrating at times. I'm definitely at that "What the Hell was I thinking?!" part of this project.
My kitty still hasn't come home. I miss him so badly. I've cried every day. I don't know what to do without him.
I also miss Gramma so much, the past few days, especially. I just want to call her up and tell her about my new classroom, tell her about my lost cat, hear what she's up to...I just want to have one of our two-hour conversations. I want to hear her voice, laugh with her...I miss her so much.
I have been doing better with my eating. I've been back at school, so I've been moving more (a LOT more!!!) and eating less. When I have been eating, I've been making better choices, watching my portions better, eating more fruits/veggies, etc. So I'm feeling a bit better about that. I've also been going to bed the past 2-3 weeks without any medicinal help. I've been able to just get in bed and go to sleep on my own, after about 2 hours of watching tv, reading, etc. This is a big deal for me, so I am very happy about this.
It's 9:30 on a Saturday night and I'm going to bed. Ring-a-ding-ding. I'm a real wild child.
