Things to say...

Monday, February 10, 2014

Hello Sparkpeople! Happy Monday. I had a pretty good weekend. I ate within reason for the most part. I haven't been tracking for crap these past 2 weeks since my obsession with tumblr sherlock fandom manifested. I do feel it waning though. I'm getting much better at doing SP on my iPhone. :)

So Saturday I went to my ladies meeting as always and it was lovely. Made a new friend. My husband had to go to work, then had plans to get together with his drinking buddy in the afternoon. His friend is moving up to globe to work at the mines. I figured he'd be out late being stupid. But he was only gone 2-430. Poor dear! My daughter had meanwhile made plans to get together with a friend so we were hanging out waiting to see what time. So low and freaking behold I was suddenly compelled to clean up my side of the room.

Now this is big because this pile of detrus has existed in one form or another for the past sevaral YEARS. So that shows where my head really is: time to clean house! Not wanting to emotional deal with things has manifested in the material. Now I'm suddenly able to do it. And you know what? It felt so awesome and liberating! Just chucking stuff. Clearing away the dust! Getting my house in order so to speak. (Btw can't wait to tell my sponsor she will be so proud!)

So funny thing my daughter started to clean her room too! Win win! Her friend came over and help her finish and she moved around her furniture a bit and made it really nice. That's a major bonus, because it bothered me that my hoarding habits were rubbing off on my daughter. It is good to see her make healthy choices too. It made me feel really good. When she was done I took her back to her friends house and they had a sleepover. I told then not to stay up too late cuz we had to be out in Gold Canyon at 9am but I doubt if they paid attention.

Stopped by the track on the way home and did my C25K run. Had a great time doing that. Finally! Did not get much exercise in this week as "my friend" came into town a week early! Grr! Then went home and hoped my husband would just be drunk and pass out and not bother me but was only slightly buzzed and wanted to watch a movie. We watched "Dark Shadows" with Johnny Depp. It was dreadful! And I love Johnny Depp movies even the weird ones. But this was pretty stupid. Oh well.

Then yesterday went to the fundraiser for cheer 9-12. Met my grandma and aunt for lunch. That was a total fiasco. I've already gone on too much. I will have to save it for another time. My daughter had asked to hold my phone and was playing on her kindle and then left my phone on the table. And I was SO pissed! Fortunately it was still there but unfortunately list my cool in front of my family. My husband declined the invite. So at least he didn't see it. But I felt like crap for getting so mad. My daughter apologized to me and I to her. So I guess it's okay. But I Hate losing my temper! And after all day reminding myself to "be impeccable with my word" lol. But that what happens I guess. Progress not perfection :)

    you do realize that if you don't blow once in a while you will implode?
    that means that all your seams will stretch out & you will be at least 4 sizes larger!
    so loosing your cool & blowing is not only mentally good for you ..it is physically the perfect thing to do...Once in a while...
    now humor over..fact is yep we all just gotta blow once in a while..at least you both apologized & got on with life! Bet she won't forget your phone ever again!!

    Sounds like so really good times, and C25K is great.

    Hello and Happy Monday, Ms. D!

    This blog is awesome! I love that you're feeling so liberated and empowered! Kudos for tackling that room that's been hanging over your head. And for working on your C25k!!! You are doing amazing things, my friend.

    I also think it's great that although you lost your cool, you owned up to it and apologized, and I don't get the feeling that you're beating yourself up about it. Progress not perfection, like you said. That in and of itself is progress!
