Today's Happy-Place Photo:
Good Morning, Sparklers.
This morning I awoke to a scale that said 187.8.
I did not curl up into a ball, no matter how much I really, REALLY wanted to.
Yesterday I did pretty badly on the food front. I started off really well while I was at work and then I went to a games night hosted by my brother and proceeded to eat way too many Kit-Kats and Peppermint Paddies.
So I get home last night and put my drops in my eye. I lay down. Two hours later the worst thing about the drops happens - I can TASTE THEM. I want you to imagine tasting something that is the most bitterly sour chemical taste ever. And it invades your nose and mouth. And it won't go away and spitting it out makes it worse. The remedy, I have found, is eating something thick and sweet - it takes the taste out. Water makes it worse. It does not go away on it's own. So, I went back to sleep after eating three stupid devil's food cookies.
I've never been a nighttime snacker.. I hope to never be again.
I'm trying to focus on what this experience is teaching me. I'm learning that while I had a really great activity level, I apparently did not learn how to effectively manage what I eat. Well, I better learn it now.
The plans for this weekend include lots of housework (there are tumbleweeds of dog hair all over my house...) and getting the craft room organized. After all, it's almost time for the happiest time of the year! That's right, we are at the 60 day count until DragonCon! So excited. My confirmed costume I'm making for this year is the Agent Hill Formal Wear Dress from the Femme*Avengers doodles.
I had also wanted to put together a Black Lantern Wonder Woman costume and a Femme*Thor; but, I don't think I'll have enough time at this point. Next year I'm definitely doing those. This year I think I'll just be bringing Agent Hill, Gambit, my BSG double tanks, Lady Deadpool, and Legends of the Hidden Temple. For those keeping score, Agent Hill is the only new one.
60 days and counting! WOO!
