Not so Terrible Tuesday !!! Yesterday helped, and I'm feeling a bit better .. :) YAY ME!!!!!

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks..


I'm kinda on my way back from the abiss .. I spent the day yesterday in my playroom, and while there were many many booboo's on my card I was working on .. I finally came up with one .. I had one almost done, and since I haven't worked with vellum for quite a while; and it warped . DOH !!!!!

Well .. this one ended up in my "emergency stash" box, and we started yet again .. lol lol ..

My next attempt worked out better, but some of my pens bled on the paper; so I made a couple attempts, and well .. by the time I DID get it; I didn't have to "practice" anymore .. lol lol .. or trace over my practice ... lol lol lol .. But I was upstairs with my CD's on and listening to the Carpenters, Andy Williams, and Benny Goodman .. I was in MY world .. I finally got my card done .. :)

Of course it was after 5 before I finished, and my body was screaming .. I was so much into my world; I was hunched over my desk .. and actually felt myself all tensed .. I was doing alot of tiny closeup work, and well .. when I do that, I find myself hunched farther and farther over the desk .. and so focused on my work, that I look away and feel crosseyed .. But ... I was in MY WORLD !!!! I was stiff ..

I came downstairs and did my journal .. It was more about my feelings yesterday; then food, because well .. I really didn't eat much .. I had comfort food all day long ..

For breakfast I had my oatmeal with greek yogurt .. One of my favorite quick breakfasts .. :) and then for lunch since my breakfast sustained me until hubby came home from grocery shopping for mom; and we had tomato soup and I made a grilled cheese for him, and I made myself a cheese quesidea because I didn't have any bread .. and ooooo It was soooo yummy !!!! It was definately a comfort food day .. Cold, windy, rainy, and sad .. Just calling comfort food all day long .. :)

And the good news was I didn't dive my troubles and sad into sugar and sweets .. so for that I'm SOOOO proud of myself !!!! YAY ME !!!!!

To tell you the truth, by the time I came downstairs, I actually felt okay .. I had my day of nobody bothering me, and I felt pretty darn good .. Hubby knows when I'm sad, just let me work it out, and when "I" am ready to talk I will, if needed .. and I thank him for that... He did deliver a message from mom .. apologizing again .. We'll have to go through this for awhile, but that much I'm prepared for .. because we have been through this before .. it's the other half .. I'm happy to say, that she called yesterday morning, just to apologize (until her phone battery pooped out) .. and I got her giggling a bit .. and that started MY healing.. :)

I'm happy that I actually slept pretty good last night .. no .. I slept GOOD until 3 this morning .. when I realized .. that "the C in Pacific Ocean is pronounced different 3 times" .. lol lol .... and then it was over .. lol ..

Today -- today will be making up the angel food cake, and cleaning the strawberries for emergency if mom doesn't get hers done .. I have emergency stash, and I enjoy it as well .. so it won't go to waste if mom gets her cake baked ..

Tomorrow, is my nails, and then dinner with my friends, Thursday is at mom's, Friday is taking mom to the doctor, Saturday is trick or treat, and Sunday is the retirement party .. then Monday ... Monday is COLLAPSE !!!! lol lol

Oooo just double checked for Monday .. and saw another card I can make up .. WOOHOO !!! I'm actually enjoying making up cards .. :) YAY ME !!!!!! So I'll have something to do this afternoon after my cake is baked and my strawberries are cleaned .. :) It's another rainy, gloomy, windy and cold day .. *sigh* ..

So -- wishing everyone a great day .. I'm on my way back, and in a couple more days .. I'll be back to obnoxiously positive full time again !!!!! :) (hoping)

Have a great day !!!! :) I'm going to !!!!!!

    Love your cards. And glad you got the thinking of you card done.

    Glad you had a good day!

    Yes, yesterday AND today are definitely comfort food days.

    Good for you not diving into sugar and sweets to get rid of the sads. Wahoo!

    Glad that DH had a decent time w/your Mom and that she again apologized. **Sigh** Just had a bad day. And even better that you were giggling w/her on the phone.

    Have a good time tomorrow w/your friends. That will be nice.

    And good luck w/your Mom’s Dr. visit Thursday.
