I kept thinking all day yesterday that YESTERDAY was Wednesday...so it looks like I've got an EXTRA day this week! WONDERFUL!
Things on board for today:
Gym. Bank. Tan. Massage. Return/Exchange Shoes.
In that order.
Gym, Bank, and Tan are done…Massage is at 3…Shoes can either come before or after. I bought a size 8.5 yesterday, and when I got home and put my arch support thingies in them (Yes, fallen arches, that dreadful sign of middle age, along with the fact that my glasses now sport bifocals?) I realized I should have gotten 9s. So..back they go.
I loved spending time working out with my trainer this morning even though she kicked my butt to Mars and back. (Love you Charlee girl, you know I do….)and doing all those “normal” errands around town things that most people take for granted. Isn't that silly? What to do what to do....what can I take time for that I haven't had time for lately!?
My friend Jen from the next town over emailed and said...WANNA SEW?! Oh yes..oh YES I DO! And I've got time to do it! I told her any time between now and 4th of July works for me. Doesn't that sound blissful?
I wanna rent some DVDs I've been wanting to see (Anyone else besides me still fall into the habit of calling them VIDEOS?! as in TAPES? Sign of my age I guess..I am so not with it.)I've got a couple bindings to finish and I can do those leisurely in the evenings...that is....if I can get DH to stop watching all night long marathons of "America's Got Talent". It was on for HOURS last night, and about 1 hour is all I can handle of that. I'm just such a softie, I don't like to see anyone get the XXX, even if they are horrbile..hehehe
I am also feeling the need to do some more dejunking and organizing around here...no, not in the studio..but things like the drawers in my bedroom. Get rid of old tshirts I'm really not into wearing anymore. Find all the socks with no mates, and either match them or ditch them...get rid of all the old undies that the elastic is worn out of (You guys don't actually save those too, do you? It's a sickness, like...someone in :::name the country::: might not even have underwear, and would be glad to HAVE these, so you have to keep them out of guilt?!)and just toss.
Mostly...it's about over abundance. How many do I have...why do I have 46 pairs of socks, and how many can I really wear, and why am I keeping the ones that are past their time?
This inevitably will move on to things like getting rid of bras that have lost their shape, panty hose with a run or two (But works with slacks or long skirts??)And into the hanging stuff in my closet.
I want to skinny down EVERYTHING. I want my drawers to shut. I think....if I start with just one....I can work through quite a few in the next 10 days before I head to Oregon.
And there with I issue you this challenge....A Drawer A Day..are you IN!? What drawer do you want to tackle first? Leave me a comment. I'm throwing down the gauntlet!
OH, and before I forget! Here are some pics from the Virginia Bound class in Arlington Heights!
Virginia Bound, Arlington Hts IL 2010
We really had a great time, no storms happened on Saturday!
PS....I've got an appt tomorrow morning early for a physical and bloodwork, to start the baseline for my blood sugar testing. Nothing to eat past midnight tonight. Good thing it's an early appt, I have to leave the house at 7:30am! I'm hoping this is the start to really finding out what's what and how to deal with it. Thanks for all the support I've received via email. IT HELPS to know I'm not alone facing diabetes!
