I'm spinning out today, to be totally honest. Standing around in the kitchen here, not writing a blog post, not sorting or scanning photos, not starting supper...In short, the day is going to hell in a handbasket.
I blame the health craze. Let's just take the bull by the horns and get this out in the open. It is because of our health-crazed society that I am trying to lose weight. And it is because of this health craze that I feel so badly every morning when I weigh myself and discover that I have not only not lost any weight, but I have often gained an ounce or two! This hardly makes any sense at all when you consider how carefully I have been watching what I have been eating! I don't know what more I can do,
News flash, health nazis: there is a reason why sensible, smart people have trouble seeing dieting as a good thing: it makes us hungry. Yes, sure, it is all well and good to be
On the upside, apparently the photobook I submitted on the weekend is on a truck out for delivery to me today! Ha! Well, they did give me a coupon for free shipping, and when I got to that page on the order form, I was amazed to notice that "Free" was written next to every shipping option, from donkey mail to overnight courier! Sure, I could have ticked off the least expensive shipping method, but I figured they owed me after all the aggravation
Be that as it may, I am thrilled to know that I will soon be holding a photographic masterpiece in my hands! The only real question is whether I should alert the media.
Something else which belongs in the positive column is the fact that it is a simply glorious spring day out there. I just took Minnie out for a little jaunt up the driveway and I saw so many spring flowers shooting up out of hte ground that I was practically skipping on the way back! A few friends replied to my Facebook status this morning (re- spinning my wheels) that I ought to get out in the sun, take a walk, etc and I am going to take every one's advice! I am going to take a walk around the block (thanks, Jennifer!), then I am going to come home and sit in the sunroom to work on Kenny's photobook (thanks Cathy and Donita) ! I am going to post this and turn right around again to go!
But one last thing: Thank you, Kiki for reminding me last week about "counting your wins". I may not be losing weight yet (but I bet I will as soon as I start to diet! :D), and I may be spinning out a little today--- but I have two loads of laundry finished, my photobook is on its way to our door and I am about to finally take the first in what I hope will be a regular habit of walks!
Why, I'm not spinning out at all!
Good Day, All!
*Another thoughtful little gift of exquisitely appropriate culture for my Friends in the Know. Don't mention it.
