You know, I feel like I am blogging more often than I really am. Maybe it is because I spend a good part of my morning reading other blogs and commenting… that takes a goodly amount of time. I enjoy this time with my online “friends”. I love seeing what you are doing. For some reason, that feels like blogging to me and now I realize that I am spending less time on my blog and more time ‘out there’. I don’t want to stop reading other blogs, I don’t. I think what I need to do is set a schedule for my own blog and try to stick to it. What do you think? Monday, Wednesday, and Friday? More as needed.
The pictures above represent a couple of things happening here in Chez Caboodle. The first is that I am trying to get some more bags done. Some I will list on Etsy, others will be gifts. At least one will be mine because I burned the fabric while working on it! ARG! That is the other thing this pile represents: frustration.
Major venting/whining ahead: please proceed with caution and bring cheese (or just skip to your next blogroll link).
I have been trying to do several things in my life and crafting, and none of it seems to be panning out. I have ripped out hours and hours of knitting projects several times. I have had to resew several things including bags. You would think I would have my standard bag down to an art (so to speak). I should be able to put one together without making glaring errors but I do make the errors. My seam ripper is getting dull. My lack of attention on these things is distressing to me… am I really so distracted?
Also, I have been trying to get my weight under control since I got over the flu in early January… I would have started in December if I hadn’t gotten sick. Now, six weeks later, I am actually bigger. My diet has been better than ever, I am exercising more than I have done in over 2 years. And I have been sick for 2 weeks now. BC has been sick too, capping it off with a major ear infection starting last Thursday… this virus just won’t give up!
I have been in my jammies since Saturday night. I would have spent all of Saturday in them but I had a prior commitment. I have to take them off in a couple of hours again for an appointment or I would stay in them today as well.
Yep, I got the blues. But just in case you think I have the bottom of the whine barrel and can’t get out, I have a plan. Yes, a plan:
1. Up the amount of exercise I’m doing but bring down the intensity so I won’t burnout.
2. Cut out most sugar. Send me some strength on this one, I am an addict.
3. Cut out most wheat… again. I had a total relapse since I have been sick.
4. Think ahead on projects… write down the steps I need to take.
5. Get out of these jammies!
If you have any recommendations for this list, I’m open.
That’s it for now. I’m out of whine. Thanks for listening if you made it this far!
