Oh I have to post this-it's so darn cute. From 7x7SF ASPCA pet adoptions in the Macy's window. It doesn't get cuter than that-unless pf course, ahem, they're wearing a SF Giant uniform.

Just The Facts...

I have been thinking a lot about weight loss lately. Aside from the obvious 10 or 70 pounds I need to lose, I have been wondering why I stop at a certain point in my weight loss, only to gain it back again. Believe me, there are a lot of insightful people out there-and I came across this tonight. It made my heart stop and my eyes to tear because this may be the answer I'm looking for. Talk about reality check, here it is:

Yeah, that sums it up.

Posting Again

So, I just went through my entire day and how it SUCKED! and was going to add some pictures for a visual and I got logged off and am now STARTING AGAIN! Great, now we have a power surge through the house.

Another Day In Paradise

Okay, this is how my day went. Got up, immediately thought about calling in sick (not sick, weekend just went too fast) somehow got through the day, came home excited to craft. CANNOT FIND ANYTHING!
I decorated a carry out box to use for a 'BOO'd' gift. CANNOT FIND THE STUFF I HAVE TO PUT IN IT! Went to take pictures of said box. CAMERA IS OUT OF BATTERIES! Got dinner (husband made) and brought back to desk. Got up to look for something (again!) DOG ATE MY DINNER!

Don't Bother Getting Up...

Trying to create....
Cat gets in the way,
She looks up mid-groom,
tongue is out,
And she leaves as soon as photo taken
Presumably for another spot to disturb

Time is On My Side, Yes It Is

Where the heck did a week go?
Okay so I have been reading some very funny blogs lately and I need to get you in on it. First, since I am always dieting/stressing about dieting/thinking about the next diet/desperate that I can't lose weight, this is the one I go to for inspiration. Daily Diet. That's not what she calls it and I ask for liberty with this. The link is correct. She tries a new diet each week and shares results.

When you stop laughing, go here to Life or Something Like It and stay real with her blog. You will be glad you visited both these ladies. They have something to share. And you will laugh your ass off!

I am not losing weight although I kid myself that I am doing everything in my power. I blame my thyroid, for which I am taking medication, I blame stress at work, and I can blame a million other things. What I do not take credit for is that I am completely OKAY just being myself. There is nothing wrong with me, nothing that losing weight is going to cure. I am still the same person, with the same creative ideas. And I get that, I do. However, once I start being my creative self I start to doubt because I am not like the other bloggers whose lives seem perfect. Really, can anyone be that successful, that sweet, have the perfect husband, the perfect children, lives blah blah blah. Who are these Stepford crafters? And do I really want to be one of them? I think I do, then catch myself and realize I am not a Stepford crafter. I am my own uniquely, wonderful person/crafter/funny/blogger who just loves to do what I can to make someone smile. You know what I received the other day? A hand drawing and photo of three lovely children who were thanking me for some Halloween goodie bags I made for them. What better reward is that?
And that goes down as gift #3 for the day.
Read it-I was a non-believer , wait, I am a non-believer, a once upon a time believer who seems to want to grapple with the magic of miracles in my everyday life. And while I am not ready for the head first plunge I do appreciate the fact that a total stranger will share her everyday life with the world and let us see that there truly is good and beauty in all this messed up daily life. So go on over to One Thousand Gifts. I'm not even going to Link it-take the time and find it on your own. You will see changes in your life that will amaze.
Oh, and I really need to change my blog background. This is hideous!
