Very sad

I am at a loss today.  I don’t know all the details, but my sister passed away.  We weren’t very close and I am very regretful that we now will never have a chance to be.  Of course I am also feeling guilty because I should have learned my lesson the first time when my brother passed away some years ago.  He and I hadn’t spoken for some time because of a falling out.  And I always felt guilty about that.  Now I am experiencing the same guilt because I should have made more of an effort.  It’s a long story, but I basically gave up on having a relationship with my sister many years ago.  It wasn’t that we weren’t speaking to each other, we just didn’t speak very often to each other. 

I am so worried about my mother.  I am not sure how she got through this the first time and I am not sure how she will get through it again.  Now as her only living child, she is paranoid about something happening to me.

Late on the report

Yesterday was my weigh in.  (TMI alert) Since part of the week I was still on my cycle, I only lost 2.5 lbs.  This brings my total weight loss to 12 lbs in four weeks! I didn’t lose any inches from my waist but did lose 2 inches from my mid-waist… which is the lower ab area and where I most want to lose weight.  I am really hoping to reach my goal soon, I am ready to eat something not green. LOL

We went today and turned in the applications for our passports.  It is getting exciting thinking about vacation.  Of course, Sean talked to his mother this week and she is such a negative person, always tries to bring people down.  Makes me so mad.  She is saying how she was going to go to St. Martin’s but the ratings for the hotel weren’t great. Whatever.

Rainy weekend

Means lazy days around here.  It is cold and wet outside.  Hannah seems to be coming down with something, so we have done a whole lot of nothing. 

I watched the first two discs of Army Wives Season 3.  Such a good show.  Can’t wait to get the next couple of discs.  I stitched a little while watching.

I received my order from SNT.  I didn’t get that many things but it was fun opening the mailbox and seeing the brown envelope.

The weight loss is moving along.  I go in on Tuesday for my weigh in.  After my (TMI) cycle ended my weight started to go down again, so I am hopeful for Tuesday’s results.

We ate out tonight.  Well, sorta.  Since Hannah wasn’t feeling well, Sean ordered curbside from The Outback.  It is one of the few places where I can get just a steak and broccoli.  It was yummy and I didn’t have to cook it.

After dropping Hannah off at school, I returned the battery jumper at the auto store, a pack of t-shirts I bought for Sean in the wrong size, went to the grocery store, came home started laundry and cleaned up/out about 2/3 of the laundry room, cleaned out the freezer and then it was time to pick Hannah up from school.  It was another beautiful day, so I let Hannah play.  They have MSA this week, so a little time burning some energy is just what she needed.  I made dinner when we got home, did the dishes, folded some laundry and sat down about 7:30 pm to relax.  Tomorrow is going to be busy too.  I got to finish some laundry, go to the chiro for my weigh in and adjustment, run some errands with Sean, vacuum, dust, clean the bathrooms, and finish cleaning the laundry room.  I don’t think I am going to finish that all tomorrow… maybe Wednesday?  I really want to get the house in order this week.  The chaos is starting to get under my skin.

I am still waiting on my SNT order, and I really want to stitch on a spring/summer design so that I can get out of this winter blue mood.  So I haven’t stitched yet.  Every time I think about doing it, ten other things need to be done, then the evening rolls around and I am to tired to concentrate on it.  And I really need to get busy on the end of the year gift.  Mojo…. where are you?

Have been bumming

So I haven’t been doing things that I should… started the laundry but lost steam and didn’t do the last two loads.  I have to finish that this new week.  I did get a burst of energy after I worked out this morning.  Cleaned the back yard of doggie poo since we had more than we would like to admit that needed to be scooped, dug out the old trash bin for recycling over load, vacuumed and did the checkbook. 

I have tons of things I want to get done this week.  I won’t be volunteering due to the MSA testing, so maybe I will actually do some things around the house that need to be done, like dusting and cleaning the bathroom.  I also want to purge.  The office is in terrible shape and so is the laundry & sun room.  Lots of stuff needs to go.

I went to my weigh in this past Tuesday and lost a total of 7.5 pounds & 3 inches from my waist in two weeks.  This coming Tuesday will be my 3rd finished week but I am not expecting a huge loss this time.  I read that while on your cycle you will not show any weight lose but will still in inches.  And guess who is on their cycle?  TMI?

I have been watching a few movies this week.  That’s been nice, but I haven’t stitched in a while even though I want to, I just feel to wiped out in in the evening to concentrate on it.  Have been waiting on an order from Stitches N Things of a few things… One I have been daydreaming of starting. 

Off to watch 2012!
