It’s Labour Weekend here this weekend and I am like that little kid in the back seat squirming around and whining “Are we there yet? Now? How much longer? What town is next? And then?” It’s been one of those weeks. Rastus cost us $462 at the vet. Yeah. I can forget having spare money for a while.
BUT….I’m determined to change course and focus on the positives:
– I got a gorgeous gift this week. Yarn. Silk/merino yarn. Yarn so soft I want to take it to bed and spoon it. Yeah, yarn that feels that good. Jessicah very kindly sent me a skein to cheer me up after my bad week last week. It was the perfect mail yesterday. Thank you Jessicah, it was so generous (and delicious). 2 ply scares the bejeebers out of me but I’m going to sit in the sun and crochet myself a couple of beautiful headbands so I can go for a walk in the wind and not look ‘windswept and interesting’ when I get to the shops. The colourway is sky. Take a look at Jessicahs etsy shop and prepare to drool.
– I lost 900 grams this week, the first time I have managed that much in a long time. I’ve now lost 16kg (35.2lb) and only have 10.7 to lose. I am over halfway!! One minute it was so far away, the next thing I know I’m miles past it! I now weigh 92.7kg at WW and that means I’m 90.7kg (under 200lb!!) at the hospital. The doctor said he would refer me at 90kg so I’m basically at referral weight!! I have two weeks to get closer to the 80’s. Omigosh the 80’s….when did I last see them? I am turning so vain these days, I check myself out in every mirror or shop window. I now weigh the weight I was before I met Dave. The old me is back. I’m babbling with happiness, can you tell?
– I walked into my street today to an almighty noise. The birds were taunting this poor pussy cat, just out of reach. They kept swooping just out of reach and cackling. He was not a happy cat! It was one of those little scenes that can make you chuckle for the whole afternoon.
– The very beginning stages of my dream came true today. Very tentative baby steps so I won’t say more right now. Suffice to say there is light at the end of the tunnel and November the 14th will be an amazing day. I’m planning on taking business classes next year. I know exactly where I want our life to go. Now I just have to figure out how to keep heading that way.
As usual with these blog entries I finish typing only to see I have so much to be thankful for and how good life really is!
