Well, it's Monday again, and I really wasn't ready for the weekend to be over. I don't feel like I accomplished the first thing (probably because I didn't) and now I want a "re-do". :o) I woke up this morning, surveyed my messy house and felt like a crappy wife. If I can't keep my house out of CHAOS while there's just the two of us, how can I ever hope to make it with children? So, I guess just like I'm trying to learn good eating habits, I need to try to learn good life habits.
I'm an all or nothing kind of girl - It's either gotta be perfect or I'm not going to bother to do it. That character trait controls everything I do. I don't like to learn how to do new things (ie: knitting) because I don't like to do things I'm not good at. And if I eat a little too much, I scrap the whole day and don't even bother trying to get OP. And if I don't have the time or energy to clean my house until it sparkles in every corner, I'll let it go until I do.
Since I've recognized this, I'm hoping that I can start changing this mindset because it's obviously holding me back.
I went Sunday to DB to have my bridesmaid dress altered. They wanted me to spend $100 in alterations! I told them, "Look, I'm sorry, but that's more than I paid for the dress. What's the bare minimum?" So, I got it down to $40 (which, by the way was just taking up the halter and putting in bra cups) and that's going to have to be good enough. I mean really, there's 5 of us - no one's going to be scrupulously looking at me - I'm just another bridesmaid! :o) I may be cheap, but I see no sense in paying out the butt for a dress that I'll never wear again. (and I'll never ever wear it again - it's SOOOOOO not my color!) :o) *sigh* But, of course, all of you are hearing this, because there's no way that I'm venting to my family and risk the chance of it getting back to Cyrena (the bride). She's got enough going on without worrying that her Future SIL is freaking out!! (I'm not really freaking...)
The luau was fun. Lots of yummy fruits and veggies (and mini quiche, cheese balls, cookies, and cake!) We have no idea how many points we ate, but since we filled up on the low point stuff it couldn't have been too bad. We just went easy for the rest of the evening and ate a couple of low point snacks.
I guess that's it. Now that one of my coworkers quit I feel like I have a ton of organizing to do, which is weird because the organizing has nothing to do with him. I guess I just want our office o have some sanity to it since we're one accountant down and it's liable to be stressful for the rest of the accountants. (There's only 3 of us here now) Lucky for me I'm just the office manager. A glorified secretary, really. My job is much easier. (and my paycheck is much smaller!) So I guess I better check in with ya'll before while it's still calm!
Have a great OP day!!
