Out of Sorts...

Ever have a day where you just feel out of sorts? Today was one of those days for me. Yeah, I got things accomplished and I even had some joy, but it just wasn't my best day. I think it started with bad hair! My hair would not cooperate for love nor money and I thought about throwing on a hat, but even that looked stupid! So I put on a little product, did a few curls and went out anyway! (No, I was not wearing purple!) I went to the mall and did some shopping for the kids advent stockings...Sara is easy...Bryce takes a little more thought. Guess I have more practice with Sara. I made good headway on that project and should be able to complete the task in time to get it to England before December. I ran into an old friend at the mall...isn't that the way when your hair sucks??? Was good to catch up with Rita...I miss her at work, but she is happy, so that's the most important thing. Sewing progress report...I finished the turtleneck last night that goes with the plaid vest. I had to do some alterations. The pattern has a dropped shoulder and I really didn't care for that, so I whacked off about 2 inches to make the top more fitted. I think it will look better that way with a vest and I was hoping this would become a TNT top, so I need to make note of that on the pattern. Heard from the great white hunters this evening...the hunting is not that great, so I hope things improve or else I will have an unhappy man and a freezer not as full as it's potential! That's okay though...I went to Trader Joe's today and stocked up...I love that store. They have such good stuff!!! Love their Mandarin Chicken! I got lunch there...an eggplant wrap with Taziki sauce...mmmmm...It was so good, but then after I ate the whole thing I read the nutritional label and half a wrap was a serving! Why do they do that? You think you're eating all healthy and then you realize...you're a pig!!! Actually, I am okay on my calorie count with eating the whole thing, but it's crazy. Tom and I were having cereal the other morning and I had an actual serving and he's like "What? Did we run out of cereal?" When I explained that this was one serving size, he was totally amazed and not amused! All this talk of food has made me hungry, so I better go fix some dinner! Later...

Something I've found out about myself; as much as I love my raisin bran, it just doesn't stick with me!!! I've been trying soooo hard for about 6 weeks to lose the 10 pounds I've put on over the past 2 years. So far I've lost a whopping 2 pounds!!!! This is with going to the gym almost every day too. Anyway I've had to switch to protein in the AM because an hour after I eat a bowl of cereal? I'm ready to lick the paint right off the walls!

I'm sorry you felt out of sorts, Mom! I was with the girls yesterday, so there was lots of Mama Deeter love in the air - hopefully it will reach you!! I love you. :)

Thanks Punkin...I was missing my girl...I miss just being able to crawl the mall and go for sushi with you on a whim, but I did get some cool stuff for the stocking...it definitely has a theme this year..."Betcha can't read my mind"...I'm just saying!!!

That's so funny about the cereal. I always measure my cereal with a measuring cup. If I don't, I'll fill my bowl with a visual serving size which is nothing like the measuring cup serving size. As my momma always said, "Your eyes are bigger than your stomach!"
