Photo Diary | Week's End Review Part 2 |
Friday, April 26, 2013
I am calling this "Part Two" because I can't believe it's been a week since last friday. I thought last week went fast but this one went even faster. I didn't get the leisure time in I was hoping for but I did get a few things done and a few things almost done. And soon, I think, I will even have a couple projects finished to the point I can check them of my list. I have started so many things which are all in some fashion kind of dependent upon one another, so it's been go, go, go without seeing much results. Which sometimes makes me want to lay on the floor and be all dramatic like this little girl (I feel your pain little one). But I keep telling myself that glorious moment is somewhere around the corner where I start seeing things come together.
I did get a few things done this week like sewing up some of my new pillows with the fabric I made. I had been procrastinating a bit - I was nervous I would ruin the fabric. Because usually when I am nervous about something I tend to get a bit spastic and everything I ever knew takes a leave of absence from my brain. But I kept myself under control and now I have the start of my new line (which also takes care of a couple of other things on my to-do list too. But I won't bore you with every detail of my life. I promise I am leaving a few things out at least.)
We also got Luca's allergy tests back. He's allergic to wheat, oats and soy. Personally I think soy is evil so I am okay with that one, but no oatmeal?! I am seriously going to have to put my chef's hat on, or at least my apron because there is literally wheat and/or soy in everything! We all have gluten intolerance which has been easy to deal with for the most part but Luca is celiac, plus the allergies, so it's a little overwhelming to know I can't eat out spontaneously pretty much ever again. But really I am just thankful that he won't have to suffer anymore as it seems even looking at wheat makes him sick. We are also all lactose intolerant but I need cheese I can't get all radical on that front. I need my goat cheese and my brie and my gouda and my cheddar.
I also painted my room. I don't love the color (a little more prison cell grey than the white i was going for) but it's a vast improvement and I don't have the time or the willpower to get all crazy like I usually do and end up with 4 coats of paint on my walls before I find the perfect shade. It will do for now. And to spruce it up I bought some fresh flowers and dusted off one of my throw rugs I have had in storage for awhile (years). I actually found it when I was in my purging kick, I had forgotten about it (sad). But now it's like new to me again (yay).
The weather has been perfect around here so tomorrow I am having another go at the yard sale. It is suppose to be 80 today! But of course everyone in my house ended up with 102 fevers this week, but I am just hoping that the universe will be good to me and at least not let me get sick until Sunday! Cross your fingers for me and have a happy, happy weekend!
