Cleaning House

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was pretty productive and in more ways then one. Saturday morning I got in a big fight with HG and told him I was done being taken advantage of and that I have done nothing but help him so that bridge is burned as far as I am concerned. You can try and help someone until you are blue in the face but if they are not ready to change, then it is basically a waste of time... lesson learned.

Once I had the apt. to myself I was in heaven. I was cleaning and organizing and purging, hooray! Spent most of the day doing that and then I started to get ready for the Blinky's Christmas party. I got there about 5:30ish and was done and home in bed by 10:00 <--- I am a fuddy duddy! I ate dinner there which was tri-tip salad and a roll. I did not imbibe in alcohol either, which is probably why I didn't stay longer.

Here is a picture I took of myself. I felt good and I got lots of compliments too which always makes a gal feel special. 

I recently got a 4" feather bed that goes on top of the mattress. It is absolutely divine to sleep on it. It feels like you are floating on a cloud. Yesterday was the 1st time that I had to make it by myself. I thought it would be rather difficult but it worked out just fine. Between the flannel sheets and the feather bed, it is amazingly cozy! Here is a picture of it made and then also with my Northern Exposure Moose. Do any of you remember Northern Exposure from the 1990s?

I did not do any formal exercise but did a lot of moving around between doing laundry and moving furniture etc. so I am actually a little sore this morning but in a good way. Speaking of exercise, I still need to utilize the Personal Training sessions that I bought in August. I haven't used them because I fell at the hospital and then had the sciatica so this is the first real opportunity to use them. I will call today to make an appt.

This is just a random picture from yesterday. I have been thinking about walking in the mornings because I am up early so I got this hat to help keep my ears warm.  I wanted to see what I looked like with it on (not that I really care at 5:00 a.m.) but as long as it keeps me warm. Until next time...


  1. Love the photos! People see your big heart- that's a good attribute though IMO. I am so thinking of walking early too; I was invited by a couple of women at my church to join them at Planet fitness at 5:30 AM and I just need to do it!

  2. Hi Katie. Red really suits you, you look fantastic in the photos. Have a good week.

  3. Bright colours just make your eyes does being happy!

  4. Glad you are taking charge of your life - GO KATIE J!!! :)

  5. I'm a new reader and you are inspiring:) I love how you have taken control of your life. Keep up the good work girl!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
