It's Time

Well, I've been feeling a little down lately, stressing about things I can't change and things I can and all that stuff. I decided this morning that it's time to stand up and take responsibility for the things I can change and have screwed up and set things right again. It's time to be productive again and not waste all my time watching tv and being lazy. Granted-I WILL miss the obscene knitting time, but I have to reward myself with knitting time after actually accomplishing something, like working out an obscene amount. Like I just did. I swear I feel like I am not going to be able to move at all tomorrow, but it was worth it.
On the knitting front, I am done one of my criss cross gloves and just have a little ways to go on the second. I'm very excited to have them done! And so soon! Then I will try steam blocking them and maybe they will be all ready to wear tomorrow-not that I'm going anywhere :) I don't know what to work on now, though. I still have the Sophie bag that I started, but I just don't seem to feel like working on that RIGHT now, so I need to find something else to occupy me. And make some more jewelery too.
Today is a good day, I think. A new beginning.

that's what I'm doing. If I'm not gonna be working I should at LEAST get my butt to the gym.

it's so hard to self motivate and organize when you are not working. i totally feel ya. props for working out, i need to do more of that myself.

re: the dresser, it's actually a lot of fun. i have to get more acrylic paint sealer stuff to make sure it doesn't all come off when i am done.

re: pay it forward, welcome to the gifting madness, please email me your home adress to either my ravelry or my gmail (

Good for you sister!
A new start in the new year is corny, but it's a good thing :)

Well that's great then!
I wish you the best of luck -
maybe we can compare notes as I've started out with a personal trainer on the 1st.
And a pink kitchen is just my all time dream!!!
