The last few days I’ve just really been unmotivated to do anything at all. I’ve totally slacked on housework the last week, and I haven’t really exercised since I think last Wednesday. I just don’t want to do anything.Today I attempted to get something done and I kind of succeeded. I got up and I paid all my bills that are due now. I vacuumed the house- most of it anyway. I dumped the laundry out on the bed so I have to put it away before tonight. I sorted it into mine and his piles. I bought dog food because the girls were going to be very upset tonight if I didn’t. I spent about 35 minutes cutting up that huge watermelon I’ve had in the fridge for three weeks into smaller chunks and packing them into containers. I did the same with the cantaloupe I’ve had in there for two weeks as well. I read about 40 pages of my book. I worked on preparing pattern files for download sales and getting them listed in my shop. I added custom items and options on some other things on the shop. Stop by the shop people! A lot of what I did involved me sitting on my butt, but I still managed to get some things done. I also went out back to the craft room and did quite a bit of beading today, working on a long-abandoned project from about three years ago. If I stick with it, I may finish it tomorrow and get started on the other half of it Thursday.
Food yesterday was so-so. I was a little higher on calories than I wanted to be thanks to not thinking through the idea of liquid calories. Still, considering the ramen was kind of randomly tossed in at midday, I didn’t do so badly. Here’s Monday’s eats.

In my hurry to get my post done last night, I left off quite a few things. While I was at my mom’s, besides collecting all those books into boxes, I cleaned up my old room a bit too. When my mom’s boyfriend put ducting into my old room from the cooler, he took out my closet rod from the end, took all the clothes out, took out all the games, and all the blankets. All that stuff was piled up on my bed, which ended up in a mound of crap about 3 feet high. I put the hanging rod back in place, hung the clothes back up (though really they all need to be laundered as they have plaster dust all over them), put the games and blankets back in there, and threw away two bags of trash. There are some clothing items I really should have bagged up to get rid of, but I really didn’t feel like sorting through all of it any further. Maybe next time I go out I’ll do that. Still, I did make some progress on it.
We also talked about my grandma. Apparently, even though my mom was making inquiries about putting her in a home about 6 months ago, my aunt and uncle decided to move her in with them. After 2 days of cajoling, they finally convinced her to go with them, and everything was fine. They had bought furniture and set up a room for her, and brought all her clothes with her. They even brought her dog (my mom would have taken him if not). Then the next morning she woke up and my aunt was gone. She immediately flipped out, and started screaming and throwing stuff around, having a fit and saying she was going to call the cops, that they kidnapped her. My aunt had to come home from where ever she was, and eventually they got her and all her stuff in the car and drove her home again. After they dropped her off, she was there almost an entire day before my Mom knew she was back because no one freaking told her. :o
