First off, I re-listed the 15 sewing patterns that did not sell on eBay this afternoon. Check them out here. I did sell 11 of them though, so I feel pretty good about that. All of them have been paid too except from one buyer who bought several, and hopefully they will pay up before I go out tomorrow so I can ship all the rest at once.
I was also talking to a friend online and he was asking me when the last time I went on vacation was. I told him about four years ago, when we drove up to Oregon to visit friends, and he asked how nature was up that way. This is one of the photos I shared with him. I took this one standing at the base of a redwood tree in Northern California, not even a particularly gigantic one, looking up to its top. Amazing, right?

Its late, I’m ridiculously tired paired with being in a bit of a food coma from eating way too much at dinner (I’ll get to that) and I’m just realizing this is not going to be a good week for food for me at all. We went out to eat this evening for Mattie’s dad’s birthday dinner, and on Thursday we’ll be going out again, this time with his mom for Mother’s Day. I don’t know where we’re going Thursday, but tonight I went way overboard and just in general fucked up on food all day long. As it is, I’m having one of those days where I feel like food (lots of food) is the answer to everything. I had a good breakfast, but then followed it with junk, followed by fruit (partially dressed as junk) followed by a huge dinner that started with appetizers and ended with a huge burger and a side salad. Its been hours since we ate, and honestly all I can think about is eating something else, even though I’m pretty sure I’ll be sick if I do. Its just one of those days. :(

Hi all. I’m giving you the weekly wrap-up here, but going to gloss over the food diaries for yesterday and today. To put it simply, we ordered a dinner box from a pizza place that had chicken, pizza, and bread sticks. We at all the chicken and half the pizza and bread sticks yesterday, and the rest today. I also ate a lot of other crap today, and I basically used all of my weeklies over these two days. I have 1 Point+ left over at the end of this week. I did track everything though, and I know exactly what kind of damages I did.

Today was a small grocery haul Monday. I stocked our freezer so well last month we really id not need any meat, but I grabbed some chicken thighs because they’re hella cheap, and a package of bratwursts because they taste so good (but insanely unhealthy) squeezed out of their casings, crumbled, and cooked with Zatarain’s dirty rice mix. I got ice cream because I had the extra money this week, and its something we eat more of when the weather is warm. Today, however, was not warm. It was rainy, cold, and windy. I pretty much froze my ass off all day today, though because I was holed up in my craft room all day, I really didn’t notice it. I also didn’t notice today that at 6:45pm, I still had not eaten anything at all, and made an “emergency” run to Subway. I was initially planning on going to Jack in the Box, but all of a sudden I thought of Subway and it won out, no contest.
