A Silver lining...

To the not shopping thing, could be that maybe I get lots of scrapping done and use of some of my stash. I was sitting here yesterday looking at my stuff and was thinking of maybe purging some more. I never did sell my lot of paints/glazes, the lot of ribbons, or my stamp set/eyelet setter. So if anyone is interested...let me know. I was thinking of looking through my sticker bin and my rubons bins.

I have found the time to make two LOs in the past week. It pretty much takes me a whole day to finish one because I keep getting up, doing something else, come back to it. Either way, I got them done. Both are "lifts". The one of me and the kids was inspired by a LO in a 2Peas neighbor's gallery...apeainthepod is her username. The second page, I used a Page Maps sketch from the latest issue of Memory Makers. It was a half map, but I did 12x12 and flipped the sketch on its side. I'm really loving both of them! This puts my LO count at 21 I believe.

What else? Tonight we have a dinner at Mi Tierra to go to. It's some kind of "reunion" thing for the Catholic school Miguel attended. I don't really want to go because I have nothing to wear. Don't you ever feel like that? My body is feeling the whole not working out thing and nothing I try on seems to look right or make me feel good. I HATE that! And I HATE shopping for clothes when I feel like this too. I was looking on Craigslist last night for an exercise bike. I found one for $75 and I'm waiting for a reply. I was thinking that maybe that "step" thing I wanted to get might not be the best thing right now since my ankle still hurts when I go up and down stairs. I'm wondering if maybe it wouldn't be easier for my foot to just "pedal". I really didn't feel like my 30-45 minutes a day on the treadmill were doing anything because I wasn't losing as many pounds as I wanted, but I can see and "feel" now that it was doing SOMETHING. Funny how your life can change in just an instant. I wouldn't have thought that night that I was going to slip and fracture my ankle, have to be put out, in pain and immobilized for weeks, then three months later, STILL be in pain. Well, can't change the past...must make the best of it and move on.

Lij comes home today. Don't know what our plans are for the weekend. That bbq we were going to has been postponed for next weekend. We still need to run some errands and I want to go get my glasses...don't know what else.

Okay, that's all I can think later :)

Blogger isn't letting me upload pics right now, so I'll try again later :)

What kind of paints do you use? I have a few of the heidi swapp ones that I got whem my LSS decided to clear them out. I might be interested in the ribbon too(not that I need more ribbon lol)

The excercise bike will probably be great. We had on of the trainer things you attach to the regular bike to turn it into an excercise bike. I really liked it when I wasnt tooo lazy to do it. Works different muscles than just walking. I read somewhere that if you have thighs you want to get rid of that the bikes are better for you than walking. Now if I could just get myself on the bike(I know that trainer is out in the shed somewhere!)

I guess I missed this post. I didn't see the pics of Lij with his big pop. LOVE all the LOs. I'm going to go finish one of my lifts now:)
