I am not sure where I got this one red dress from. It is Asian style and it has all the curves made into the dress and it is just beautiful. Rusty's dad asked me why I never wore the dress. I never thought I looked good in it I guess. Then when my father in law died I wore it to his funeral. I just wanted him to see me in that dress. I hung the dress back in my closet, and it has not been worn since.
Over the weekend we invited to attend another ball. So that makes a total of two balls this year. I have thought about buying a new dress. I rationalize the expense by saying, well I will wear it twice.
This morning I was pouring some frozen blueberries into a cup. That was when it hit me. Instead of buying a new dress, I am going to set a goal of getting back into that red dress. I have been eating a lot better, and I have started swimming again. I know I can do this. *side not: get some frozen blueberries and pour milk over them and then the milk freezes and it like eating blueberry ice cream. It is so good.
Yesterday was so nice. I wish it did not have to end. The waves were great, the surfing was great, and most of all it was an awesome work out. Today I am feeling the side effects of all my swimming. I don't think people realize how hard it is to swim in the ocean. Between the waves and the currents, my legs are hurting.
Another one my goals for this month is to do one pet quilt a month. This is a very achievable goal as long as life does not happen to much. When I accomplish this goal it will give me a really good jump start on stocking the shelter up.
It broke my heart to drop the babies off. They just looked at me like momma what are you doing? When the babies leave the house just seems so empty, so it will take me a while to get use to not having babies here. I know that everything comes in cycles, so soon I will have more babies.
Last night I responded to my moms e mail. I just can't believe the mess I have gotten myself into. I should have spoken up sooner. I guess that is what I get for taking time to really think about how I wanted to say certain things. Then my mom sent me an e mail back. I just looked at. If my mom has a magic pills that she takes to make her think that we are the Brady bunch then I want that pill. She thinks Disney is going to be a great family day. Hello! do you live on this planet? I am not going. I have no idea if Rusty is going. The girls have made it very clear that they will not be with Ryan. Heck most day's the girls can't stand to be around each other. Whatever I won't be there. I have no problems spending Christmas by myself. That just means that I get to do what I want for a change. It also means that I don't have to cook dinner. Go me!
For the most part the house is cleaned up, so I better go run a few errands, and get home so I can have the rest of day to goof and off and do what I want to do.
Life is good
