Operation GIT has been full of so much fail this week. Monday had lunch with a girlfriend. Tuesday was a working lunch, followed by a birthday dinner for my FIL, followed by frozen yogurt. Wednesday another working lunch, followed by a reception with loads of food at work. Thursday was a blessedly normal day but then Friday was a birthday dinner at a greasy spoon for a friend, followed by ice cream. And LAST NIGHT was a Halloween party with enough food to feed a small country. As of Friday my weight miraculously hadn’t changed (I’ve been exercising my butt off) but holy crap I have SO FAR exceeded my body’s tolerance for rich, fattening, or junky food it’s not even funny. I don’t want a single bite of anything NOT HEALTHY until Thanksgiving (which, admittedly, is only like 3 and a half weeks. Holy crap!). GIVE ME VEGETABLES! I’m making a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup for tonight. Here’s to getting back to normal.
Things have been kind of fail on the writing front too this week. I wound up writing only on one day. The two intensive working days at work destroyed my attention span and left me with the focusing ability of a gerbil on crack. I’m not overly worried about it. I’m not really stuck, I just haven’t been able to settle enough to really write. That changes today. Hubs is off to play golf and I’ll have some peace and quiet and lack of distractions.
If I get motivated, I’ll do some channeling of my heroine today. She’s renovating an antebellum mansion to turn it into a B and B. I was thinking about going ahead and starting my embossed wallpaper backsplash. So that will entail a quick trip to Lowes to pick up paint. And I still need to make the template (I figure it’s easier to make a template out of other paper than to try to get all the creases right on my pretty wallpaper). We’ll see how I feel when I’m done with my tea. I might just do the template, then spend the rest of the day on the book.
We’re doing another open house this coming week. It’s Homecoming, so the last shot at the football crowd for anybody who might want a weekend Bulldog house. We don’t actually expect anything to come of it, and we’ll be taking it off the market come December until next spring. Then we’ll at least have a few months of peace until the circus starts again.
Meanwhile, I’m trying to sort out my own gluten free French baguette recipe. I’m thinking I’ll have to do a loaf bread instead as I don’t have a baguette baking pan (something to add to my Christmas list). Maybe ciabatta rolls….
