Little bit about me...

Lately, I’ve been trying to find the old me. It is so darn easy to lose oneself with the stuff that needs to be done with a small child and full time job. I am finding myself with more available time now that The Hubby is home. I am hopping on the treadmill (or walking around the neighborhood) almost every day to help the weight loss. (No, I still haven’t hit that next 5 lb mark that I mentioned in a previous post. Hopefully, I will get there soon.) I am running out of my prepaid WW coupons. I am a bit anxious with the thought that I won’t be going to WW meetings. The meetings really do help if I do find them a bit cheesy or boring at times. They help reset the “week” for me. However, I can’t really seem to be able to justify the money spent on the weekly fee while there are more important bills to pay. I am really hoping that our new health insurance has an option for preventive health steps such as Weight Watchers.

Anyways… back to the topic on hand… Last night, I dug out a cross stitch project that The Hubby bought me ages ago. I haven’t worked on any type of crafts in a long, long time so I’m a bit rusty. Here is a picture of the finished product (minus the frame):

I’m not sure what I am going to do with it once I am done with the project… perhaps give it away as a gift? Or sell it? Will have to ponder that.

The one part, I am having trouble with is keeping the “Inner Nag” on a leash. With everything is going on, I am really trying not to compound it by letting it loose. However, lately, it has been lashing out unexpectedly… mostly when the stress of our financials over runs my thoughts. I just hope that The Hubby realizes that I really am trying. I know that he is not the best of moods lately as anyone who is job searching in today’s market.
