I cannot believe it is 11:42

Our whole day is running late.  Nicholas is still taking his morning nap, at almost noon.  Patrick is still upstairs sleeping.  (he caught the dreaded man cold.)  Ruby and I have been down in the basement cleaning and purging fabric!  Yay!

I have another rule for myself that I'm implementing next week.  It might be the hardest yet.  I am also going to measure my body today...I wish I would have 4 weeks ago.  Even if there isn't much weight loss, I can definitely see small changes in the way my clothes fit.  I need to document that for myself. 

Either way, I've been exercising for 4 weeks and the benefits have been amazing.  I don't remember feeling this good about it in the past but I also started in the late summer.  Exercising in winter probably has twice the benefit, don't you think? 

That's not to say I am not sick of winter.  Let's be clear about that.  ;)

I shouldn't leave you hanging about my new rule.  It's not that it's secret, I just haven't worked out the kinks yet.  Something like, "no more thrifting for vintage stuff or fabric unless I list 5 items on etsy (per week) or sew one thing to try and sell that week."  Something like that.  We'll see what I come up with as I mull it over this weekend.  I just see all this cool stuff piling up for "someday" and someday really has to be "now" or I'm just going to chuck it all.

Ruby and I are having a date tomorrow...going to see Gnomeo and Juliet.  Looks so cute.  (I always love reading about Teresa's dates with her boys and miss that with my two big kids.) 

Alright.  Have a super awesome weekend!  LIKE, TOTALLY RAD!!!

(enthusiasm is fake but sentiment is real)
