I looked through my last several posts and noticed a theme, "write about anything that has nothing to do with sewing, so I didn't have to admit to not sewing anything". I still haven't been in my sewing room. At least this time I had a good excuse.
1. I was working full-time and attending school full-tme. How does one do that? Take an accelerated program, with a new class every 5-weeks and you are considered full-time. I barely had time to think and my weight ballooned up another 15-20 lbs.
2. If that wasn't enough, my dear mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer around June 15th, and she passed away August 15th. Any Catholics out there would understand the significance of August 15th, at 3:00PM. If you are not Catholic, I won't bore you with the details. Needless to say, it's been a tough few months, and the holidays are even tougher. But, I feel her support and presence with me, and that helps.
Now, most of the extra weight is gone. I can go back to getting off the regular extra weight I carry around. ;o) I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I'm going to make 2010 a different year. 2008-2009 I went to school, and attained a 3.963 GPA (darn history teacher, who gave me an A- and blew my 4.0) ;o)
In 2010 I'm going back to the gym, and I'm going to look up the lady with whom I had planned to take fitting and sewing classes. I'll just sew for the size I am now, and stop planning to sew when I lose more weight. Maybe this attitude will make me actually lose weight. Murphy's Law, you know.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I'll be back in 2010.
