Today was one of those happy/sad days. I was a sub for 4th grade learning support, and I had some of my old kiddos. I love seeing my old kids. One of the girls had an old yearbook from where I used to teach, and I almost lost it in front of her. I miss my kids so much.
I did really well with eating today. There was a baby shower at the school where I was subbing, and all kinds of treats were on the faculty room table. I didn't eat a single one at lunch! Instead, when I was done with my lunch, I got out a piece of gum and drank some more water. But what's funny is that I didn't feel like I had to tell myself a gazillion times "don't eat the treats. Don't eat the treats." Instead, it was *almost* a natural reaction. I'm feeling so good and I just don't think I want to *not* feel good!
My crafts have been coming along really well! I am working on some fish for the humane society - here are a few.
I've also been really getting into making cards. I did a birthday card and an engagement card for a few friends.
I started a running list of projects I'd like to do; if I don't keep a list, I end up buying everything in sight at the craft store! And while the hubs supports me doing my crafts and actually likes to see what I do, he also is keeping me in check with how much I'm spending on it. I have a few home projects on the list - recovering some lampshades, spray painting some old lamp bases, and making some tea towel pillows.
Off to drink some water and work on my cards!
