Is it Tuesday already? @ 06:47 am

Current Mood: bored

The drywall in Alex's new room has been repaired for a reasonable price. Step One done. Next is painting, but I kinda think we should pull the old carpet up first. Not because we have any intention of saving it, but because wouldn't it allow the painters to paint clear to the floor? I'm very concerned about finding decent painters. The last guys who did Justice's room were real lemons.

Yesterday I slept. I took a three hour nap in the afternoon, then went to bed at 8:30 (though after about 1:00 I kept waking up every hour or so to check the clock, then rolled over and went back to sleep). Don't know why I needed so much sleep. No catching up to do and no big stresses to deal with. Hope I'm not coming down with something.

It's raining. That sure isn't news. The wind that is expected today or tomorrow might be interesting.

I did nothing to lose weight yesterday.

Gods, I'm boring.

Monday, Monday @ 08:07 am

Current Mood: grumpy

Please excuse any spelling errors or whatever; I've misplaced my computer glasses. Have looked in all the reasonable places, and also in the refrigerator and the cat box.

Didn't lose any weight last week. Sigh. Well, at least I didn't gain any. Adding up the first three weeks I've been on Nutrisystem, I am still ahead of my 1.5 pounds/week loss goal. Only 1160 calories consumed yesterday; 37 minutes on the Wii Fit Plus for 107 calories.

Waiting for the workmen to come to repair the drywall in Faeon's old room, which will now become Alex's bedroom. She could be moving in as early as next spring if she is able to get emancipated. Anyway, the workmen are now overdue, and haven't even called to get directions to the house. I hate having strangers in my house anyway. Wish they would at least be prompt. Faeon said he will do his best to get out of bed and get over here so I will feel less self-conscious. After all, he is the one who trashed the room. Discovered today while I was cleaning up in there that I will have to have a new door put in. Guess I'll have that done next, before we start painting. More expense. Sigh.
