I have been wanting to post pics of my freshly mowed lawn (which was an adventure, let me tell you!) but I have had very little time to do so. Yes, I mowed my own lawn :) My dear BIL had to drain the gas tank after I inadvertantly poured the wrong oil into it the wrong way, so I am forever in his debt...again....
Anywhoo, the lawn was mowed and I realized after the rain this weekend it will need it again soon. I will be getting in quite the workout!
On that note, I have gained 4 pounds since I moved. This is not a good thing. I have to get my nerves and my comfort eating under control for goodness sake. Certainly won't be impressing my date on Saturday night unless I do. What's that? You didn't know I had a date? Yes, it is true! I am meeting a man that I have been talking to online and by phone for a little over a month. He seems like he is very sweet and we have spoken at length for an hour or more at a time over the past few weeks. I am not getting excited about this, as I am only looking for someone to "hang" with. No deep commitments for me yet! Trying to be cool about this dating thing. Not that I ever was. Seriously, I could take it or leave it right now, so don't expect to be hearing of any wedding plans anytime soon. I didn't mention him before because I wanted to see how it panned out. I have already had two dates that were very odd and left me feeling a bit peevish. Apparantly, some men on the online site I belong to are preying on newly divorced or separated women. Luckily, I found that out quick enough to see right through their schemes. Seriously, a 23 year old emailing a 39 year old has got to raise a few red flags! Who are they kidding? I put them in their place, though. And the guys my age that want to rush right out for drinks and "fun" - they just need to grow up. Ok, off my soap box now.
So, in the spirit of getting myself back on track, I am going back to Induction for Atkins. I have been meaning to do it for a few weeks, but it is definitely time. Then, I have to figure out where in my hectic schedule I can fit in my work outs. That has been the hardest part. Although getting up earlier is probably the key. I just need to work it all out.
Took Dino for a hair cut last night. He wanted a mohawk in the worst way. He made me ask Mr. HKG first, to be sure he was "allowed" to have one as a karate student. That seemed to make Mr.HKG very happy that Dino even thought about him. Of course, he approved. And I wanted to take a picture of it and post it, but we didn't have time last night by the time we got home. Sigh! Where did all that time I used to have go?
Ok, need to get to work. I'll be posting again regularly, I hope!
Oh, and knitting is non-existent these days. I have it with me, I just can't seem to cast-on. Perhaps my feeling of being a bit overwhelmed is hindering me. I guess I just have to make like the commercial and JUST DO IT! I really want to make a summer shrug for over tank tops. It's not going to knit itself :) Ta-ta!
