Hello, My Name is Anna...and this is Day 1
Yesterday was a perfect day for me. You'd have to understand the inner mechanics of my brain to know what a perfect day is...not because it was a sunny day, nor a day filled with fabric...but, in fact is a day where my brain is being fed information (OMG...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree!) and I receive lots of good information that helps me figure out what the next step will be. I AM a totally goal oriented person. I think I might have been a greyhound dog in a former life and someone put the bunny on the track in front of me.
After dealing with some issues related to the recent events in our family's life I headed to the dentist to get a new set of retainers. Here I am AARP and yes, I do wear retainers. But, this small step in doing something that is necessary for healthy teeth I started down the path of "what else can I do." The next stop was Woolies. Some of my favorite people. Joyful, informative and supportive. 2 of my fellow woolies are also on the fabric diet...so there was a lot of conversation about how good "THEY" felt about the fabric diet. #$%^ I wonder if they got home to THIS in their mailbox. The fabric devil does tempt...I could just picture myself in the alley behind the quilt store, dirty...clutching this catalog...NOOOOO I AM in control and since the first of the year I seem to have more money in my checkbook!
So I pondered...if I could do this for a quarter...and in fact, I am making lots of progress on my pile of projects...what else could I do? Sitting next to Marilyn I got to pick her brain about retirement...my dream state of being. I don't care what Suzi Orman says...I want to retire and I want to do it NOW. But...then I am not impulsive when it comes to what I want to do but methodically planning for success, the sooner the better. Sooooo....here it comes...Marilyn said the best investment for retirement is...good health. %^&* not a bigger stash. Which means...I am back on Weight Watchers. I mean "REALLY" on WW, not just stash building weight watchers. But point counting...what do you mean that a rib eye steak is 20 points!!! kinda weight watchers. Along with my UFO log...I will be adding a weight loss log...Why you ask? (or maybe you could give a rats a**) I hate WW meetings...I barely survive the 1st Sat. BOM meetings and they are giving me free fabric. But some accountability is good and so I will do it in writing to myself and whoever else cares.
Enjoy the slide show...lots of eye candy!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
