Spring Has (Officially) Sprung!

Happy 1st day of spring, everyone! I have been doing a bit of redecorating and spring cleaning in my craft room. My fabric was getting OOC!!! I am scared at how much I squirrel away when I finally DO learn to sew. Yeesh.

We're going to see Ryan's family tomorrow which will be nice. Q will be busting out her new and springy cropped coral polka dotted cardi, so I thought it only fitting she have a new barrette to go with (I love the round vintage button from Barbara and my friend Noreen gave me the hearts):

I've been rather schizo feeling lately. One minute I'm happy go lucky and crafting and making banana bread (in the oven as we speak), the other I'm feeling agitated and depressed. I've really been at a crossroads lately with some of my friends. Some I've pretty much cut ties with due to melodrama and just general weirdness (I'm too old for that shit). Others are still there, but I feel like I have to walk on eggshells around them, and I hate it. Hard to explain. I can guarantee, however, that if you are one of my IRL friends reading this, I'm NOT talking about you, so don't worry. I digress (sorry)...

You also may not have noticed that I have been remiss in posting any OSB updates. Yeahhhhh, I was kinda on sabbatical from weight loss measures, but I am back on track again. In fact, I just received my 10 lb ribbon from Weight Watchers today. This week alone, I lost 3 lbs, so yay me. :) I try to deny it, but the only thing that works for me is something that supplies the food (ie Nutrisystem). I really love the Wii Fit too. It's a little disconcerting to think that I probably will not reach my goal until the fall. I'm shooting for reaching my goal by November 20 which is my bro's bday (whoot) AND the opening of New Moon (heh).

I have a lottttt of weight to lose, but all I can do is keep trying and be happy thinking of the flowers coming up in my yard. Very soon these will be all along my side fence!
Happy weekending all!!! xo

Good for you! So my birthday is your weight loss goal date?

I'm glad someone in the family is using Wii Fit -- we certainly aren't. I'm just using (a) "From the Couch to 5K in Six Weeks," a running plan I found on Lifehacker, and (b) an iPhone app called Lose It. Finally -- new technology is helping to make me skinny instead of fat!

Wow, congrats on the ten pounds! That is awesome, especially since you lost it in the wintertime. Maybe it's just me, but my body really wants to gain weight when it's cold outside.

As far as friends go, you need to do what is best for you. Life is too short to hold onto relationships that are no longer rewarding. It's sad, but sometimes people change and friendships that used to work stop working. It's nobody's fault, it just happens.

It is funny, I check in on your blog now and then but I really had to comment on this entry! :-P I am with you on the the weight loss thing and the friend thing. I am trying to lose weight also, down 20 since Nov, would like lots more. But good start on 10! And as for the friends, ain't nobody as a good a friend as you! That is how I feel..I often ask, why can't I have a friend like me? People do change, grow up and apart, priorities people! Girls just suck sometimes. Oops, did I say that? It sounds like you know what I know what I mean? LOL
