Lately, I feel that I don’t have a creative bone in my body. I haven’t taken any photos in weeks, and my scrapbook hasn’t had any page additions since July. I’m at a loss for ways to spice up and decorate the apartment. Where has my imagination gone!?! I need to find it.
In other news, I’m looking into buying a Kindle or Nook as an e-reader. I’m not sure why I really feel the need for one of these electronic books, since I buy less than 10 books a year. Maybe I should just wait until my shopping urge dies down and save myself a couple hundred bucks.
I’ve lost 10.2 pounds since May. While this is good, my goal was to have lost fifteen pounds by today. Oh, well. It’s still a victory. I’m setting a new goal for weight loss that I plan to reach by the end of 2010. My goal is to lose 13.6 pounds. It is a reasonable goal that I know I can accomplish. My previous goal of fifteen pounds would have been met if I had not gone so off course on my eating plan this past month. 13.6 pounds/16 weeks = 0.85 pounds per week that I will be aiming to shed. Wish me luck! More importantly, wish me self control!!!
The feeling of homesickness has been paying me some visits these past few weeks. I know that’s just part of living away from family, and I’ve accepted it. Still, it’s not a fun feeling. Luckily, I have a fantastic get-away planned! It isn’t for a few more months, but it is definitely giving me a light at the end of the tunnel.
Painters will be here soon to add a little color to one of the walls in my dining room. Maybe this will be the boost I’ve been looking for in the creativity department. I hope so! Well, I’m off to run some errands.
