More Random

But no pictures today!

First exciting bit of news is that I'm back at the gym. I went on Saturday with some prompting from my cousins who were visiting, and I forgot how great it makes me feel. Every. Single. Time. I get it when they say that people who are depressed should exercise - and how hard it is to convince those people to do it. It IS hard to get off your ass. And in my case, I feel like I don't get anything out of it (because I don't lose weight) but I do! I slept like a rock last night, and I just feel better after working out. So I'm going to try to stick with this. But not put pressure on myself to do it.

I want the Old Navy Gay Pride shirts for my kids. But they aren't being sold online and only in 26 stores. One is in MA, so I'm going to call and see if I can get them. And no. I don't think I'm using my kids as a political platform. My values, that I'm trying to instill in my children, are based around the rule 'Do unto others as you would have them do onto you'. And our church teaches us to Stand on Side of Love. That is what I do everyday (or at least try to) and I hope to teach my children to do the same. So yep, Cam and Maggie will be wearing those shirts (assuming I can get them) - I feel that we should support a 'big box' retailer that is putting themselves out there for a cause that is controversial

I've gone from someone who used to knit or quilt every day to barely knitting once a week! I'm just not inspired. Besides that it's wicked hot (which has never stopped me from knitting in the past) both kids were refusing to wear ANY sweater/fleece/sweatshirt by the end of the winter - and I'm just not into spending the time to knit something that won't be worn. I'm test knitting a cute stuffed bunny pattern, so I hope that kicks my creative side back into gear!

And finally, I'm starting to worry about what to wear to this wedding I'm going to in India! I need to find a store in the area where I can see what I look like in some of the outfits people are recommending for me.

Yeah for going back to the gym! I'm not there yet...I need to be- but am finding it hard to add anything else to my day. More hours please?

I have been tempted to start working out again, but I never actually DO it.
