laundry and dishes and cleaning the floors...

 shh, don't hate me, between these things sometimes it's so quiet, I could probably hear the clock ticking, if I didn't replace it with a silent clock, because I hate the sound of a ticking clock.  (It just sounds like your life is ticking away, tick tock, tick tock...I hate it.)

Anyway, I'm going out and about with Abigail in a few hours, things to return, and such.  A big weekend is coming up, a couples' conference, yay!  I tried on some of my dresses, and ugh.  Now, I'd ream out one of my daughters for saying the same thing, but I don't like myself very much.  Partly I don't care, but the part that does seem to care is still alive and well, and dang it, I am just not listening to her!!  I've previously mentioned that I have regained approximately 25 pounds.  25 pounds!  (I was going to be the anomaly, the one who LOST weight during Covid, oh yes I was.  Then, wait, what happened?!).   I've been holding steady, still maintaining a 70+ pound loss through the years, but it WAS 95 pounds, almost a hundred!  Oh well.  I am not giving up of course, but when you try something on and look in the mirror, dang.  but, who really cares?

So I have a few dresses to choose from, then I thought about footwear...and yeah, it'll be Birkenstocks.  I have my shiny "new" ones, only two years old, ha.  I have to be comfortable, I cannot wear any kind of heel anymore.  I have some spiffy boots, but ugh, too warm still for me, I have shorts on right now.  

No one really cares anyway, it's not like when GASP, someone went to the White House if flip flops.  

Nowadays, people wear slippers and pajama pants to Walmart (but still dress up a bit for Target, ha)

We're making pizza for dinner, but I'll just have leftover butter chicken from last night, as I try to stay away from the pizza dough.  I can make a really good almond flour/mozz.cheese crust, hmmm, maybe I'll do that.  

I am not going to get into a Covid rant today, but I will leave you with a few our county, there are 23 people hospitalized, 12 UNvax, 11 Vaxxed.  There were 47 new cases reported, 33 unvaccinated, 14 vaccinated...(I think it's strange that almost equal # of un/vax are hospitalized...). 

Suggestion:  listen to Dr. Peter McCullough...he has some common sense.  

I'll leave it at that, and bye for now!

I've gained 12 during COVID so I understand. I don't wear heels anymore either and BIrkies are the best! Don't be so hard on yourself! So many folks love you... and Jesus loves you more than anyone... Just the way you are. xo
