Paint and Metal and Writing and Making Messes

5 Gratitudes
Healthy family and kitties
Mortgage is paid
Health insurance (which paid for my visit and new glasses)
Best friend who puts up with me flaking on plans when I'm not feeling well
Well stocked studio allowing me to make ANYTHING I want even if I don't have any $ right now

middle o' the night and I'm watching Weeds while surfin' the net
looking for something to keep me occupied. Weeds is great, but I am a hopeless multitasking media whore. I need to watch the videos for my online class, but somehow I keep putting it off. I'm just getting better from the flu and really need to get out of the house.

5 gratitudes
Hubby that supports me and loves me no matter what
Parents, hubby, pets and friends are healthy
Roof over our heads and the mortgage is paid
New supplement that MAY help my pain (fingers crossed)
About to put a deposit on a summer house on my fave (hidden) gem of an island :)
*heck - I can do more than 5!
Watched Scott Pilgrim VS the World and it was GOOD!
Projecting Alice In Wonderland tonight on my new projector. Drive-in livingroom fun!
Awake early enough for church but kinds fuzzy headed? Not sure I'll go cause I don't want to drive like this. Do wNT TO hang with mom though.
Last day of Bath & Body Works sale. Time to bust out the gift card
While I'm at it might wander next door and see if I can find the eyeshadow palettes I need or maybe new curl friendly hair products. The Terax and Tigi are $$$
Bargains at the art stores? Or stay home and clean the studio? I know the fun answer, but I also know the practical answer.
Make copies of Dresden Dolls sheet music and practice not that paino is back in livingroom.
Gotta my hair cut/ nothing drastric. Just healthier ends. Will wait a few days before dying it.
Time to download kitty pix to the computer. I want to order preints and fiddle around in photoshop with them.

this is from one of their articles:
Research shows that a perpetual lack of sleep can:

•Undermine the body's ability to fight off disease.

•Reduce the quality and quantity of your work

•Mimic the symptoms of impaired glucose tolerance (which can lead to diabetes and hypertension).

•Hinder weight loss and/or cause weight gain

•Impair concentration

•Cause disorientation

•Slow down the body's reaction time

•Increase moodiness and irritation

•Lead to depression

that should be enough evidence for me to REALLY work on better sleep. Just now, I went to bed, read for awhile then G came to bed. After 5 mins. with the lights out I just couldn't lie there anymore. All I could feel or think about was the pain in my legs. So.. I got up and went to the livingroom to find some pain pills. I really DO TRY to sleep but either my body or my mind always get in the way. I maay have to do a short course of ambien or something. My doctor seems to think that if I can change my sleep for a couple weeks then I could stop the pills because I would have a habit and going to bed earlier would be easy.

Started packing up the Christmas decorations today. Only got a box packed up with my Boyds bears. I really love the small Boyds - wonder why I haven'r gotten one in 2 (3?) years now? Guess I really don't go in those little country type stores that sell them any more.

G has been a little under the weather. Even though I feel like we have plenty of food in the house so much of it has the potential to make him sick. The one thing we're out of is yogurt and that would've really been good for him tonight. I did offer him a variety of choices for dinner and when he finally said "you don't have to do that" I knew he wanted the chocken parmesan. So, I made him a little caserole dish of it and he really enjoyed. That makes me happy! I don't cook too much, but when he goes back to work I really want to make sure I do that for him.

I've been having this weird feeling lately. I look at things I like and consider buying them. However, I've been able to tell myself, "you have enough shoes" (makeup, bags, art supplies). That would be great but it kinda leaves me hanging and feeling a little uncomfortable. How do I transition into doing things instead of buying things?

STUFF TO DO SUNDAY: buy drygas, see Mom, pickup yoga mat, bananas & yogurt at TJs, put away decorations, ebay something, order filter for dishwasher

NEW MAC Makeup Brush set
great for gift or for treating yourself :)

letter to Santa
Santa, I've been such a good girl this year. I hope you will consider some of these items I am dreaming of...

clearly, my fave movie of the year

since I refuse to go to any stadium shows anymore, I find this U2 DVD necessary

I also require this little projector. Glen will NOT be allowed to use it

Of course, I need a yoga mat or I'll NEVER practice yoga regularly.

PIANO MUSIC! 'Cause I finally have my piano and can preactice :)

typical Monday

Went to Dad's early today and stayed way too long. I did get to see my niece's dog who just had his eye out a few weeks ago. He seems to be getting along just fine. I truly hope nothing happens to his other eye. This i just one reason why I'm against pure bred pets. Why don't people want to adopt from shelters? I just don't get it.

By the time I was driving home my back and knee hurt horribly. Just when I got in the house and was debating a day in my jammies i got a phone call from my doc's office saying they could fit me in in half an hour. So, we (Glen & I) hopped in the car and went right away. There were several infants in the waiting room, but luckily not loud ones! Glen came in with me 'cause I always feel like i forget stuff the doc says. My chubby. gay doctor is just awesome BTW. I'd love to set him up with my gay boyfriend! Anyway, everything seems set up and I will probably be in much pain Thursday. I have a stack of Weeds DVDs, Molly Ringwald's book and Portia deRossi's book. Now I just need frozen yogurt and I'll be set for being stuck home for a few days.
