My Progress!

I feel icky

Obviously, our picture today is brought to you in my pledge to post eye candy when I can't think of a clever picture to represent today's post. Our eye candy today is a Mr. Robson Green. I've recently started watching a BBC series he stars in called "Wire in the Blood." If you like mysteries, you'll probably love these stories. I don't necessarily LOVE mystery shows, but I'm hooked on these. He plays the lead character, a criminal psychologist who helps the local PD profile and track serial killers. Anyway...not your traditional eye candy pic I know, but he is my current crush for the day so I thought I'd share :)
After yesterday's post. I had such a good start on positivity didn't I? Perhaps I should have sent that post to my SSN support list and posted a different kind of post here. I know most of you can't relate to tgt, but it is all kind of mixed up in why I'm where I'm at right now and every once in a while, it bleeds over into this part of my life. Please know that I do care about Erik. As I've said before, he's decent guy who made several bad decisions for all the right reasons and we are BOTH trying to see where we are at after the fall out. Fortunately for us, we are managing much better than most people in our situation.

Ok, enough about that. Today and tomorrow are my days off my main job. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to stay motivated Today and get some stuff done around the house. Lately, I've been sleeping all day, but that was during the worst of my holiday depression. I am feeling better today, but still not all that motivated to be very productive. I have some work I have to get done on some scrapbooking projects. I have two mini albums that have been commissioned, a clipboard, and a cookie sheet calendar. Did I ever give you guys the link to my etsy shop? If you want to see some of the stuff I have there go to . Some of the other stuff I have to work on is just getting some sample layouts uploaded to my website, upload some premade album templates for etsy,etc. Enough to keep me more than busy over the next few days. I also want to finish up my challenge jar :)

Thanks to everyone again for the challenges! I am going to be taking Mzchef's challenge to drink 8 glasses of water today. I have been living on ginger ale and coke lately (yes reg makes me ill so if I go off soda....not because of the taste, it must be something in the sweetener or something.. it's mostly cold turkey) so I think this is a good challenge for me.

Uggh, I can hear the wind blowing outside, its dark...we are expecting some pretty severe weather for texas. Definitely the sort of weather that makes you want to crawl back in bed. I think the REAL challenge is going to be not sleeping all day lol. Wish me luck!

As usual,comment below or leave me a challenge to add to my Challenge Jar :)

Hey! I'm glad to see you are back to regular posting. I really love reading your blog. Here's my idea for your jar: when you are standing, tighten your core muscles and straighten your posture. Hold for as long as possible.

Have a great day and keep posting!

OMG I LOVE WIRE IN THE BLOOD. watching it with netflicks at the moment. I love me some BBC dramas that is for sure.

And... OFF THE COKEs! Naughty lady. How many spoons of sugar are in one??? seven or ten?! Go and eat a spoonful of sugar (or two even) instead of drinking the liquid death!!!!!

Stay warm tonight...that cold front is here for a few days... poor old tx!!
