Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

The switch is in the off position

I'm having an off couple of days. I'm very good at handling certain kinds of stress; others not so much. Like change. I am very, VERY bad at handling change. I want everything to stay just the way I like it. And when it doesn't, I guess I show how unsettled I am by getting snotty. I'm not really TRYING to be snotty, that's just how I show it. But then I feel totally guilty PLUS I'm still unsettled, so basically all I do is complicate things for myself. Sigh.

I've already decided that I will have an outstanding day tomorrow if it kills me, so I guarantee I will have something better later. Until then ... not much to see here.

(Oh, wait, there's this: Last night, the thing that finally got me to chill out was to get in the tub with a popsicle and US Weekly. The popsicle? Edy's tropical fruit smoothie, only the most DELICIOUS guilt-free popsicle ever. Consider that my PSA for the day.)

Hey! I used to make my kids eat popcicles in the bathtub in their bathing suits (because frankly, I was a little afraid of letting them eat popcicles nekkid - issues, I know). All that dribbled mess was so easy to clean up.

But your bath sounds divine. And thanks for the points tips! I did really good yesterday and so far I'm doing great today. Of course, it's only 9:00 and all I've had is some water and coffee. I'm sure I've already lost five pounds!

Okay, so I'm wayyyy behind.

Loved your glasses, by the way, and your eyes are amazing. Are you going to nationals too? I want to meet you as much as I want to meet Manic. All the Fly Girls will be there ready to par-tay;))

I know how it is to be in a funk. Hope your day gets better.

It's good to be snotty once in a while...keeps everyone on their toes. But I can't imagine you staying snotty for long:)

And will you look at that? It's March already woohoo spring can't be far behind...the calendar says so.

Swish--hope today is the BEST day ever for you! ANd I think there's a surge in Edy's popsicle sales now!

We HAVE to go to Nationals--I want to become an honorary Fly Gal!

In their bathing suits ... ha ha ha. That is so cute.

Thanks, Kari! I don't know about nationals ... Manic and I have been talking about it!

LOL, Trish ... I'm gonna be like, "Well, Trish says it's OK, sooo TOO BAD!" :)
