The State of Amy....

Weight Loss:
Another successful week of eating healthy and exercising (I hate words with S's and C's- they're a bear for me to spell: Exercising, License, etc).

Drum roll, please....

I lost another 2.5 pounds for a total loss of 9 pounds in three weeks. Wheeeeeeee!

I have more energy and I don't feel as if I'm wanting for food - so what could be better?

After finishing the intricate afghan, I thought it'd be nice to work on a mindless project. I wanted to make Ona a small afghan using a 'mini pom-pom' yarn paired with a worsted weight. It's just simply a seed stitch border and then garter stitch body (knit, knit, knit, knit, knit.... (sigh)... you get the picture). I'm bored silly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I tried to set that aside last night and start on a scarf for entry into the fair. My concentration just wasn't there and I ended up tearing it out twice before putting yarn and needles away for the night. I was really afraid I was getting a migraine - because they throw my concentration off beforehand. But nothing yet (Yay).

I finished my fourth edit of Breather a couple of weeks ago and had good intentions of starting the first edit of Sonny Boye, but I just haven't gotten to it. I'm feeling the urge to write/edit again, though, so I'll probably either jump into that soon or write something short.

Mark has me reading his favorite series of books, The Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks. It's addicting. *nods*

I guess the only new item to report is that poor Mark has been having wicked migraines. He missed almost two full days of school because of them this week. So I left work early on Monday to take him to his doctor and then again yesterday to take him to his chiropracter. Chiropracter said his C2 was out and his muscles at the base of his skull were so tight they were actually pulling his skull back.

No headache for him today. Yay!
