Looking at the bright side

Of course, after a good night's sleep, I'm not feeling so whiny today.

I bought my new washer. It's a Kenmore and it's being delivered tomorrow. I hate to spend the money right now, but I will be glad to get rid of my problem-plagued Maytag Neptune. It will be a wonderful relief not to smell mold every time I walk by my laundry room.

My house is still a mess, and I do have 14 women coming to stay here next weekend, but--hey--I've got kids, right? That's what they're for! And I keep telling myself that if my house is less than perfect these wonderful ladies will still be my friends. Right?

I got an encouraging email from a friend this morning suggesting that I try to increase my exercise by 15 minutes a day. She said it helped her lose some weight that wasn't budging after 40 and she also just feels better. I know that I should exercise more; I just need to do it.

My garden is looking fantastic we're going to have lots of zucchini, tomatoes, and peppers. We should also have a nice bunch of turnips and some lovely salads. I still need to get a picture to post.

Ugh, I hate to say it, but I think I'm going to have to exercise even more to get off this plateau I'm on. I am walking longer and longer distances, but I'm not walking everyday, and I think I should probably being doing something everyday. I also should add some weight training. Ugh, I have an allergic reaction to "shoulds". I'll have to think of a new way to view it.

Ah, Jane. Do you REALLY think any of the women coming are going to care if we have to shove a stack of books out of the way to sit down? Or if there's dust or a bathtub that's not immaculate? We're coming for giggling and chocolate and giggling and wine and giggling. Who's going to have time to inspect housekeeping?!?
