The road to hell is paved with good intentions

I had every intention of throwing a post up yesterday sometime, but the day got away from me. A lot happened, most of which I can't really talk about yet.

I had an unusual walk in the morning. Knowing I had to leave for an appointment at 1 p.m., I was on a schedule and walked quite briskly (for me, anyway). A little past the halfway point I felt like someone or something pushed my right shoulder. I stumbled to my left and felt very dizzy for a few seconds. I remember shaking my head, like you would to get the cobwebs out, and continuing on. But I didn't get very far.

I had my cell phone with me and, thankfully, it worked from the little valley I was in. I called my husband to come get me, and I've been fine ever since. My goals are pretty much shot for this month. I don't think I can make up the five days I missed, but I'm going to try. Yesterday's 49 minutes didn't help erase my deficit.

We noticed a flat tire on my husband's car when we got back, so we have to take care of that this morning. I'm going to make time to walk first, though. Another busy couple of days looming.

I hope you're acting on your good intentions. I'm sure going to try!

What in the world is going on with the right shoulder/dizziness thing? Was it just the over-exertion? You be careful of yourself, girl, if you fall down those cows will be on you like vultures on roadkill.

Do you know why you were dizzy? Have you been to the doctor?

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
