I rarely get introspective on this blog but I am hoping that writing about this will help me feel better.

My feelings are very easily hurt.  I have tried, with difficulty, to develop a thicker outer skin but sometimes I it doesn’t help.  I try to cover it with jokes, which sometimes gets me into trouble.  I say things to other people which makes me feel even worse. I suppose that is why I am always apologizing to people.  I don’t want them to feel like I do!

Anyway something happened yesterday.  To tell you all what happened won’t change anything.  But, to make myself feel better, I ate 5 sugar cookies.  Which only made me feel worse. Then I felt bad-and nauseated.

I AM NOT GOING TO DO THAT ANYMORE! (OK- I will try very hard not to do that anymore…) Since July I have lost 22 pounds.  Of that I am very proud.  I can’t blame anyone else for my eating habits but I can try to control how I react.  I have always told my daughters, You can’t change other people; you can change how you react to them.  Maybe I will take my own advice…

On a lighter note…Remember these?


Well, since I posted I have made 6 more!  I included a key chain on a couple.  They are very addictive!

My mother once told me she never regretted anything she didn't say. I need to heed her advice because I embarrassed myself last week and my consoling food was an entire $6 package of pistachio nuts.

Oh, by the way check your e-mail; I need your address to send you that pattern.
