It's FRIDAY!!!! Tax insanity is over and I survived! Can you join me in a great big freakin' YAY???
Obviously, I've been thinking a lot about writing lately, and coming up with various metaphors / analogies. For example, I discovered as I was getting dressed for work yesterday, that I write like I get dressed. First, I stand in front of my closet. What to wear? (translation: what to write?). I see a dress, but decide against it, it's just too easy to be right...and more than a little obvious (such a cliche!). Instead I look through a pile of (clean) laundry I need to put away. Aha! I like this shirt, let's wear this (I like this phrase/scene/etc. Let's write it.). I put it on and put on a pair of pants. Ew! Why do I still own these? (delete). I try another pair of pants. Oh God, no! This doesn't go at all. I survey closet again. Maybe I don't want to wear this shirt. I try on another shirt. (delete, rewrite). Uh uh. This just doesn't feel right. Take off top and pants and put on original dress (quick delete, rewrite simple & clean). hahaha!
Progress Report Day 5
Exercise: 30 minutes. I went for a jog on the trail and while I did slow now and again to catch my breath, I ran waaaay more than I walked, so I'm happy. Also, I'm happy to report that I am down 3 pounds since I re-committed to healthier living.
Water: 7 glasses. Funny thing about getting my fill of water during the day, I'm less likely to snack on stupid stuff. It's the snacking that gets me. I do pretty good with my 3 meals a day, but those in-between munchies really pack on the calories for me!
Today's featured bag was a dress in a former life. Not sure if you can see, but there's a really pretty cranberry satin lining in this one. Incidentally, these aren't mine. I have purse envy, but I can't be bothered switching out all my crap from one purse to another. I buy one, wear it out, then buy another one.
