My period has officially started. I had another dip in my temperature yesterday morning to one tenth below the cover line and this morning it was back down to 97.8. I knew she was coming but it still sucks. I'm not too crampy yet so that's good. I had McD's for lunch to comfort myself. Now I feel "blah" and mad at myself after being so good this week (all of 2 days) and going to the gym. I'll be back in there tomorrow, but today...not so much.
I also had a DIVINE cupcake today. We get "thank you" gifts from vendors around election day for using their services and we have gotten cupcakes twice this week. The first one that I had on Monday was chocolate with chocolate frosting. Can I just say it was sinfully good? Today's came around about an hour ago. I had a chocolate one with peanut butter frosting. Both of these cupcakes were probably 1000 calories but you know what? They were so worth it. I've never had peanut butter frosting and you can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. I'm drooling again just thinking about it.
I'm glad the elections are over. I won't talk politics here (or in real life, either) but can I just say "wow!"? I knew the Dems would lose some seats but I thought everyone was over reacting to how bad it would be for them. Americans voted for change for sure. The only problem is that with a Republican House and a Democratic Senate and a Democratic President...nothing will get passed in the next 2 years. It's amazing how quickly the political climate can change in this country. I voted and I hope you guys did, too. We might not agree on who (whom?) to vote for, but voting is one of the most liberating things we, as Americans, can do. Rah, rah, rah. Ok, that's enough.
BJ and the Little Guy played video games for about an hour after dinner last night so I took the time to work on some scrapping. Instead of doing laundry. I got 6 pages mounted! I'm slowly working my way through all the Christmas time pictures. I take a lot of pictures at that time of year. Between decorating, my SIL's party and our Christmas...whew! My camera gets a work out for sure. I will be mindful of how many I take this year and opt for more quality pictures than quantity of pictures. I have a crop to go to on 11/13 for the day and I'm very excited to go and get some more work done. I will actually need to print out some pictures to work on and that's fun...looking back and doing some editing and then getting them printed...good times. I'm even dabbling in the digital side of things. Talk about time consuming, but it's fun. The possibilities are almost endless. If I weren't so worried about putting pictures of the Little Guy on here I'd post some of my work. Not that it's great work, but I like it and it's something tangible that I can be proud of. I'll think about it. Maybe I'll make it password protected or something. I'll have to see.
