spring cleaning

21 Mar

So today me and D decided to take some donations to a thrift store that’s close to us, the one I’ve talked about before.  Their profits go to a local women’s shelter so I like buying there.  Plus, they have the best quality for price when it comes to clothes.  We looked at some clothes and I found a pair of shorts 🙂 woot! They’re mens, but that’s alright with me.  LOL D didn’t find anything 😦 After that we went to the mall and peeked in at Spencer’s and Hot Topic.  It still amazes me how Spencer’s is still exactly the same as it was when I was younger, and also how much it’s changed.  It’s still the same in that it’s quite alternative, etc.  It’s different in that they have a whole section of sex toys! O_O

Me and D are starting to buckle down on eating healthier. Yes, I’m saying this as I drink a Coke and am eating Jelly Beans LOL But, we have cut down our eating out a ton.  It helps that the internet is working at home again so we’re not needing to go out and about to find open wifi anymore.  We also are strong believers in rewarding ourselves, and that complete restriction is not the way to go.

Lately I’ve been really down on myself about my weight and body image and all that.  I’m not sure why.  D obviously is attracted to me and my weight is not an issue for him.  He accepts me how I am.  I think it’s frustrating for me that I’ve found so many things that don’t work in the long term, and really nothing that has.  I’ve lost a little weight now, since I’ve started walking, I know I have.  I’ve also cut out a lot of junk food and a lot of crap food; processed, boxed etc, as we just don’t eat that.  D’s pretty down on himself  as well.  Since he hasn’t been working he hasn’t been walking or doing anything, so he’s put on about 10lbs over the past couple months 😦

My fibro is thankfully back under control today, I was in so much pain the last couple of days, and a lot of the worst part is that it’s so draining, physically and emotionally.  Last night D I could barely stand for D to touch me.  It was horrible.  Thankfully it’s all over now and believe you me, he’ll certainly be touching me later!!!

We got a lot of cleaning done today.  D hand scrubbed out the oven and I got the patio cleaned up from all the winter nasti-ness.  We’re getting the grill cleaned up as well, it’s been a long…long time since that’s experienced any sort of up-keep.  Our bathtub is currently full of the grates from both the grill and oven LOL

I also got a chemical burn from the oven cleaning stuff.  We think it’s ‘cuz I probably also had another cleaner on my skin, from washing the outside of the patio doors and some of the grill.  So the combination decided to melt off some of my skin.  Oww!

Thankfully when I came out whining that my skin was melting D knew what to do. I’d never had a chemical burn before LOL We put some vinegar on it and that neutralized whatever was burning me. D figured it was lye.  OWW!

We’ve got a rump roast cooking in some black ale right now.  It smells so good in here… It’s about time to wash and cut up the potatoes and put those and the veggies in.  YUM! *licks lips*

That’s about it for now.  I know I’m blogging a lot earlier than I do *shrugs* Maybe I’ll blog again later, maybe I won’t.  I have a couple reviews to write up I may do later on.  🙂 But for now…th…the…theee….that’s all folks!!

    I feel you JB. 6 months ago I was getting into the best shape of my life, then I caught a really bad case of broncities and developed allergies to pet dander so I’m just now able to breath normally so that I can work out without having to sit down and use an inhaler after 10 minutes. So I’m basically right back where I started before this all happened. Ugh! Still, if I did it once I can do it again, and I’m sure you can do whatever you set your mind to once your out of the hospital next week and all healed up 🙂

    Reading this blog, one major thing stood out to me. When you mentioned you are feeling down about your body, but you don’t know why because D loves your body and accepts you as is.. Oh man. Master is NOT a small guy, but he always thinks I don’t like his body type. I LOVE his size, why else would I have married him? lol. 🙂 Yeah, I dunno, I think we all have insecurities when it comes to our bodies. *hugs*

      *hugs* So true so true! We all have insecurities and little quirks about our bodies. Normally I’m comfortable with my body and can feel sexy, but I think with all this stress and all that, it’s just shaken me. A lot of it I’ve realized today is that now that I’m able to blog again, all this shit I’ve repressed that I’m able to like…well, vomit out 😉 is kind of overwhelming me and causing me to boil over a bit. 😛 Eh, we’re all human right? Well…part human at least lol
