I SURVIVED YESTERDAY ...

I somehow knew the sun would come up this morning and that it would set again this evening and that {LIFE} as I presently know it would go on .... feeling way better today!!! Thank goodness!!! The BLUE-BLACK funk has lifted and I am now clouded in a far friendlier rosy-hued funk ... tee hee ...

BUT I have decided that we will not have a BOM Challenge this week - I am taking the week off and in so doing am giving you a break too (just in case you're feeling as overwhelmed as I am ...). We will continue again next week ...

As for my Green Updates I am playing catch up this week ... I am happy to report that I have completed these tasks ...
  1. I took the stairs!!! Hallelujah!!! I was at the Pav and had to use a PUBLIC (gasp) loo so I took the stairs instead of the lift and then went up another flight to the next shopping level ... who would've thought I would be so excited at the opportunity to take the stairs???
  2. I printed on both sides of the paper ...
  3. I have managed to avoid waste this last week ... wow! I feel really good about this one!!!
  4. I have turned off unnecessary lights ... this was easy BUT I spent alot of time running around after everyone else switching off lights that they had left on ... grrrr ... JUST SWITCH OFF THE DAMN LIGHTS IF YOU'RE NOT USING THEM, PEOPLE ....
  5. I have re-cycled my books - still need to take another load of books to the Book Shop but am just about rid of all old books ...
As for the tasks I will have to carry over ...
  • I DID NOT smile when I answered the phone this last week - not only was I in a mental mood but "HomeTech" (a local carpet and upholstery cleaning company) have been phoning me every week since I moved into this home (that's like 5 years, people) to ask if they can come and clean my carpets FOR FREE - riiiiight!!! Do I have SUCKER tattooed on my forehead???? LOSE MY NUMBER!!! How many times do I have to say I am not interested ... grrrrrrrrr ....
  • I DID NOT take my mom for a walk
  • I did not make any effort to get fitter and I certainly did not feel better ... will make an effort now that the BLACK MOOD has passed ... tee hee ...
  • I did not write a letter BUT I did look for pretty writing paper - remember how we used to collect writing paper and envelopes and then swop them with our friends??? Can you believe that I could not find a decent set of writing paper ... go figure!!! Anyway, being the creative artiste (ahem) that I am, I will make my own ...
  • Love where you live ... I have not explored my neighbourhood - my excuse is that somebody may think I'm spying or that I'm a stalker-person and let their dog or Black Cat loose on me ... spoooky ...
  • Look closer - I tried that but all I saw was TREES????? What????
The good news is that Greg is on his way home - YIPPEEE!!! Am so excited - I sure miss my honey!!! And I scrapped today ... another cause for serious celebration - wanna hook up, Bee and Sophs - Tequila and Apple Sours??? mmmmm .....

Love,
