I finished Logan's hat while waiting for Jennifer to finish up at the black jack tables Friday morning. It was wonderful to spend 90 mins uninterrupted. No one yelled for Mom! and meant for me to come. There was no drama. No support calls or purchase requests. It was blissfully quiet and serene. I got through the first LimeNViolet podcast without interruption. I've gotten through the next 5 episodes since then. My Aunt sent me some money for Christmas and I decided to treat myself to the LimeNViolet Lisa Souza Sock! colorways.
Logan's hat now just needs to be washed and sent off to him. He's doing really well. He's ahead of "schedule" for everything. He's weathered the lung bleed really well. All of the blood from the brain bleed has been reabsorbed. His mom and dad are hoping to start kangaroo care very soon. They still have a long road ahead of them, but he's proven to be quite a little fighter. Please keep your good thoughts and prayers coming for him and his family.
Today was "Default Day" for the divorce proceedings. So I guess we're onto the next phase. I'm not completely sure as to how that all works, but I'm sure my lawyer will be glad to explain it...for a small fee, of course. I've gotten so many apologies recently when people hear about the breakup. It's nice, but unnecessary. I'm so past the hurtful parts. I've definitely come to the acceptance and calm part of the process. It's so funny because the woman that did my pedicure had the best words of advice I've heard in a really long time. She said that she lives by a very simple philosophy. When someone is causing her grief she asks herself two questions: Do I have to sleep with this person? Does this person sign my paycheck? She said if the answer to each question is no, then she just lets it go. I think that fits in well with my "Be Better" goal for this year.
Along the "Be Better" lines is an update on the "Be Better to Myself" progress. I'm 2 weeks and 2 days into the healthier living life style change. I'm so happy to say I'm down 11 pounds and have lost 14.875 inches overall. It really hasn't been too hard either. Now that it's just me and Peanut in the house, I can control what's brought into the house. We're doing just fine without the candy and chips. It'll be the best for the both of us in the long run. As I've said before, that's the most important thing to me.
I'll leave you with gratuitous Peanut photos from a recent shopping trip. Her choice of red, patent leather, open toed, sling backs just proves that she is my little girl.
