So, I'm taking a little time off work. I just need to reflect and regroup. I let Christy (my seamstress) go because it wasn't working out. I think she needs to start her own business so she can do work that is more creative. Right now I'm not going to think about hiring anyone else until I find out if we're moving or not. Next Monday is when we find out! Then I can get on with my life and figure out what's next for me. Don't worry, I'm not quitting Wiksten.
What I'm going to focus on for the next week is working on the house (which might need to be either sold or rented in a few months) and making some clothes for myself. Since I've gained weight most of my clothes are too small, but I still need to look cute, right? Besides working out, last week I ate really healthy (in other words, no con queso), and I dropped a couple of pounds. Yay! But I still need some new clothes. I like to set goals for myself, so I've planned a little something special for Valentine's Day. I made surprise reservations for me and Joe to eat at a super awesome new restaurant that night. I want to look really beautiful for him, so I'm going to make myself a new dress to wear and try to get a little more in shape physically. And I'm getting a haircut that day. The only problem is that he might have an overnight shift in the emergency room that night. I don't know yet. This year has been really hard on our relationship, and that's why this night is so important to me. I just want to show him how much I love him. But if he has to work we can always do it another day. I'm just really excited to have a fancy date since we don't get to do that much anymore.
Anyways, I ordered the fabric for the dress last night, and hopefully I will have pictures of the finished product up on the blog in a few weeks. I hope I can pull it off. Also, I'm finishing my cardigan tonight! It should be done by now, but I ran out of yarn right when it was time to sew the sleeves on. Argh. Luckily Mindy has the same yarn and has agreed to let me borrow some if I take her out to dinner tonight. Otherwise I would have to order it online and wait for it! No way. I'm really glad I have a sister.
