Now, I am not one of those people who weigh everyday! In fact I don't weigh EVER! I don't even OWN scales. Can't handle the pressure! I can tell by the way my clothes fit, if I am where I need to be.....or not! My clothes also "speak" to me!
Here lately, they have been screaming their heads off!! I have not been listening!
Finally....I looked behind me one day....Lord have Mercy! Where did THAT come from and whose is it???
Alas, it was mine...My rear end!! It seems to have taken on a life of its own! It's own little personality...if you will...
I'm not happy with it! Nope....not at all!
So...BACK to Weight Watchers I go! AGAIN! It just seems to me that once you lose the weight, it should stay gone!! But, that is not the case...
So, once again, I am counting points, which I don't think I get NEAR enough of, let me tell you! It is 1:30 p.m., I get 21 points a day...guess how many I have left???? 10! Yep, 10!
That's not enough! Not near enough!
But I am motivated. All I have to do is turn around if my resolve starts to fade and I instantly RE-motivate!! Dear Lord!
So....15 lbs to lose....really I would prefer 20....I am keeping my goal "real" however, and setting it for 15...aaack!!
Poor Steve....when he met me I was a skinny minnie! Not necessarily by choice mind you. You know how it is when you go through a really bad divorce and you aren't dieting, you just CAN'T eat! So pounds just drop off before your very eyes!
I did warn him that that size was NOT normal for me! I am a big boned gal! Yeah, that's it! It's my BONES that weigh so much! Dense little hummers!
That butt bone there? She's a doozie!

I have had QUITE the weekend let me tell you! I decided after getting the new door :) that of course call for MORE projects! Of course...right?
The first project was "relatively" easy. I wanted to move the below rug into my kitchen! I know, I know, everyone in my house has said, "I have never seen a rug in a kitchen." Well, they have now....
This would be Sissie trying to stay up high and out of the way of a certain Bella....
I think it warms the room up. I HATE the tile in my kitchen! It is white! I mean, who does that? WHITE TILE! Cold, impersonal and so not easy to keep clean! Yes, it could get dirty, I will be careful! It's just a rug after all...no big deal, right? If I decide I don't like it, I can always move it back!
Second project of the weekend, painting the dining room. It has anaglypta paper on the bottom half below the chair rail which was painted deep red (see first photo) with a pale gold on the top. I was ready for a lighter and brighter look.
Beth at from The Stories from A to Z says that the BEST green color in the world is Benjamin Moore Rosemary Twig! Hey, I took her at her word and went and got a gallon. Didn't look at a swatch, just told the girl what color paint I wanted and took it to the house.
This is the before...
I also changed the overlay on the table.
It was deep red velvet and I got a couple of yards of
fabric from Hobby Lobby and just threw it over the table.

Seth sprung into action....
He gave her a bath and tried to get the 4.5 million fleas off of her.
I came in and got the last million off.
She is feeling much, much better!!
Amazing what a little tender loving care can do!
She is five weeks old...
We named her Bella.
We love her...
But maybe she can adjust.
What did Steve say?
Well....Steve is adjusting.
He said people were going to call me the "Cat Lady"
I told him I have been called worse...
