I told you I’d do it.
I put down the Colinette and started the Shetland Triangle with Trendsetters Kid Seta, color #1007 yesterday.
It’s a lovely, bright sort of lavendar but the website calls it… Mauve? (I just looked it up).
I’m resisting the inclination I now have to dislike it. It’s really a pretty color, and I’m liking it even better knit up than I did in the ball, when I was still skeptical. (Oops. Resisting, I’m still resisting. Mauve?).
I’m inexplicably depressed today. I have absolutely no reason to be. The sun is out. The floor is mopped. The kids are in school. I’ve completed all of my obligations at school for the week and plan to spend the day quietly with yarn and laundry.
Besides, it’s Leap Year. Right? Happy, happy.
I should be.
I stopped eating sugar on Monday, (because I was out of control. Again.), and I think that’s the culprit. I’ve heard about this happening a few days into a sugar fast. Sometimes it happens to me and sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve been having a great week. I feel great, my skin is better already (which was the main reason I started. I may be significantly overweight but darnit, I have pretty skin. And when it starts getting blotchy, I get upset. Call me vain).
I’m not craving anything. I just want to cry and go to bed.
This is so lame.
I was going to talk about this in Health Group tomorrow, but I’ve already started here… I’ve been drinking a ton of water, and I’ve started my wheatgrass up again so I can cleanse. It should be ready to juice in a few days. Kind of like spring cleaning on the inside. That’s how it feels. It feels good. Until I wake up incredibly depressed.
I actually didn’t wake up depressed. I was awake at 5, laid in bed with my thoughts ’til 6. Got up, read a little, did my physical therapy, drank some water, and the switch flipped. Happy-and-content to melancholy. Just like that.
But the lace is pretty.
