Happy and/or Random Thoughts #3

Not going to lie, looking much more forward to playing with the sparklies than I was to sewing for hours on end!

Just gave the dress a bath to get out all the dirt, etc. it acquired from being handled so much in construction. Once dry, it's time to sew on ribbon, etc... the get-high-on-glue phase starts Thursday after work :)
 
My pro has been encouraging me to break down and get a smooth suit. Last night, I thought of an added bonus to my doing so - I've been meaning to drop another 10-15 pounds or so for a while now. Sure, the typical reaction when I tell people this is "wait, how do you have 15 pounds to lose?", but my body fat percentage is really higher than I'd like it to be. It'd take some real effort to drop that much more weight, but there's no inherent reason I couldn't do it.

But a bespoke smooth suit would be a fairly major investment for me. I'd have every reason to want to stay my current weight (which is easy to maintain) pretty much indefinitely. So I'll have a nice, convenient excuse to not worry about hard dieting. :D

Maybe not something I should be super happy about, but sister has decided to break up with her potential-to-become-abusive boyfriend. It's a bit of an unhappy relationship...he tends to answer for her when someone asks her a question, and he tries to control how much she goes out with friends/expressing he's uncomfortable with her wearing certain things. But they're 18 and they've known each other since they were 5, and it's been hard for her to see that.

I think she finally has. And I'm glad, because it wasn't a healthy relationship.

Oh, also last night while we were out BF was trying to stop a guy bothering my little sisters, and referred to himself as "I'm their brother-in-law"

So I guess the commitment problems are slowly disappearing, lol.
 
Just found out that my parents will be footing a significant part of the bill for me to go to nationals... Turns out that my sister asked for help going to Florida with friends for spring break and they f felt bad because I had always paid for my own spring break ( 2 years at Wisconsin dells) so they wanted to keep everything even. So grateful:):):)

Yeah, those things are traits of borderline/narcissistic personality disorder. Not saying that's what he is, but the signs are troubling. Probably good that your sister got out of that relationship.

Dudes boxers are super comfy, except for all the extra room in the front o_O

But at $5 a pair, and better quality than most cheap girl undies, I think I've found my new favourite thing.

Congratulations!!!

After nearly a month on a knee scooter I was finally allowed to walk in the pool today!!! Spent 30 minutes first tip-toeing and then actually putting my heel down and walking up and down one of the lanes in the pool. And the pain was tremendous. But I was WALKING! It's the little things right now...

Sister broke up with problematic bf. Good. Since then he's been sending her anywhere from 2-20 texts a day, and sent mum a text saying "I'd never hurt her, even if I was really angry. I just want her to see that I'm still the guy she fell for"

I don't know how he meant it but that sounds very defensive and throws up a whole bunch of red flags for me. I'm glad she's out.
