Diet... weather... life

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

I've definitely lost 8 kg (ca. 18 pounds) as of today. 2 more to go, then I'll have reached my first goal! ^____^

It only rained once today. It's actually looking like it might open up by tomorrow. The sky isn't uniformly gray anymore, instead, you can almost distinguish individual clouds. We're not heading for any long stretch of good weather, only a slight easing, according to the weather report, but I'll take any non-rainy days that I can get.

Two big boxes of plants arrived today. All of them herbs of some kind or other, so I'll have to do some planting in the next few days. I also need pots, because some of them are meant to be kept in the house. Of course my neighbors immediately pulled the lawn-mowers out of their garages, the moment the rain stopped, and I've been listening to them going back and forth all day. *sigh* Just a few warm days and I can mow my grass with the scythe again. It's gotten quite high with all the rain...

Finished the Crisis Core fanfic that I'd been working on. Took me longer than I thought. Then again, it ended up having around 6600 words, so that took a bit to write. Especially since I was bouncing evil plot ideas back and forth with lyssyface, until she dropped dead of nosebleed. *gg*

My daughter is quite displeased with me. I have dared to refuse her request for money to throw a going-away party this Friday. See, she gets a generous allowance every month from my mother - right into her own account. But that seems to have been already used up and now it's "Mama, I need money" time. Unfortunately, she has *also* abused her mobile phone limit, despite the fact that we'd talked about that last month and she's about 60 $ over what she *should* have on the bill. Now, that's *exactly* the kind of money that we don't have right now. And so, since she has ignored my warnings, there's simply nothing left over for parties. Going away or not.

Still have to clear up the money issue for Australia. Have to call up Cilli's bank tomorrow... and write to the host family to ask about PayPal...

Hm... Finished the handout for renting the room. Now I have to look up the email addresses of local companies and send it to them. Came out rather nicely, I must say... ^___^ I was quite pleased with my InDesign skills... *laugh*

So... how was your day? ^____^

My day is woe :( I came home to find my chilli plants drooping really badly and there's no way of knowing if its too much heat or too much rain as we've had both in abundance over the last few days.

Ohh... your poor chilli plant! Hm... maybe too much of both? I'm not sure what they like... I could go look it up, though. I think. If I haven't thrown out the catalogue with all the plants in it... *ponders*

Congrats on nearing your goal! I have hit a wall, and can't seem to get past it. (This has nothing to do with the cookies and donuts that keep getting brought in to work. Nothing. >_> )
And go you on the 'no'! I wish I could manage that with my kid... I am SUCH a damn marshmallow. >_<;

Thank you. :)

I'm still being disciplined. Seeing the weight loss helps a lot to keep me in line. :) Thank the Gods I'm not tempted like that.

Most of the time, I'll compromise, but not this time. She has to learn that *sometimes*, she can't get everything that she wants...

*is Evil!Mother*
