Spontaneous Combustion in the Upchuck Room: The Simple Woman’s Daybook for Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Outside my window … A nice warm day with a light breeze.

I am thinking...
 about the senseless bombing at the Boston Marathon.  I don’t CARE who did it; it ticks me off.

I am thankful...
that my running coach did not run the Boston Marathon this year.  She could have been injured.

In the kitchen...
 Food.  :)

I am wearing...
My Kyle Comfort 5k shirt and a pair of blue jean shorts (that I can finally fit back into).

I am creating...
I’m actually knitting some baby booties instead of crocheting them.  It takes 10 times as long, but hey, I need to keep my chops up.

I am going... to choir practice tonight. 

I am wondering... about myself (again).  I had Community Band practice last night and this is the absolute worst I’ve played since I joined.  I’m so not gelling…I’m sucking…BIG TIME. 

I am reading...
Sunday School materials.

I am hoping...
that someone can get the air fixed where I work out.  I mentioned on my Facebook page that I nearly spontaneously combusted in the gym this past weekend.  I got so hot that I had to stop, sit down, and cool off to keep from hurling (literally!!).  At first, I thought it was so warm in the room because the "seasoned saints" had asked the air to be turned down (they always say they're cold).  Then, I thought it was just me because I was wearing a t-shirt instead of something sleeveless.   I went back Monday (in a tank top); more of the same, but I did finish.  Yesterday (in a tank top), I got through 2 minutes of my usual 30 minute run and started feeling pukey and had to stop. I still thought it was me.  Turns out from what the other patrons are saying, it isn’t just me.  If they can’t (or won’t) fix it, may I suggest closing the blinds to the big windows during the day to keep the room cooler or SOMETING?  Look, I love The Biggest Loser as much as the next person, but I’m not interested in joining the upchuck-your-way-to-fitness crowd.  Sheesh!

I am looking forward to... seeing the movie Home Run this weekend.  The last new movie I saw in the theater was Drum Line (and y'all know how long ago that was).
I am learning… how getting rid of clothes that are too big for me is a form of relapse prevention.  It is also a form of trusting God to help me replace what I’m getting rid of.

Around the house... Putting laundry away and possibly cleaning the inside of my car.

I am pondering...   on a big decision I’m trying to make.

A favorite quote for today... I have two today:

"For 24 years of my adult life, by choice I weighed well over 200 pounds. Now the reason I say 'by choice' is simply because I have never accidentally eaten anything." - Zig Ziglar

(Me either.)

"I don't know what the ---- was going on with the Scottish education board in the 1970s. It was like: 'Do you like whiskey? Do you hate kids? The job's yours.'"- Craig Ferguson

(Geez, I wonder if these same people hired teachers in Alabama when I was in school in the 80's?)

One of my favorite things... almonds.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Choir practice Wednesday, stitch night at the yarn shop Thursday, WWF at CR Friday.  Going to see the movie Homerun on Saturday.

A peek into my day... Keep me in your prayers.  I've got some big things coming up (hopefully) and I want to make the right decisions.

UPDATE:  They DID fix the air (Praise the Lord).  Now, if they will just fix the toilets in the ladies' locker room....
