An even keel

When I'm not weighing myself every morning, I'm a much more serene person.

This is quite surprising to me. And somewhat of a disturbing discovery, because I truly wish that number, whether it be the "right" one or one not-so-right, didn't hold the power to make me happy or pissed off. [Yes, I know it's not the number. I'm the one who makes me feel. I've been therapized. But you know what I mean.]

Anyway. This week has been smooth sailing. No dramatic, emotional ups and downs. I've been organized, consistent and productive. There were a couple of bad-number days, a couple of weeks ago, where all I wanted to do was play solitaire or sleep.

Of course, there's not much to write about when I'm feeling okay every morning.

The FLAK fronts are not quite finished, but well on the way. I had to rip the right side out once and the left side twice, but eventually all the cables got crossed the right direction and on the same row. That's a pretty important factor in this design. I'm really looking forward to wearing this. Next year, or course. No instant gratification projects here!

I started knitting the left front of Optically Delusional last night while slogging through the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. I'm not a big fan of the current broadcasting theory where one must dig up a personal-interest story for every athlete attending the games, and it felt like they were filling up time. I quit knitting and started sleeping at about 10 p.m. (EST), so I don't even know who lit the torch! Must Google that. I so don't want to be out of the loop!

Food has been good, exercise has been regular and challenging but not too much so. It snowed last night, so I'll probably do the treadmill today. Not as much fun, but at least there will be live sports to watch.

I love your FLAK and the color is beautiful. I'm waiting a bit to start mine but I think I will do it.
