I still have a ton of unpacking to do at the new place but part of me is a little reluctant to do it in case B’s contract doesn’t get renewed. I suppose I shouldn’t think like that but it’s a worry. I really hope that he gets that indeterminate contract. I did however find the curtains I’d been looking for. They’re a bit long for the window I wanted them on so I’m going to have to shorten them. They do look really nice in the kitchen though. It just adds that extra touch. I have some for the office and spare bedroom too and need to get smaller curtain rods for the master bedroom and living room if I want to put curtains up… which I’ll most likely end up doing since I have enough made already.
In other news, my weight watchers diet is going pretty well. I’ve lost another two pounds which isn’t that surprising to me considering all the exercise I’ve done this past week. I’m really beginning to feel that my weight loss goal is achievable and I don’t have to give up all the yummy things I like; I just have to be careful how much of them I eat. I have to admit that I’m enjoying the feeling of being satisfied by my food instead of overstuffed by it.
We’re having yet another blizzard here today. It’s snowing like crazy but it’s not too awful. I know that spring will come up here eventually but I’ve really adapted to the way it is up here already. I’m not anticipating and expecting the snow to melt anymore. I’m finally okay with it being a snow covered land and am finding ways to enjoy it, snow and all. I will be happy to see the snow melt and plants start to pop up but I’m no longer wishing the snow away. I’m actually pretty surprised by it myself which is probably why I’ve written about it ore than once. Before moving up here I thought that I’d always miss trees and greenery, and I do miss it, but I’ve learned to like this land the way it is too and be happy with it. There are other natural wonders and beauty up here to enjoy so why dwell on and long for something I can’t have? Instead I embrace the land here as it is and am much happier for it.
