10 Fine Things

I struggled again today.  Let's see, what day are we on?  Day 15!  A benchmark day!  25% done!  45 days left before I'm supposed to be myself again, only better!  I hope the new version of me is going to be thinner!  Get more than three hours of sleep each night.  Drink more water.  Exercise every day.  Stop pulling her hair.  Stop thinking about that asshole.  Have lots of amazing adventures.   Since we are deluding ourselves, let's just go all the way: the Adult Education program will win Best of State, and Barack Obama will drop everything to travel to Utah and award this honor, 'cause he had heard that I'm such a well-hydrated hottie;  I will plant hydrangeas out front and they will live;  I will run the Salt Lake Half in under two hours.

While we wait for Kate Version 2.0 to show up, let me just confess the reality:  I looked for CB at the rec today, because he had been there yesterday; I went to bed at 3:00 AM last night; I am eating Girl Scout cookies while I write. 

I need to think of some happy stuff.  Can I think of ten things?
  1. Lunch at California Pizza Kitchen (BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad!!) with an acquaintance, chatting and getting to know each other better.
  2. Martina gave me a gorgeous scarf that she is tired of. 
  3. Mark was heard tonight, answering the phone, "Guadalupe School.  Kate speaking."
  4. I have taken off my high-heeled boots and am now sitting here with a cup of tea, three girl Scout cookies and my fuzzy slippers.
  5. Sara babysat for Nathan tonight so I could work.  I got home at 9:30 and found them both in bed, where they are supposed to be.
  6. I am not miserable right this moment.
  7. I helped Laura Guerrero practice her luncheon speech tonight.  
  8. Nathan's woodland diorama scene for his book report, due tomorrow, looks super-cool.. 
Uh...Two more...?

Uh...

9.  My toenails are painted my favorite shade of green....
10.  My bed is waiting in my softly lit room, waiting for me to finally surrender to my sleepiness and try to do better tomorrow.

Truly. I am dozing off as I sit here.  Good night!
