Half Way There, Recognizing A Gift.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

GOOD MORNING SPARK PEEPS! Can you tell I am in a good mood?! emoticon Today was weigh-in day, and as I looked at the number I was sooo, happy! TEN pounds gone! Bu-bye! So long! Don’t let the door hit you on the way out! emoticon And come you-know-what or high water, I will never see those ten pounds again. This puts me at half way to my first quarter goal. I am going to take pictures again, but later, because I am sweaty right now emoticon and plan on getting even sweatier in about 45 minutes. I have to walk eight 33 gallon bags of recyclables about half a mile to the redemption center. That is going to be 4 trips and a good calorie burn!

In my last Blog, I told you about my closet shelf and clothes rod falling down. Well, yesterday I managed to get it fixed.

Here's what I started with. This is the brace I put in that should have been there to begin with.
This is the finished closet. I have two of the shelf and rod supports evenly spaced out instead of just one in the center, like the idiots did. I had a difficult relationship with my Father growing up. (Another blog needed for that) There is one thing I am truly grateful for and will always cherish; he taught me how to use simple power and hand tools. I had the knowledge and the capability to not only do the repair myself, but to do it the right way. I may not have liked HOW he taught me, but I am glad that he did.

Here’s to continuing forward towards our goals, celebrating when we hit a goal, and for those of you out there in Spark Land having a rough time, focus on 1 good thing, and leave the bad behind. We are all here for you; all you need to do is reach out. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    And great job on the closet repair! I'm the repair gal in our house. I joke that all the tools, except 1 bent screwdriver is mine! :) I've actually built a few things based on plans from ana-white.com. Any woman who wants to learn how to do things, get inspiration and what not, should go check out her site.

    emoticon Wow - as one who is unable to fix anything (nope, my dad was a Dr... not handy at all and thus didn't teach us any of those skills! - I am always so impressed with people who CAN! Especially women who can!! You go girl!
    Also, way to go on that 10 lbs gone for good! Totally awesome!
