I sat in my apartment most of the day, in fact, all day long. I took a 2 hour nap also, it felt great.

I did my exercise tapes this morning, which totally wiped me out, and I keep saying to myself how old I am and that is my excuse as to why I can't complete the stupid tapes. I have done them 4 times, and maybe I am getting better so I will keep trying. No matter how much I exercise, I have gained 7 pounds for no good reason. I can't think of a good reason anyway. I am not eating much, I have exercised at least 3 times a week. It has been quite disturbing.....

I bought a Nook Color. Another thing that I bought for no good reason. I bought several books for the cute thing today but can't seem to get interested in anything. I bought a bright pink case and a bright pink "charm", so it looks very cute. I bought a cookbook, a Bible, and some other interesting reads suggested by my attorney friend. Maybe I will read some tonight.

I made a great little dinner for myself. I sliced some red peppers, and sauteed them in olive oil, and added some cannellini beans for some protein. Sauteed it until they were soft and yummy. A bowl full of spinach leaves, a bunch of crumbled goat cheese, poured the peppers and beans on top of that and added some balsamic viniagrette dressing, homemade of course. It was quite yummy. Red wine too, which I continue to sip.....

After I finish my wine, I am going to get into my exercise clothes again and go downstairs and get on the treadmill for at least 30, maybe for an hour. and walk alternating with a jog. You'd think I'd lose a little, probably not with the way things are going.

I have seen all the traffic today going to some event at Seattle Center. I think it is some sort of festival of folk music. I am walking distance to the Space Needle. I have a view of it as I leave my place. I love my little apartment, it is very cute. I am 1.2 miles from work. It is heaven. I have gained 2 hours a day since I don't commute anymore from the south. I am SO happy with that. I am SO much less tired.

I hope I don't sound depressed. I am very happy with my new life. I can't even explain how happy I am to be away from being yelled at. Finally, I figured out that essentially I was being abused and I didn't even know it. It was quite shocking to me how I was treated in the end. Thank GOD, I am out of that situation......

I started to cut out something to make myself. Not another quilt but a nightgown. I am trying not to spend any money and I have SO much material. I need a NIGHTGOWN. I don't have a pattern but will try to make something up of what I have. My new goal, SIMPLIFY. It is going to be a sleeveless nightgown made of off white ponte knit (it's what I have). I hope it isn't too heavy weight, but in Seattle, it never gets too warm. At least that is a rare thing. It will be a V neck, mid-knee length, slits up the side. top stitched in grey. So far it is laying on the floor, awaiting me to cut it out......I have all day tomorrow to get it started.......I think I will try a new church tomorrow.....any suggestions of churches in Seattle???


  1. Best of luck to you. Better to be alone and peaceful than with chaos. And abuse. Just rest and watch the world go by until you are ready to get back into the swing of things.

  2. You actually sound great! I am so glad.
