What a week! And not in a good way! This kitchen renovation is so stressful and the cost keeps adding up due to the problems we found when we uncovered the walls. It's going to be a lot more then we bargained for. AND THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING! Friday I went out and something on my tire caught my eye - I could actually see the BELTS showing through my tire! NOT GOOD. So when I got home, Marc looked over my tires and the two front ones are completely shot to the point that it is dangerous to drive on them and the backs really should be replaced. After multiple phone calls to at least 7-8 places, the cheapest I can get 4 tires replaced on my vehicle is $500!! But this is a safety issue, there is no getting around having them done.
Friday I came home and the contractor was not ready for us to paint. So we instead picked up some needed supplies and I began priming the kitchen late. I went to bed late and exhausted and then got up yesterday morning at 6:45 AM to run a charity 10K I signed up for weeks ago. I then came home and we literally painted all day. I was beyond exhausted when I went to bed last night.
I also have been trying so hard to eat right without a stove and my weight was up like 3 pounds yesterday. I can totally see how mental relapses happen. I was sitting on the couch last night, feeling sorry myself and I said to myself that all my efforts are for nothing, my body wants to be fat, I'm just going to eat my way into oblivion.
Fortunately, I slept very late this morning. And when I got on the scale, it was back to 117. Whew - must have been water weight yesterday from working new muscles while painting. So I feel refreshed and in a better space mentally. I'm still really upset about the money I have been spending, but I'm trying to remind myself that it is only money and that the kitchen is going to look great when it's finally pieced back together.
Today I need to paint a second coat on the kitchen, but then my plan is to RELAX and watch some football. I rarely have had a day to just relax lately, and I'm hoping for a good one today!
