I snacked a lot yesterday, most likely because I was exhausted from having insomnia two nights in a row. Still, none of it had sugar or flour, yay! I slept last night, thank God, and today I feel as happy as a dolphin! Or maybe an otter . . . floating on her back and having a sea snack, LOL.
It dawned on me today that you all don't know much about the other sides of me, other than the fact that I'm a compulsive overeater, specifically a sugar and flour addict, and that I'm in recovery from an alcoholic upbringing as well as my eating disorder. However, I hope you've caught sight of my humor through my writing. I'm not always intense and deep, although that is the part of the pool I prefer to swim in. I'm also a total dork and nerd, and it took me some 40+ years to get comfortable accepting that fact.
I never fully introduced myself to you, so, here goes: I prefer cats to dogs (although they are OK), baths to showers, being cold to being hot, one-on-one to large groups, and food to . . . well . . . just about everything else, LOL :-) I like to swim, listen while people process, and attend dance performances and other cultural events. I crochet and have metal-smithed (jewelry), made stained glass (quilt-block patterns), made paper from pulp slurry, marbled paper, embroidered, sewn, counted cross-stitched, cast horoscope charts, calculated my numerology profile and probably other things I've forgotten. The next thing I want to do is make beaded jewelry. I'm an auto-didactic typical INFJ (Meyers-Briggs personality type). Ironically, I used to read prodigiously until I became an editor. Now I can't read without editing in my head and noticing things like fonts, folios, and widows and orphans (publishing jargon).
I'm pretty shy, but I can carry a conversation quite well if I'm in a one-on-one setting. When at parties, I usually just observe (typical Enneagram number 5) or seek out one particular person to chat with. You'll never catch me "working" a room!
Well, that's about all for now but certainly not all of me. I just thought I should "flesh" myself out for you so this blog doesn't get too heavy. See you tomorrow . . . stay tuned for an upcoming blog contest, my first ever!
