The mouse pattern is a free pattern from Kristieskids found HERE. The bird pattern is called Birds of a Feather by Hannah Kaminsky. I found this pattern on Ravelry. I didn't have safety eyes, so I just sewed on eyes. I even gave Birdie eyebrows, which might be a little creepy.
Pi really likes the mouse. I'm going to make her one as a surprise this weekend.
Remember I mentioned I took a boot class camp yesterday? Please elevate my "ouch" to "holy crap!" I.Feel.So.Sore! Walking down the steps to the subway was an adventure. It hurt so badly I was walking super slow while holding onto the rail. That speed is just not acceptable for subway commuters and I was given my fair share of dirty looks. Don't worry, I gave my fair share of dirty looks back.
I'm wondering if this pain is really worth physical fitness. Let's review the facts:
1. I'd like to lose more weight, but its not on my "must do" things right now. I had previously lost 55 pounds. 15 have found me again, so that's a net loss of 40 pounds. I could lose 40 more, but I'm pretty comfortable where I am.
2. Hubby loves me just the way I am and could care less if I lose weight. He feeds me well.
3. I'm happy.
4. I like chocolate. Ok, maybe I should be more honest. Chocolate and I have a love affair going. *insert sappy romantic music here* I love it and it loves me. Life would not be worth living if not for chocolate. Chocolate is another way I know that God loves me. He gave me this wonderful gift of chocolate and I should accept it wholeheartedly. Chocolate is just...perfect. This is my ode to chocolate. And we lived happily ever after.
Ok, so I'm being dramatic. I'll go back to the gym, but I reserve the right to complain about it.
Hope you all have a great chocolate filled weekend.
