Joy To the World!

That's how I feel today - joyful and relieved!  I just finished my exams today, believe it or not, and I think they went pretty well.  Now I just have to wait and see the results...ugh it makes me nervous...

BUT, for now I can relax and read blogs and do puzzles (my family always has a random jigsaw puzzle in progress). And...clean my room!  It is in dire need of a complete organizational makeover which will take the span of a few days to complete.  I actually like cleaning and organizing though; it makes me feel like I accomplished something important, lol. 
(Btw, I'm writing this and watching skating on tv, so I apologize for any typos or non-sensical sentences)

Tonight, my family is going to a drive-thru light exhibit. It should be fun, even though it's been raining non-stop here.  We are going to make caramel corn and eat it in the car as we drive through, yum!  We've been on a caramel corn kick, which is weird because no one really liked it all that much before.  But, this recipe is really good.  Maybe I'll post it next time. :)

Which leads me to eating.  I've been pretty good, lately.  We've been making alot of sweet stuff to take to parties and friends and there always seems to be somthing in the house.  I just have to remind myself not to freak out about all the food.  I get this weird, anxious feeling when we have alot of food in the house, like we need to eat it up before we can make or buy anything else.  It's not really relaed to a fear of gaining weight from the food, it's just like there's too much to have to think about, if that makes any sense.  For example, I hate opening a box of cereal, if we already have one open - I feel like I have to eat the open one up first.  Idk, just a random, OCD quirk of mine. 
Actually, the past few weeks I've been having some digestion issues, which have been rather triggering and inhibited completely "normal" eating.  Because of it, I have lost a very small amount of weight, unintentionally.  It's probably just a phase, but if it doesn't get better, I promise I'll go get everything checked out. 

On a lighter note, I'm looking forward to relaxing this week and maybe making some special edible and non-edible treats for Christmas.  My family doesn't do anything big for the holidays, but we have our traditions.  We don't get a tree because our cats try to eat it and climb in it, but a few years ago we bought one of those wicker moose lawn ornaments and now we put that in our living room every year.  He lights up and everything! hehe

Sorry this is a long block of prose because I really am too lazy to put pictures in here right now.  I hope to have pictures ready next time.  Get ready for random and sporadic posting!! 
I hope you all are having a good weekend! Love you (in a non creepy way of course)!<3


  1. So glad to have you back!!

    I'm glad your exams went well and that you are in a wonderful Christmas mood!!

    I really like the picture of the snowman. So cute!

    I can't wait for your upcoming posts!



  2. I'm so glad to hear that you're back!(:

    Yeah, you might want to get the weight thing checked out. The same thing has been happening to me, but I still eat anyway. It's so weird at first to eat when you're not hungry, but you get used to it I guess.

    Omg I feel the same way about food! If we still have food in the house and we go grocery shopping, then I feel really stupid for going grocery shopping because theres still food there. The best thing to do is just to let it go. It's another ED habit that we need to get rid of.

    Merry Christmas! And I can't wait to hear from you again(:
