You Look Marvelous!

Why can't I accept a compliment? A friend asked me that recently, and I promised to think about it. It's nice to hear someone say, "You look great!," but if it comes from my loved ones, I usually don't believe them. How messed up is that?

Most women like to receive compliments, and we all try hard to look nice, smell nice, etc. I just think my family is saying those things because they feel like they should, not because it's true. If another person (not family) says they like my (fill-in-the-blank), I thank them and change the subject quickly. I should do some serious work on my gratefulness. Note to self: add this to the list of stuff I gotta do on Project Carol!

I went to see the Ark City High School's production of "This Must be the Place" on Saturday night. This fast-paced comedy was small, but powerful with great performances. Two stand-outs were Jessica Coldwell, as the karate-chopping momma, and Russell Swanson, playing a bachelor artist, befuddled by circumstances on the night he plans to pop the question to an attractive psychologist, or is it the beautiful young debutante? Funny stuff!

Congratulations to my nephew, Ryan, and his lovely bride, Lydia!

Exercise update: Three workouts last week. Onward and upward! I brought the hand weights upstairs and have been using them while I watch TV. Change of pace, I think.
