Not according to plan

I've been trying to do some sewing this morning, but my playful cat (about 7 mos old) keeps attacking my fabric.  It's funny and frustrating at the same time.  She's little and is so adorable as she plays, however I'm afraid that she'll snag up the material.  Considering I'm sewing for my home-based craft business, I really need the fabric to be snag-free.  I know in a little while she'll be ready for a morning nap and I'll be able to sew, but it messes with the momentum I have going right now.

How many other areas of our lives meet with little things that change our plans, even in the slightest?  I know I'll be able to sew in a little while, but these little things can be frustrating as things don't go according to plan.  The same thing happens with my diabetes.  I went to my youngest daughter's first Girl Scout meeting on Wednesday.  The leader made some yummy looking cupcakes and I really wanted one.  "Test" my mind told me, though my taste buds we're signaling my salivary glands to get ready.  167  *pout*  I knew in another hour or two I could have that cupcake, but I couldn't have it right then and there.

Being a Type 2 who is diet and exercise controlled has it's own challenges.  If my glucose is high, I have two choices: exercise or limit carbs for the next meal/snack.  Sometimes that means taking a walk instead of watching TV or a protein instead of a yummy carb. Life in general rarely goes according to plan.  The options you have are to get upset and fight it or step back and adjust.  The second one is a lot less stressful.

The cat is now snuggled up on the dog's bed and looks like she's ready for that morning nap which will allow me to start sewing again.  Have a great weekend, everyone!
