The partying is over. The picnics are done. The ants are no longer bothering me. The mosquitoes are outside and I am finally inside. My sister will soon be returning to Florida.
My son and daughter-in-law didn’t make it in this weekend. They were about half an hour outside of Philadelphia when their car broke down. (That’s a good start to a long weekend.)
I have a Magic Track set sitting in my mothers bedroom. It was supposed to go to our 4 year old grandson as a late birthday present. There is a tablet in there that was meant for our ten year old granddaughter as our late birthday present to her.
I had two Stromboli and a pizza already to put in the oven when they got here. I make it from scratch, dough and all, so it had to be baked. John and I had Stromboli for two meals and I froze the rest. I just thank the inventors for their sealers. They do wonders for freezing things like that.
I have been to three picnics, consumed a quart of beer (I hate the stuff.) My son-in-law put a rum and coke in my hand (What part of watching what I eat do they not understand?), and eaten more BBQ, potato salad, macaroni salad and macaroni and cheese (which I made all of them) in those three settings than I have the entire year thusfar.
I have gained three pounds. Now I have twenty five to lose instead of twenty. (Oh, well.) Hey, I messed up on adding here so make that twenty three instead of twenty. That makes it sound sooooo much better.
So…it’s back to square one for the diet. I have no more parties until Thanksgiving and hopefully we’ll be back on track.
I love my family. I would love to see them more, but why does it always have to be with food?
Maybe the better question would be; why am I so weak that I don’t know how to say no to it.
Well….I guess it’s time to swallow the last of that watermelon, put on my fat pants again, and start over.
With a one and a two, touch your shoe. With a three and four, push off that floor. With a five and six…..”Doesn’t anybody know where that chocolate cake is?”
I hope your holiday was as good as ours, or even better.
I’m back and you’ll hear more from me soon. 😉
