Ah, another magic Monday. Erase your slate, renew your commitments, enjoy the week.
I just took my darling Daughter and her beau out to breakfast to celebrate Christmas. I gave them their presents, some bluetooth headphones and other miscellaneous things I thought of.
I love giving presents, because I love thinking of things to give that people didn't think of, and might like. Those headphones were a total surprise, and for two kids that have their phones velcro-ed to their hands, I cannot imagine why they didn't have them before.
We had fun eating at the "Pancake House", which is an awesome, always crowded breakfast place. They got omelets and pancakes and I ate fruit and dry toast. Did I want an omelet? Nope. I was perfectly satisfied, and they both looked at me when I ordered, kind of like, are you going to say anything...no I am not. I am not in charge of your health, you are adults.
I am in charge of mine, and I am so damned happy about all of it. I am delighted that I LOVE fruit, that a piece of sourdough toast is a treat, and that I can drink coffee with no half and half, because I don't want to waste the calories on something so insignificant. I did have a bite of my DD's omelet, and thought it was pretty good, but not worth the hundreds of calories.
I have become a health fiend, but just for me. I am not going to turn into someone who talks about food all the time, one who admonishes people for eating what they want. This is THEIR lives, and they have to figure it all out for themselves.
I'm off to California tomorrow, and I have not even started to think of packing. Perhaps I should get to it! Part of my magnificent Monday.
Have a magic Monday!
