No late night snacking tonight. I will not snack tonight. No looking for a snack tonight. I will stay away from snacks tonight. No snacking tonight. If I tell myself this enough, it will become real, right?... Read more
Back to the trenches

It has been a really lovely few days. We had the college kid home, and I hugged and smooched him dozens of times. He's a good kid and indulges his mom's wackiness. And yes, I may have eaten more than I should. The kid's back in his dorm ... Read more
Learning to be selfish

The kid's club team had another soccer game today, against an opponent they play every season. Usually they get blown out - the other team is very deep in talent and very physical. But today, somehow, the kid's team kept it close, and lost by ... Read more
Desperate measures

I did really well on Thanksgiving itself until the evening, when for no good reason at all, I started snacking on the honey-roasted mixed nuts that I had put out for others. I wasn't hungry, I didn't *need* them, but they were so very tempting.... Read more
Stuffed

I wish I had a picture of our Thanksgiving table today. I made a turkey and heated up a fake turkey roll for our vegan guests, and made 8 side dishes. Our guests brought 3 Indian and 1 Middle Eastern side dishes. We had 3 desserts. I did my ... Read more
A cornucopia of gratitude

I am grateful for so many things today. - my Mom had a health scare today. She fainted and fell, triggering the medical alert. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out; the problem seems to be low blood pressure due to a recent cha... Read more
Black Wednesday

I don't like shopping. At least in stores - I don't like crowds, I don't like wandering around not finding what I need. My idea of good shopping is to go straight into the store, buy what I need, and then walk straight back out. So, Black Fri... Read more

Already? We are already lightly covered in snow - we had a weekend dusting and are still coated in white. It was cooooold out there today. How did fall end so quickly and winter appear out of nowhere? The kid had her first driving class ... Read more
Late night fantasies

The kid has an entire week off school. And I have to get up in a few hours for work. Of course I spent the weekend being a lazy butt and didn't get any work work done, so I have a pile waiting for me tomorrow. So instead of doing actual... Read more
Fully stocked and ready for battle

Another indoor club soccer game and the kid scored her team's only goal. They tried their best, but still lost - a fair outcome so not surprising or all that disappointing. We let the kid choose dinner, which is our custom after games. We... Read more
First turkey in sight

The college kid will be home for Thanksgiving, and is bringing a buddy who isn't able to visit his family. So we will do the whole turkey dinner, and decided to invite several people from work who are far from their families. It'll be 10... Read more

Warning: there is a lot of food discussion today! I'm using this blog to record my thoughts and minimize my panic! So this year I am stuck planning the work holiday party. It's mixed potluck/catering - usually about 30-40 people will bri... Read more
Another temptation

I remember being a teenager and being hungry all the time. I ate everything I could get my hands on, and my body flourished. Normal healthy teenage stuff. Our 15 year old is like that, except she's also much more athletic. She plays com... Read more
A big scary tedious chore

We have an annual winter holiday party at work. It's really fun - there are music, skits, silly awards. And really filling - usually a huge appetizer spread which starts off the feeding frenzy, then the main lunch which includes turkey and fix... Read more
The woman of his dreams
Tuesday, November 17, 2015      3 comments

A couple of days ago, the hub woke up downright giddy. "I had a great dream!" he said. "Want to hear about it? You were in it!" It turned out that in his dream, I had paid Mark Knopfler, one of his favorite musicians, to give him a 90 mi... Read more
