Treating myself

This is proof that many otter pops have been eaten.....see the blue

I had a great Saturday. Slept in till 5:30. That's unheard of. I almost feel gulity knwoing that Roxie is suffering at Chez Menopause. Begged off of the walk. Then decided that was stupid. Got on the bike. Found them. Got in alittle over a 2 mile walk. Then biked to see how long it will take to ge to my new job. Yep. I have an elder care job to start Monday. Not full time but it will keep the wolves at bay for the time being. I 'gridded up my loins' ( my dad's expression ) and finally wrote the letter to my boss. Haven't sent it. Waiting on some feedback. I want to be sure about it before I do that. I have put so much energy into this stupid letter. I want to move forward. I'm sick of talking about it. I am sure everyone is sick of me talking about it.

I met up with a friend and we took her kids and went to the library. I heart the library. They had a charity boutique so i browsed. I never browse. I am always in a hurry. Always in a hurry and never really very much forward. I have been thinking about lately. My mind races, but I don't feel like I am going anywhere. It's exhausting and frustrating. I am going to put some intention toward that.

We had lunch at a great little place. Had pita bread and yogurt. Then splurged on a chicken and asparagus pita sandwich. Holy cow was it good. I had the Ggirls over again last night. Mom and Dad were at childbirth class. Not much longer now. They had to tell the girls that, no the baby wasn't coming yet. We went swimming and watched movies. They are bottomless pits. This time I held firm. No overeating for anyone. I didn't make the best choices for dinner however A small piece of lasagna and left over Greek salad. Yesterday wasn't my best eating day. I was 'treated" with food all day. On to better choices today. Plan on treating That means cooking for myself.

Heading out for a podcast and a bike ride. Keep the mood and the food real............


  1. Glad you found a job - that didn't take long! Hope it will be the beginning of more wonderful things for you.

    Interesting that you don't browse normally. I like your intention of trying to slow things down a bit - will be interesting to see how that works for you.

    Oh - the chicken and asparagus pita sounds fantastic!

  2. *high fives* on the job. We're both gonna be employed. Awwww that pic is so cute.
