Why, oh, why do we do this to ourselves. Left for the dentist early armed with floss and a toothbrush, because I was stopping for lunch on the way. I did something I'd never done before. I went to a restaurant (instead of a drive through) all by myself. I've always been self conscious about eating alone in a restaurant so I just decided that today I'd give it a try and see how it went. I took my book and read between ordering and getting my meal. It went fine and I didn't feel awkward at all, like I thought I would. Then came the meal. It wasn't worth the calories. I was very disappointed with myself when I left. And to beat it all I gained a pound today too. I knew I would so I wasn't really disappointed about that. It seems that I always gain a half a pound to a pound after a good loss.
I stopped at Wally World on the way home and stocked up on Mary Fran's crack (granola bars), protein bars and stuff for low fat desserts. That stuff I can not get at my local market so I have to stock up on it when I'm near Wally World. I even got the ingredients to make the scrumptious looking cake Mary Fran talked about the first of this week. I decided to bake it in small loaf pans and try freezing it, because I don't think I can wait until company comes to try it. So, just in case I really like it, I got enough stuff for two batch's so I'll have it for my company in October.
While I was at Wally World I also bought myself a pair of flannel jammie bottoms in a size medium and THEY FIT! I also picked up a size large shirt to keep around and work to under-grow into it. I didn't try it on there because, of course, it wouldn't fit. When I got it home and looked closer it is half spandex. ARGH! That thing is going back in two weeks when I go back to the dentist to get my crown. What I found interesting is that all the clothes in the plus size section of that dreadful store were really cute and the stuff in the regular section were hideous.
Something interesting happened at the dentist. I have to precede it with the fact that my dentist is a very good looking, tall, silver haired, 50ish, hunk. Very, very nice to look at with my mouth gaped opened, but I digress. I took my book in there with me because he is always running back and forth between two patients and I usually have some down time while waiting on him to return his attention on me. I was reading and all of a sudden the book had a really, really sexy scene in it. I slammed it shut immediately. There is no way I could have read something like that and then looked at him with his hands in my mouth without blushing. And I don't blush easily, folks.
I can't figure out why I'm setting here typing when I should be dead to the world in bed. I couldn't get to sleep last night. Kept turning the light back on and reading after a half hour of trying to fall asleep. The last time I turned the light off was after 5:00 AM. So I've been running all day on about 4 1/2 hours of sleep and I'm really not that sleepy right now.
Have a happy, out there.
