Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jog...

I made it home safely from my little trip. It took me 3 hours one way because the roads near me weren't in great shape. Kinda icy going over the first mountain. So, I drove nice and slow and pulled over a lot to let the lunatics that wanted to speed pass me.

Got this cartoon in the mail from my sister-in-law. She cut it out of First magazine and I just had to share it with you.

I wasn't real good on the road. Got hungry and the only place to stop was a fast food place, so I got a plain cheeseburger and took off one of the buns. Alas, they didn't have chicken. Actually this place's specialty is biscuits and I knew if I got anything on a biscuit I'd eat the WHOLE thing. Was hungry coming home too but waited until I got home and had a piece of left over chicken. That satisfied for a little while but I'm going to have to have something else sooooooonnnnnnn.

Stopped at a grocery store (the same franchise I shop at in my town) in a little town on my way home and they had very little of the stuff I normally buy. They didn't even have any light bread and only one kind of whole wheat bread to boot. Sure glad I don't live there. I wouldn't be able to stay on this healthy eating life style. Their produce area was the pits too.

Have a great Sunday!!

Hi Deborah -

I'm glad you made it home, safe and sound.

I've been catching up on your blog and thought that it's interesting that you're getting bad weather so early. We've had unusually warm weather here in southern CA. I wonder if we couldn’t share a little of both with each other? It sure doesn’t feel like Thanksgiving here!

I would have never thought of taking off one of the buns. Good thought!

I know the roads you had to travel on and I can't believe you drove on them in the ice. They're the most amazingly swervy and curvy roads when they're dry. I can't imagine them in the snow. Ugh!

So glad you made it back home safe!

Glad to hear you had a good trip and made it home OK. You have way more will power than me, only eating half the roll! I would have ate it all, counted it, but probably would have enjoyed using the calories I wasted on something more special later in the day. Good for you!!!!!!! Keep up the good work!

Glad you got over those roads safly. Good job on eating wise. Hope you have some good weather now.

Your post shows with great emphasis how out of touch our society is (generally speaking) with healthy eating. I'm sometimes so amazed at how little this smaller grocery stores do have in the 'healthy arena'. And it's not the grocery stores's the consumers. A grocery store is not going to cater to only one or two people. And meanwhile, our society gets bigger and bigger.
