It sure was a pretty morning with snow flurries all around. I love winter on the condition that I can a) shovel snow or b) look at it while bundled up indoors.
My husband wanted to go out for breakfast and check on the married children.
At the restaurant, I managed to linger in the restroom and take my time at the buffet counter. I only took an omelet and ate it rather slowly. By the time I finished it, he had downed 2 heaping plates full and was finally ready to go.
The kids managed rather well considering we had 10 inches of new snow with another 3 inches expected by tomorrow. My oldest son was without power, but they were able to restore it rather quickly - by noon. My oldest daughter was not called in to work so stayed bundled at home with her family. My youngest daughter had stayed up all night and was finally sleeping. And my youngest son (who still lives at home) was waiting for someone to call him to help do snow removal.
After the outing, I went grocery shopping. By the time I was done, I was tired and hungry. I had a small corn muffin and a low-fat mozzerella stick with a sugar free jello pudding snack. Then I rested for about an hour.
I was able to clean most of my house this week. I feel so much better when I am able to be active. Then for dinner we had ham, macaroni and cheese, and broccoli. My husband and son enjoyed the meal while I picked at it. I detest macaroni and cheese and while I love ham, it gives me a headache. I came in at lower calories than I probably should, but how do I know if it is completely accurate? Anyway, I feel satisfied and that is probably the best indication anyway.
