It's been an interesting week. Yes, I'm up a little but not as much as I thought I would be. I am now so old, with a number so high that when spoken only dogs can hear it!!!
The week started when my brother came by on Monday to celebrate an early birthday with me (it was Tuesday) and to see one of my sons little league games. As a special gift, he brought me a chocolate mousse birthday cake made at one of the best bakeries in the region. Ok, that's the bad news but the good news is, as much as I love chocolate, I really don't like chocolate mousse! Ah! I just had a little bit (although the chocolate ganache on top of the cake was yummy.
The next day my daughter came in from school. She had a few days off between finals and thought it would be a good idea to take home some of her stuff and come and celebrate her mom's birthday.
So, the next night we went out to one of our favorite places called "Ricks". The food is always great but hey, it was my birthday. ok, that's the bad news. The "strange" good news was that for the first time ever, the food was awful (so was the service). It was so bad I sent something back and gave my son my meal (his was inedible). So we just went home and the kids had some cake. I had a taste of the frosting, that was it.
Last night, since my daughter was leaving today to go back to school, we went out for pizza. We went to the place we love and yes, I had a couple of pieces (not big ones). It was great. We came home, the kids had some cake (I didn't) and what was left I threw out.
This morning I was thinking I probably put on about 3 lbs. but it was just 1 1/2. I don't think it's real weight and I am hoping it will be gone by weigh in Sunday. That's the only weight I really count.
So, let's hope it's gone and maybe it will take a friend or two. It's 11 am and I've already taken a 4 mile hike!!!
