Well, yesterday was yesterday. I normally look forward to holidays. I love my dad, uncles, cousins. My sister can be really iffy, sometimes fine - sometimes horrific. My dad's wife on the other hand . . . we'll get to that.
Day started off good. I walked both dogs together, something I never do as they like to go at different paces. We had a great time, Gypsy even loped/jogged a bit. It was funny!
I cooked, I really did. Made a Spaghetti squash dish out of the Spark people cookbook. Tweaked it a bit but it turned out great. I've never done Spaghetti squash before but I can guarantee it will become a winter staple!
Anyway, got to Dad's at 3. He and the wife were already at it. She is mean to him, nasty to us, and and just rude. She goes through stages where she "acts" like she wants to be friendly, she's not in one of those modes right now. Right now my son is the devil, my hubby is stupid, and I'm the worst person on the planet (except for my dad and sister).
I stayed in calorie and portion through dinner. I was sticking with my dad and cousin. When she just started in. Let's just say, normally we sit around and drink and gab until midnight or 1am. We were to last one's to leave yesterday and I couldn't take it by 8pm. I was so upset and frustrated with her, dad popped a bottle of Merlot an I was glad to finish it.
Then I got home and felt guilty for leaving him like that (yes I know, adult and he CHOOSES to live with it). That I snarfed a big piece of apple pie. Not my finest hour. So, I was over yesterday by wine and pie. Oh well.
So I'm hoping Christmas goes better. I know what to eat and who to avoid!
Warm Wags everyone!
