It's been awhile since I have made a blog post. I spent the last legs of winter break with the family. Today...school started for me. I am less than thrilled with that. I don't know why I am such a drag about it?? I have gotten straight A's since I have started last March. Maybe it's because I know any free time I did have.... to do pretty much anything I wanted is now....GONE! So like I said, I spent the last legs of winter break with the family. We played Wii games and snacked on healthy foods. My mom and I took my daughter out shopping and had lunch together one day. That was nice. Now....back to the grind of things. I must admit, I did not get any exercise in. I think I may use my off days on the weekends. That is when my husband has off work, and we tend to be lazy and want to sleep in. We try hard to avoid what I call, "The Mothers" which is the hubby's mom...and of course my mom. My mom is not much of a bother of course. She rarely comes over....but my mother-in-law comes over EVERY weekend for some small or odd reason! No rest for the wicked!
Anyhow, as I was saying...I am back on track. I plan on taking a short nap, then getting my exercising in. Of course I will do my required discussion questions for school, and make a wonderful healthy dinner for my family. I will say however, I am very disappointed with my husband and son. On Saturday when my mom and I took my daughter shopping, I let my husband and son in charge of picking up some items at the store. When I returned, I was pleased to see that they did in fact pick up the items I had requested, but a TON of sweets!!!! AHHHHHHHH! What was my husband thinking? He is now a diabetic and I am what I call a Mrs. Fatterson! He bought a dozen doughnuts, a fairly large cupcake-CAKE, and six assorted cupcake holder filled candies made of chocolate! Is he trying to kill himself? Good Lord. I only ate two candies! But come-on! I should NOT have even had one! And my diabetic husband should no longer be cruising down the fully loaded sugar isle! So...for the past couple of days, when I get up to make my coffee, the sweets and I meet face-to-face! I give them the worst stink eye I can give and sulk away...half asleep, wishing I could dive right in! If those sweets even know how lucky they were!!! And why do bakers make frosting so damn colorful anyway? As if I could miss those sweet cupcakes?
On that note my fellow Sparks, be strong. Wake up, do a little dance, make a little food, and get down today!
