Thursday in the city - here's my sign

Thursday, October 24, 2013

I was feeling tired and burned out on my way out of the city heading home. I had received a phone call with an update on some work we're having done at the house . . . . what was supposed to cost $300 is gonna be more like $600 . . . .

So, I was leaving town and . . .

and I saw a sign . . .

and I said to myself, here's your sign.

And I had a small cone.

So, I went inside the restaurant, rather than getting it to go,
and I sat down in a booth all by myself,
and enjoyed every single one of those 230 calories.

It coulda been a lot worse!

    OMG . . . chocolate is a food group and the answer to soooo many questions it seems! LOL

Seriously, though, good for you for going in, taking a booth, enjoying every bite of your cone! It solved your craving, you didn't over-do it and satisfied your taste.

HUGS and hope it's a good week. And hope Leroy had a good birthday. What a sweetie pie!

    That's what it is all about. Making smart decisions and moderation. Way to Spark! emoticon

We live in a house that is now over 100 years old. We have redone every room and the one thing we have discovered is that it ALWAYS costs double what they say it will!

    Sounds like you tracked it too since you know exactly how many calories it was.
