Fortunately I didn't get a headache from the dilation of my eyes. But they're still dilated today--I wonder whether that's why (unconsciously) several men at work have been a little extra-friendly! I've read that our pupils dilate when we are attracted to someone. :-) Anyway, the guys haven't been out of line or anything. On a more practical note, I pulled down the blinds in my office: the day is gray, but there's snow on the ground & all the whiteness is a bit bright for my eyes.
Our company is having its holiday party today starting at 3:00. It's very genteel: wine, champagne & other beverages, fancy sandwiches, cheeses, probably little shishkebobs & other appetizers. I could eat enough to not need dinner, except . . .
I'll leave a little early because tonight we're taking my daughter & a friend to a good Colombian restaurant to celebrate her birthday! Colombian food is high in carbs & fat, so I will need to take extra care. And she has been given SEVERAL birthday cakes by friends & workmates, so she'll bring one of them to share with us afterward at home.
Very likely I won't stay within my recommended calorie range today.
