Today's challenges

Friday, December 07, 2007

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.

    I hope you had a wonderful time at your daughter and her friend out! You're office party sounds very upscale (wine and cheese) hehehe. What fun, I used to love office parties.

    Enjoy your daughter's birthday dinner. It's worth going out of your calorie range for. I'm sure you're not going to double your calories or anything that drastic. Funny about the eyes. ;-)
