Clearly today is Take Friday Off day. The gym was nearly empty and the pool wasn't even crowded and there was no traffic coming home at all. Maybe Bernie won't piss off too many people this afternoon when his rush hour rally happens in the baseball stadium. They already had all the queuing fences up this morning. Traffic is expected to get gnarly starting about noon. So Goodwill will happen first thing this morning. Oh and I need gas.
I'm running out of doll room. I think this is going to be a monthly thing. Delivery day is next Friday. It's a good thing I don't get many visitors, especially this time of month. They would have no place to sit.
Hunter,next door, got to baking yesterday with root beer. He brought me a slice of root beer chocolate cake/brownie. And then, about 4 hours later, he brought me a plate of root beer white chocolate chip cookies - still warm. The cookies tasted like straight up root beer but way sweeter and with a cookie texture. Not my favorite. But the cake/brownie... I happened to have some vanilla ice cream in the freezer and the two together tasted like root beer float. Delicious. Thankfully, I only used up half the cake slice. So I have another root beer float now waiting in the freezer.
In spite of the above, I'm doing well not over doing the eating. No candy. In fact, I bagged it all up and put it in a drawer - out of sight. I don't love the 'approved' snacks so much so I only snack now if I'm dying of hunger. Seems to be working. I've dropped a couple of pounds already. But, even more significant, I'm pretty sure I can keep it up until May.
Ok, coffee done. Time to hit the road.
