I am hurting today.
Monday morning indigestion.
Although we didn't have the big family gathering … no chaos, wild laughter or moderate tension … we did have food. And since Frannie must always cook in massive quantities, we had too much food.
Perhaps the variety had something to do with it as well.
Orange Glazed Ham (of course)
Spiced Leg of Lamb (I didn’t eat that!)
Seven Layer Salad
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Lemon Sponge Cake with fresh strawberries
It was delish! And I did eat in moderation, but I think the combination was not good for this gut!
Well that and I seem to be sort of addicted to Stacy's Baked Parmesan Garlic Pita Chips. They’re good for me, right?? I mean 'cause they're baked and all ... No cholesterol or Trans fat – they must be healthy! Yeah, not so much. 9 chips = 140 calories. You can not eat just 9 of these. No way, no how! I finally had to ask LittleMiss to hide the bag from MaaMaa ... who sad is that?
I love starch, what can I say? I would so much rather have chips, crackers, break, potatoes, pasta than chocolate or ice cream any day. When I don’t feel good – they’re what I want … when I do feel good, they’re what I want. This is a bad thing for a chubby housewife who is trying to become a red hot mama!
I finally met with my tax guy today. Yes, I am a procrastinator – thank you very much. I think we are going to have to PAY this year … so I have been putting it off for as long as possible. I have to get him some more numbers and I should know in about two days.
Since Mr. Farmer started his new business venture he has been a changed man. And for the better. Thanks to the advice of T-girl, I am also a better wife lately. I am still not a huge Dr. Laura fan, but she does have some good points when it comes to how we should treat our spouses.
My cute little wireless mouse is killing me. I have to change the batteries at least every 12 days. NUTS. And I know that I should take Jagular’s advice and shell out the cash for the expensive lithium batteries … I just haven’t been able to do it – I do have a rather large stock of Costco AA batteries on hand … perhaps when they are gone.
I desperately need a nap. I drank too much coffee, trying to ‘wake up’ – another reason my stomach is killing me, I am sure.
The ‘cheater’ moved out of the house this weekend. Yes, the day before Easter. I didn’t see her children (or her) at church yesterday, but the husband was there. After seeing him, I am certain he knows … even if he doesn’t admit that he knows. It sucks.
I just finished reading Stella in Heaven. A nice book. Humorous. Next up The Book of Fate by Brad Meltzer – not my normal taste but it was a gift so I will read it.
We watched Raise Your Voice (with Hilary Duff) last night. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The preteens like it.
I guess I will leave you with that …
