After being snow bird blocked for the past two weekends, I finally got here early enough for the top load washing machines.
I think probably the fact that it’s Easter also had a part in my success. I assume eggs are being hidden or services attended in lieu of early morning laundry.
As for me? I’m doing brunch at 3:30 with my family.
OK, so that’s not exactly brunch time, but was the earliest reservation.
It’s Linner really isn’t it? Not brunch. I don’t care – food at any time is fine by me.
Which reminds me … I’m STILL gaining weight.
I started out super excited about this, because I needed to put some pounds on. But I haven’t reached a plateau yet – I just keep gaining.
My doctor did mention something about my meds slowing my metabolism – but I didn’t put that fun fact together with my scale until later.
I’m going to have to slow down on the food debauchery because I for one, cannot afford a new wardrobe. In my smugness I donated all my larger clothes – now it’s just daily ‘snugness!’
That’s my only concern really – having to spend money on clothes, because let’s face it, no ones seeing me naked in the foreseeable future.
Found a chocolate wrapper on the kitchen counter this morning and I kid you not, I don’t remember tucking into that last night. I had a candy black out! (Is that a thing? It should be a thing. It’s a thing now.)
Shame washed over me – then I spied with my little eye, 2 bricks of chocolate left in the package and shame be damned, I ate 1 of the survivors.
I’ll try to restrain myself from any other sweets that may leap in my path today – but AM going to gorge myself on ‘Linner’. I mean, it’s a buffet – it would be rude not to partake in excess!
Happy Easter to all my Soupers who celebrate it – and happy Sunday to all who don’t.
Tomorrow is Good Friday, and as I have an Easter post planned for my son, who turns 18 that day – I’ll say Happy Easter to you all now. There’s just something about Spring … birth, new beginnings and let’s face it … chocolate. Pastels and scavenger hunts … that last grasp on mild weather before Summer begins to stir. It’s a Season where anything is possible. Rebirth.
I wish for all of you a heart full of possibilities and renewed hope. And chocolate.
