Back from breakfast, veggies prepped for dinner, and the first snack consumed. It's so sunny and hot in the backyard I have to go lay out for a moment...
I ended up puttering out back doing small things I knew Mom would appreciate. I was also afraid of breaking the old straps on the chaise lounges! Then in for the game, a couple of fun commercials, and dinner during the half time show. An exciting and semi-controversial ending to the game and four tiny chocolate chip cookies later and a long day feels like it's finally over. As is my visit. In the morning I pack and leave for home. My back is pinching, and it pisses me off that the little I've done is enough to trigger the pain. Grrrr. But I am on the right track, and if I can keep losing 5lbs a month I'll be 25lbs lighter the next time I am down. I can and will do this.
Mom, "All we need now is a bowl of ice cream."
Me, "If you like I can run down and get some."
Mom, "I can't have any ice cream!"
Me, "Hey, you're the one who said you wanted some."
Mom, "It's too bad we don't have any ice cream to have with these cookies."
I kept my mouth shut.
