Re-entry to the real world is seldom languid, is it? Smile.
The saving grace for us (returning from vacation) was that our offices were closed on Monday because of the 4th of July. However, our youth did begin a missions trip this week; working daily in our community and sleeping at the church. So of course, we wanted to come up and visit them on Day 1. And there were a few errands that had to be run.......... You know how it is.
You know that scripture that says, "Be sure your sins will find you out."? (I've quoted this in the original, intensified, King James Version for you because that's how Mom made us memorize this mischief-deterring-scripture.)
Well, it seems that all the vacation relaxing and resting and lolling I did combined with all the sweets-tasting and treat snitching to bring me to a startling moment of truth this morning on Ye Olde Bathroom Scale!!!!
Yes, I now weigh exactly what I did when I was in my twenties.........going into the labor room to deliver a baby!!
You will be proud to know that I quickly harnessed the horse-dog, Bella; added the Elvis-dog, Gracie and headed out for a brisk walk hoping that one morning of exercise would somehow undo all the indulging I had been doing over the past nine days. Just as you suspected, it did not work!
But I do plan on trying again tomorrow morning because now I'm pretty much at the edge of all my largest size clothes. And some people are beginning to notice that I seem to be wearing the same pair of black slacks every other day while cleverly alternating with the black elastic waist skirt. Sigh.
Frank just flew in with our usual Wednesday evening dinner of Chinese. (Yes, I AM aware that Chinese does not usually qualify as diet food. THANK YOU!! But I really am hungry and I don't encourage you to get between me and dinner under any circumstances.)
Let us all lift our voices and join Annie in singing, "TOMORROW! TOMORROW! I LOVE YA, TOMORROW!.........."
