Arrggghhhh! That was not a sexy pirate’s “arrggghhhh,” but rather an “arrrggghhh” of frustation because I ate really healthy (healthily? healthfully?) all day Thursday and yet the scale this morning showed a half-pound gain. Does Sugarbaker’s Chocolate Granola really have that many calories????? I’ve got to get a handle on this middle-age spread that’s … well … spreading. Yuck.
I also am missing the Cutest Baby Ever — grandson Nolan.
I haven’t seen him for almost two weeks (since were were all in Pensacola) and my daughter Liz says he has grown so much. I thought about running over to Huntsville to see him today, but we’re all gathering at my parents’ house in Manchester, Tenn., tomorrow, so I know I’ll see him then, although I’ll have to share him with everybody. In fact, I’ll be a good grandma and let everybody else hold him since I can theoretically hold him anytime. I stayed away this past week while Jason, Nolan’s daddy, enjoyed his last few days of summer vacation before he headed back to his high-school teaching job.
You can see why I miss this little guy!!! Can’t wait until he knows his grandma!!!!!
I’m also headed to a meeting of the local PEO chapter this morning. This is a philanthropic-education women’s group that I’m a third-generation member of. While I was working at the newspaper I couldn’t go to the meetings, but since I’ve become a freelance writer and my schedule is my own, one of my goals has been to become a regular and active member again. This is a great bunch of women and I’m looking forward to reconnecting.
