Honestly! First, I went to the store to buy a new pair of jeans. Which, of course, is a despised sort of thing for me to do. But as my old pair was ripping in the inner thigh, it had to be done. Yeah, that’s right. I only buy new pants when I absolutely am in danger of ripping out of an old pair – don’t judge!
Anyhow, the good news is this – the pair I bought was a size smaller! Yay me! Better yet, I also bought myself a new shirt – and it came from the non-fat-lady section of the store!! That’s right, I got to buy clothing in the normal-sized-clothes area! Sure, it’s a t-shirt, so it’s stretchy… possibly a blouse type of deal would not fit me, but hey – I am gonna celebrate the XL, anyway!
(this is where I do the happy dance…)
Then the 2nd amazing thing happened. I made dinner. From scratch.
Okay, for a whole lot of people – woman and wives especially – that’s like “whoopdi freakin doo” I suppose… but for me? I don’t cook. I despise cooking. Baking, sure. I love to bake and I do it alot. But not cooking. The “whys” are long and involved, and that might be a post for another day… suffice it to say it’s a rare day when I make dinner. When I do, I have a couple things I like to make. The one I made last night is “Dinner in a Pumpkin’. Yeah, it’s an autumn kinda thing. I really like it. And I think my family did too!
