I stayed up way too late last night finishing a book. This Book. I thought about suggesting that anyone who has doubts about their own fitness as a parent should read it, then I remembered one or two really terrible parents I know who probably shouldn't get any funny ideas that they are actually swell at their job. I found myself trying to find a single character I could find sympathetic. I guess I could stretch and say there were a couple secondary characters, but it would be a stretch. Then again, all the other characters were viewed through the lens of the narrator who was truly horrible.
This is my newest obsession snack. In fact, I have a small can sitting next to me right now. Even Phenom likes them and usually wasabi or horseradish isn't his thing. Now that I know they come in 1 lb bags, I might have a real problem.
Over the Easter weekend, Phenom and I took a mini-break and headed up to his old hometown. We stay in a hotel now because he no longer has living relatives in the area. But, his little home town is a lovely place. And, DAMN! they wear good shoes. I always find shoes when we visit. I bought some of these, 30% off. And, something kinda like these at 50% off. There was one more shoe store I wanted to visit (store wide sale) but we kept getting there when they were closed.
I keep declaring weekends "diet free" times. I was so disappointed to find that those forbidden foods that I so looked forward to weren't as tasty as I hoped they would be. The fried fish seemed dry. The rolls and bread just seemed bland. Damn it. We even stopped by a Dunkin' Donuts, and my usual chocolate cake donut just seemed dull. Oh well, more wasabi almonds I guess.
