O.M.God! Too much food yesterday! How’s this for desserts alone: Rice krispies treats (see pic as promised) bread pudding, canoli, almond raspberry torte, cheesecake and chocolate cake! No wonder I’m overweight! To be honest though, I only ate one slice of the torte and some cheesecake. But it was the tri tip, deviled eggs, cheesy potatoes and manicotti before dessert that did me in! I didn’t touch the sweet rolls though! Mmm, but I did have some garlic peppers. Slurp. Oh, and some good merlot. Oh, then there was the roasted garlic brie before dinner, and the baked apricot and brie stuffed pastries, and the guacamole, and the-the-the, ugh! Too much food!
So of course, I’m dieting today. I really want to toss everything left over away, but I can’t bring myself to do it. Besides, the rest of the family will scream bloody murder. I’m just going to have to exhibit some self restraint.
Pregnant daughter has her first doctor appointment today, and her hubby took the day off to go with her. They are very excited. I had planned to go with my daughter, but I think I need to butt out on this one. It’s her and her hubby’s baby. They should enjoy this appointment together without mom butting in. L I really wanted to go too, but told hubby last night I was going to let them know just before they were ready to leave that I was going to stay home. They can show me the little sonogram blob when they get home. Pout. I can go next time.
So my eldest son who will be 23 next month and who lives the bachelor life with two other bachelors took the plunge yesterday: He became a father. Yep, it’s a girl, all one pound of her. She is the sweetest little kitten you will ever see! She’s white with caramel undertones, and has the biggest bluest eyes I have ever seen on a cat, dog or human! Gorgeous. So what is this six-foot-two, two-hundred-thirty pound bad ass alpha male gonna call his little bundle of joy? Snerk, he suggested Snowflake and I about fell off my chair. You gotta understand, my son is the ultimate guy. All male, a charmer who the girls totally want to tame. For him to look at me as he cuddled the fur ball and aks, “How about snowball, mom?” I lost it. We all did. He was serious. I figured he’d want to name her something stupid like Beevis, or Butthead, or Cocaine. But no, he likes Snowball, or Snowflake. I suggested Sapphire because of her eyes, and my youngest son informed me that was ‘gay.’ Whatev. So, she remains nameless for the moment. We’ll see how this plays out. Oh, and you should see what a worrywart my big bad boy has become. I’ve talked to him three times this morning! And, get this, since he had to work today, his oldest sister is babysitting because he couldn’t bare to leave his baby alone! Hah hah hah! Ah, pay back is good.
So, what’s everyone up to this week? I have lunch dates tomorrow, Wed and Thurs. Fri hair and some last minute shopping before I leave for Orlando next week. Anyone going to the RT convention?
