I am thinking about possibly returning to my South Beach Diet discussion of three weeks ago. I’m considering it. Maybe.
Then again, I may just continue to hide out behind my keyboard with a bowlful of peanut butter-filled pretzels and not blog about such controversial topics ever again.
Speaking (or not speaking) of diets, I am emceeing our homeschool co-op’s Day of Renewal tomorrow and as such needed to supplement my wardrobe. You know those three-way mirrors at the clothing store? They are the enemy.
Really, what true friend would even whisper to you what those mirrors yelled at me? It’s unprintable, really, but in the name of honest journalism I will reprint their unkind words.
They were: “Hey lady, your butt’s gotten really big!”
I’m not saying that I should diet. I’m just saying there is a difference between eating for two and eating for twenty. I’m just saying that perhaps I should lay off that bowl of stuffed pretzels. That’s all I’m saying.
I bought another 44-oz container of peanut butter-filled pretzels at Sam’s Club yesterday. They’re for my husband.
In other news and in honor of that great big game coming up, I thought I would post a couple of pictures from my college days.
I’ll bet you had no idea I was such a contender.
We were neither the Minnesota Steelers nor the Moorhead Cardinals (though you might think so with all that red). We were the Dragons, and the rest of the team was most thankful for the refining influence I provided in that skirt. At 5’O” and a mere 115 pounds, (oh, those were the days), I was not what those 300-lb defensive linebackers expected.

I have joined an online quilting bee and for the next 12 months will be in the company of some of the finest seamstresses the internet has ever known.
This despite having never ever not-even-once-I-tell-you quilted.
