The End of Halloween Candy

So I decided to throw out the last of Timothy and Christopher's Halloween candy after putting the last "good" candy in Timothy's lunch for tomorrow. There's just no point in keeping it around for the boys to whine about and for me to munch on when I don't need it. I decided it was better in the garbage than on me. Then I opened the pantry to find that there's at least a dozen full sized candy bars leftover from what we were handing out. I give up.

Of course, I made peanut blossom cookies with the boys today forgetting that there's chocolate sandwich cookies, candied popcorn, and more sweets in the cupboard already. Good thing I don't have a big sweet tooth.

Exhausted but not in a healty way

I don't know if being on my feet for 2 1/2 hours at William's party counts as exercise but I'm exhausted. And yes, I had pizza and cake and junk, so really not such a healthy day.

I did step on the scale this morning and was down about 3-4 lbs from the last time a week or so ago. That was kind of exciting!

It's going to be just us for Thanksgiving, which is good and bad. No pressure about having certain foods, which is nice, or cleaning the house, but guests can be fun and make it feel like more of a special occasion. But I think it will be nice, kind of relaxed.
