Yesterday I blew my "no sweets until Easter" fast. Two (!) glazed doughnuts, and then later my m-i-l made a lemon cake...I really didn't have a chance. Tonight there will be wedding cake--let's just face it, it's over. I hope God understands. At least I didn't cheat at all before that. It was a good thing to do even though I didn't feel more spiritual (I wonder why that is?) I'm going to try to stop eating sweets on a daily basis and wait for special occasions. Cake is definitely a special occasion.
I was starting to feel kind of housebound since while we're in Louisiana my husband works all the time and I don't have any errands to run or friends to visit. So yesterday I went shopping, ostensibly for a gift for the aforementioned wedding, and stayed gone for 2 1/2 hours--mostly in Target, but also in Ross, Marshalls, and Bed Bath & Beyond. I got a nice present and bought myself a VERY cute denim skirt. For $16, when the one I had been looking at, at Banana Republic, was $60. Score! I didn't feel tempted to buy other stuff even though I looked at everything. I just love having some time to look around without having to deal with hyper kids.
If I don't get to post until after the weekend, (we'll be traveling tomorrow), I wish you all a happy and blessed Easter.
