Like most of you, I threw caution to the wind during my (too brief) vacation.  I bought junk food at the grocery store, and I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies before the trip that ended up FAR bigger than I intended.  Or that any rational human being would ever prepare at one time for a family of three.

I told all of y’all not to feel guilty about it, and b’gawd, I’m not going to feel guilty about it, either. I’ll probably pay for it in a few different ways, but I won’t feel guilty about it.

On the plus side, we walked quite a bit in less-than-comfy temperatures and mostly survived.   (Poor Dys’s Viking ancestry did NOT prepare her for this sort of weather.  On the other hand, our son has a better than average chance of looking like Alexander Skarsgård because of said heritage.  Pick your poison.)

As it turns out, all day Saturday I was wearing my belt on the tightest notch…and I didn’t notice until day’s end.  That’s a minor victory.  I’m not sure I could wear it on that notch today, but hey, it’s within striking range…

    I’m surrounded by women and nobody commented on the Skarsgard pic?

    Didn’t see THAT coming…

    That’s because *I* hadn’t been here yet – MEOW!

      Yep, that’s basically what I expected.

      Heh. In life, Boy doesn’t really resemble him, but it’s funny…truthfully, if I posted pics of Dys and I you could look at Skarsgard and maybe convince yourself that our kid could look like that.
