Over the Weekend
I stopped by the 16th birthday dinner of a girl who, for some reason, totally idolizes me. Her mother died when she was about ten and I've felt such a burden for her ever since. When I arrived at the family only dinner, she bear-hugged me and began sobbing. I can't explain the emotions felt when experiencing something like that.
I did great on my diet. My only cheat was a small bag of popcorn at the Pinewood Derby. I'm down 7 lbs.
I bought two tiny potted plants for my kids' elementary teachers. They were on special at the grocery store for $1.50. I figured that the care of my children is definitely worth a buck and a half.
I also made sure to return my shopping cart to the proper place in the grocery store parking lot. I always go the extra mile to place my cart inside the last remaining cart to save the 75-year-old cart guy named Virgil an extra step.
I got to experience some awesome church music on Sunday.
And I kept a somewhat clean house through it all.
