Eating Cake

Posted by on April 29, 2010

In the last twelve days we’ve celebrated three birthdays. Robin was first, followed by Chris and now today Jay turns 55. I have never eaten so much cake in such a short time in my life. Add to that Chris’ penchant for buying snacks and goodies to keep us company at night while we are entertained by sitcoms and reality shows. I need to get back to those campfires and evening walks or else I’m going to explode. It’s no wonder my triglyceride count is off the charts. Guess I’m not batting that thousand anymore after our annual physicals. Everything else seems to be fine according to bloodwork, so I have to work on getting off the sugar as well as my ass on a daily basis. Robin’s bloodwork was “spot on”, however, she has been having chest wheezing ever since we left Spearfish, SD last March. So our physician ordered a check x-ray for her along with some breathing tests to define the problem. That’s a bit of a concern for me as I’m a worrier, thinking the worst and what should be done.

In the meantime, we’ve had a lot of free time during the day to go through our things and downsize again. When we began our fulltime journey last January, we took everything we thought we needed. Little did we know how much we don’t need. As the months went buy we would continue to purge, but at the same time we accumulated other items that struck our fancy. Little by little we weaned ourselves into making necessary purchases and only buying frivolously on occasion.  Grills are a great example. I’ve had three to date and still not sure I’m satisfied with what I have. Too big, or too heavy, not enough cooking space or whatever is always something I’m contemplating. My problem is I just don’t grill. I cook all the time and I enjoy doing it outside. I also need to be able to cook with large pots as I’m conjuring up an idea for some great barbecue sauce. So I think I’ve come up with the solution in the Coleman Grill which can have burner tops added instead of the grates. If you have a better suggestion, let me know before I make another purchase mistake.

    Happy Belated Birthday to Chris and Jay!!! You all look terrific and “full of cake”.This is our last day here at the beach-we are leaving in the wee hours of tomorrow morning and expect to be home Sunday night and back to our own reality show. Can’t wait to see you all
