Night In

Y'all would be happy to know I listened to my inner voice and just said no. I chose not to go to the game. I didn't go with Kyla either.

Instead T came over early and we went walking with Maricel, Channy, Mina, and RJ. Afterward we cooked dinner here.

On the menu? Salad. Steamed squash and zucchini. Turkeyloaf (meatloaf but instead of hamburger meat I use lean ground turkey meat). Mashed taters. All cooked from scratch. With love.





YUM-O!

We have not busted into the dessert yet but trust that we will. Right now T and I are sitting side by side on the couch, letting the food digest, with laptops on our laps, CourtTV on in the background...just chillin'.

Thanks for the thoughts Kim and Wendy. I am happy with my decision to not go tonight.

I am sad to have not had the chance to hang with Kyla since last Thursday but I wasn't feeling like a night out on the town. I wanted to stay in with some of my girls and take it easy.

This is the stage of life I am in right now. Trying to do better for myself.

Like I said a few days ago...stop the self abuse and start the self love. Listen to the whispers so they do not turn into screams.

We only have one body. I'm not getting any younger. I gotta' do what is right for me. Does that make me selfish? I'd like to think not. If I am the best I can be, I have more to offer others. Get what I am saying here? I hope so.

For now, there is some chocolate cake calling my name. T is nodding her head in agreement.

Catch up to y'all laters.

Oh hell yeah. Chocci cake ALWAYS wins over a guy and ballgame no doubt about that one.

I think it's great that you are taking care of yourself. I mean, sheesh, if you don't who will???

I'm proud of you for listening to your inner voice. HAHA, my inner voice just said "why she get chocci cake and i don't?" my inner voice is a large woman trying to get out. mmhmm.

These photos looked SO yummy that I totally went out for groceries today and am making a meatloaf right this very minute. The aroma is already filling up the house. That, and a pot of mashed potatoes. Thanks for the inspiration!

Kim,
Is it bad if I had cake for breakfast this morning?

It's ok to indulge every once in a while right?

Sunny,
You are welcome. I love home cooked comfort food.

Dawn,
Hee Hee. Me too.
