Oh, man….what a weekend! Friday evening we went to our golf club for a “Putting Contest”. They had set up a putt-putt mini-golf course inside the clubhouse. It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I got hungry and succumbed to the taquitos that were being passed around. Corn is not my friend at all. And I knew what would happen to me as a consequence. Anyway, afterward went to a restaurant and had a wonderful marlin with pureed baby carrots. Way yummy!
Then, Saturday was the big one. We went to the annual fundraiser gala for our local performing arts center. It’s a black tie thing. Went to the beauty salon for an up-do. Gold glitter sprayed in my hair. Wore a shiny gold tunic and jacket with flowing black pants. Sensible lady shoes. Not too high. I tend to stumble a lot. We had Tony Bennett as the performer. The man still has it. It was a wonderful concert. He sang all his old hits. There was a dinner afterward catered by the best Italian restaurant in town. And you know what Italian food is…..pasta, pasta, pasta and some more pasta. Oh yeah, there was some shrimp with that pasta, too. And then the dancing! A wonderful rock and roll band and dancing, dancing, dancing! And probably a bit more alcohol than I usually drink.
So, anyway, I woke up this morning with what I call “pizza eyes”. I get those puffy red eyes after pasta and shrimp and more alcohol than I should. Had a four-hour rehearsal to grind through this afternoon. I was in no mood for it. But we have a barbershop show coming up in three weeks. Lots of extra rehearsals in my future.
Now, it is time to take stock. It is time to quit misbehaving. On February 17 we are leaving for a vacation. I want to get control of my diet and exercise for the next three weeks. Tomorrow is Monday…….another chance to get it right!
