    I think you are right.

    Hmm, I think I remember reading about that a while ago.

    Maybe. Maybe.

    Wednesday
    In the morning, I took my parents, sisters, and nieces on a tour of our new place.
    I went back with them to the booth. My visiting sister brought the "fixin's" for sushi veggie rolls.
    We made and ate them for lunch. I was there for 1 1/2 hours.
    I had NO candy and NO ice cream!!!!!!

    Daughter stayed to visit. I went home to pack. I was home for about a 1/2 hour when my sisters came over to help me
    They stayed till 5 and then came back with the girls after supper. The girls helped my Daughter pack her room. My sisters helped me. They left again at 9:30 with two huge loads for the Goodwill donation box.

    Lily still HATES the ear drops. She hides when I get the bottle out

    Foods
    Chai with whipping cream (and a little local honey)
    2 sushi rolls (each one cut into 4) nori, sticky rice, cucumber, carrot, red pepper, asparagus, avocado, and tuna
    2 glasses of wine
    fried ground beef, potatoes, one cob of corn, caprese salad, cottage cheese, grapes, Alpine Punch loose tea

    About 10 pm I thought I was hungry, I waited a bit and the feeling went away

    Thursday

    This afternoon Daughter had her 2 year ACL surgery check-up at the Fowler Kennedy Sports Clinic in London. She "passed" and does not have to go back unless it gives her problems

    Then we did a little more shopping and were home by 5. I took her out to the booth 'cause she's going to stay overnight with her visiting cousin. They were just getting ready to eat, so I joined them BUT it wasn't typical booth fair*. I was ther for almost 2 hours AND I had NO gummy worms and NO ice cream!!

    I was gonna pack tonight, but after I did the dishes**, it just didn't happen. I did some laundry instead. I'll pack tomorrow.

    Lily still does NOT like getting her ear drops Today it took two of us, a muzzle and a towel...

    Foods
    Chai with whipping cream and a little honey. x2
    2oz of Brie
    *Nachos at the booth
    Strawberries and cottage cheese

    Just for the "fun" of it I entered my #s in CRONoMeter:
    Calories: 1211
    Protein: 80g
    Carbs: 26g
    Fats: 88g

    * ground beef with seasoning, grated cheese, a few corn chips, fresh salsa, guacamole (with a few whole chickpeas)
    **Again. I'd already done dishes this morning.

    Interesting Thought:

    Remember a few weeks ago when I was eating chocolate EVERYDAY?
    (and ice cream and...)

    Well, I've had 2 8oz extra dark chocolate Brix bars sitting on my shelf since I returned from my trip east.

    Both are unopened.

    I see them occasionally when I walk by them, but they are not "calling" my Dragon.

    For now.

    AND I've had 3 booth trips with NO gummy worms and NO ice cream!!!

    I wonder how long this will last??
