    "Just ok" is a big reason for me. Sometimes I cave to my cravings or the temptation and I feel so let down by the taste of whatever it was. My mind makes it such a bigger deal.

    just "ok" is the one that works for me. Yesterday there were cake pops at the party I was at, and they were just ok, well at least the bite of the one I had. I actually didn't finish it. Then I went home and made myself a really good dessert (I had strawberries left from some sangria I had made, so I topped them with some whipped cream sprinkled with stevia, and oh boy they were so much better than "just ok" cake pops). so that is my (admittedly, unasked for and unpaid for and likely unneeded, advice) if you want a treat, make it good. Think of what you would really want and just have a little bit of that. It will taste better, and you will feel better mentally and physically.

    Another idea for the cupcakes is to divide them up into "whose" they are. ie. 3 for each of your boys, any number of indivisible slice them up. I wouldn't eat something I had decided was for one of my kids.

    Smart Advice.

    There is something deeply emotional going on today and I am very down on myself. This is partly my own fault and partly my husband's. It relates to the show yesterday, but I am just too exhausted to rehash it all right now.

    sad, can you get out of the house and do something for yourself? Stroll in a park, or around the campus when you pick up Billy? Maybe hit the Goodwill or a Thrift store and pick up a new blouse for your first day of school?

    Sometimes it is best just to avoid things.

    I am fasting today and feel clear headed and less food obsessed. I will have chicken and salad for dinner.

    Billy liked his first class. He met a hs friend for lunch.

    Mike did well through the ingrown toe nail removal and feels good today. We just received his school schedule. He is happy with it.

    Kevin and I will tour the middle school and meet his teacher tomorrow night.

    I plan to go work in my classroom Thursday or Friday.

    Paula, I award you big shiny medals and trophies for being a teacher. I think that's one of the toughest jobs in the world!

    I took two semesters of college Spanish back in the dark ages. I'd lived in Germany for 6 years before that, so I could speak survival German. Whenever my college Spanish professor called on me in class, in my panic I'd reply in German. She spoke German, too, of course, and would (in German) remind me that we were speaking Spanish.

    At the end of the second semester, the professor said, "Next semester we'll start to learn how Spanish people actually have conversations." I gave up, then. I needed two semesters of a language for my degree, but I was frustrated that I'd been learning for a year and still couldn't converse with the parents of some of my kid's schoolmates (we were stationed in Texas at the time).

    Anyhow, kudos to you!
