For some reason, I had my bitch on today. If you know me, you know it’s not like me. Although I don’t often complain or post about negative feelings, I’m saying it like it is today.
Look at this female cardinal, though. Doesn’t she look mad? She looks like somebody’s taking too long at the feeder and she wants to get in there. Like NOW!
And speaking of food and feeders . . .
After yesterday’s indulgence of macaroni & cheese, and then some pound cake for dessert, I wanted to start the week off right when I arrived at school this morning. And what happened was that a giant cake was brought in for one of the teacher’s birthdays. It was huge and was made by a woman who excels in cake making and decorating and it was simply beautiful, a half chocolate/half vanilla sheet cake that was twice as thick as a normal sheet cake, with layers in the center that had icing.
It pissed me off immediately.
And I did my best to ignore it.
I work in the main office of a school and it is the drop-off place for All Things Decadent, making it very difficult to constantly maintain my willpower. I can’t stand it sometimes and today was just one of those days. Oh, I had some cake. After listening to other teachers rave about it, I had some of the damn cake. And spent the rest of the day cleaning up around it because what a mess a large cake makes. And really, I can’t stand the mess.
Then I came home and listened as my husband gave me a heart-to-heart talk about my weight after I told him about the cake. He wasn’t being mean, but it hurt. When I got sick back in October, I lost 20 pounds. I looked good and I felt good. But I’ve gained half of it back. And Lord knows, the weight thing is a universal sore subject so I’ll quit now.
But I still feel like I’ve got my bitch on. And for that, I’m sorry.
But only a little.
To change the subject, I picked up the cool effect for this photo from Shadowhouse Creations. Tomorrow will be a better day. I just know it.
