Family Day....

It's Monday! My weekend was fun. On Friday we hung out with friends at coffee shop. There wasn't time to see The Vow like we planned. I'm more of a coffee shop girl than a movie one so I was just as happy to chat at Tim Hortons. Dinner-time was very late which made me nervous. I don't deal well with being too hungry. I was relieved once I ate a sub and drank a big tea. The conversation was funny and I left smiling.

I spent Saturday with the Observer and his friends. We went to Boston Pizza. There were four of us. One girl was new to me and was very shy. At first, there were awkward silences but gradually everyone relaxed. The Observer's friend Liz, bought us polar ice shots. I am not a drinker because of the calories. I would rather eat cake than drink alcohol. As Liz was about to order the shots, I said, "How many cal.....?" I looked at the Observer and shut my mouth. Sometimes I need to act normally even though my head is spinning with numbers. I tried a sip of the shot and it tasted like chocolate mint. The other girls ate and drank quite a bit. I ate over half of a low-fat spicy chicken personal pizza. It was okay. I wish I could just EAT without worrying. I'm so much better now but that stupid little voice is still lurking....Will it ever be quiet?

Yesterday was my sister's birthday. Mom made prime rib, broccoli and cauliflower casserole, red potatoes, salad, and white chocolate cherry cheesecake. I overate ALL day starting with breakfast. Mom had made Rice Krispy Squares and things kind of went downhill from there.....I tried to focus on my niece and nephew who are talking and walking. I LOVE them more than anything. My brother hugged and kissed the Observer. It was hilarious!         

Well, today is Canada's fifth annual Family Day, a holiday meant to share with those we love. I'm a fan myself. I suppose that I'm a family orientated kind of girl. The plan was to hang out with the Observer, but he had nerve wracking wheelchair problems. I've been there, so I feel his frustration. Hanging out with me here would have been fun. I miss the Observer.

I spent the day chilling inside. It's sunny but cold. Tonight I watched a documentary on Netflix called  Life In A Day that filmed one day around the world. It reminded me of the documentarey Babies but was more interesting....I have tried to enjoy the holiday for what it is. Yesterday's eating shouldn't matter today. Not long ago,  I heard a song by Wiz Khalifa called Young, Wild and Free. I need to remeber these lyrics:

So what we get drunk
So what we don't sleep (smoke weed)
We're just having fun
We don't care who sees
So what we go out  
That's how its supposed to be
Living young and wild and free

Well, I STILL won't get drunk (or smoke weed) and I sleep OK.  Maybe I could use some practice having fun and being young and wild and free. After  all, I am twenty nine years old.
