Twenty minutes and start! Funny how I have “so” many things to write about but when it comes to me sitting down pen on paper, or in this case keyboard on computer, my mind goes blank. Oh well, this is 20 minutes of random thoughts. Cool.
The boys just came home from school. Being the teens they are, there is a tie for the first pit stop: the pantry and the refrigerator. I am weight challenged and that means I am watching what I eat. Sometimes I feel like I watch everything I put in my mouth. Ha! When the kids are home temptation is great because of all the snacks that find their way out of their hiding places.
Well, right now as I write there is a bag of Lays potato chips staring me in the face. The cereal boxes come out. Bowls come out. The cereal gets poured and milk follows. I have two teenage boys sitting in the dinner table discussing how school went and what homework is due in between “snap, crackle, & pop”! Then the question of the day, “What’s for dinner?”.
“Salad and pasta,” I answer my hand reaching for the bag of chips. Their stomachs satisfied. They disappear into the computer room to begin their school assignments….well…maybe with a detour of FIFA on the Playstation. But…it’s Monday night football, so I think they’ll get a jump on their homework!
I have to separate myself from the bag of chips! It is now back in the pantry.
Time’s up! Til the next assignment.
