How to be full
Thursday, May 16, 2019
Last night I ate just enough.
Learned my lesson, I did!
We dined for the last time with the "other" parents before they travel back to the UK today. We learned a lot about each other and I was humbled to see how happy SIL2's mom was that we "took good care" of her son. When the kids decide it's time to move to the UK, which is in the cards, I hope she's around to return the kindness. Having great kids makes it easy.
Their choice for dinner was a BBQ place in Hoboken. The walkway on the water offers fantastic views and we took advantage after dinner.

BBQ food and I don't do too well together. All I need is to smell the salt and I gain water weight. Up 3 pounds this morning from yesterday! I sucked down a bottle of water on the way home and drank a large glass before I went to bed. I also realized I'm not the carnivore I used to be. SIL2 ordered for the table, family style, and it was all wings, chili, ribs, pork and brisket. The wedge salad came slathered in creamy dressing. I sampled but didn't overdo. My treat was a well-made coleslaw.
Today is a cleansing day. A resting day. A day to contemplate the fullness in my life that has nothing to do with food!
