Cake

I apologize.  My mind hasn't been on blogging lately.  

You see, there's a thing coming up.  A dress-up thing.  A "buy a new dress" dress-up thing.  The last time I bought a new dress-up dress was for my sister-in-law's wedding over 2 years ago.  I got it at Ross.  For $10.  It was cheap, but it looked good.  And, it was a tad on the short side, so I hand quilted a friend's quilt in exchange for free alterations.  Anyway, I'm excited for this new opportunity to look good in a new dress.  

But, I've got a problem.  I already want to lose a few "vanity pounds."  And...



...there's this home-made chocolate cake smothered in delicious creamy chocolate frosting (lovingly made the way only Grandpa can make it) in my refrigerator...

...saying, "[Token Asian Friend]!  I know you are technically Asian and shouldn't enjoy such rich gooey chocolaty goodness, but you have the stomach of an ox.  You should eat mutiple pieces today."

So, I did.

This is my dilemma.  And I came up with a compromise...

Blog less, exercise more, eat whatever I want.

Don't worry, I'm not going to go all *Mary* on you (*Mary*, come back!), but I just need to find a way to have my:


And:



too!


So, if it is OK with you, I will blog only once every 3-4 days, instead of once every two.  At least until the chocolate cake (and all other chocolate candy in my house) mysteriously disappears.  Or, until I look dang good in a new dress.  Or both.

You should just figure out a way to blog while you exercise. Like, get one of those kids to type as you dictate from the treadmill or something.

Just go run 5 miles everyday - like old times!!! That should assist in the process!

Better 5 mile than those ridiculous 11 mile days. I really strongly disliked those days!
