She called me around 11PM and asked me if I wanted to meet them at the pub. So I drove myself to town and met them. Three of the members of this band are also members of the band “Pumpkin Head Ted”. Pumpkin Head Ted was the band we hired for Sarah’s wedding. Not your typical wedding band but everyone at the wedding commented about how much fun they were and everyone danced all night.
Last night I only had one drink but I did make Sarah dance with me once. I wish I had brought my camera. I could only really stand there banging my cane on the floor but it was fun. Obie went home early because he had to work this morning but Sarah and I closed the place down. It was so sweet because one of the band members came over to me to make sure I was having a good time. Sarah’s friend Dan was there and he got up and played drums with them for the last set. Then the lead singer Tom came down and gave me a hug. I felt like the belle of the ball.
Now I have to confess that I gained 1.4 pounds this week. I did some emotional eating which has always been a problem for me but I got through it. It only lasted a couple of days. Who knew you could put on a pound so fast. Thank goodness there is always next week to do better. I was going to try and weasel out of the meeting because I knew I had gained but I went and faced my demons.
Today I get to face “The Incredible Hulk”
We are going at supper time so hopefully it won’t be crowded. Then we will come home and grill teriyaki turkey burgers at least for Sarah and me. Obie’s having a steak. We are going to grill vegetables too. All weight watcher’s approved. I am even sneaking my own popcorn into the theater. I have to get back on track.
