Make-up Blooper

My friend Jen had a make-up makeover yesterday.  I obviously am in need of one.

Last night after Life Group, I needed to run into Michael's very quickly to pick up just one item.  Since I've had a virus/cold, my lips have been quite dry and I am addicted to lip balm anyway.  I rummaged around in my bag (packed with Bible, notebook, planner, billions of used kleenex, throat drops, throat drop wrappers, etc. etc. etc.) and voila, found the lip balm.  I quickly smeared it on, ran inside, picked up my kneadable eraser, payed for it and got back in the car.  Because I am addicted to lip balm, I thought I'd smear on a bit more for the short trek home.  This time, I actually looked at the tube before I placed it to my lips.  It was concealer.  I had totally erased my lips.  And been seen in public with no lips.

Where'd she go?

Well, that was a nice break, wasn't it?  What on earth happened to me, you ask?    First, of all, I gradually quit eating quite so healthily.  And, being the all or nothing gal that I am, I really has a hard time with that.  Of course, life got busy, etc., blah, blah, blah and next thing you know, it's been a decade later (or at least it felt like that long...)

I realized that I need to give myself permission to expand the ol' blog in scope so that I don't feel like I have nothing to write about if I am not totally pristine in my eating.

I also realized that I am not totally cracked over the name of the ol' blog.  If you would like to help me tweak that, feel free!

So, in between coughing fits, here I am.  (The flu bug has been in our house for over 2 weeks now)  Yesterday, I found myself craving vegetables so I whipped up a two egg omelet with about 1/4 cup monterey jack cheese, and a lightly sauteed 3/4 cup mixture of yellow bell pepper, sweet onion, broccoli, fresh basil and tomato.  It was so good - being sick has brought a lovely weight loss of several pounds - since I haven't eat very much lately, my body was craving the good stuff!

What movie was it where one of the main characters crowed she was "just a stomach flu away" from her goal weight?
