This month has been the month of meeting people I "know" but have never met. Or people who know me, from the blog and friends, but I haven't met them ever. But it has been fun and I do plan to blog about it, when I feel up to it.

But right now I'm going to talk about my lunch disaster. I was meeting a person who is friends with my sister, who is a blog reader so knows quite a bit about me (Hi Amanda!) but I have never met her. I saw her briefly on Sunday and liked her immediately. She was visiting from Texas and not leaving until Monday late afternoon. Since I figured she'd be watching Pokemon all day with Logan while HB worked, I thought she might like to meet for lunch. Actually, she and my niece Rachie Roo (who has moved past juice boxes and on to beer) would be watching Pokemon together, so a little lunch time excursion might sound like fun to both of them.

I sent Amanda a list of restaurants that were nearby and let her pick, then met them there for lunch. But not before browsing the menu with my WW buddy and deciding what to pick.

Sister Sassy: What should I pick from here that would be 10 pts or less?

Co-worker chick: Dude, you're screwed. I suppose you could get the Cherry Chicken Salad without the Feta and the walnuts...but then you're not getting much for your money. And there's the whole problem of dressing.

After going back and forth I decided on a turkey sandwich, no mayo and a cup of soup. But when I get there the only soup they have is corn chowder!! Monkey Wrench!

So then the waitress cast a spell on me with a Buffalo chicken wrap special. It was a half sandwich so I got that with the side salad. But...I have a suspicion she gave me a WHOLE one. Not a 1/2! And you know what? I ate it. All. Stupid.

So this is where I find myself Monday Night. Sitting here, having used all my daily points, a couple of my weekly points and having to weigh in on Wednesday. To compensate I am eating Watermelon, grapes and carrots for dinner. Of course I do have a main course, its only 1 pt, but it should satisfy me.

What's that? You want to comment? Just click on the itty-bitty words below that say "Gimme Some Sugar". Can you see them? Good. We can't wait to chat with you.

Oh, I love those cupcakes too! They are so good! And you are too! I would have totally blown my diet. Good job for staying strong at dinner time! :0)

BTW... I think you got me started back on track - woooohooo! I've been exercising 5 - 6 days/week and started my regular program again and feel sooooooooooo much better!

Remember, it's all about the long haul - one wrap won't kill you. Thank goodness for watermelon! ;-)

Thanks for the shout out, Sister Sassy. I hope I didn't undo you too bad in the WW dept, but thanks for the Hostess tip. Those look awesome.

Oh, and for all the blog fans. Both sassy and honey bunch are just as pretty in real life, as they are here on the blog. :)
