2:35 p.m. – Riley asleep. Jordan grading papers. Grandma staring into space. Mom tells me of Newton’s Chocolate Raspberry Fruit Thins (whole grains disguised as delicious cookie) in pantry. Officially give up on having reasonable amount of points today. Have milk and 3 cookies. Okay, 4 cookies. Total snack points: 8
2:37 p.m. – Jordan offers me his Tabasco Cheese Nips. Don’t want to waste them. Consume. To lazy to look up points on box. Or internet. Busy playing Words With Friends.
6:30 p.m. – Family cookout for my birthday! Surprise! Dad bought chocolate cake with cream cheese icing, in purple. MUST eat in my honor. Yummy. Son loves too, but must immediately have bath, for fear of purple stained skin rest of childhood years.
