No Binge Baseball

I filled 15 30-gallon bags of dead wet leaves today. I want a damn medal, because I'm sorry but the energy and physical ability it took to do that is heroic in my book.

OK so I'm getting better about the restaurant + food thing, but I'm still struggling with the baseball game + food thing.

What's so tough about it is that I'm not doing anything else while watching the game. And the games last for hours. I know, you're thinking what a waste of time. Hey, it is my enjoyment, I don't care if you don't like baseball. You like something I don't, I'm sure. Like...planting pansies!

So back to my problem...logically, the thing to do is to have a planned meal during the game, and then maybe multitask, which is lousy because then I feel like I'm not watching the game. And before anyone suggests that I exercise while watching the game, right now I'm limited to watching games on the non-wireless laptop (yes, that's a fan for you...no TV option here!) so that setup leaves maybe some room for stretching, but nothing cardio here at the desk (except maybe when I see Tek on the screen).

Maybe I should taking up knitting....Origami...?

Hmmm....maybe I should brush the dogs while watching the game.

Yes.

(The dogs say no.)

I might win this one.

I was going to say knitting -then you wrote it - lol

Brushing my dog lasts all of about 10 secs before him trying to kill the brush drives me nuts and I give up.

Good luck - its a tough predicament. I am not looking forward to dealing with the same thing here when football season starts up again.

Arrgh, I know the predicament. I lost a fight with a half gallon of ice cream the other night. Sigh. LOL

I'm SO intrigued by this new man in your life!! Can't wait to hear more. Although I know what you mean about now wanting to talk much because u might jinx. I am the same way. He sounds very nice though :)

I don't watch baseball, but I do watch a lot of golf. But for some reason, it doesn't make me want to eat. Is the baseball/food association kind of like what happens during the Superbowl?

We eat a lot of popcorn as a snack. I recently started buying the microwave snack bags which are only a 100 calories and I add a little bit of powdered cheddar cheese the minute it comes out of the microwave. It's pretty good.

Keeping your hands busy is important. Knitting or crocheting are good. I tend to text a lot, so that helps.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
