Yes I'm Eating Too Much



So this is how the conversation went as we were snuggling in bed last night:

Stacey said, "I just don't feel good. I think I have eaten too much."

Paul said in his sweetest we've been married almost 21 years voice, "Well you eat like a farm hand. Pumpkin pie, pecan pie, sweet potato pie, and that cinnamon thing Cindy made."

Don't you just love it when someone is keeping track of your intake?!!!

Speaking of the cinnamon thing, my friend Cindy made a cheesecake that was to die for. I will try to get that today.

Now it's 8:05 am and I already need a Tums...it's so pathetic.

Oh yes, I am full. I am debating on throwing leftovers out. Everyone has left except for my son and I. Do I really need an almost whole pecan pie for myself. Maybe not.....

Bo said...

Haha Stacey...if you ate like a farmhand, then I think I ate like a farmhand's mule! BTW, my computer is sooo sick...I've got to try to find somebody to fix it...so if I'm missing in action, you'll know why...I'm using my DH's acc't. to post this...Oh the misery! ;-) Bo

Oh Im right there with you sister! My stomach is just not what it should be. It's sad that I just cant step away from all of that sweet stuff. Just one more...it adds up.
About that paint,ughhh.... I did use the same exact color as Miss Pat. It's Interesting Aqua by Sherwin Williams. I think it was just too dark for my room and it didnt play nicley with my countertops. I still love the color dearly but now I just have to admire hers I guess. I finished up painting last night. Now I need new curtains, hehe~

Paul could be my husband's long lost brother!!! Now you know that shopping is the best way to walk off those pounds, right??? Unfortunately, it takes some weight out of the wallet too! :O)

Sounds reasonable at this time of the year. Here's the deal - just bring the family over to my place for a great Aussie BBQ tomorrow - or today!

Carol said...

Oh Stacey, I know what you're talking about! I indulged way too much last week. Time to put the brakes on! Aren't husbands so special to help us out with our food consumption list?!! Ha, ha!
Hugs,

I love that you can write about that conversation on your blog and laugh at it. :) If you're not going to eat poorly during the holidays, when else can you? Be a farm hand!

I love that story! hahaha Sounds familiar, we have been married almost 20 years and we have had some of those types of conversations. My favorite one is when my hubby talks about how he needs to lose weight. I then say "you don't need to lose weight" and he says "well, we're both getting older, and our bodies just aren't the same as they were when we were thirty". Notice he says "we" and "our"...I just say "thanks honey!" Good thing we are still so crazy about each other!!!

Ha...that is so funny! Turn about is fair play...you can keep count of what he eats next time! :-)

Why is it men always seem to know what to say when you're dating? But when you're married, they come up with remarks like that!

Oh can I relate to the eating too much. My poor stomach isn't over it yet ! And now all the Christmas parties are starting. Sheesh....what's a girl to do ! LOL .

Hey girl...Lordy my bunch ate like the farm was about to shut down! lol lol They carried off everything! lol lol You should have seen the platters of food that left this house! lol But that's why I always cook so much....I want them to have plenty for a few days! Oh and that 20 lb turkey that I had my grocery cook for me..it was fantastic...so tender & moist..it was a huge hit! Thanks for coming by and checking on me...hope you have a great week sweetie!

LOL! I think that conversation took place all over America this past weekend! I know I gained 2 pounds...why did I get on that scale????

Stacey said...

So many funny comments from you all on this one!! I love it. If you are worried about my husband and I - don't be. We are goofy farm hands together.

Angie said...

I can so relate! It seems I've gone crazy the past week just eating and eating and not exercising. I keep saying I'll get back on track tomorrow, but then I'm bad again. I did go walking today though.

FrenchGardenHouse said...

Stacey, that thing Cindy made sounds divine. :) what the heck, it's only Thanksgiving once a year, and farm hands are healthy!:)

Love the little plates . I have some just like them.

Deb said...

Stacey,

That is so funny, Paul sounds like my husband, keeping track of what I eat, of course he eats double what I do, but do I say anything? Of course not.
