Boy did I fall off the wagon today. Lunch was a few pieces of pepperoni (not from the pizza!) and a cup of mocha silk. My husband, son and I went to see a movie with the popcorn that goes with it. My husband was wonderful, he bought me bottled water and we split a big bag of popcorn. I don't like getting sodas at movie theaters, restaurants, ball parks because the only diet sodas available are Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi or some other type of diet cola. I HATE COLA!!! I usually get club soda with a lime wedge or just plain water when we go out. Iced tea is nice too, as long as it's unsweetened. I don't like to have caffeine with dinner, it keeps me awake at night (imagine that!).
After the movie we went out to dinner. My son wanted to go home to eat, (he didn't want to see the movie either which he did enjoy) his whining was so bad that the person sitting at the table next to us moved. (She let us know about it too. She was diplomatic about it, but we got the message, "what's wrong with you people, can't you control your kid?") The reason why he didn't want to go out today was his computer games. As a result of his behavior, he lost all computer game priviledges for tomorrow. I was so stressed, that in addition to my hamburger, I ordered a mudslide and got a white russian instead. The waiter told me that the bartender said it was a mudslide. Lazy bartender didn't want use the blender.
So, the booboo is in bed now, and hopefully we will go to church in the morning. We're passive-agressive about it. Since the boo is a public school now, he is not receiving any religious instruction. Even though my husband and I are not religious, I believe it is important that my son receive some type of religious instruction in order to function in our society and I want to choose what type of instruction he receives to insulate him from extremists. I believe if he receives a sound religious education he will be less vulnerable to cult leaders and religious extremist. Besides, some type of religion will help his behavior.
