Today's report is going to be very short yet sweet because:
- My laptop got infected with all kinds of nasty viruses and I had to take it to the computer hospital. It was so bad they had to do a complete re-install which means wiping out everything. While in there, the IT guy is telling me I should upgrade to Windows 7 since Vista just sucks. Makes sense so, I say yes. I got the laptop back last night, but now, it's like moving into a new house whose floor plan you've never even seen. I have to re-do and re-learn a whole lot.
- My folks have been here this week visiting me, and they want to go do some sightseeing today, so mom is like, "Chop. Chop. Let's go!"
I will share this one cool new thing, my parents and I did this week in an effort to cut down on sugar. My birthday was on Monday, and normally mom would buy some large cake at Safeway. This year, we got a small 3" Coconut cake at Whole Foods, cut it into 4 small pieces, and coupled our cake slice with my favorite So Delicious Coconut-milk based chocolate ice cream.
We got to enjoy a small amount of cake and ice cream without busting our sugar and calorie consumption. I also introduced my folks to the coconut-milk based ice cream I love so much and they liked it too. Bonus!
So see, you can have your cake and eat it too....and feel good about it :)
