Day 26 OF 31 #SOL16
I wrote about small victories yesterday. We went out for a late breakfast to celebrate. Nothing like a good old diner to bring you back to reality! People of all walks of life seem to enjoy the diner scene. We don't go often but when we do there is always bound to be a story or two just waiting. I watched as waitresses bumped into each other hustling around the counter. They worked their hardest to force a smile while it appeared chaos was all around them. Plates clinking, silverware falling, "behind you," and "hot coffee" rang through the crowded conversations. My kids proceeded to play rock, paper, scissors, some other finger counting game that doesn't have a name, and "karate chop the straw wrapper" while we waited for our food.
As I looked down at my practically plate size omelet and side of hash browns I asked myself, "What was I thinking?" It's the kind of meal that tastes so good you just can't stop eating even though everything inside you is telling you to quit whilte you're ahead. I think I ate about half of it and then watched my kids eat their pancakes and pick from my plate, "Are you going to eat those hashbrowns?" and "Can I have your biscuit?" I gladly gave it up as I sat ridiculously full.
We had planned on running a few errands after breakfast but when I looked over at my husband I could tell we were all heading home. I'm thinking a nap may be in my future.
