Darn it. Made a poor Fritos choice--on impulse. I feel sick today with a cold and had to scoop Punch early from school for a hard-to-get dr appt. Add to that, a worker from Child Protective Services had to meet up with us there and have me fill out some paperwork at the dr's office. Ugh.
Then: Punchy proceeded to act up after brief chat with doctor. While we waited for nurse to roll in her cart and check vital signs, Punch donned disposable gloves and took a couple of alcohol pads to wipe my arm for imaginary shot. Then tried to grab many more pads and I told her no and she grappled with me.
We were ready to leave when I remembered we didn't get the letter the dr. dictated. While waiting for that, Punch bit herself and tried to bite me--she and her friends are into vampire stories and books. When I refused to let her bite my shins, she rolled around on the waiting room floor. I was embarrassed and angry, even ashamed, but thankfully, at that point, the waiting room was empty.
Driving back, I saw a food mart by a gas station. I had a salty junk food urge. I got the first bag of Fritos I saw and unfortunately, it contained four 160-calorie servings and I ate all of them. Standing up in the store. A well-dressed woman about my age in a nice black cloaky coat was looking at me. Must have thought I was unhealthy, unstable or both, I suddenly felt way overweight. Like a loser. Note to self: Eating crap quickly leads to crappy self-image.
Now: We're at the Montclair Public Library to renew books and so Punch can do her math homework.
The sooner I can make and serve our healthy dinner, the better.
