It might be time to start the "New Years" Diet when....

We went to the Miracle of Christmas play today in Branson. During intermission I was talking to John and stretching. I had my hands up and was stretching them in the air. I had on a sweater that had an empire waist. This elderly man walks by- pats my stomach and says "Looks like a little Emanuel is on the way huh?" I was so shocked I just stared and smiled.

Diet Indicator number 1- when senors think you are pregnant.

I am 42 - I am NOT WITH CHILD.

What a great laugh for the whole family. For me- I am going to wrap my body in Saran Wrap before leaving out tomorrow. Excuse me as I exhale. I have inhaled while typing in case you could see me through your computer screen.

Happy Wednesday!

That happened to me on outreach one time!! A Spanish lady patted my belly - I didn't understand the language but I caught the full meaning!!

You WILL NOT be alone on the New Years Diet!!! Good luck...perhaps we can encourage each other as we slim down!!!

A little Emmanuel???!!! Oh, the tact. At least he thought you'd be producing a Godly offspring. heehee. Those Empire waists...they can be tricky.

Oh wow. I am just sorry that this had to happen. We went to Pigeon Forge this past week and after seeing my picture at the Black Bear Jamboree with the rest of my family, I cried! I looked SO fat! I think I had about four chins and just looked terrible! So, I'm with you on the New Year diet plan! So sorry you had this happen though. We can laugh, but somewhere inside, there's a huge "OUCH!" Happy New Year! ;-)
