Mope

I've been very mopey these last few days. It's a combination of the usual hormonal insanity plus change, and I'm just not a big fan of change no matter how often it comes. Even if changes bring good things, I just tend to resist it and make myself miserable, wishing for things to stay the way they were, no matter how improbable it may be. I'm trying very hard to kick that habit, but I can't say it will be easy. I just ask that my friends understand where my insanity comes from and roll with it for a little while. You know me, I always even out in the end. :-)

In my neverending quest to get back to wedding day weight, I made carrot cake bars using a Cooking Light recipe I've been meaning to try out for about two years now. While I am suspicious of any carrot cake recipe that doesn't involve cream cheese frosting, I will roll with this and try it at lunch. If it's good, I'll post the recipe on Domestic Goddesses - that's the Martha blog after all!

I think this blog needs a picture of Duran Duran on it to cheer me up today.


Why stop at just one? Here's a yesterday/today kind of thing. Ahhh... so much better now.

Yeah, cream cheese frosting seems like a mandatory for carrot cake...

They bars are tasty, but yeah... perhaps I will put a dollop of frosting on them.

That sounds more like it... :)

how about a game of 'what are the guys doing in the photo?'

Like in the top photo, does John happily have his hand shoved down Simon's backside?

I'm feeling mopey too, and yes dessert usually fixes it.

Roe said...

hahahahahah... Linda, you just gave me a much-needed giggle. It really does look like that. Perhaps John and Yasmin have an 'arrangement'? ;-)

Linda Sheridan said...

That was the idea!

Yasmin is back at work for Ann Taylor.

Cool, maybe she can hook me up with some clothes. I went into one store over the weekend and almost had a heart attack when I looked at the prices.
