April is exhorting CRONies to write to their blogs more. I notice I don't write as much about CRON as I used to. I don't want to complain about my eating habits. It seems that five days a week I'm like a CRONie angel, eating everything right. My body appreciates it and stays slim. Then sometimes during the weekend, I relax my rules and eat some, well in CROnie speak, gak, if cookies be gak. Yes, I know they are. 100 lashes with a wet noodle. Come to to think of it, today our receptionist brought an apple pie made from scratch. Ahem. It was to celebrate Halloween. This does not happen often in our office and she is a new receptionist. I hope she doesn't find lots of reasons to celebrate by bringing pies, because it really is a temptation. Yes, I did have a piece. I still was in perfect behavior the rest of the day. My body feels better when I don't eat cookies or brownies. But there may be a gene somewhere in the brain that likes that stuff. Or maybe that is called conditioning to like sweets.
By the way, I'm looking over the pictures I posted of the Red Sox, particulary the one of catcher Vaitek practicing. By coincidence, I received an email today from a friend in San Antonio, with quotes from an interview by Oprah with Maya Angelou on the ocassion of her 70+ birthday. One of the things Maya Angelou said was, "I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."
