I've had a productive morning.

I went to Albertsons early to get leeks, packaging tape, and laundry detergent. Came home, completely changed out the cats' litter box, used the tape to seal four packages I needed to mail (*waves at KaChing*), chatted with Teem a little bit before she left for the airport/Germany (*SOB*), went back out to the Post Office - which had a line out the door - and mailed the packages, came home and chopped up the leeks and the potatoes and the carrots and the Canadian bacon and put everything together in the crock pot to make the Potato and Canadian Bacon Chowder that we will be having for dinner.

Yes, we. As in me and you. Come over at 7, and bring whatever you want to drink.

While I was cooking I fed the birds. When I was finished cooking, I fed myself (bologna and jarlesberg cheese sammich).

This afternoon I plan on cleaning out my closet. A lot of stuff no longer fits, especially my winter jackets. I realized this last night as I was hanging up me new pants, and it sort of bummed me out. I know I should be happy, but when I look at all of the clothes in my closet I just see a lot of money for things I can't wear any more. And I don't want to buy more clothes when I'm not at my target weight yet. But I hate not having much to wear that looks good on me, and all of my favorite pieces - my Mossimo pinstriped and coffee brown pants, my chocolate brown corduroy jacket - are no longer usable, dammit.

Stop rolling your eyes at me!

Dude, find a seamstress and get as much as you can taken in. It costs much less and you don't have to say goodbye.

I just baked a batch of biscuits for dinner!

By the way, thanks! I've got that song rolling through my head now. Which isn't a bad thing, but the CD is in the car, and the car isn't at home :(

Mmm, biscuits.

I only wish it were as simple as finding a seamstress. The problem is, I'd need every pair of pants taken in all over - waistband, hems, through the butt and thighs. I can't imagine it would be cheaper than buying a new pair that fits correctly.

I just cleaned out my closet. Two big garbage bags worth of stuff, including all of my winter coats and 10 pairs of pants. Guh.

Wow, those biscuits went FAST. They're the chive/buttermilk biscuit from the last Cooking Light, in case you're interested. I made them without the chives, and substituted one cup of regular flour for whole wheat. Yum.

Now I'm waiting for my dough to rise, as I am trying to make monkey bread.
