I think I may have figured out why grandmothers often end up being a little.....less than thin. It is because they are grandmothers. At least in my case that is where I am placing the blame.
No, it is not because I am such a wonderful grandmother that I cook wonderful comfort food meals for them or lovingly bake cookies with them . It is because I am a sucker for every school, Girl Scouts or sports team fundraiser that comes along, all of which involve food.
Right now I have bags of frozen cookie dough in my freezer from a school fundraiser back in the fall. In the last couple of months there have been several fundraisers at restaurants that seem to specialize in burgers, fries and shakes. I am currently awaiting the delivery of I don't know how many boxes of Girl Scout cookies. Tomorrow night it will be a fund raising dinner at Chick-Fil-A where I especially like the fries and sweet tea.
I expect spring will bring the selling of chocolate bars for some team or another. (I prefer the ones with almonds.)
So, if I get really fat it is just because a grandmom has to do what a grandmom has to do.
