True Confession Tuesday

Ok folks this is my first time making some confessions without being in a tiny room with a priest on the other side of the curtain! It's Tuesday at The Sisterhood and that means True Confession time. It's my first time participating in this weekly thread.

True Confessions

Where do I begin with my confession? Oh here's an idea, how about with the transgressions from this very evening?! Hubby and I went out after work to celebrate. I learned yesterday that some of three of my newspaper columns won a national award in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists annual contest. Granted, they won an honorable mention - not first or second or third place, but no matter to me! It was a national contest and I have been beaming with pride.

Now, back to tonight. I must get out of the thought pattern of celebration = anything I darn want off the menu and a few cocktails to wash it all down of course. I ordered a friggin bloomin' onion thing - you know the kind you get from the Outback? The kind I probably have not had in 10 years at the Outback?
This wasn't the Outback but they had that kind of appetizer on the menu AND it was on the $5 Happy Hour special menu.
I ate it
I regret it
I felt sluggish and puffy after.
I will go to bed saying my prayer that I do not do that again any time soon.
Confession over!
