Dinner: Wasn't very exciting tonight. Tired after a long week I made scrambled eggs with Jimmy Dean Turkey sausage.
Growing up we didn't really have much tradition. We ate at the table and usually talked politics but as I got older- I refused to eat with my parents (I know, I seem so sweet!) so...I took to eating alone in my room. In retrospect- probably the beginning of a bad habit of eating alone. And associating meals with negative feelings.
When I was married we ate together- and then with the kids- until they were teens and then getting everyone to the table at the same time seemed impossible. We still enjoy when we can all eat together, though.
I think being mindful of what I'm eating is something I need to keep working on- I can be very ignorant of what's going in my face when I'm eating while doing other things, like being on the computer!
