Time to Rant a Bit

I think it's pretty darn infuritating that when the gas prices went up as fast as they did last summer, restaurants and grocery stores, among others wasted no time in raising their prices. But now that gas prices are down to what they were over a year ago the restaurants and grocery stores haven't done anything to adjust their prices accordingly. That is my rant for the day!! I am suffering from band tightening right now. I fixed dinner and wasn't able to eat it. It won't go down!! Certain things affect the tightness of the band, one thing is the barometric pressure and I don't know what ours is here but the weather was foggy and dreary all day. Maybe that is what does it, I am not sure. I was also a bit miffed at DH. He was being grouchy and yelling at the dog and the cat and then he didn't care for what I had made for dinner. Baked chicken and rice. He isn't much of a rice eater. But I love it. Anyway, all that combined made me as tight as a camels arse in a dust storm. So here I sit, reading blogs. Tomorrow I have to go out and brave the crowds at the grocery store and buy what I need for Thanksgiving dinner. We are having dinner with friends at their home. I am making pumpkin pie to take and a vegetable dish. Haven't quite decided what veggie to make yet.

Ihope you get to where you can eat something. I would be ill too.
Being hungry makes me weak and irritable.
It is rainy and damp here...
turning colder.
Hope tomorrow will be a better day.

You go right ahead and rant girly! You have every reason to!
As for eating on Thanksgiving...maybe it's overrated.....8-)
I'm still not able to eat anything beyond the texture of yogurt. I am considering "testing" my band tomorrow but I'm not sure if I want to chance it....
We have snow coming our way....just in time for me to finish up my shopping! So, I will be "out there" with you Kathy! We'll be brave together!
Thanks for always keeping up with my blog and for your sweet and encouraging comments!
They mean so much!
