Sizing It Up

Surprisingly this post has nothing to do with "up sizing" a meal. It is about something I do every time I go somewhere new and I was just reminded about it yesterday.

The first thing I do when I walk into a restaurant, go to somebodies house, or any other such place is "size up" the seating. Not because I need to sit down or even want the best seat, but because I want to know if I will fit in the seats.

Yesterday I went to lunch with my mom & my baby. When we walked in I was happy to take note of the wide armless stools at the tables. My happiness quickly changed to irritation when I realized that the only table the highchair would work at was the short one with the captain like chairs. The irritation had nothing to do with the establishment, it was with me and the size of my rear.

As I sat perched on the front edge of my chair, my purse behind me being used as a decoy as to why I couldn't scoot back in the chair, it all came together. The reason why I want to do this blog and why I want to try to take this journey. Hopefully someday in the not so distant future I can just walk-in and admire the furnishings.
