I did it! I was officially the last one eating at dinner tonight! I kicked Marie's trash!!!!
(Yes, that was a double "woot.")
I would like to thank SLO 3rd Ward for providing food after church, so when I made it home I wasn't desperate for food.
I would like to thank my mother, who made a salad with many little nooks and crannies which enabled me to eat the salad very slowly, one nook or cranny at a time.
I would like to thank Mary for giving me a headband to look cute, I would like to thank Grandma for being her natural charming self, and I would like to thank Marie for bringing some friendly competition to the dinner table.
And finally, I would like to thank Dad, who gave me a reassuring nod and asked, "Going for the title?" which gave me the courage to really finish strong and finally accomplish my dream.
