Today the lower part of my gut was unhappy. That wheat seems to have left a trail of inflammation behind it. It was not a send-me-to-bed kind of sick, but still enough that I am telling family members about it. Not that they put undue pressure on me, but it will be a handy excuse when I am offered something I shouldn't have. True excuses are the best. And also, once I have said it in public to a few people, I won't dare cheat because they will all be on my case. "But I thought you said you couldn't have that, I thought you said it was hard on your system..." You get the idea. So then I would be embarrassed and my pride would take a beating. This is how I get my vices to work on the same side as my virtues... LOL!
The grandsons were at Sunday dinner this week. I barely had enough time to eat, let alone cheat. I was very good. The youngest can now sit up on his own, and is starting to make his presence felt more. Such a smiley little boy. I was so wiped when I got home I just crashed. Walked to church this morning, which I consider only about a half dose of exercise, but I guess the boys made up for that. I might be crazy enough to pick up the resistance bands in a few, you never know.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
