I -do- like having a place to check in and see how everyone is doing.
I understand about the "not getting cocky part".
Here I was spouting all the tripe about not having cravings anymore, and then
after the boys and I cleaned the house from top to bottom (oh how I love pine sol!)
for four hours, I was dead on my feet and the first thing that popped into my head?
"Damn a glass of wine sounds awesome right now, and I DESERVE IT!"
Took me three weeks to gut the damn house, go THROUGH everything, fill 20 bags of
crap to recycle and throw away, 11 bankers boxes to shred, ten bags of clothes to the
thrift store, and then organizing and putting away all the stuff I kept.
Today the boys and I are going to organize our garage-sellables, make signs and price tag
SO SEE? I DESERVED THAT WINE!
And then, as if by magic, the sensation of that last hangover came creeping in and I was
like, Oh HELLS NO. So I didn't.
Mysteriously enough, I HAVE replaced one activity with another.... Now at 5 or 5:30, instead
of sitting out front in our chairs drinking, it's seed spitting time instead! My husband bought
that BUCKET of individual packs of sunflower seeds from Costco for the baseball season (little league) a
bit too late, so here we have 100 packs of seeds.
Anyway, so I grab one, one of my seltzer waters, sit out front and get to the super lady-like
activity of spitting shells and eating seeds.
Quite the mess, but hey, I know how to use the blower AND a broom. OMG.
