It has only been one week since my last post. One week has been too long. Too much has happened to sum up and yet here I go giving it my best shot.
First off, to answer the million dollar question: No. I do not feel miraculously, amazingly different in the nearly 3 weeks since I gave up sugar. It is not hard. I have not had headaches or withdrawals. Mostly I have noticed that there is sugar in EVERYTHING and that once this “no sugar” business comes to an end I will be implementing a “very little sugar” policy at our house. I wish I had noticed something earth shaking, but I am pretty glad I did not. What that tells me is that I was not, in fact, addicted to sugar and did not eat as much as I had thought. Except the sneaky stuff in bread and salad dressings. Why is that necessary again? I totally am on board with sugar being in cupcakes. That makes sense. But Balsamic Vinagrette dressing??!? Lame.
Next, something a little more serious. My dear friend lost her husband this past week. She has been strong! She has felt peace! She is truly amazing and I am better for knowing her and her husband. Hang in there girl.
Isabel had a rough day on Tuesday. Poor girl. She has really had a rough 5th grade experience and I think we finally have some idea what we are going to do about it. Forget school. She is going to drop out and become a tester for door hinges since she has become so proficient at slamming them. I am sure she can break a door off its hinges given then chance. We may as well see if that is a bankable talent. I love that girl. She is full of…something. And of course, this too shall pass. (right? please?)
I sang in the stake choir today. I have not sung in a choir in years and I am so happy I got the opportunity. Oh yeah. Did I mention Dallin H. Oaks was there? Yeah. Pretty cool stuff. And then I got soaked walking to my car.
