Well, nothing has changed in the last few days. Still not drinking soda (today is day 14), still no weight loss. I wasn’t expecting it to all drop off based on one life decision, but I was hopeful. I’ve decided that November 1st, is the day that I give up sweets . No cookies, cake, ice cream, chocolate, candy. And I say Nov 1st, because I think it’s unfair to myself, to deprive myself of Halloween, and stealing candy from Calista’s basket.
Other than that, my life needs a boost. Or a kick in the ass. I’m feeling so…blah. About everything. Work (this is nothing new), my relationship, motherhood. I was asked to attend a grief workshop for the holidays. I’m unsure if I’m going to attend or not. My mothers favorite time of year was the holidays. Every year she would wake up at the crack of dawn on Thanksgiving, starting to cook the feast of a lifetime, the best mashed potatoes, not unlike Paula Dean, a stick of butter with a side of butter. My favorite was the giblet gravy, though to be honest, I don’t really know what a giblet is (don’t tell me). My mother would start shopping for Christmas in July, which is also when the countdown would begin. She loved decorating the house, it was like Christmas threw up in the living room.
I’m trying to figure out how to spend the holidays. Tis the season for new traditions! Our family is not exactly “normal”. I can’t cook an entire feast, even if I could, I definitely don’t know how to cook a feast for 3. So if any of you have any ideas, on what sort of traditions we can make, the help would be greatly appreciated.
Until next time,
