Spoiler alert: This may be the most boring post EVAH. I have really got to get a more interesting life. Or at least start telling y’all some of the juicy parts.
Speaking of which – the Juice Fast is over! Whew, that was tough. I can’t believe I actually went 30 days eating only raw food and/or drinking juice. And I only cheated 5, 6 times tops! There was Easter ham, and three salads with grilled chicken, and a baked chicken, and that one time I had fried chicken. But other than that I was TOTALLY strict. I somehow managed to stay clear of all sugar, and was 99.9% bread free. I lost almost 10 pounds and went down a dress size. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I’m still worlds away from where I want to go. Such. Is. Life.
This weekend was crazy busy, also known as “the usual”, and last night I fell into sleep exhausted. The storms that everyone had promised woke me up around 5 a.m., but we were lucky and didn’t even have to hit the basement. I had my phone fully charged and my computer by my bed, but alas, no emergency maneuvers required.
The radar showed more coming, and in order to get my chicken home to roost, I picked Moon up from school at noon. It didn’t so much as rain, but it pays to be prepared, amiright Kittens? She was in such a good mood from being home that she actually cooked dinner which is why I ended up eating the above-mentioned fried chicken for dinner. I should pick her up more often!
Tomorrow I’m going to keep working and hopefully find some time to clean house. AmmoGuy is bringing Baby A over on Thursday and she likes to crawl around pretending to be a pony, getting her hooves all dirty from my floor, just to show what a bad housekeeper I am. It was so bad over the weekend I had to give her a BATH.
I’m going to try and get some rest this week because on Saturday, I’m doing the WALK. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you haven’t seen Facebook in a while. The total goal for the ministry is $100,000 dollars! The crazy thing is that when I got up this morning we’d raised 55%. Now, it’s at 77%! People are good. GOD is good.
I am good. Or bad at confrontation, however you want to look at it. I was at Sam’s last week and as I was loading the car, a woman came and asked me for bus fare. I really wanted to say no because, SCAM. But since I’d been asking people for money for weeks on Facebook, I figured I should go ahead and give her two bucks. She said she needed it to get a ride to MUST. As I was leaving, I saw her wander over and ask someone else for more. I wanted to drive up to her and offer to take her to MUST but I figured that would freak her out. Also, she might say YES. I don’t look at it as being scammed. I look at it as helping her reach 75% of her goal.
