I think I can officially consider myself a sugar addict. It used to be that I could have a little piece of chocolate, be done with it, move on and be happy. I still could do that. I do move on. I move on from the chocolate, to the bread slathered with caramelized condensed milk. I move on to the chocolate brownie cookies. And if it isn’t sweet, I move on to the pasta.
Having said that, I have one word for what I feel now. Ugh.
It’s time to clean up, detox, and get my act together, and that time is now!
So, now what? What can I do to control my urges? What to do from this point on? This post is probably a good start, but where to go from here? Should I go organic? Grain free? Paleo?
I lay here at midnight, as my husband and daughter sleep, coming to the realization that I really have got to take care of myself better. I lay here with a touch of excitement about this new “project”, with hopes that the newness of it all does not fade away. I lay here in prayer, asking God to lead me where to go from here, because truth be told, I have no idea.
Well, a couple of days have gone by and no call from my hopefully future employer. I plug away.
Meantime, I’ve recently heard news of a friend’s daughter who was born with a certain heart condition, that a new abnormality was found in her heart on her last check up, and that she may need a heart cath and another surgery in the near future. My heart goes out to her as Grace also has a congenital heart condition. A day never passes without the worry of something bad happening to her heart.
Grace has been doing amazingly well despite her health issues, but everyday I pray that God protect her, and every night I thank God for keeping Grace healthy and happy. I look at her in amazement everyday. So strong, a fighter. Truly an inspiration, even at the tender age of four.
God grant us the strength and the wisdom to help Grace live a long, fruitful, happy life. And thank you, God, for trusting us enough to give us the honor of taking care of Grace. Of all the jobs I have ever had, being mommy to Grace has been the best job by far! I am so blessed!
I am here on WordPress because, truth be told, I have applied for a work-from-home job that required knowledge of WordPress. There. Cat’s out of the bag. If my hopefully future employer is reading this, I hope you take it in such a way that I am a self-motivated learner.
I am writing this particular post using the WordPress app. Also, it is the middle of the night and I can’t sleep, and when I can’t sleep, I do what I’ve been adviced to be a no-no for insomniacs…turn to electronic devices. Sorry, but if I don’t tend to my to-do list or just do a brain dump, like I am now, I really won’t sleep. So in actuality, this particular electronic device, my smartphone, actually does help me find my way to sleepy land.
Well, hopefully future employer, as predicted, I am now sleepy. Looking forward to an interview with you soon!
