My whole day kinda felt weird. First off, getting the braces off was way easier and less painful than I had thought. In fact, the actual taking them off part was so quick I had no clue that he was done until he showed me the braces. Then, when I got home I was thinking I needed to do something special. That’s when it hit me I should eat sugar. My mom had been saying she didn’t want me to go two years without sugar, because I can get a little extreme and balance is something I’m working on. So I was like “Today I should eat sugar!” After I decided to do it, I ran around the house like crazy, pulling out all sorts of sweets I’d been wanting to have, including a few I’d saved since Christmas. Then I Facetimed my amazing cousin and dove into the sugary world with a delicious cookie. That was followed by a small piece of pie, some little cookies, white hot chocolate and lots and lots of candy. My brother even let me eat whatever I wanted from a box of candy one of his friends had sent him. It was amazing. I ended the day with some scrumptious noodles. Yes, noodles are a huge treat!
I told myself at the beginning of the year that I was allowed to have a moderate amount of sugar one day a week and save up the days if I didn’t use them. I’m not planning on having sugar every week, but I’ll allow myself the treat if I want to. I must say, celebrating with sugar was a very fun thing to do. 🙂
We are leaving for Florida in just a little bit, and I don’t have time to get the When Life Hands You Lymes story up before then, so I’ll do that once we’re on the road.
