A couple weeks ago, I got some apples on the way home and started eating them as a midnight snack (which is a just-after-I-get-home snack). This week, I decided to try eliminating refined sugars from my diet, which means no PB&H sandwiches, no Oreo cream or French silk pies, no ice cream, etc. Fruits are okay (I'm sticking to apples and bananas mostly). I picked up some no-sugar added yogurt. Spot loves it; it's hard to eat it when she's trying to get at the spoon or the container. Maybe it's a midlife-type-crisis thingy, but I'm sick of eating so much junk. Actually, I think I was sick from eating so much junk. This week, I've felt a lot better. My mood's vastly improved. I went to hand out a birth certificate worksheet to a new mother today and wasn't twitchy or dry-mouthed even though there were three strangers in the room (strangers to me, not the mother). The more complex sugars I'm getting from the fruits, along with the fiber, are making my tummy happier. I don't really miss the sugar. (Although I might pick up some roasted peanuts so Ares and I can bond eating them together; what can I say? My cats are weird.) I even laugh easier.
Things are looking up. Maybe it's not mid-life stuff, but I'm finally growing up a bit. Probably about time, too. XD
Now, about the car... Tinkerbelle's been squealing and grinding and making various other sounds a healthy car shouldn't make. I'm going to get oil changed early tomorrow and have them check the noises again. The headlights don't work right. Again. The wiring in this little car is crap. >.< I was really thinking about going up to the MSP area to fireboydan's party, but even if they fix everything, and the car is totally road-trip-worthy, I don't know if I'm up to a 12-13 hour round trip. :( I really want to go (there's going to be a jam session BYOI; also, I could donate my very old computer bits to davedujour), but since the weather's supposed to be perfect tomorrow (finally), I should really help clear up all the winter debris (including the downed branches from that ice storm). We'll see, but I think I'll be changing my RSVP to a negative. (Sorry, Dan.) ;_;
So, what's up with you?
