Today Was the Day
Yesterday I had Princess with me when I stopped by the bank. I wrote a check and then waited while the teller passed me 8 ten-dollar bills. "Why do you need all those tens?" questioned Princess. I just gave her a "duh" look. "Seriously?" I asked. "What is tomorrow?"
She sat there for a minute, confusion evident on her face. "I don't know, what is it?" I counted back the money just to make sure it was right."Now why would I need 8 ten-dollar bills?" This conversation continued for about three minutes until I finally reminded her. "The sugar challenge???"
She giggled, "Oh yeah...there is that."
After six weeks of no-sugar, we are all glad to finally be finished. The thing I missed the most was ice cream. My sweetie went to the store for bananas and he brought home a box of my favorite, Burnt Almond Fudge. Not trusting myself with the ice cream scoop, I asked him to make me a small bowl. Regardless of the fact that everyone told me I wouldn't crave sugar anymore and the chocolate wouldn't taste good...you've heard them all...that was one of the most amazing bowls of ice cream I have ever eaten!
There is nothing like a little absence to make the heart (and the tastebuds) grow fonder!
