Sugar does not do a body good!
Good morning! Happy Monday! Yeah, I know, kind of an oxymoron. But fake it. :)
I've been MIA for a while, but with reason. Unfortunately my grandfather passed away last Wednesday. Since then it's been an organized chaos of the funeral, family time (we're Jewish so we have "shiva"), and lots of back and forth from CT. But anyway...
It's been a long time since my family has hosted a shiva. Basically it is an open house for all your friends/family to come visit. It's a very nice practice but there is one problem. Everyone brings food! Everyone. And most people tend to bring baked goods. Holy cow!
We know I love a good baked good, but at this point they've pretty much become toxic to my system. The first night it was novel, the second night was still somewhat interesting, but by yesterday, when people walked in carrying food I wanted to tell them to take it somewhere else.
I've sampled just about every sweet that people brought in and last night felt pretty sick to my stomach.
Remember on the Cosby show when Vanessa drinks too much and gets very sick, then Bill has them all play the same drinking game but with iced tea (which vanessa thinks is alcohol)? Well, it's kind of like I hit rock bottom and honestly think now might be a good time to FINALLY give up on the sugar.
So aside from that, I'm off to Costa Rica in two days. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm honestly not excited. I will be, just not yet. I have a bunch of things to do and there's still all the family stuff going on. I think once I sit down on the plane I will sigh the loudest sigh ever, and then i'll be excited.
Hope you all have a nice Monday! xoxo
