Who understands anything anymore? Not me...so today I got up and didn't feel hungry-which is good since I had birthday cake and ice cream for dinner last night. Sure the calories and crap were terrible but the gluten just about killed me-I spent hours in physical and mental agony (because I do realize I did it to myself). Now I eat breakfast every morning but since I wasn't hungry, I decided not to eat until I felt hungry...sounds so simple-why can't I do that all the time, right?
Anways, I felt clear-headed, focused and energetic...like my hormones and whatnot were in good working order. I started cleaning and it's not even my house. I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea. My friends are going through a real tough time--he's seriously ill and she spends almost all of her time either working or taking care of him. They just can't afford round-the-clock care for him. My husband and I were thrilled to be able to help them in this way. We're cleaning out the garage, cabinets, closets, installing shelves, organizing spaces and things like that, trying to make life easier for them. This work, I hope, makes our love for them, visible (to paraphase Khalil Gibran).
