A couple of things I noticed about yesterday...one is that I needed to pee lots more than I would normally. I even got up during the night, which I never do. So my sleep was interrupted and I slept late yet again this morning and woke up feeling a bit down and depressed. I guess it stands to reason since my buddy Ďfoodí has left me! The other thing I noticed was that after Ďdinnerí last night I wanted to bite something...crunchy and chewy like a cracker or something. This morning as I was journaling I played with the idea of biting and let myself feel what it would be like. I decided that at some point in the life cycle I was definitely a carnivorous animal. Iím thinking cheetah. The fantasy was exciting, delicious, satisfying. But, back to reality. The issue for me is sarcasm. The root of the word is flesh tearing. Kind of gross when I think about it, but Iíve had this sarcastic streak for a long, long time. Iíve toned it down here in my golden years, but there are still traces. What Iím noticing lately is that when people question me in any kind of challenging way, my impulse is to bite back. Iím not looking for trouble here, but Iím sure that this is one of the Ďissuesí Iíll need to deal with on this journey.
Had to work today, so after coming home from that, I did some gardening. The sun has finally appeared and I have little veggie sprouts poking their heads out! I donít even remember what all I planted, so it should be fun discovering whatís in my planters!
Iíve been surprisingly not hungry so far. I hear day three is a bear though, so wish me luck!
