87 more hours until my life is changed forever! Haven't really been nervous until now. Been joking with hubby that I'll finally have a vacation from him!
I'm not nervous about the surgery itself, I'm worrying more about if I can DO this!
Can I give up my soda? Yeah. Already have.
Can I give up my sweets? Yep. Done it!
What I find I have my biggest trouble with, is chatting with people when there is food around. You're talking with someone and there's snack foods, finger foods, candy dishes... I find myself reaching for that more than anything! The other day, hubby and I were at my daughters, and she had a bowl of wasabi peas. I HATE those! Didn't even realize I'd reached for them until one was in my mouth and I was hopping around the living room looking like a cat that had stepped in the dog's poo!
Last night, at the church's Maundy Thursday dinner, I found myself nibbling on the cheese and grapes. And nibbling, and nibbling. I'd push it away from me. It would find it's way back. I got up to go chat with someone clear on the other side of the room. Someone brought me a plate of nibblies. I told them "No." They set it on the table next to me! ARRRRGGG!
Well, after Tuesday, they do that, they might find something nasty on their feet. Or, I might just surprise myself and not touch it. God will give me strength for this!
Meanwhile, I wish you all a Good Friday!
