We found out yesterday that my husband's truck needs some major work. Work that we can't really afford. We will figure it out, but it will take some figuring.

In the mean time I'm a bit stressed and in trying to avoid the stress, I find myself thinking about food. ALL THE TIME. I am still full from lunch, but I am thinking about what I can have for a snack. When can I have it? What should I have?


Anything to avoid thinking about money and the truck. I can guarantee you that I will still be in my calorie range for the day. This is not about overeating. This is about my obsessive thought patterns, acknowledging them and noting them here.

    This is very important issue, maybe even one of the most important ones.
Obsessing about something not important is usually a mark of free time, you need to fill that void with something.
Maybe write a bigger blog:)

Good for you, my friend. I'll be praying that you make a way for the truck that doesn't hurt the rest of your budget too much.

Love, Ginger

  Yes, you have wonderful powers of observation, but for the obsession part! You're doing such a good job (agree 4everadonegirl) Steph.

How about going for a walk for 30min or so - might help clear your head.

    That's definitely a good observation to make because until you do (which you have!!) you can't beat it!! Good job, Steph!
