My daughter and I needed a haircut. I finally got around to doing it again. I still had this lingering fear that if we got this haircut, we'd come home to an ill boy. Even though I knew he wasn't feeling sick doesn't diminish the thought since last time we got our hair cut, he ended up in the ER. Logically I know that the two things don't correlate, but having gone through such a traumatic event causes the one thing to be as embedded as the other for that day.
It also doesn't help that I have friends going through trauma recently too. There was the death of someone my parent's age (mid-60's), a dog that needed to be put down (age 18), and a friend with a husband in the hospital ICU from a stroke (age 36). I know that none of them are my relatives, but seeing all this doesn't stop bringing it up. I know my son is perfectly healthy today, but that doesn't stop me worrying about his health ever.
I was sure to have breakfast before heading out. I added chopped walnuts on top this time!
We had to run to WalMart to find those Strawberry Cheerios, so while we were there I picked up a bag of candies. My daughter was smart enough to be able to divide the number of candies (28) equally between the 4 of us in her head (7 per person). I started out with the Reese's.
Had some pizza, we stopped to get the the heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's.
I went back for another piece.
Then finished off the rest of my 7 pieces. I am weak around chocolate.
Later we had dinner. I tried to have some of the leftover chicken pasta. It was still bland, I really should have added more lemon.
I should have just went with what I really wanted and made for everyone else to begin with. I made this one for me when I made my husband's corn dogs after I got him up from a late nap.
I never claimed that every day will be a great one. Some days I just need something less than nutritious. As long as most days are awesome, it's all fine. I don't even feel the need to have the leftovers when I eat salty fatty items.
I also learned that I can get through stressful days. I know that I can get haircuts without drama happening. The more I do the action, the better I'll feel about it each time and the easier it will become.
