STRESS - Help
Friday, March 25, 2016
It has been a long time since I blogged. I write in my food journal every day but today I felt like I needed more. I really don't have a lot of stress but I do get very upset and then I eat the wrong stuff.....like chocolate....and I will eat it until it is out of sight. Last night did it for me. My beloved husband broke (another) my last favorite wine glass from a set of four. I know that doesn't sound like much to some but to me it meant a lot. Thankfully it wasn't one of my crystal ones.. It was special because it would hold 3.5 oz of my favorite wine....not a lot but enough to satisfy the taste. I love my husband but in the almost 12 years we have been married he has broken more glasses, cups and a very nice tea pot that I loved. A lot of the things were sentimental to me and can't be replaced.....I know they are just "things" but they were my things. Why are men so clumsy. My husband is very helpful.....I do the cooking and most of the time he will do the dishes......he likes to do the laundry and I fold it all, mostly because he can't fold.
I am trying to find a way to get through the times of emotional eating without pigging out. I usually have a hard time around the Holiday's because of all the baking and candy making I do but that is slowly getting better. NOW, I need to find a way to get through the times when my dear husband breaks something of mine that he knows I like. Funny thing.....when he broke my tea pot ....he hid it in his closet and of course I found it but left it for him to toss out. I know he means well and I still love him but it just seems like you want to yell at him or you want to say something stupid like "why can't I have anything nice that you won't break". I know it's just material things but they meant something to me. Don't worry I won't toss him out like he did to my tea pot......we've known each other since 7th grade so, I'll keep him and the stress too.
Thanks everyone for letting me vent ........
