Last night I decided: I will start living very healthily. I will stop eating English licorice even though there is a bowl of it on the top shelf of the cabinet. I will not have a beer, even if it is Friday or Saturday night. I will not justify eating chocolate every time I have exercised. I will not make sauces with lots of cream that mostly only one person in the family (ME) likes. I will not snack on potato chips while I am not drinking beer. And I will, as previously mentioned, not drink beer (except from s-o-m-e-t-i-m-e-s). I will never again buy frozen pizza to feed my kids. I will never again bake any kind of bread with less than 50% whole grain. I will drink lots of water. I will not start smoking.
I thought of this while finishing up some chips, the last sip of beer and some English licorice that was getting stale. Enough of this I thought.
I left it in the car when going to fly. I could not borrow somebody’s phone and call Steve to come back with it, because I did not remember his number. It was a real bad situation.
I dropped it and the front shattered and is looking like an iced-over water puddle that we step on in the beginning of winter before it gets really cold. This incident happened two days ago. And I don’t usually drop phones.I felt very distraught by this.
I left it in the grocery store somewhere last night and it is Sunday and the store won’t open until Monday, and I am afraid that some immigrant worker found it while they were cleaning the store and since they are underpaid they decided to keep it even though it has a shattered front. Since I find passwords annoying, my phone is not locked, and I am wondering what kinds of personal information I dumbly stored on it. I blush when I think of the SMSs to my husband. 🙁
My kids are out and about, and I can’t call them and they can’t call me and I don’t know when I need to pick them up.
A new phone costs more than I want to pay right now. I had secretly planned to buy a new dress.
So when I thought about the last week’s unfortunate incidents last night, I thought that maybe it is my diet that must change. If I stay very healthy I may also become sharp as a wit. I may at least be able to memorize my kids mobile numbers. I thought about starting doing cross word puzzles too, but that seems a little extreme, don’t you think?
