Feels like fall this week. I find it difficult to believe that October is mere days away. One happy thing is wearing light-weight sweaters. I think clothes-wise I’m happiest in the fall. Long sleeves and jeans, woo-hoo! I can shave my legs less often and don’t have to think about the gross dry skin on my elbows and how much bat-flap there is under my arms.
When I daydream about my Dad winning the lottery (I never play, but he does), I dream of the usual things: pay off the mortgage, new car, quit work, travel, redecorate. But I also think about those little luxuries that are too expensive for my salary, but would do in a second if I had the chance. Always on this list is permanent hair removal. I don’t care how tedious or painful it is if means never having to shave again. As a blond, laser treatments won’t work for me, so it looks like electrolysis is the only way. I’ve looked into just doing the pits, but it is still way to expensive.
Way more info than you ever wanted? Yeah, I have that tendency.
I haven’t had sugar for 8.5 days now, I’d say nine, but I haven’t had dinner yet. I’ve decided that Diet Coke is the next thing to go. I’ve been craving it. I want to drink it all day. I want to bath in it. I’d swim in it if I could. Therefore it must go. I can’t afford to think about any food that much. Next Monday is the first Coke-free day.
Life without Diet Coke seems dull though. It is the only diet beverage I allow myself. So when that goes away I’m left with iced tea and water. I like sparkling water, but most restaurants don’t carry it, and the ones that do charge way too much. Plus there are no free refills for any bottled water. Leaving me with iced tea, which is a good option, but about half the restaurants I frequent serve lousy, bitter tea that needs a sweetener to take that edge off.
I know water is the healthiest option, but dullsville. I’ll have to buy a variety of sparkling water for next week. I like La Croix sparkling lime and Perrier. I know I’ll be fine; it’s the transition that hurts.
I wonder if there is anymore caffeine-free Diet Coke in the vending machine.
