Well, I did it and it hasn't been pretty. On November the 3rd, I committed to a sugar fast and I have been under non-stop attack since then. The first weekend alone was so over the top that I had to call my mom in for reinforcement. There was a broken down vehicle hours away from home, mishandled construction permits, gas furnace being installed in one of our rental properties, house guests, lice in waist length hair, ear infection, spider bites (the previous 3 required Dr. appointments), a birthday party for our one year old with me making a standing Winnie the Pooh cake and food for 50, an unfinished entry way that was being painted at midnight before the party in a color that I ended up hating.... that was just Thursday night until Saturday.
It didn't stop there and the pinnacle of it all was our precious baby falling down a huge flight of stairs with me running down them after him trying to catch him, screaming like I have never screamed before. Our house was crazy insane and someone left the baby gate open. I almost caught his foot as he was going over and I just missed him. I am still suffering from PTSD and can hardly close my eyes without seeing him tumbling down over and over. He is ok, thank you, thank you, thank you, Almighty Father. The doctors checked him out and miracle beyond all miracles, he came away with just an abrasion on his forehead and a huge lump on the back of his head. The Dr. confirmed that I was in worse shape than he was. For days, I felt like I had suffered a heart attack. You see, our stairs are long and very steep and adults have to be super cautious going down, as many people have slipped on them.
I am not catching a break and I can honestly say, satan is ramping it up. My friends have commented
that they can't believe everything that is happening to me/our family. I am committed to my fast and have done well so far and have not had any sugar. I wasn't even tempted at Thanksgiving (we hosted 21 people over for dinner) due to the fact that I had a wicked migraine and spent most of the day in bed with a house full of people eating food that I cooked, but couldn't enjoy.
Well, that's enough of my saga for tonight. There is more, but I am just too tired. I have missed being on line and catching up on all the blogs.
