No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
...Because it is all about making choices up in here. (But seriously, do NOT call me Sophie. I have enough freakin' names between my old pseudonym and my pretend-but-significant last name and ACK! Identity crisis! Let's not add to the maddness mkay?)
But choices, they are being chosen, muchly, you know?
For instance, do I start packing now (and leave my son who is still living in the house possibly lacking stuff he needs)? I think yes on this one. It is only for a few weeks, he will be fine. And the packing, it does not do its self. *Sigh* Part of me thinks, "You have all month." but another part of me slaps her and says, "Are you mad?! You're already behind! This stuff takes so long and you should have started long ago, etc."
Do I REALLY want to go through with an estate sale? It would be so much easier to just donate it all. Nice burly men would come with a big truck and just cart it all off. Done. But I really want to give some $ to the Oklahoma relief effort so this is not really a choice. But it keeps going through my head anyway!
Do I make my son go ahead and move to my mom's house with me, just for the few more weeks he is home? It would certainly make things less complicated for me.
Do I make SAD food for Joe's upcoming grad party and if I do, can I trust myself to stay out of it?
What do I want to limit with my eating? Can I have raw oats? In the past, I've found them helpful. Do I want to limit my nuts and avos or just do what a girl needs to do to get her through the day RAW, you know? I am doing Hallelujah Diet style, 85% raw, 15% cooked vegan. To supplement or not to supplement, that is the question!
And what stays and what goes? That is the crux of it all. Furniture, food, ideas, relationships...this one stays, that one goes. Ebb and flow. High tide, low tide. Wax on, wax off...ok I think we get the point!
But all this spinning in a circle, not deciding, is keeping me from doing what I need to be doing--just getting in there and getting it done. So I am diving in. Set a date for the sale. Set a date for the move. Left a whole week for the cleaning. Decided to hire help with the cleaning instead of trying to do it all myself. Set a date for the breakdown. Kidding! I'm a kidder.
But seriously. Choosy moms choose sanity.
