What a lazy day! I slept in. We did less schoolwork than planned so the kids could shop for stocking stuffers for their dad and grandpa. After lunch we went to another store to buy some "twinkling" lights to replace the ones on the railing as one had literally burnt out. I had smelled something electrical the past couple of days and finally found the bulbs that caused the odor. Glad I was home when they burst! After dinner I worked on my James bible study. Now we're watching Dick Van Dyke before the kids head to bed.
Tomorrow: gym, school and playgroup at 5:30. I only have to take a green salad for the dinner so that will be simple. Kids are excited as they've never had a gift exchange before at playgroup. We also usually meet on Saturday, but had to come up with an alternate date this month. Anyway....a pretty calm day overall...again!
SODA CHALLENGE - DAY 5
No soda! I was thrilled that I woke up without a headache, but it was back by about 10 a.m. and it was definitely much stronger than before. I do believe it is from removing the extra caffeine and I read online that the headaches or other withdrawal symptoms can last 2-5 days. I've had three days of headaches so should be on the down side of these. If not it means my sinus stuff is kicking back in which means a low lying infection.
First outside challenge will be tomorrow night at playgroup as there is ALWAYS some soda offered. My plan: Take a bottle of water with me so I'm not tempted to fill a glass.
