REINING IN MY INNER CHILD 6
Thursday, July 27, 2017
My inner child
is a crafty character, always poised to take advantage of a vulnerable situation. Over the past 3 months I've been working furiously outside trying to revitalize my lawn.
I've been fighting poor soil, weeds, moles, squirrels and (until recently) drought. Lots of sweat, dirt, bugs and sore muscles - but at least the grass started growing...and it was beautiful
...for a couple of weeks, and then for some mysterious reason it started dying off.
Understandably I was rather discouraged and when I get discouraged I tend to turn to sweets to cheer me up. My inner child was happy to help me. Tootsie rolls, Twix, jelly beans, cookies flowed into the house and into my mouth.
Fortunately the sugar binge has come to an end (the numbers on the scale provided a big "wake up" call).
I have also resumed my exercise routine which has always acted like "healthy" sweets for the spirit.
The fate of the lawn still hangs in the balance but I am not focusing on that anymore. It's only "dirt" and there are many more important things to contemplate.
Hope you are all having a fabulous summer. Thanks for reading this blog and for your support.
