Singing the Ice Cream Blues!

So, this is the first day on the road to fulfilling my new purpose in life and I have spent the first half of it feeling the effects of a hot fudge sundae enjoyed last night.

Sugar not only effects my blood sugar, but also my pain levels, and the fat content plus the cold are not good for my liver. Chocolate can give me migraines and dairy creates phlegm which makes me cough. So a couple of minutes of heaven turns into several hours of regret and suffering.

On top of all this (or probably because of it), I did not have the greatest of sleeps either. Pain makes getting comfortable quite difficult and nothing seemed to help.

But you learn to pick your battles. The ice cream was a thank you from a friend. I graciously accepted it and asked her to not buy me any more. But I wasn’t going to let it go to waste and knew exactly what would happen. So I only have myself to blame.

I am about to have a nap before Kay comes over to spend the rest of the evening and the night here. She hasn’t been feeling well either so we will probably stretch out on the couch and chair watching movies. I can’t think of a better way to recuperate.

So, work on my purpose will just have to wait another day. However, just knowing I have one to look forward to is in itself golden.
