Was it Elysia’s 21st birthday celebration goodies that caused it? Was it the jalapenos on the nachos that I consumed one too many of. Was it the tang on the hot wings? Was it the bacon on the potato skins?
What caused “IT”? I hope that it was one of the reasons listed above…
I returned home yesterday and sat down to check my emails when suddenly I was overcome by an intense feeling that caused the hair on my arms to stand straight up followed by thoughts of a major earthquake. The first time I recognized this feeling in December of 2004 I stopped in mid sentence and blurted out to my daughter that there was an earthquake coming. I felt and articulated a catastrophic event and two days later Indonesia was struck by a powerful quake; this scared me to no end. There were other times following this occurence that I had this feeling but pushed it aside. People just can’t “know” these things right?!
I also “knew” Japan was going to be hit with a quake. This was the first time that I was aware of the location of the event. It didn’t even seem real to me that I could know that. Again, I only told my family these strange feelings that I received from out of the blue. I also “knew” that China would be hit by a quake but I was actually 100 miles off the exact location of that one…it was on the border!
So here I am again, I was just enjoying my Saturday when I stopped in my tracks…there goes that feeling again. I decided why wait for a disaster to strike. We have been talking endlessly about getting prepared so today hubby and the boys set out to create our emergency kit. If they come up with a nacho MRE, I am going to be all over that but until then, it looks like peanut butter, oatmeal, ramen, rice and chewy bars.
Clearly I am avoiding the weight topic since I did mention that it was Elysia’s 21st birthday celebration week-end. I am not even going to hop onto a scale until next Friday because I am pretty certain I have some ugly truths that I don’t want to look at. It will be a week of detoxing from nachos for me! Back to business for eating healthy and getting on track.
Tre already gave me a pretty rough time when he saw me eating leftover nachos today so I knew I was going to have to do a blog confession. Way to hold me accountable Tre! No, I don’t think you will be getting a treat for a while either…works both ways smarty pants.
