You know how sometimes you have one of those days where it takes every bit of energy you have to try to keep your composure because inside you are about to explode?! Yup, Saturday was that day for me. We are feeling the effects of daddy being gone and look forward to our nightly chats on FaceTime. Both kids were in rare form today that would give any Oscar winner a run for their money. Happy then sad or angry, laughing to 3 seconds later screaming or crying about something so silly. I actually had to look at the moon tonight to see if I could blame it on that. Nope.
So some people turn to alcohol to numb themselves from the day to day grind or after a terrible day, me not so much. I had to go get a few groceries and then found myself staring at the ice cream in the frozen food section. Not a normal place for me, so I had some labels to read. I was blown away by the amount of crap in most of the ice cream and realized again why I make my own nightly healthy treats.
Let’s be clear, I was reading the labels and evaluating the damage I was going to be doing. I had every intention of purchasing a pint of ice cream and eating the WHOLE entire thing in one sitting. So I settled on this gelato. Unfortunately it did not taste nearly as awesome as it sounds and the pecans were kinda mushy and gross, but I followed through with my commitment and ate it all. That’s the worst feeling when you have such high expectations and then it’s nothing like you had envisioned.
Lesson learned, next time I want to indulge I will not settle for the easy way out and get a pint from the store, I will make my own. It will taste better and I will be able to eat the ingredients I want. ⭐️ There’s always a lesson to learn with every experience we have ⭐️ #notasgoodasitlooks #gelato #wastedcalories #oneofthosedays #dontdrink #sober #indulge #indulginggonewrong #meh #crazykids #soloparenting #whenisdaddycominghome #ugh #icantbetheonlyone #imnotalone
