Lots to unpack here. It's just a time of year with a lot of activity going on.
First things first, my request to have my parking ticket dropped was denied, as I figured it would be. I'm going to pay it, call it my idiot tax, and keep on keeping on. That said, the fine people at Metropolis Parking can go park themselves.
Next. I am trying to avoid sweets as best I can. The easiest way is to remove it from my home. At the moment, we have a few jelly beans at the house - and that's it. That said, there are M&Ms for sale in the breakroom, and I would break into those in a heartbeat. But, I won't. Not for now. The secret, I think, is to tell myself I can have sweets if I want them - and right now, I don't. So it's a "not now" mentality. Delay that gratification, and hold out for the thing you really, really want. Like, a brownie from a box mix, provided the person who made it didn't use the "cake like" instructions. Bastards.
Now, fruit? I'm all over the fruit. Right now, it's sumo orange time. Technically, according to Mom's boyfriend, they're a tangerine/orange hybrid that took over 30 years to develop. Worth it.
There's just a lot going on out there. And I feel overwhelmed by it, but I remember I've done more with less - so this is just a cake walk.
Sans cake, because, trying to cut back on the sugar.
So, you know - it's a walk.
