Where did the week go?

I can't believe it's Thursday! Since starting school I feel like my week goes from Tuesday to Tuesday. I wonder what I'm going to do when I start taking TWO classes!? Yikes.

I haven't been to the office yet this week so today is the day. I've got to do banking, bookkeeping, lunch...and then a few errands. Like a stop at the store. We're out of toilet paper! How long has it's been since you've run out of toilet paper? I never run out of toilet paper!

It's gray and dreary out...perfect weather in my opinion. And it's supposed to rain this weekend...which really makes me happy. I can't wait. Not sure what's going on for the weekend...other than my nephew spending the night and a football game on Sunday. Other than that...I'm thinking we've got nothing going on. How nice is that?
Hmmm...why do I feel like I'm forgetting something? I'll have to think about that.

Fasting - Day 3:
Breakfast: Quesadilla on whole wheat tortilla with refried beans and a sprinkling of cheese, applesauce with cinnamon, juice.
Lunch: Quesadilla on whole wheat tortilla with refried beans and a sprinkling of cheese, salad, ice water and a clementine.
Snack: dried fruit and nuts.
Dinner: Quesadilla on whole wheat tortilla with sauteed mushrooms, onions, red pepper and spinach with a sprinkling of cheese, ice water.
Snack: a clementine.
Thoughts: I'm feeling better today. I started feeling more myself yesterday about halfway through my shift at the book store. My friend/boss always makes a bank run in the afternoon...and she always brings us coffee from S-buck's. But...yesterday...I declined the offer. She looked at me like I was crazy...but didn't question. Later, we were talking about something else, and fasting came up so I told her. She said, "Why didn't you TELL me? I'd have gone to Jamba Juice instead!" Isn't she sweet? She is so nice...and so cool. We have a lot of fun working together.
So...today is Day 4 and I am feeling better. I still really want a diet Coke...but I'm not weepy about it. Thank goodness...! I felt like such a wimp! I was really trying to prepare to have good healthy food for this...and I gathered up a lot of variety...but I'm finding myself eating the same things. As you can see from yesterday's menu! Quesadillas...all day. But they were good. And they were healthy. And they were filling. So...I had one for breakfast today, too!
I am making some modifications to the diet because I believe that the main thing I'm supposed to be fasting from is caffeine...mainly the soda. So I'm still eating healthy. And I'm not eating sweets. I'm adding in small amounts of dairy. And it's OK. This is obviously not a strict Daniel Fast. But I am using it as a guideline. And before I add anything I pray and I ask God if it's OK. And He is quick to answer. So as long as I am obedient...and don't drink soda...it's all good!

I have a little saying...

what ever you crave the most is probably what you need least.

you probably didn't want to hear that but i believe it to be true.

we are just on each today aren't we : ) (in a good way, of course!)
