Not posting ... but for good reason

Haven't been posting as much ... but have had a lot going on. Some changes at work have increased my workload - kind of temporarily as we adjust.

And I'm trying to be more healthy -- which means doing active things instead of sitting here on my bum typing.

We're using the Legacy Park Community center now ... the boys enjoy the play room .. and I can go do whatever (swim/walk/workout) without worrying about them ... which has been the big hold back on going there. Yeah! Ryan's been good about going too. Hopefully this can be a new lifestyle...rather than something that flames out.

Oh....and again. I've dropped Coke. Massive headache on day one. Day two I just CRAVED it SOOO bad. I'm not even doing diet or anything -- I need a clean break to really let go. I may treat myself on Saturdays only - and in moderation. Maybe.

Ok ... enough computer time. Time to water flowers and generally keep movin'!~

And what's REALLY not fair is that while Kelly has given up Coke, there are still several cans of it in the fridge....staring at her every time she opens the door. Beckoning her to enjoy the sweet release that only the ice cold refreshment of a Coca Cola can provide. Practically begging her to hold that icy can in her hands, pop the top--creating that most glorious of sounds--then listening to the fizz of the Coke filling up a glass...enveloping the ice cubes with a caramel-colored blanket that will only make it colder, more refreshing. The ice cubes bumping against each other as the glass fills higher and higher. They seem as excited to be in the Coke as you are to drink it. The anticipation of waiting for the fizz to die down a bit. Watching a small drop of condensation rolling down the side of the glass. Picking up the glass and slowly bringing twelve ounces of liquid relief to your lips. And then the first sip. Only it's not a sip, it's a chug. The carbonation even stings a little, but you don't care. That familiar taste and sensation hits the back of your throat and you take another sip. And another. And another. Finishing with the smack of your lips and an, "Ahhhh" that lets the world know that for just a few seconds, all is right with the world. All is good. Coke is good. Really, really, really good.

Um, so, anyway, we still have Coke in the fridge. (Did I just write food porn?)
