Summer has officially started for our family. Wednesday was the last day of school. I now have kids in 11th, 9th, 8th and 2nd grade, as well as a college freshman. Tropical Storm Andrea hit us yesterday, putting a little bit of a “damp”er on the first day of vacation. When my son, The Comedian, came home from a day with friends and was told at 8:30pm that he could not do one more activity, he told us that we were ruining his summer vacation. This doesn’t bode well for the remaining nine weeks.
As my husband and I braved the weather yesterday for a quick run to the store, The Good Guy commented that if the weather kept up, we’d have to come up with a lot of indoor activities for the kids. Then, after a minute of reflection, he said that no one should visit Florida in the summer. Having a tropical storm hit, really is downer.
Today, the storm is gone, the sun is shining and everyone has a smile on their face. Plans have been made to go the pool and spend the day in the sunshine. Twenty four hours has completely changed our perspective. Summer vacation no longer looms large before us as a boring thing to be endured.
The same thing goes for changing your diet. At first, when I went gluten free and low/no sugar, I wondered if I would ever enjoy dinner again. I saw myself eating potatoes every day for the rest of my life. Now, a year and a half later, the sun is shining and I have realized how many different options I have. One of my favorite discoveries has been coconut palm sugar.
