SMP = Seven Minute Post
Weeks that start on Tuesday are HARD for me. I feel perpetually "off". The only redeeming thing about weeks like this is that Friday arrives much more quickly!
Abbey's appointment with the allergist confirmed that she IS allergic to pistachios. Along with two other tree nuts--pecans and hazelnuts, with hazelnuts winning the "most allergic nut" for her. So, the EpiPen stays because tree nut allergies tend to fall into the life-threatening category. I'm honestly just glad to know conclusively. And true to form, Abbey was very brave during the testing. Not sure I completely understand what the girl who endured her dental fillings without being numbed up was afraid of!
Today is bible study day and the end of my 7 food fast. Of COURSE we're all going to lunch afterwards. OF COURSE. I modified my fast a bit since I originally wrote about it. Initially I was only going to eat 7 foods but after I got to bible study last time I decided to cut out seven things. I cut out all caffeine, soda, sugar, grains, ALL processed food, beef (I adore beef), and for the life of me I can never remember the last one. I have it written down somewhere...I'll find it later. It's been hard but very very good (feels like I talk about this all the time) and for this next two week period we'll be looking at clothes and their excess our lives. I get to wear the same seven pieces of clothing for two weeks. I'm still choosing what those pieces will be but I'm sure you'll hear about it so stay tuned.
My seven minutes are up. Hilarious to me that I started these seven minute posts before I knew the significance 7 would have in my life!
Peace out, peeps, and HAPPY hump day!
