Oh my, it's been a wonderful week or two. Everything this week of the year should be. I hope yours was too!
And now it's time to put away the things of last year, and last week. Like the 5 pies, dozens of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, mint brownies, toffee, fudge, shortbread cookies (not my idea), meringues and so on.
In an attempt to be a tiny little fraction as cool as the Ken Craig family (read him if you don't. You must.) I am taking my own family off of sugar to start off the year. His family goes off for the entire month of January and I'm taking mine off for the entire first week. Minus the first two days because there are still treats in the house and we need dessert after FHE. But THEN. Then, I tell you, we're off sugar for the first time in EVER. For seven days.
I am not sure if I will survive so I am writing this post as a kind of farewell, just in case. I'm also considering posting something every day so I have something to live for. Muuuuust wriiiiiiiite pooooooost. Like that. Because I doubt that things like feeding children so they don't starve and making sure no catastrophe hits here at home will be enough motivation for me with no sugar to push me along.
