I’m so over my food choices right now! It just hit me hard today for some reason. I’ve been doing pretty good until recently and now I NEED red meat! I said from the beginning that I got the 4th of July off and I’m so so happy I did!!! Only a few days left and I get one of hubby’s uber delicious hamburgers, french fries (yes..I get them now…I NEVER tire of potatoes!), donuts, steak, ribs, baked potato (yep…again)….and asparagus! That’s on my list of must eats for the 4th! And I have to say if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life it would hands down be potatoes. Now if only I could cover my potatoes in garlic, cream, and cheese right now life would be better. Or rosemary. Ok…no more talks of food.
I’m crying tonight reading about the child/slave labor in the cocoa fields. I love my bubble. Anyone who knows me well knows how much I love bubbles. Happy, blissful, bubbles where no bad happens and everything is good and there are no worries. My bubble is being completely ripped away from me and I want to just curl up on the couch with a chocolate candy bar and a season of Pretty Little Liars and pretend like bad only happens on my show. But its not the case. My candy bars are coming at a horrible cost and its crushing. (Please noone suggest I read about sugar right now!!! I don’t think I could handle that just yet!) These are real children…some as young as my son….working nonstop everyday for my candy bar. Beaten for my candy bar. I thought I was paying .99 cents for my oh so yummy Watchamacalit…not the flesh of a child. So yea…bye bye bubble.
