Reality Check

OK, so the removal of sugar from the diet didn't last very long, but I have cut back.

On a totally different note...Wayne is doing some work on a house that a couple is flipping. I got off of work early today, so I stopped by.

It was a total reality check. In actuality, I have been in a lot worse houses and neighborhoods, but let's just say this place made our middle, middle class house look like a mansion. There clearly had been at least two families living in the single family home; there was a broken window, and the carpet was absolutely disgusting.

I'm not writing this to be judgmental at all but rather as a reminder to myself about how incredibly well off my family is and to be more thankful on a regular basis.

Sometimes it's good to have something smack you in the face.
