So in my last post I was super excited and ready to rule the world. Today, I'm coming down from a french-fry induced high. Yeah, not so much excitement. Also, we're down a toilet because we had "crap" (literally) seeping underneath our pipe and pooling on the floor which is also our Family Room ceiling!!! Yep. Say it with me YUCK!!!!!!! Damn Richmond homes! Sigh. So, the wind beneath my wings is a little less buoyant.
Anyhoo, back to Veganism. That's going well. Still. On Sunday my family and I was invited to Elitch Gardens (Formerly Six Flags) and had a blast. The only issue: It is NOT A VEGAN FRIENDLY PLACE. That said, I was starving by the end of the night and had the wonderful choices of fries, and bigger sized fries. No veggies on the premise at all (they were sold out??!! WTF??!). No fruit (again, sold out). So my only option was fries. Which the really nice guy at the LAST vending place we visited offered to give me a massive amount because he felt so bad to keep saying "no" to every healthy alternative I asked about. I wanted to cry, but that would have to wait until AFTER I ate a big portion of the very greasy, salty fries. Did I mention that I've had a Gastric Bypass surgery where sugar, excessive oil and large quantities of food make you sick? If I didn't please forgive me and now place in your brain the very real fact that the surgeons are not lying to you (even after 2 plus years out) when they tell you to avoid the previously mentioned things in large quantities. And it also didn't help that as I was trying to "purge" from my mind the burning desire to up-chuck, a very sickly looking man was walking near me coughing and spitting up as he did so. Was I successful at keeping ALL my high-fat, high blood-pressure inducing treats down? Why yes I was!!! I simply had to avoid smelling the puking man's progressively strong cigarette smoke then I was fine!!! How 'bout that??! So now, I'm feeling the "detox" effects of eating crappy. Note to self and others: Prepare and pack your own food (or at least snacks) when you will be away from your kitchen for lengthy periods of time. Ok, my work is done for today! Have a fabulous day!
