Friends, I have failed. So, yeah...I told you I'm a toe dipper. Not an all in jumper. There's a reason for that. Yup, I failed yesterday, and after I failed once, I quit for the day. I realized I was horribly underprepared for this whole adventure. So, I am sad and I didn't do it but I will try again. One of the problems is a giant strawberry Cassata cake in my fridge. It's a birthday cassata cake, too. How can I not eat my birthday Cassata cake? It would be an affront to the gifter who gave it to me. I would never insult someone who made me a strawberry cassata cake in that way.
And everything, and I mean practically everything, has gluten in it. I was trying to figure out what to have for lunch and here's my thought process: Sandwich? no. Taco bell? probably not. Chicken nuggets? def no. Salad? I don't want salad. Noodles? Sure!
What is wrong with me, I thought after eating Mary Yoder's noodles over mashed potatoes. Which wasn't even that good. And I was listening to a podcast on overbred mice with tumors. Maybe that's why it didn't taste so good? Probably not. As I was half way through it dawned on me that noodles are made from flour which is gluten. Stupid stupid stupid. So, yeah. Stupid. But I kept eating, I mean, I was already in it and I had already paid so, what the hell, right? Right. *Shakes head in disappointment*
Anyway...I'm so disappointed in myself, I am, but...I'll try again. Just not today.
I had this written much more nicely in my head this morning but when I sat down to write it, *poof*, all gone from my head. It's so sad.
