It's time for my second assignment update for Whiter and Lighter.
Somewhat due to the fact that Cinnamon man suddenly decided
to start drinking wine again - but mostly by my own doing -
I'm running out of wine before the date I wrote on the bag-in-box.
But I'm keeping with my tough love and have not had any wine for a few days.
The last few nights we've mostly been playing Fatal Frame II
so cooking and drinking has ended up on the back burner anyway.
I have made some observations this week:
1. It's easier to pour myself another glass when the bag-in-box is right there. Duh.
2. I firmly believe that a nice home cooked meal (especially pasta) requires
the company of a glass or two of red wine (especially if there's dessert too).
3. I drink (and eat) more when I'm bored (or sad).
Regarding my other intentions:
Substituting coke with tea, water and juice is working very well,
but we are still going through a low period, waiting for a reply from Immigrations.
Therefore the surges of creative (or cleaning) energy have been few and far between.
I would love to hear how you guys are doing!
Has April so far been a time of cleaning/cleansing/change for you?
I know a couple of you only just joined the assignment this week
- have you had time to make any changes?
**Update later same day**
My parents just came home from a trip to France
and swung by with a case of wine and 4 bottles of booze for me.
I can feel my good intentions wavering...
