My mind is full of random thoughts today. Here’s what’s swirling around in my head right now.
- Last weekend’s 60 minutes report on Sugar. I had previously read the article “Is Sugar Toxic” in the NY Times by Dr. Robert Lustig who is featured in the interview on 60 minutes. Sugar and it’s effects on the body has weighed heavily on my mind for some time. I have toyed with giving it up, but find it very difficult to make such a drastic change. Sugar is everywhere. It’s very challenging to stay away from it.
- Easter is not about the bunny! I saw this on Facebook and it’s so true. But try telling my mother that. She believes that I am trying to suck the life out of holidays because I shun the excessive gift giving that has become the norm in my family. My child still has Christmas gifts in the basement because it was simply too much. I am also trying to discourage the candy aspect of Easter and of course this makes me the Grinch who stole Easter.
- Graduate school…I have a meeting next week to discuss a new Master’s in Nursing program at a local college. The program starts in July and runs for two years. It is every Tuesday night. Carlos starts full day kindergarten in September. This will be the first time in 5 years that I will have some “free” time. I have enjoyed every single precious moment I have had with my son, but the truth is that we are both ready for him to be in school. I am not sure that adding another responsibility so soon is a good idea. I’m leaning towards waiting a year and beginning in July 2013.
What’s on your mind?
