I think about posting something on this blog every day but then I think about my life and am sure it isn’t interesting enough to warrant a post. But I’ve decided not to be such a harsh judge of my world. I’ll just write what comes to mind instead of thinking of this as a diary of sorts. That will probably be better for everyone! My mind is such a busy area that I flit from thought to thought without regard for connections. Perhaps that means I have a creative mind…..or more likely, it is related to ADHD. In general, I’m a starter, not a finisher and I guess I find it kind of sad that I can’t even finish my thoughts!
I find a food and I love that food for an unspecified amount of time. Right now it is a certain sandwich that I make here at home. I love that sandwich and I eat way too many of them. I love it enough that I bought a loaf of the same bread and the same jar of filling that I have at home and took it to my office. Funny thing is I don’t like the sandwich nearly as much at my office. I thought maybe I was at the end of my love for the sandwich but when I came home, I found I still loved the sandwich at home. When I think about it, I see this is another pattern in my life. My Mom used to get cookies and offer them to me when I came over for a visit. I loved the cookies and ended up wanting more. I wanted more bad enough that I would stop at the grocery store and buy some for my house. They just weren’t the same at my house. I didn’t care for them at all once they came into my house. Interestingly enough (interesting to me anyway!) I would sometimes pick the cookies up for my Mom before visiting. Those cookies were as good as ever. It was just when they got into my house that I would no longer like them. My guess is there was a certain amount of comfort in eating the cookies with my Mom and it just couldn’t be replicated when I ate them at home. Same with the sandwich. It is comfort food at home but I don’t get the same comfort when eating the same sandwich at the office. There are many more similar examples but now I have a strange desire to go and work out. This feeling doesn’t come over me very often so I better get going before the feeling is gone……….
