This week, LIndas prompt for socs is mean!
Tonight the kids are telling me I am mean! The littles, in our system, that is!
Why am I mean?
Because I wont let them eat junk food! Chocolate, crisps, cake, nooo, not having that!
What I want, and what they want, are totally different!
They want to binge on junk food because they miss Eileen and, you know, eating chocolate and crisps will make them feel good! Not happening!
I miss Eileen too but…there are better ways to cope!
Eating junk food will just lead to binging, I know it!
So, we will distract from the pain of Eileen being gone in other ways, like, for example, watching some X factor on tv, the kids love that show! Or I will maybe read my book later this evening and try to finish it! Its an anthology of true crime stories! So pretty intense, pretty dark! But I’m almost through reading it! I have an hour and 40 mins left to read on it!
Im now drinking a cuppa! Tea makes everything better, as Emily always says!
