July, Independence, and All Change

It seems like January was just yesterday. 

A new thing I’ve started this month – green smoothies! Or smoothies, in general. I’m currently on the second day of a 3-day smoothie cleanse, and I’m feeling great. It’s a good feeling to know that the instant I’m feeling peckish, I can whip up a smoothie and drink that, and have all the cravings magically disappear. It’s a great way to make myself eat celery, which I absolutely detest in its raw and cooked form. 

That said, I have been experiencing cravings for raw food like crazy since I started. I miss chewing, snacking, and it’s like any little thing sets me off. I’ve thought of, in no particular order, donuts, frozen yogurt, chocolate, chips, pizza, beer, even kfc. I’m never one to crave junk food, not at all, but right now I just want everything and anything. BREAD is a huge thing. I crave that floury, buttery goodness so much, I can’t even describe it. But I will stick to my guns and tough this out. 3 days, just on smoothies, it’s not too bad. It’s not bad at all. Once the three days are up, I might still do one green smoothie a day, just for the hell of it. It’s a great way to put away the required vegetables and fruits – you can never have too much of those. 

The second all change – yes, there are two this month – is that I’m now a property owner! *Cue applause and confetti. Well, loan approval pending, but all the papers are signed. Once I get the go ahead from the bank, I will effectively owe my mom and the bank a fuckton of money. I really shouldn’t be looking forward to that, but surprisingly, I am. Guess it’s because I know my money’s going to a good place instead of being spent on frivolous things. It’s expensive (by some standards), but it’s a (I guess) good investment. Funny how I’m not afraid of being saddled with a debt to the tune of a little more than half a million?

Expected completion is in the first quarter of next year. And then I’ll have to worry about getting some tenants for the place… actually I’m already worrying about that now. Oh well. Everything will fall into place. Boat, dock, course, and all that. 

Right?

Two days to Independence Day! (Three if time difference is taken into consideration but hey.)
