good news, bad news…

So, do you want the good news or the bad news.

The good news is that some friends of ours from New Mexico surprised us with a visit yesterday evening, and they are staying with us for a couple of days.

The bad news is that I don’t think I’m going to do this cleanse right now.

The good news is that my son got accepted into the school we were hoping for.

The good news is that we are about to go on a truly awesome vacation!

The good news is that when we get back from our vacation we are moving into our new house!

The bad news is that from what I’ve heard from different friends who have experienced the master cleanse, tight schedules and busy months are not necessarily the best times to detox.  I read that you need to ease yourself off of this diet, but I will be relaxing on a beach in Hawaii and I don’t really want to be worried about how my body is going to react to a cocktail.

The good news is that I had told all of this to my husband before we started so I get to say, “I told you so”.

The bad news is that I already wrote it down in a blog.  UGH.

Sometimes we want something so bad that we are willing to force it to happen even when all the signs are pointing towards wait.  Admitting my timing error is definitely humbling.

I want to cleanse right now.  

Before vacation, before all the madness of moving, before lent is over. . .but it sounds like I should have started over a week ago.

The reality is that “right now” I just don’t have the 12 plus days I need to fit it all in. . . and I am NOT fasting in Hawaii.

I haven’t decided what that means yet, maybe I will continue the cleanse but cut it a few days short.  Maybe I will add juices into it so that my body doesn’t need so many recovery days.  Maybe I will just enjoy our company and not worry about it right now.

I don’t know.

But, I will cleanse eventually, when it isn’t so forced.

In the meantime, I will celebrate all of that good news.  My son is going to attend our school of choice!!  YAY!!  We are days away from closing on our house!! YAY!! We are about to go on vacation! Our friends are here to visit! I get to see another friend on Friday! YAY,YAY,YAY!!

All great news.

So, I only got to cleanse for two days, so what?

I’ve got way too much to be excited about to allow myself dwell on that.
