Day 17 - The Good Aunt

My nephew (whom I adore!!) is coming to spend the night at our place with his father this weekend. I'm cleaning and decorating the place with skulls and spiders for Halloween. I'm also digging into the candy supply I got him (just for the sake of his teeth, of course). Damn awesome cleansing this time of year - I'm really appreciating the extra sugar rushes.

This is the first 'sleepover' they've had when I've been on a cleanse. Usually I'm half-tipsy with wine the whole time watching them play HALO. It's always fun, but I pay for it in the morning at 6:30 when he gets up.

We always go out for bagels and hot chocolate at the donut shop down the street and then take a walk around the neighborhood to look at the big frat houses (or 'fart houses' as he calls them) and hit the playground for some running around. I'm often a little hung over for that kind of adventure first thing in the morning, though I always manage to pull it off. This time, though, I should be clear-eyed and fresh. Unless I'm recovering from a sugar crash ...

11 days to go ...!!
