The Beginning of the End

Stars are falling out of the sky. Pigs are circling overhead. Hell has frozen over. The world, as we know it, is ending. Okay – that’s a bit dramatic, but my world as I know it may not be “ending” these times, they are a-changin’. How exactly? I’m giving up the wonder that is bubbly beverages and all that wonderful caffeine that goes into those beverages. I’m not saying that I’m never going to have a Diet Coke again, but it certainly is not going to be an every day or even every week occurrence.
Consider this your warning though that as I wean myself off of diet soda over the course of the next few weeks that snarkiness levels will skyrocket. Eye rolling will occur against my will, and hands may shake without my permission. See you on the flip side.

Whoa. Call me when the headaches start to hit.

I already tried this and have failed. The headache is beyond belief. I'm just catching up on your blogs, which I totally love.


School is ALMOST over. I've been eyeing the purple quilting fabric.

This made me chuckle as I have a distinct memory of you introducing me to Dr. Pepper when our families vacationed together in Tahoe years and years ago. I've probably only had it a handful of times since then, but it is pretty good stuff. Good luck and glad you're so happy and that life is good!

No way! I can't imagine a Hutchins woman without also imagining a carbonated cola beverage in hand!

Ha ha! I'm proud of you for making this decision. Good luck! I hear it isn't easy . . . for me, that'd be giving up fries. No can do.
