Donut Love

I have had a cold and congestion for the past couple of days. But last night, I started to get a bad cough and wheezing.

I have two inhalers - one that the doctor gave me when I saw him back in October for this same problem, and I also have a fast acting inhaler. My wheeziness has no rhyme or reason to it. I can run four miles and be fine, or I can walk two and need to use it. I can eat pizza and need to use it, but eat pasta and be fine.

It’s annoying.

I can deal with the cold, but not the wheezing, especially when the inhaler doesn’t help. So, I called the doctor this morning, but they can’t fit me in. The nurse asked me some questions over the phone and hopefully will call in a prescription or get me an appointment tomorrow.

Needless to say, I didn’t workout this morning.

Danny dropped Jacob off at school, and I asked him to grab me a coffee. He also brought me back a donut.


I have a serious love for donuts. I try to avoid them because I could probably eat five without blinking an eye. I love them and they love me.

For my birthday next year, I plan on buying about a dozen donuts and eating all of them.

I figure that this will accomplish two things:

  1. Eating a million donuts is like a dream come true. And it will be my birthday, so the calories don’t count, right?
  2. I figure that I will get so sick for eating so many donuts that I will never want to look at another donut again.

Sounds like a win win situation, right? Yeah, maybe not.

After my coffee, I decided to clean this little guy’s room up a bit.

Santa can’t bring new toys if it looks like a toy store threw up in your room. Out with the old, in with the new. The unwanted toys either go to my niece or we donate them to Goodwill.

While I was cleaning, I found four bottles of Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer. My son has a serious obsession with hand sanitizer. Which is pretty ironic, since he licks cars. He gets sick a lot, which means I get sick a lot, which means obviously the sanitizer isn’t doing its job.

Notice the Halloween hand sanitizer theme?

Today will be spent pretty much relaxing and trying to shake this dumb sickness.

Do you have a food that you love but avoid because you know you would overeat?
