I am craving sugar, good ole refined white sugar. I want to pour it down my throat and nuzzle it. I have limited myself for maybe three days now and have been doing well. I would like to continue this "better myself" kick I am on. No gummi sour straws or puffy nilla wafer cookies from Bill at the auto body shop down the street. I had healthy apples, oranges, and bananas with coffee for breakfast hoping that would knock out my soon to come afternoon sugar craving, but not so. It is not even 1.30 yet. We are open till 6pm. What is a girl to do. McDonald's iced coffee is calling my name from down the street, our vending machine with all it's krinkly plastic goodness awaits my finger tip punches of the buttons on the front. C3, I miss you. F1, don't forget me.

Last night for dinner Marc and I went to PF Chang's. Yummy moo goo gai pan and brown rice was my dinner option. And then, for dessert, they had these little shot glasses filled with a tiny chocolate cake, or apple crumble, or tres leches, or cheese cake. I ordered cheese cake, even though I am not usually a partaker of the cheese cake, and Marc had the chocolate. It was the perfect amount of sugar. I felt satiated, but at the same time I could have eaten 20 more of them. We then went down to the Cellar Dweller and Annie made me a delicious malibu and orange juice concoction in a tiki cup. I always feel special when I drink out of a tiki cup. Alcohol has a lot of sugar. I guess if I am going to be true to this whole no sugar thing then there has to be no alcohol for me. MMM, Marc is here, gotta go.

let me introduce myself

i feel kinda stupid, joining the ever expanding universe of blogs. but it will help keep family and friends updated. for others who do not know me, i will make an introduction.

my name is sacha, i live in tulsa, oklahoma.i am a month shy of thirty, run a snazzy scooter shop, and am a divorced mom of two gorgeous gals, juniper 4.5 years old, and beila who will be 2 years old in a week on the 23rd.

we live in a red brick house with our house-mate annie and her 7 year old son noah. our animals include a red dog named sallie, a st. bernard named whitman, a black and white cat named toe, and up until recently 4 chickens, 2 neighboring dogs ate them for dinner one day.

right now the girls are at parks' house, their dad. i miss them on these days but love the relief of my eyes darting everywhere looking for the rug rats. i am very lucky that juni and beila get to go to work with me, but i am constantly looking for them, making sure they have not wandered out of the garage door.

right now i am at work with nathan and cara and brad. we are listening to alcione on the brazilian station and watching the rain pitter-patter on the scooters outside. sort of comforting. i hope the rain lets up soon, i rode my bajaj to work!
