My addiction began very young, before I was old enough to know much about addictions. It took hold of me and I have been living with this privately for many years, until now! My family knows of course, it's hard to hide it from those you live with, they seem to deal well with it and will even partake in the ritual with me on occasion! It calls me all times of the day, morning, noon and night, I rarely resist, I have very little will power when it comes to this particular substance. When I was younger there were many varieties that I would dabble in but about 11 years ago, I honed in on one type and have stayed loyal to it since. What is this addiction that has such a tight hold on a women with three kids and a husband depending on her?
Yes, it's true! I am ashamed, OK, well not that ashamed, maybe just a little bit!
My family (everyone) often comment that I am alive because of the invention of Cereal, it has been a staple in my diet for as long as I have been eating! There is something about the crunch and milk and sweetness that just calls my name "Maryliiiinnn, Maryliiiinnn!" I wake up craving it in the morning, and for the most part, I eat the same kind day after day after day, sometimes multiple times a day! In fact I don't think I ate much of anything else the four years I was in High School! The Frosted Mini Wheats started while I was pregnant with Lexi and I have devoured it since, any kind really, and I try to keep different flavors on hand so I have a choice. In fact, as of two days ago I had 6 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats in my pantry, now to be fair, James and Grace also enjoy them and will often eat them for breakfast as well. Jimmy will partake once in a while but mostly he just lets me eat my self silly with the delicious little buggers! I mean how can you go wrong with a meal that lends itself as a main course, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, not to mention a snack for the hours in between!
I suppose the last week as we have been "camping" in our house hasn't been soo bad for me because, well, my favorite food is more acceptable to eat three times a day if needs be! What? Don't judge me! :)
