Crumbs between the Cracks

Introducing Crumbs between the Cracks.

I often have a funny anecdote or story to share. It isn’t enough for a post, but is poignant or entertaining enough to be mentioned.

In brainstorming with my staff—that consisted of my two teenagers—my son came up with Crumbs between the Cracks, after we nixed Tiny Tidbits (been done) and several other ideas.

Expect me to begin tossing crumbs into Playing with Perfect from time to time.

If it works—great!

If not, we’ll blame it on my getting off the Coke his week—cold turkey. Diet Coke, that is. I am half way through Day 3 and the dull headache has set in. My thinking could be impaired. Diet Coke is a bit of an addiction for me. I   always think I can drink a little bit, or just one in the morning for the jolt of caffeine. Then one turns into two…and soon I have one in the evening, which keeps me up all night. And then I notice that I drink very little water…and way too much Coke. Inevitably, I end up at Sheetz at 7am, because the kids (or somebody) consumed the last of the Diet Coke…or some such thing. Fed up with my addiction, I quit.

And I get a little (a lot, actually) short-tempered, not to mention sluggish and snarky–for the first week. Then I adapt. Still, if this whole crumbs idea is a disaster, I’m blaming the Diet Coke!!

Please do let me know what you think in the coming days and weeks.
