As I was cleaning up, I got a knock on the door. As a thank you for giving him the last of my meat filled food, my neighbor, Jimmi James, brought me a whole bag of fresh fruit and veggies from the local farmer's market! I usually can't make it; it's on Monday mornings when I'm at work. What a thoughtful surprise!
All the support I've been getting from friends, family and and the web has been so great. It's more than I would have imagined, and it helps a lot. But anyway, he didn't leave empty-handed. The dairy products in my fridge have been extremley tempting. I had to ditch them or I was gonna crack soon. I didn't realize that it would be the dairy that would be the hardest to kick. But handing it away as I did with my meats gives it a finality to help me ignore the cravings, and accept the new way forward I've chosen. But, damn, even the parmesan had to go. Ouch.
