Sindy blogs about how her Thanksgiving holidays went.

How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Mine was a disaster - the dinner, that is. I volunteered to cook the turkey, stuffing and gravy, but it was a total mess! The turkey was undercooked, the stuffing was too soggy, and the gravy was watery. We ended up having to order pizza.

We still had a good Thanksgiving even though we didn't get to have the traditional turkey dinner. We played a competitive-but-friendly game of football in the backyard and then crashed on the couch to watch Ratatouille on DVD afterwards. Plus, my mom bought a couple of pumpkin pies, so it still felt a little like a Thanksgiving feast. But the next time I volunteer to cook dinner, I'm going to enlist the help of my sister. Actually, I'm not sure if she would be a good helper, but at least I can make her do all the stuff that I don't want to do, like chopping onions.

In school-related news, things are going really well with the recycling program! I guess people noticed all the flyers I posted up in the hallways cuz the pop cans and bottles started flooding in! So far, we've collected more than 20,000 cans and bottles! Isn't that great? All the money we collect will go to help pay for extracurricular clubs, field trips and the upcoming Christmas dance in December. I'm really excited that this project is turning out to be a success!

Hmm... I'm trying to think of something more to write, but nothing's comin' to mind. I guess I'm still sufferin' from food coma from all that pizza and pumpkin pie I ate for Thanksgiving dinner... and for breakfast and lunch the next day. I should get off my butt and start working out. What are some good exercises to do now that it's getting colder? and let me know your suggestions!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    • The turkey is always better the next day.
    • Duh, the pie is the best.

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
