Hello to whoever reads this,
So day four. Wow, time really flies. Honestly, I woke up thinking this was day three but that didn't add up in my head correctly.
So today was pretty easy until dinner. I had my breakfast of cereal and vinilla soy milk and then my lunch of a meatless italian sausage and marana sause sandwhich. I organized the cupboards, the pantry, and the fridge, pulling out the items that I deemed utterly useless to anyone in my family and seperated the meat and dairy items from the other stuff. I claimed a small shelf in the fridge for my items so that people would know that what they are grabbing, should they not read the label, is vegan.
Then dinner came. It was at this point that my dad finally understood that I was vegan. My mum and I were talking about a recipe that she thought I could eat and I pointed out that the first two items on the ingrediants list were milk and butter. My dad asked what was wrong with milk and butter and I told him they were dairy. "I thought vegetarians could eat dairy," was his reply. "I'm not a vegetarian," I said, "I'm vegan." His reaction suprised me because I'd thought that he understood that yesterday and because when he found out I was "vegetarian" he just became really quiet and didn't say anything, but when he found out I wasn't vegetarian, that I was vegan, he became audibly angry. He said that there were no vegans in this house and that we weren't going to buy a bunch of vegan food. I thought it was a little funny and wanted to ask him what he thought vegans actually ate but I know when to stay quiet. Mum told me to do what I thought was right then continued to explain how she thought that there was no way that I'd stay vegan and all that but that she supports me while I last.
So dinner was...interesting...
I've had a minor headache all day and I'm pretty tired now. That might be coincidence and the fact that it's fairly late but my mind keeps jumping to the word "withdrawl"; I keep wondering when I'm going to see signs of such, but maybe they won't come at all, which would be very nice. :)
