Grr! I went out on a date tonight (second date, more details when I feel like I can talk about it without jinxing it!) and then I had to dash to get ready for work, and forgot my lunch. So it will be either Taco Bell for a chicken taco salad, or a sandwich from another 24 hour place nearby. I'm not pleased that I forgot my lunch, but not much I can do about it now!
Slept pretty well today, but did wake up a couple of times - I need to go back to Linens 'N' Things in the morning and get more blackout curtains. Even though there is much less light in my place than there was before I hung up the blanket and put these curtains over the blinds, the light still wakes me up. That SoCal sun is STRONG!
Dinner with my date was at PF Chang's, and I was thrilled to see that there was lamb on the menu! Wok-seared lamb served with scallions on lettuce, with brown rice. YUM!
I spent a little more time this morning organizing my apartment - it is looking better and better, and I look forward to getting the rest of it under control.
I have very little food in the apartment other than my leftovers from PF Chang's, and I meant to bring those for lunch! I'll be heading to Linens 'N' Things and Trader Joe's in the morning.
I think my mother is working on improving her diet. She keeps emailing me asking me questions about what to eat, what to drink (other than water). For my birthday she sent me a two-tiered stainless steel fruit and vegetable basket to store stuff on because she knows I eat lots of fruits and veggies. I couldn't use it because I just don't have the counter space, but I was pleased, too, because she used to give me a hard time about this 'fad' diet I follow. But over the years, she has seen how I eat and how much healthier I'm getting, and she seems to be coming around! I love it!
