Ok, so this is from over a week ago......remember when I had all those problems cutting/pasting on my computer? We finally fixed it. So, this is a little dated (2 Thursday's ago happenings, the 8th I think) but it's a good blog so here we go.....
Music: "Rag doll" by The Four Seasons
There is something immensely gratifying about doing the dishes. Since I started cooking up a storm with this diet and eating less processed foods....the sink piles up awfully fast. But somehow, dishes seem rather cathartic to me. Very simple act of transforming something clogged to something pure and clean. Makes me think of the "deflect" I want to order from NAP. It's tough. There's only so much $ to go around or I'd have EVERYTHING!!! Still trying to decide what I should invest in next with my limited resources - deflect, the AB multi vitamin or the larch.
Breakfast was rice chex and soy milk with my vitamins. Lunch? Some of the spaghetti with the kids from the cafeteria......probably not too good for me and definitely not good for the bathing suit figure.....but I did avoid the corn they served as the vegetable. :-)
Made my husband so happy just now. Came home from an exhausting day of work and then 2 hours of school (only 2 more credits for him to go!!!) And I had 2 of the salmon sausages (stuffed with spinach & feta) just finishing up on the stove and organic (frozen) green beans simmering as a side. Both from Whole Foods and both delightful. He was so impressed and very grateful. I didn't find it a problem or a hardship. I hardly looked at either dish, they rather cook themselves. Just providing him with something BENEFICIAL as opposed to him grabbing a pizza or some Mc'y D's on the way home makes me feel all warm inside. Didn't have time to fix the rice. He's out to see a friend of ours at a band a Mulcahy's in Wantagh. I've been wanting to see them but an organized house makes me 10 times happier so I opted out. I find I'm a bit of a home body now that I'm married. Guess most of the excitement came from random flirtations which are a bit out of the question now :-) Besides, I have planning to do for the kids at school and that takes time. Gotta keep them entertained this summer. :-) And we stayed out ‘til VERY LATE last night socializing.
Last night we went out for 10cent wing night at Croxley's. (www.croxley.com - best pub Long Island has!!!) I sorely miss getting in on the good deal but don't feel that pull to the chicken anymore, even when they're in front of me. It was great fun. I throughly enjoyed my French onion soup and had some salad (Didn't cost 10 cents though!!!) Had my usual Belgian beer and then an "Irish Car Bomb" with the boys (Guinness and Bailey's - gets you TOASTED!). We were more than a little silly to say the least. I kept talking about how shiny the mahogany walls were and declaring my love for everyone around me. Best yet, our friend Steve FINALLY brought a "wing belt" for "the champ." Nice picture of it here (scroll down) http://126.96.36.199:8084/bolo/comments.php?eventID=46 and some smack talk as well.
Long story short, every so often our lanky, marathon running friend, Steve, must have a wing eating contest of gargantuan perportion with someone. Sad to say, he lost the last match 2 weeks ago by one lowly wing to our friend Gloria (aka: Globean), a Pre-K teacher like me. She wanted a champion belt so, we now have a WWF-like, plastic, gold wrestling belt. Gloria was absent sooooo, Steve was wearing it last night on his shoulder the whole time (that usurper!). He got several compliments actually, from the ladies. A very funny night. You all should have been there.
Going to finish organizing and fix up some collard greens and rice. Hope you all have a nice place you like to go and relax or just chill with friends. It's very important I think, for all of us to have one of those places to just get away from everything for awhile. (Yeah, we finally started making several Cheers references at Croxley's last night - funny we didn't see the similarities before.....guess we're just getting to that age of maturity and enjoying the release form the daily 9-5.......)
