"Would you say it's a bit nipply here in Minnesota today?"
"Just a titty bit...."
Luckily I was at work all night where the lovely radiation from lights, computers, and body heat of people keep the pharmacy nice and toasty.
That, and seeing an old flame drop by my consultation window, yes, perhaps that kept me a bit flushed, too (you know who you are, haha). It was quite the surprise when you haven't seen someone in over a year.
So this has been an INTERESTING week for me in many ways. My friend Cat, mentioned in the previous blog, who came back into town to visit her family and me is my guardian angel and I am hers. She helped me organize my place. It looks so nice now! It's just my job to keep going with the organizational process. She gave me a great CD on which she did some back-up vocals and cello. Check out Chad Hinman (www.chadhinman.com). His music is considered alt country. It's mellow and deep. Great for rainy cold days when you just want to cuddle up to your honey.
We went to IKEA, too! It's unavoidable....that big blue box in the sky.....calls your name at night in your dreams...
"Erika, your place is a big fat mess. You need me. You need my cheap Eurotrash furniture designs. Make your pilgrimmage today."
So let's talk about food. Ate horribly for my blood type all weekend long as I was at a Forced Family Fun get-together. Whether it be Pizza Hut thin crust pizza, rhubarb pie, or Kentucky Fried Chicken, things were bleak for my poor, poor gut. I did manage to eat some things that were good though, such as watermelon and carrots. And salad. And drank red wine.
The babies were fairly well-behaved. Once is 22 months and one is two months. The third didn't make it to town as her parents didn't. The two month old is a darling. Rarely cried! If I had a kid like that, I'd be in heaven. Knowing my luck, if I have a baby, it'll be a colicky screamer.
If there is any reason why I DON'T want kids, it's because, I LOVE and I NEED LOTS OF SLEEP! I don't know how people function without it. I don't know how I functioned without it during school.
All I know is that when I got to bed at one am with Cat and then had to wake her up and take her butt to the airport at 4am this morning, I came right back home and slept till 11 am!!!
Later, went to the Wedge co-op. Had some gluten-free shortbread along with a shot of wheatgrass and a soy latte with maple syrup. Somehow that combination treated me well today at work. I was really on top of things, didn't feel overwhelmed.
Later, came back home, ate some "Mom's Walnut loaf" (from Wedge) and am about to have the mint pilaf rice. And there you have it, folks, one day in the life of Erika Klus.
Oh yes, something else...took Cat to Noodles and Company yesterday. I had the tofu pad thai minus cabbage. Yum.
