So much to say / do, curtailed by laziness. That’s okay, right?
Let’s see. My arms have calmed down somewhat, and I happened to mention to my mom that I think I am going to go back to this dermatologist and tell her to fix my face. My mom looked at me with a very confused expression and asked what is wrong with my face. I had to explain that skin is supposed to be smooth and clear and dewy. But compare that to my dad, who, when I told him that the dermatologist said I had eczema, asked me if it was on my face. Seriously… my complexion isn’t that bad! Thank you, Daddy. I can always count on you to make me feel beautiful!
For no particular discernible reason, I checked the calendar before booking my vacation, and found that the day I was planning to leave is actually one of my nephew’s upsherin. Not that I think anyone actually cares whether or not I’m there… but still. So I called my brother to ask him what he’s planning to do for it and when, to see if I can work around it. And he doesn’t know, because it all depends on his nephew’s wedding, but they don’t know exactly when that is yet. I’m getting very frustrated, because it seems like every time I try to book a vacation, something like this happens. I guess it’s to be expected when I have so many nieces and nephews, but still. I checked the price of the package again tonight, and it went down; but for the previous week, it went up. Like, double. I think I am going to just miss it. And piss everyone off… argh. What to do?!
Some pictures, of course.
Oats soaked overnight in soy yogurt mixed with Truvia, and chocolate spread stirred in the next day.
Same thing, minus the chocolate spread, plus chocolate PB2. I wasn’t wildly impressed with it, but I’ll have to give it another chance. And in case you were wondering, “overnight oats” does not, and should not, translate well into “twenty-four-hour oats.”
Kashi Island Vanilla cereal (the crushed remnants from the bottom of the box are the best part!), banana, and unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze. Still trying to decide whether I like it or not!
Sugar-free cherry pie filling and the requisite stale graham cracker! I’m thinking that I might be slightly mentally unbalanced for liking this. Are there foods you prefer when they aren’t “fresh”?
Oh, and these are the Turtle Mountain flavors I picked up yesterday:
Coconut Milk Cookie Dough; Snickerdoodle! We actually didn’t end up trying the Snickerdoodle this week. But for the Cookie Dough…
Yeep. Well, to overstate the obvious: It tastes like coconut. I absolutely hate coconut. This smelled exactly like Passover macaroons. Not a fan. But if you like coconut, you’ll love this.
I just found out today that we’re having a total Cousin Invasion tomorrow… a whole slew of them are coming to town for a wedding. Most of them are leaving on Tuesday, but one of them will be here for the next week. This doesn’t exactly thrill the living daylights out of me… especially because it is this cousin. Wow. This should be fun. And by “fun,” I mean “extremely awkward and uncomfortable.”
But the really BIG news… I went to scour the mall again, out of sheer desperation, and … guess what? I bought boots! They’re not exactly what I was looking for, and they’re too big in the calf, but because of the style they don’t look too ridiculous, I don’t think. I don’t know whether I even care at this point, to be honest.
That’s enough yapping on my part, I believe. Especially since I still have yet to prepare for my presentation on Monday. The rest of my group wants to meet before class to go over it… smack in the middle of the day. What is up with these people?! Do they not have jobs?? How can they afford to pay for graduate school?! So of course, I’m left to be the impossibly difficult person who just can’t make it. Sigh.
Enjoy what’s left of your weekend!
