The weekend is over… sad! Especially since I have that presentation tomorrow to anticipate. Or not. At least it’s a short week — I’m thankful for that!
Last week, my brother donated blood and got a free meal coupon, which he gave to me, because nobody in my family really likes that deli and they do sell sushi, which I’d never tried. The whole point of this coupon was rendered moot when it turned out that it was worth more than a roll of sushi, so I wound up buying my brother a turkey wrap too, which basically meant… that I bought a roll of sushi. But whatever. I haven’t had sushi in ages.
This is how I take my sushi. No fish, no sesame seeds, no avocado. Basically, vegetables in nori and rice. :p
And today I broke into the first container in my hommus pile…
I hadn’t had this variety in a long, long time either!
In a wrap with sprouts… which is generally the only way I use it, but considering the tower of hommus in my refrigerator, I think I am going to have to get a bit more creative before they all expire!
Spaghetti squash (I always forget how much I love it) and a “sauce” made with cubed tofu simmered in sauteed eggplant and water. (“Simmered” is such a weird-sounding word, isn’t it?!)
After the whole boot saga, I was left with a pair of brown boots, so today I went in search of a brown jacket. I didn’t get one. Instead, I wound up with this.
I will excuse the ridiculous “pose” by explaining that I was standing on the toilet seat to fit my entire torso in the mirror. :p I have wanted a jacket like that forever… and it was so ridiculously inexpensive that I couldn’t not buy it. That would be because it isn’t actually leather… and, consequently, not very warm at all, which means I won’t even be able to wear it much for the next few months! But, you know, I have all the money in the world to throw around. Inflect extreme sarcasm here, because…
I booked a vacation.
As dictated by my paranoia, I’m not going to say where. But I asked my brother today if they’ve decided anything yet… and he started telling me that maybe they’ll do something a week later, maybe the night before, maybe maybe maybe! It is ridiculous. I can’t revolve everything around everyone else; no matter what I do, someone will be displeased. So I just booked; and I can only hope that I don’t miss my nephew’s upsherin. Massive amounts of self-talk going on here, because every time I go on a vacation, or spend “too much” money on myself, Guilt becomes a houseguest of mine. And as we all know by now, my houseguests? … They tend to stick around and totally outstay their welcome.
Plus, my nutritionist is not very pleased about this, because she claims I always lose weight when I go on vacation. She says she’s not letting me go. But she said that last time… and if I don’t get away, I will go stir-crazy and completely insane, and that wouldn’t be very good, now, would it?!
It sounds ridiculous, but I have found this entire process to be extremely stressful! So I am going to burrow in my cousin-free corner and think about sleep.
Have a great start to your week!
