That was today… and it can be me. :p
This morning, I looked at the forecast on Accuweather and thought that it seemed like it would be a bit warmer outside than the past couple of days. Listening to the weather forecast on the radio confirmed that. I decided not to listen to the forecasters and bundled up anyway… and I am so glad that I did, because it was damn cold.
Yeah, the weather is kind of unbearable, work is getting to be a drag, and I just really need a vacation. Can’t wait.
Romaine, rutabaga roasted with seasoned salt, Lightlife Smart Links, microwaved zucchini. I think I might like roasted rutabaga even better than roasted winter squash. Who ever would have thunk it?!
I tried this new bar today — I was so excited about finally being able to get my hands on it.
Strawberry Jamfrakas! It was sweet. Very, very sweet. I think I like the apple one better, but it’s good to know that from my own experience, at least!
I took a shorter lunch break at work so that I could leave early and make what is becoming a daily trip to Petco. This time I wound up with a bristle nose pleco… supposedly they don’t get as big as the others. I only wish it would live long enough to get any bigger!! The Death of the Day was the last Glofish… it was stuck in the filter pipe. Given my tendency to view my aquarium as a microcosm of my general world, things aren’t looking too great for me right now. (And by the way… I just looked in the aquarium because I wanted to point out the new pleco to my dad, and I can’t find it anywhere. Huh.)
After I left Petco (with the bag containing the fish zipped up inside my jacket so that the water shouldn’t get cold), I decided to go across the square to Whole Foods. Of course, they didn’t have what I was looking for, but…
Hmmm. I don’t know how that happened.
I had an appointment with my nutritionist tonight — not exactly fun, considering — and then I went to the supermarket. Where, by the way, they did not have the soy milk I wanted to take with me on my vacation. I figured I’d use almond milk instead; but those expire on January 16, and I wouldn’t use them all by then. So I thought I might as well just use vanilla Boost with my cereal and kill two birds with one stone… but guess what? No vanilla! Argh. Then as I was driving out of the supermarket parking lot, I got this weird feeling that I was going to hit / kill someone. I didn’t, obviously, or I wouldn’t be calmly sitting here and typing about it — but it was just really strange.
A surprise was waiting for me when I got home: my dad hung the thermal drapes over my bedroom windows! They actually look ridiculous, because they’re polka-dotted, and they didn’t look that way in the picture. But I don’t really care, as long as they get the job done and prevent me from freezing to death… though it is sort of claustrophobic not being able to see out of the windows.
My mind is too tired to verbally vomit right now, but it will formulate itself nicely while I sleep, I am sure. Better than the dream I had last night… you don’t even want to know. Trust me.
My memory of this is kind of fuzzy, but I think this was titled Expression II. It may have been around the time I broke up with my ex, and his initials are in there somewhere… oddly, I think mine are too. (Clearly, my brain is not functioning at the moment. Then again, does it ever?!)
Have a good Thursday!
