Today it occurred to me that it sounds like a very good idea for me to go away for a couple of days over spring break. I probably won’t, but it was just a random enticing thought. Such notions are made even more tempting on days like today, when I woke up at 4.36 for no reason at all. Hmmm.
I’ve complained about my co-worker before (the one who can’t speak English) … anyway, I think I’ve mentioned that she’s going “home” for a month and is passing a portion of her work on to me. Frankly, it’s not rocket science. She told me once what to do. I get it. It’s not that difficult. And she is being a total micro-manager about it. She isn’t leaving for another week, and I’m positive that she’ll be asking me several times a day whether I did this / that / the other. It is driving me insane. How do you handle micro-managers like that?!
It actually made for quite a lovely combination. The lighting is horrible — I promise I don’t drink blue almond milk!
And, flagrantly flaunting my rule (okay, anorexia’s rule) not to eat the same thing twice in one day, I repeated the “frosted” muffin topper, but this time with peanut butter instead of Barney butter.
I think I preferred the almond butter. Probably because it was smooth!
Looks perfectly innocuous, right? But turn it over…
August 9, 2009!! I bought this two weeks ago! Naturally, I ate it anyway. It tasted fine. I think that the slightly different flavor was completely in my head, and if I hadn’t known that it was “expired,” it would have tasted exactly the same as it always does. Which is nice and cinnamon-y.
I’ve been lax in alliterating recently, haven’t I?
Roasted rutbaga rounds! Well, really most of them were half-circles because it’s easier to cut that way, but I won’t tell if you won’t tell. I tossed the rutabaga with seasoned salt — way too much seasoned salt! And if I’m saying something has too much salt, trust me, it does. With broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, sugar snap peas and water chestnuts tossed with garlic salt; and tofu steak. I wasn’t crazy about this flavor, but maybe that’s because I would have liked it crispier and should have left it in the oven a bit longer.
We had a cleaning woman here today; we don’t usually have one but before Pesach we do. She cleaned the bathroom. I hate it when we have someone else clean the bathroom; she will inevitably re-arrange everything in size order, and that is annoying because previously it was arranged in a practical manner. As in, I use this more frequently so I will put it in the front. Oh, well. At least the bathroom is clean, I guess?
I had to read two really long articles this week, and I just didn’t feel like it. I started to read the first one, and then I checked to see what this week’s discussion topic is. After reading that, I decided that I wasn’t going to read the articles after all. I gave my opinion on an issue without reading the articles. That takes either talent or stupidity, I’m not quite sure which!
Thankfully, I didn’t enter my therapy session today in hysterics, because I would have felt extremely silly if I had done that! I showed my therapist the letter from the insurance company, and she told me not to worry about it because she was “taking care of it.” You know me — I wouldn’t settle for that and had to know what that means! Apparently, my insurance company is merging with another one, and my therapist is planning to join their provider network, so I’ll still be covered. I don’t see the difference from her end, but whatever, at least I don’t have to worry about this now. That’s one huge load off my shoulders.
Have a great weekend!
