I wanted to address some issues re: my last post, but it is late now and bed seems very appealing, so I will hopefully get to that tomorrow. I just got back from my nutritionist appointment (verbal vomit at the end), and most of this post was composed beforehand. So…
Guess what I tried this morning!
I really liked it! Then again, I really like the regular Heart to Heart, too… but I would have liked a stronger cinnamon flavor to differentiate this from the original.
Mr. J came back today; I thought he wasn’t going to return until the end of the week! Boo. I was looking forward to eating my salad in peace, but I guess it was not meant to be.
Romaine, roasted Brussels sprouts, chick’n strips, roasted rutabaga.
Pumpkin bran muffin spread with Barney butter and microwaved… and yes, I bought myself a microwave-safe plate! I keep these muffins in the refrigerator, and so even after I microwaved it for twenty seconds, the Barney butter was deliciously melty but the inside was still cool and crumbly. It actually scared me how much I loved it. Crazy.
I took a pretty picture today in celebration of the fact that winter is no longer my bosom buddy. However, my computer ate every single picture on my memory card — there were about 500, because I was trying to hold off on uploading them until right before my vacation. I freaked out. My mom was all, “A computer genius like you should be able to find them again!” Um. I am a techno-dummy, as has been established here multiple times in the past… though I guess I’m not, in comparison to her! After she said it three times, I asked her to stop since it was just making me nervous, and I called my sister to ask if I would ever be able to get them back. She said there was a way, but that she wasn’t sure how to do it, and that I should call my brother. He didn’t answer his phone, so I left him a message, and then I consulted Master Google. Long story short — I got them back!! But they’re on one of my other laptops uploading to Winkflash, so take my word for it that it was a pretty picture and maybe I’ll show you tomorrow. 😉 Coincidentally, the folders are all screwed up on my card now. Wonder what that’s all about…
And on a totally unrelated note, I finally got my eyebrows threaded. I’m actually very pleased — she did an awesome job! I don’t think they’ve ever looked this good before. (Sorry — that sounded conceited!!)
The abovementioned appointment with my nutritionist was the first one since before Pesach… and I was really scared. For good reason, as it turns out. I don’t really have the time or energy to go into all the details (lucky you!), but I was there for over an hour (appointments are usually a half hour long). I went to the supermarket afterwards, as always. They did not have a single rutabaga, and they had a crazy scale at the registers that rang up the price for a single banana, at $.59 / lb., as $1.35. But…
Due partly to this, the calories I am now supposed to be consuming are nearly double that of what I already was. I am scared shitless. Words cannot even describe it. But I am sick of my life. I can’t say any more than that right now… the hour is too late.
I wanted to at least pay tribute to the fact that today is Yom HaShoah — Holocaust Remembrance Day. I am actually named after someone who died in the Holocaust, and my generation is probably the last one that will ever personally know survivors. I’m not generally a mushy / sentimental person, but I felt that I should at least acknowledge that.
Enjoy your Tuesday.
