I blame this guy for last night’s shenanigans. He led to this:
As I was making yesterday’s veggie chili, I thought I would add a bit of beer to the chili to give it a little umph in the background. I pulled out a Corona to test. We’ve had them in the fridge forever and I wanted to see if it was skunky. It was on the verge of skunky. Scott said to try another one (we had three total in the fridge). I pulled one out and while it was better it was still about to be skunky. I didn’t want to put skunky beer into the chili so I left it and Scott walked off with one. :p The two sips that I had did it for me though and I very much wanted a cold beer.
After SF class, we were home and in jammies by 10pm. Woo! We started Tuesday’s Pens game and had a beer. It’s a new beer to us and it was sooooo good. I’m going to have to do a review on it. Along with the beers we munched on these:
On the left are chili garlic pumpkin seeds and on the right are maple cinnamon. I also made a wee plate of dried dates and apricots which I forgot to take a picture of. I had a few grabs from each bowl, three dates and three apricots. The beer made me cold though! By the time I went to bed at 11pm, I was freezing! Thank goodness for the electric blanket making the bed all toasty warm.
I was having a fitful night. I slept fine till about almost 6am. I kept debating with myself trying to figure out how to handle the morning. Our dentist app is at 11am which means we need to leave by 10:30. If I got up at my usual time, it would have been a very tight squeeze to do running + Rocky’s walk + getting ready. If I got up at 6am I might have been able to pull it off. But I went to bed late (it’s amazing how much an extra 1/2 hour makes) and wasn’t sure if I would be able to get up at 6am. I thought I was pondering this all before 6am. When I finally looked at my clock, I saw that it was 6:40 which is my normal wakeup time anyway. So I decided running was out.
And I’m incredibly cranky about the situation too. When I get into a flow or routine, and that routine gets interrupted it really throws my sense of well-being and balance off. Leaving me an irritated mess. I’m not sure why, but I really am not a go-with-the-flow type of person. I need structure! All of this is leading up to me having A DAY so far. Ever have one of those days when nothing seems to be working out? It’s not serious or major, but it just causes you to sigh and push on through because really what can you do? Right, so that’s my day. First not so great sleep, second no run, third very meh breakfast.
I had two kashi waffles with PB and a little bit of honey. I poured the creamer in my mug and was about to pour coffee when I remembered that I don’t drink coffee before my dentist appointments. I don’t want to have coffee breath and coffee sticks to my tongue even though I brush it very well. It usually takes several glasses of water and either gum or lunch to remove the coffee. Which is more than you needed to know, I understand. But so I don’t drink coffee before seeing the dentist. I also don’t eat anything that could cause little pieces to get stuck in my teeth, like granola for example. This led to the waffle and CS breakfast.
I ate one waffle plus a little more than 1/2 the second but not all of it and I drank all my CS. I showered and decided to at least cover up the bags under my eyes for the appointment. Normally I don’t wear makeup (and if you all are cool with that I will start inserting more pics of myself ) but figured I would just do a bit. It didn’t seem to be going on well and I feel like it’s too pale and I have pancake face.
However! The upside is I got to pull out one of my favorite sweatshirts today because it is so chilly and I have that on now. Also, the frost was so thick that it looked like everything was covered with ice this morning, which was very pretty. And had I not gotten up early, I never would have seen it. AND we are going to breakfast, hooray!
See you after my appointment!
