Hi gang and Happy Friday! I am glad to see the end of this very long and tiring week, I can assure you. I’m also looking forward to a relaxing evening and weekend with my two boys.
This morning I woke up before my alarm went off to the sounds of some serious thunder and flashes of intense lightening. Oh my! I thought it probably would be best if I didn’t run in that. I did get up and get Rocky taken care of because it wasn’t raining yet. If I can avoid taking him out in a monsoon, I will gladly choose that option always.
He came back inside just as the major downpour started. After a brief discussion of options, returning to bed sounded the most appealing so that’s what we did. And I slept till after 9am. Holy cow! I’m bummed that I didn’t get a run in this morning but I also realize that my bod needed the rest after such an intense week. I was hungry when I came downstairs but due to the lateness of the morning only wanted something light to eat.
I chose a Kashi waffle with some PB and honey on top along with one of the best cups of coffee ever! I don’t know what Scott did but man the coffee this morning was fantastic. After breakfast I putzed around and also worked on yesterday’s dinner post. Eventually I got up to clean the house. I was feeling so lazy this morning! Must have been the extra sleeps.
11:30am came and went and a package we were waiting on did not arrive. It was coming via FedEx and around here FedEx sticks to a pretty strict schedule. 11:30am is the delivery time. The other delivery time is around 1pm. I decided to hold out that long to see if our package would arrive. I was bouncing up and down excited and have been looking forward to it for a while now.
After cleaning the house, I made us some lunch.
Smoothie! I can’t remember the exact measurements of the liquids today because I was using up the last of the juices.
- 1C water (I know that for sure)
- Unsweetened cranberry juice
- Lots of kale
- 2 carrots
- Frozen peaches
- Frozen pineapple
- Frozen blueberries
- Mixed greens
- Shredded zucchini
- Sunflower seeds
- Sliced almonds
- Flax corn chips
- Dollop of salsa
- Dollop of yogurt
I learned from the last time and only used a wee amount of salsa and yogurt. It was still a bit much though so I need to remember to pair it down even more. Lunch was perfect today! I stole a few bites of Scott’s shrimp enchiladas I picked up for him at WF and they were tasty. A bit heavy though, seemed like perhaps a lot of butter and some cream going on. A few small bites were plenty for me.
After lunch I could finally hit the shower and get dressed for the day. I ran Rocks out for a quickie walk. It was ridiculous outside. Like walking into a steam room, very hot/humid and steamy outside. Ick!
And at 1pm our package did arrive! The OHC HQ has another set of twins.
Oh yeah! Our first set was a pair of Macbooks which we bought in 2005. I have been waiting for this phone for ages! I hated my old phone which was a Palm Treo. It stank. Not user friendly, the battery would drain if I took a picture or tried to get online, and it cut out a lot. I’ve been due for an upgrade since January and knew I wanted an iPhone. I knew they were releasing a new version this year so I patiently (and not so patiently) waited for the annoucement. And now I’m off to play with my new toy!
