Wow, so I’d forgotten how much time there is in a day when you have no one to answer to/worry about/ or do things with other than yourself! Chase was working all day today (8am-10pm) and by golly did I get a lot done!
I crawled out of bed at about 9 am and couldn’t figure out what I wanted for breakfast. Fall-back breakfast: Weetabix(!), toasted walnuts, dried cherries, banana. Oh and a side of unsweetened cranberry juice for my UTI. Whoa is this stuff tart! I kind of love it.
While I ate my breakfast I managed to have a leak in my lip that ended up with me getting cranberry juice on my brand new keyboard! O.O NOOOOO. I rushed it to the kitchen to try and clean it up as best I could. Panicking, I managed to drop the keyboard on my wrist…
Yes, that’s a giant bruise. It hurt so bad I had to ice it. =( I am a klutz.
With all day to myself I got shit done: wrote yesterday’s blog post, paid bills, did a little online shopping, cleaned shower, cleaned kitchen, tidied up bedroom, did all the laundry (three loads!), 1 hour 30 minute hill stationary bike ride, and even gave the kittens a good combing.
By 1pm I was ready for a cold lunch because I was sweating away! I made a really delicious smoothie containing: 1/2 cup cranberry juice, 2 spoonfuls of Greek yogurt, 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, 1/2 cup frozen Antioxidant Berry Blend, and a squirt of honey. Yummy!! With it i had two graham crackers and a little cup of NatureBox Guacamole Bites (corn sticks with awesome flavoring). It was perfect! I always need a little texture with my smoothie…
The rest of my day was spent with this handsome man..
And this little girl who refused photographs today, working on my cross stitch. Around 3 o’clock I had a few more graham crackers but overall the lunch held me over well!
I did need dinner a bit early though around 5:30pm. I made scrambled eggs with a pinch of shredded cheese and mixed with the parsley pesto vegetables I made yesterday. With a side of toast and a few amazing tomatoes. It made my mouth very happy!
Just before starting this blog post I had a snack of graham crackers (with a little unpictured crunchy peanut butter) and a glass of milk so I could take my pills. Still have over an hour until Chase comes home!!! Guess it’s back to the cross stitch…
