i kind of want to scream.
at the top of my lungs, as loud as i can.
not into a pillow or anything.. maybe somewhere that will be extra echo-ey and the scream can go on and on and on.
that would feel good.
i don’t have an echo-ey place to go scream.. but i do have a blog. and, believe it or not, rambling on my little space on the internet really lifts my spirits! sorry if my negative whining brought yours down. let’s cheer up!
guess what? i had cereal again this morning.
it’s like an abusive relationship. it doesn’t satisfy me yet i keep going back for more. at least this morning’s bowl had a little extra oomph..
some stonyfield’s plain yogurt. and trader joe’s blueberry muesli (so good, you should try it!)
this did the trick in filling me up. it’s a good thing, too, because lunch didn’t happen. i had no food at work. and no time to go grab anything. i actually couldn’t leave the office because i had to wait for someone to bring something in. i was a prisoner. that’s what i get for thinking, “i won’t pack a lunch today, it is friday.. i will grab a sandwich from my favorite deli!” haha. yeah, right. that didn’t happen!
what did happen, around 12:45, was this:
*angels singing* good thing my awesome co-worker brought some homemade zucchini bread today! and good thing she gave me a slice! and it was so rad that i had to make a ridiculous sign about it!
it was heavenly.
but, sadly, i was still hungry.
i finally got to leave the office at 2:30. i had to run a super important errand and THEN, at THREE O’CLOCK, i was able to hit up sunflower market. i wanted to buy the whole grocery store! i refrained. i picked up a few items (tofu, chobani, larabars, more cereal, laughing cow blue cheese(!!), apples) and immediately upon hopping back in my car, i literally inhaled this..
it was so tiny! (TWSS) it took no more than 45 seconds to eat. and then it was gone.
i did, however, have time to muster up a few thoughts on the new-to-me flavor of larabar. it was tasty! but it also was supposed to taste like carrot cake. carrot cake it was not. it was way too fruity. it could have used some sort of spice element in there.. the pineapple flavor was STRONG. it actually hurt my tongue (i have geographic tongue) but not enough to stop me from eating it. don’t get me wrong, it was delicious, but i didn’t bite into it and think “carrot cake” the same way i think “coconut cream pie” when i bite into the coconut cream pie larabar. kapeesh? moving on.
when i got back to the office i was able to sit down at my desk with some food.. (look at all that paperwork.. grumble..)
and then 30 minutes later, after a brief meeting with the boss, i was actually able to EAT the food.
lentil salad: lentils, green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, parsley, olive oil, pomace oil, red wine vinegar, chili powder, granulated garlic, black pepper, paprika, salt & lemon juice.
it was good! i just wish i’d had 3 times this amount ;)
hydration with a side of husband.
i was at the office 2 hours later than i anticipated to be. sad. i hate working late any day of the week, but working late on fridays is the absolute worst. geez, i am a complainer today!
when i finally made it home, i collapsed on my bed with my favorite furry friends :)
penny does this thing. we call it “face laying”.. if marshall’s beard was as soft as penny’s fur, i’d never ask him to shave.
truth be told, i had a really thought out, deep flashback friday post planned for today. but after such a hellish week at work, topped off with the worst friday in a long time.. i decided to just get silly and post some old photos that i love. i will save the elaborate flashback post for next week.
i have a LOT of photos on my hard drive. like.. thousands. consider this a small handful. enjoy!
mable & mimosas in flaming gorge. camping. i miss mable! she is gnawing on her football.
story: once upon a time i met slug from atmosphere. we kissed. the end.
while in europe in 2007, we visited the sex museum in amsterdam..
apparently i also ate a caprese sandwich in amsterdam. i bet i loved it. i know i loved the side braid.
i dog-sat a pomeranian for 3 months. her name was punkin. she was an alcoholic.
this was me. in a shark. on the boardwalk in santa cruz.
in yellowstone. in the back of a truck. riding to go float the river. i love it. it was bright.
we used to have friends who lived in a cabin. hanging out at that cabin was probably the most fun ever.
last but not least, it pains me to post this and admit i used to go to LOTS of raves.. but i just HAD to. my old friend, jenny, just started reading my blog (hi jenny!).. and i came across this one of us. i couldn’t resist. you are allowed to laugh. circa 2000. ten years ago, people.
congrats melissa! send me your mailing info and oh nuts! will get those movie tickets in to you :)
my poor marshall is still at work. as soon as he gets home we are going to eat somewhere delicious for dinner. no idea where, but i think i need some tasty dinner served to me. and i definitely am designating today as my day off from exercise. there, i said it.
hope everyone has a great weekend!
1. what is your favorite way to blow off steam or stress? running always helps me feel better. then again.. so does eating cereal. and ice cream. together ;)
2. have you tried the new larabar flavors? thoughts?
