Last night I came home from Rowlates around the same time that Matt was finishing his run. Neither of us were in a cooking kind of mood so we played a little game of “What can we scrounge together to make a meal?”. The result: Caesar salad (for the 4th time this week) with salmon (2nd salmon serving of the day) and vaca frita nachos with salsa and avocado.
Random but satisfying. However, I do not want to eat Caesar salad for a month.
The rest of the evening was spent editing down a 2000 word essay to 400 words. Oops. Next time I will read the instructions little more clearly. After tossing 4/5 of my hard work to the curb, I did a little iTunes shopping with my gift card.
My Rowlates/spin instructor has been blasting Robyn so I decided to add Call Your Girlfriend to my running playlist (which currently consists of Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris on repeat). Robyn and I go way back to her Show Me Love single days. I am pretty sure there is a video out there of me and my friends doing a choreographed dance to Show Me Love as it blasts out of a boom box, too…most likely followed by a Spice Girls encore of Wannabe. Eek. I could not think of another song that I wanted to buy. When I am away from iTunes I can think of millions of songs I must buy, but when I am sitting there with my gift card ready, I go blank. At this rate I am going, this $25 gift card is going to last me 2 years.
After some laundry (story of my life), I crawled into bed to watch Modern Family. I was asleep about 10 minutes after it ended. Asleep before 10?! Yes please!
This morning I could barley roll over to turn off the alarm. Not because I was tired but because every muscle below my armpit is sore. I guess that’s what I get from running, PiYo and Rowlates jammed into 24 hours. Damn you bowler lunges!
This morning while packing my lunch I decided I really wanted a baked potato. I had never made a baked potato in the microwave but figured I’d give it a go now that our office microwave is back in action. So lunchtime came around and I jabbed it with a fork a few times and plopped it in the microwave for 6 minutes, flipped it, 6 more minutes, cut it open, spread a Laughing Cow wedge and Colby jack, 45 more seconds, done. This would have gone a lot better if we had more than one microwave for the office so that I didn’t have to let people use the microwave in between each step. Grr. Oh well, I ended up with a feast:
…and only ate the potato. I guess my eyes were bigger than my stomach
like always this morning.
Baked potato: yay or nay? toppings?
Usually I am all about sour cream and cheese but the Laughing Cow wedge was a nice substitution!
Last song you downloaded?
What were you listening to in 1997?
Third Eye Blind, Jewel and Alanis were on repeat on my boom box.
