My day so far:

  • woke up at 6:30

  • coffee

  • fed animals

  • cleaned up mess of teens up late (and mess of husband who is a mess-maker)

  • checked email

  • Breakfast smoothie (omg, it's so good: egg-based protein powder, 1/2 C OJ, 1 C water, handful of spinach, small banana. It takes like a Dreamsicle! Esp. without the banana, but why ignore a banana?)

  • made bed/straightened bathroom and bedroom

  • went on 5 mile jog with turned into the last as a power walk because it's HOT

  • came home, stripped, slipped on bathing suit and flopped into pool

  • realized I was aimlessly swimming laps for 20 min and chilled the hell out

  • dried off

  • got in my day's push up count

  • put on gardening togs

  • finished the last weeding in the big side bed (45 minutes of me, a pitchfork and a wheelbarrow. And the sun, oy.)

  • realized I smelled like a horse's taint

  • showered for a million hours (no, I didn't)

  • got kids on their chores/school work (the Boy is in summer school to make up for lost days)

and now I'm looking at my pantry and wondering if I can just shove it all in, boxes, wrapping and all?

TODAY'S FANCY SANDWICH: 10 grain bread, a layer of this amazing English-Style aged cheddar, slices of tomato, spinach leaves, a touch of garlic salt and fresh thyme. GOOEY. CHEESY. IN MY MOUTH. Mmmmmmm. I think I should have two...

Thank you to everyone that responded to my poll yesterday, btw. It's a relief to see that the vast majority felt that gifts are no longer a "free for all." :) Personal property is just that, imo, and my children are moving towards adulthood and should be treated with the same respect I would another adult. <3

Great googlymoogly, just reading this makes me tired.

Ugh, and I still have to go to the pet food store, Target to replace a busted French press, take #2 to a dr.s appointment, get gas, figure out dinner and make said dinner...

HAHAHA, good point! Stupid healthy brats... (Hee)

I like your polls. Gives me an insight to your brain. Mmmm brains.

I like making polls! I especially like making ridiculous ones. :D

I like to stare at this site and then get all inspired and shit.


This is what I'm making today because I have fresh asparagus. DELICIOUS.

Holy smokes, that site was made for me - to drool on. O_O SO. HUNGRY NOW.

If you like asparagus, the sandwich amazoballs. I'm sure that's a word.

It is muggy and hot here, too! I wish I had a pool to mindlessly do laps in for the next several months!

Cooking and cleaning up after your family makes me tired just thinking about. I have all sorts of things to cook, but this heat is making me want nothing to do with the stove. Too bad the mister is not a salad kinda guy.

Bought Book of Mormon tickets this AM! Yay to having something to look forward to in October! Months and months of eager anticipation will keep a smile on my face. Well, a margarita and some nachos would keep a smile on my face, too.

Cooking and cleaning up after people is going to be something I do not miss when the kids move on. THIS I PROMISE. I'm so freaking worn out right now...

BoM tickets!! Oh, they weren't on sale for DFW when I looked yesterday, so this is a good reminder to check that out - and make nachos.

Gadzooks, you are like the Energizer Bunny. I'm almost ashamed at how much I lay about. Almost. It's that "horse's taint" smell, I try to avoid it if I can. ;)
Jun. 13th, 2013 09:29 pm (UTC)
Hahha, see, lying about results in NO horse's taint odor! You're a step ahead of me!

NOT ALL THE CHILDREN!! There's a rotten punk in my neighborhood that deserves a fat lip. BUT ALL THE OTHER CHILDREN!

This whole list makes me feel exhausted, but it also underlines the differences between the way we're living.

You: huge amount of work in a very hot place with pool and enough land to actually spent time gardening.

Me: Busing myself all over town in to discover I have expensive cavities and to volunteer on film preservation, with no pool or garden, but with good dim sum in a place where we think that 70 degrees is hot.

The United States is vast. :)

The whole list made me exhausted, too! :D

OMG, 70 degrees being hot, WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?! (Then again, upper 30s is FREEZING to me - and I lived in Wyoming! Which is why anything below 40 is evil. Hah.)

Mmmm, dim sum. I could go for some awesome dim sum today, in fact...

Every time you give us a sammich recipe, I write it down, 'cause that shit is goooooood.

Gurl, there's a link to a grilled cheese website in the comments here, and it has AMAZING THINGS THERE.

Your icon, OMG, you are so my favorite.
Jun. 14th, 2013 09:42 pm (UTC)
sounds like a productive day and a tasty sandwich!

I'll collapse from just reading that, OK? :-P Damn, you rock.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
