Man, it’s chillllllllly here. The snow is not going to melt any time soon they say as the temperature is only just above freezing for the next few days
Gotta tell you - I’m in a bit of a funk. I can’t explain why exactly (except the first holiday without my dad/losing my doggie thing). I was so tired of living out of a suitcase I haven’t been to NJ since Monday. I have barely left my apartment since then.
This is why I can not work from home exclusively. I totally become a recluse.
I dragged myself out to the gym yesterday – watched Top Chef while incline walking. It always makes me want to cook. As a result I have bread dough rising in the kitchen.
I really need to mop that floor. It’s now not even an option to wait.
I am all over the place today – forgive me.
I still have the minimal Christmas decorations up and packing them away is on my agenda this morning. I’m going to work a webcast from home (it starts in about 20 min) and then head to the office to the studio for the rest of the afternoon. I think it’s time I change out of pajamas, sweats and/or gym clothes.
I’m meeting the girls for a drink this evening. I’m hoping to walk to/from work and that’ll cover my exercise for the day.
I was Snacky McSnackerson all day yesterday. I can’t explain exactly why (again other than the obvious) but I kept walking back and forth to my kitchen.
Living in a studio apartment is dangerous. I can’t just go upstairs or into another room. My kitchen is RIGHT THERE all the time.
It’s a little bit of a problem.
I had some cheddar cheese, a hot pretzel, a handful or four of peanuts and ended with two TJ Mint Mini Mouthfuls for dessert.
Last night – after the gym I threw together a semi homemade feast.
Not semi homemade like a Kwanzaa cake.
I mean – I have no words for that thing but I can tell you from personal experience that Sandra Lee is a perfectly lovely person who has had a tough road to Angel Food Cake/Apple Pie Filling stardom. Jen and I met her at the NYC Wine and Food Festival 2 years ago and she could not have been more gracious.
Anyway this has nothing to do with my dinner last night which was TJ’s Asparagus Risotto + 4 shrimp + tomatoes, basil and garlic and a little parmesan cheese.
That’s the closest you’ll ever see me get to eating something that looks like oatmeal. I’m on a rice kick lately. I still have at least 1 possibly 2 servings of my Mexican Rice thing to take to work for lunch. I ate it for lunch yesterday too.
I don’t have much else to say today as I said I feel really blah. Hopefully getting out in the sunshine and amongst other people will improve my mood.
I’m really looking forward to the weekend. My tentative schedule is as follows:
Friday – with Dave either in NYC or in NJ where we will go to karaoke and I can finally prove to him I can actually sing as he doesn’t quite believe me even though when we first met I invited him to hear me perform at Carnegie Hall.
Sheesh. I mean do I need to perform in Madison Square Garden before he gets it?? :)
Saturday – Zumba, Museums and/or movies in the big city.
Sunday – Brunch with Mom, Jen and Dave.
And with that – I’m off. Have a great day.
