  • I often feel the same way - want to get away from it all... but then I remember that once the vacation is over, I'll have to come back to it all, so what's the point in leaving for a while? Now... if I could go on vacation and come home to a spotless house (that someone else worked on) and all the bills paid and stressors gone for good, then I'd consider spending a ton of money on a vacation (and to me, even $300 is a ton of money).

    • For me, the ability to tell everything else in my life to fuck off for even a weekend is huge. It's not the running away from my problems that entices me. It's being able to drop them for a little while and being able to come back with a sunburn and a clear head, the better to tackle the problems.

      • I tried a coconut oil scalp massage/ soak last night, in the hopes that the dandruff West Texas (not West, Texas) has given me goes away. It definitely felt good. I didn't get it all out in the shower, so parts of my hair are greasy. Making the most of having hair that'll do what it's told, I created a multispiral bun. (No clue what you actually call it. You pull it all into a ponytail and section it off into chunks roughly 1/3" think. with each chunk, you twist it and then wind it around the ponytail/ preceding spiral and bobby pin it in place.)

        • Multispiral bun sounds cute. One thing I miss about having longer hair is "teddy bear" buns. Basically just two small buns at the top back "points" (either side of the crown area, I guess) of your head. I think this would be beyond adorable with pink hair, but my hair has to be past shoulder length to really pull it off (get most of the hair up in the buns) and I'm not patient enough to grow my hair out for that long.

          • It's finally Friday. I'm feeling pretty fried. This week has taken it out of me. I look forward to sleeping in tomorrow and not having to go in on a weekend.
            I'm also really looking forward to our ren faire weekend next week. I've needed a vacation for a while. (Yes, I'm counting Friday as a straight up vacation day to do whatever the hell we please, no schedule and whatever my schedule my parents try to set can go to hell.) I also get to meet my sister's new boyfriend (I guess after a few months, it's no longer boytoy) and they're coming with us to the faire, as well as a few friends.
            Nameless, I've done the teddy bear buns before, but only for an anime inspired costume. I should do it again one of these days.

            • Hurray for Ren Faire! I had a sucky week as well, so I feel your pain. Get some rest.

              • Shit. I've been being a bit too lax on PB, it seems. The scale claims 130. Back on board I go.

                • I've been waffling on it for several days, but I think I'll give a Whole30 another shot. I need to walk that line carefully, because last time it threatened my mental stability, which is a delicate balance to begin with.

                  • First meal of the Whole30: beef and spinach tamagoyaki. WTF is a tamagoyaki? A Japanese omelet, usually paper thin and folded a million times. The spinach one is different: get the spinach hot, add the meat, and the egg mixture (egg, fish sauce, and sriracha, garlic if I'd had time to chop it up) is poured over the top and then kinda scooped back into the pile when it runs every which way across the pan.

                        • Dinner was a steak salad with herb de provence dressing and an apple.

                          • I failed my last W30 in January because it was messing with my mind too! I started again yesterday, but I'm not tracking any macro's and not limiting any of the allowed food groups (fruits, nuts, starchy vegetables,...). Stress reduction is nr. 1 on my list, I didn't even weigh or measure before starting!

                            Good luck!

                            • If it's allowed, there's no limit. Macros area guideline, but my body tends to macro and calorie balance across several days.

                              • I also had sausage (safe) and freeze dried blueberries last night.
                                Today is the all- important jack off meeting, where all the higher tier personnel get together and blamestorm, I mean schedule, how the week and projects are gonna go. It's also a different person's turn to pick where lunch is from each week. Given how many times I've seen fried chicken, sandwiches, pizza, and lousy hamburgers come through that door, I've started taking my bento jar for these meetings, because I don't trust any of these assholes to pick something edible (yes, even when I've let the main people know I can't eat wheat or cottonseed oil.)
