We made a grocery store run last night. I got a few kiwis and apricots to try. I looked up how to tell how ripe they are this morning and I think only one apricot is ready so I'll be having that today. They're so fuzzy . I'm slowly working in some fresh veg into our dinners. I got us some organic broc and asparagus (not sure it's organic, but whatever). I think I'll roast the asparagus with some oil & salt tonight. I forgot to defrost meat for tonight, oops. I need to get some sweet potato so I can start shifting out nightshades.
I love seeing our yearly savings at the bottom of our receipt. Using our Stop & Shop card, we've saved something like $500 so far this year. With deals, sales, and a coupon, we saved 30% off our trip yesterday. I don't know how much we're spending monthly now, but I think we're doing okay.
-My gums feel irritated this morning, even though I brushed with the brushing oil blend. Probably from food choices yesterday. I also think I burned my gums a little above my top two front teeth on dinner last night.
-Nothing ached yesterday until the evening, which may have been from the cake, or just from being the end of the day. That's progress, anyway. I elevated my legs and iced my knees a bit.
-I'm stretching before and after every cycling trip now, starting this morning. My stupid hamstrings do not want to be anything but tight.
-When I sleep taking Theanine Serene, I feel very well rested, but I'm still waking up periodically. Hopefully this will continue to improve throughout the week.
Hulky left for work late today. He is waiting for Chip to get out of work (he works 3rd shift) to take him to drop off the marriage license. Hulky's phone took a swim on Saturday, so I can't call him (Chip is replacing it since he shoved Hulky in), but apparently we can get our certificates immediately after the license is returned! I can start my name change process on the 26th, which I took off to travel up to NY for our lakehouse weekend with friends. I'll probably just do social security right now because the RMV trip is going to require $$ (license, title, registration). Hehee, I wonder what color my hair will be in the new picture.
My grandmother brought me a white gold ring with an aquamarine last weekend. I don't think there was any story attached to it (that's rare with her). It's only a little too big and unfortunately doesn't fit under my engagement ring, otherwise I'd wear it as a wedding band. She really wants me to visit soon (I want to visit before it gets cool out!) to talk about inheritance stuff =\. I think she really wanted to give me her wedding band, which would be amazing, but I really don't like wearing yellow gold. Her wedding band is very wide, so it definitely could not be worn with my engagement ring. Hulky is hoping we'll be able to get the rings by the time we (hopefully) have our bigger reception in a couple of years.
