Ecks, thank you! It was much better today. Right now, with the work stress, I'm just going to have to take it one day at a time and do the thing I have advised others to do. Speak up for myself.
So, yesterday was just a bad day, up until dinner time. The bike wheels, my crappy day at work and cracking under stress, and then just being an all around bum until someone decided to join me and the kid for dinner last night. Honestly, I love love love my kid, but it's nice to have an adult to listen to my gripes and empathize. I could have gotten the same thing in my Single Mom's group that meets on Wed nights, but it was nice for him to come over and ask me what happened. Thankfully Gabi wasn't too harsh (she's like my little guard dog sometimes). It was just nice to have him over really. Oh, I forgot to mention the wheel thieves took our lights! Not that I can night ride anytime soon because I have no wheels, but come on, seriously with that?
Today was so much better than yesterday. Work was better, even though I was still a little on edge. I don't know, I still feel like I'm living in this surreal moment. We'll see what happens tomorrow. It was just much better today. Afterwards, I went to the Hope Fest Banquet where Anita Renfroe was our guest speaker. Oh, I almost peed my pants from laughing so hard! She's so funny and just blunt. I loved every minute of it.
IF'd till lunch
L: Leftover bbq pork shoulder roast, sausage, almonds (with a tad bit of almond oil, sea salt, and herbs de provence), 1/2 cup of walnuts
S: Two of mom's chocolates (phew, I think I remember why I don't eat caramel often, it's too sweet!)
D: Lemony Scallop Piccata (same as the chicken one, just cooked with scallops) 1 cup green beans, Mixed salad with homemade dressing (supposedly someone outside my family thinks it's pretty awesome stuff)
Drinks: Water, mostly. Two shots of Amaretto and two glasses of wine. Yes, I know I screwed up with that, but I really just wanted a little something to drink last night.
B: I think about 4 pcs bacon, 1/2 cup brisket
S: Cup mixed berries with 1/2 cup walnuts
L: Salad greens with chicken grape walnut salad and some other salad with artichokes.
S: Leftover Pamela's Gluten Free (soy free too!) pancake
D: Salad with 1 tbsp (roughly) ranch dressing (at least that's what it looked like, still a bad choice), some sort of green bean dish that was really good and loaded with veggies, I think broiled chicken (that was pretty good too)
S: 3 tbsps home mixed chocolate almond butter (I took the regular stuff and mixed in some Natural Grocers chocolate powder and some Agave Nectar)
Drinks: Mostly water, but about 12 oz iced tea, unsweetened
Well, this day is way past due to be over. Tomorrow night, sleepover for the kid. G'night everyone, have a blessed and hopefully peaceful evening.
