Woo hoo! I’m done for the week! I decided to take Friday off. I have the vaca time to do so, and I really need to use that day to get stuff done and well, quite frankly, sleep in. So that’s the plan. Here’s the rundown of the day.
My oats were so good last night that I had to recreate them this morning. This time I heated up the apple sauce first and put the oats on top of them, so they’d stay hot during my commute.
Look how pretty!
I think I would consider taking oats to work for breakfast more often if I didn’t get major anxiety all morning wondering if I turned the stove burner off before I left the apartment. I was 99% I did, but still worried about it until I got a chance to go home for lunch. I had to pick up all the food stuffs I’m taking to Thanksgiving plus my overnight bag. The house was still standing, but I forgot to look at the burner. Doh!
I ate lunch at work today – and I ate it in shifts. Before I left to go home, I had one lone sweet potato that hadn’t been eaten. I knew it had to be mine.
Along with a leftover roll.
Carbs much? Yeah, I love ‘em. Can’t help myself.
And on my way back to work, I picked up a salad. I was craving veggies like woah – but unfortunately the only place I could find to get some was Subway.
This salad was pretty good, but I wish there had been some more substantial greens up in there. Also, I normally get just vinegar for dressing but since there were like zero kcals to that salad I decided to get a creamy dressing to up the satiety level. Like my logic there?
The day dragged by, as I expected it to, but it wasn’t as torturous as it could have been. It was one of those days when everyone was chatty so I kept getting visitors to my office, which helped pass the time a bit.
I’m about to jet on over to my brother and SIL’s and we’re carpooling to my Dad’s house in Enid, Oklahoma. Don’t worry, I’ll get some cardio in tonight in the form of Extreme Guitar Hero. I take it very seriously – no sitting allowed. Apparently we’re having enchiladas for dinner, which sounds fab. There will most likely be quite a bit of alcohol consumed as well.
Tomorrow morning I will be making breakfast for everyone and then hopefully will cajole my SIL and maybe some others to go on a walk around my Dad’s neighborhood. I brought my sneaks just in case! Then the whole fam-dam-ily will arrive for Thanksgiving Dinner and I will get to showcase my pie-making skills.
THEN the bro, the SIL and I will head over to my Mom’s for dessert and movie watching. We’re going to have a separate dinner with my Mom next week, but we still wanted to spend some time with her on real Thanksgiving.
Lots of fun to be had, but I won’t be blogging again until it’s all over. I’ll be back Friday if not before.
Have an extremely Happy Thanksgiving if you are celebrating. I hope it is wonderful and relaxing and delicious And if you’re not celebrating, have a fabulous couple of days!
