Silence is (ful)filling
Friday, October 02, 2015      2 comments

My in-laws like to eat American food when they visit, since they never have it at home. Last night we made a quintessentially American meal of burgers and tater tots for dinner, and the in-laws loved it. The hub doctored and seasoned the groun... Read more
Priorities

Yesterday I felt so awful that I stayed home from work. I had Nyquil for breakfast and slept until 3 pm, then dragged myself out of bed to eat something and went to see the kid's soccer game. I'm not sure whether that was an example of insanit... Read more
Not the best way to lose weight

My cough has progressed to something a bit worse - I ... involuntarily expelled partially digested food several times tonight. My stomach doesn't feel good, but I don't think it's a stomach bug so much as I am coughing so much that it's making ... Read more
Feed a cold
Tuesday, September 29, 2015      3 comments

The kid succeeded admirably in germing me good. She's so proud. My throat feels like it's trying to claw its way out of my body. And yet I have this compulsion to keep throwing food down it. Being sick is illogical! The kid doesn't get ... Read more
Once more unto the breach

My poor jet-lagged in-laws are sleeping in. We had a great day together yesterday. We woke up early and caught our college kid playing at a tournament - just the first game since it took nearly 2 hours, and just standing on the field we were t... Read more
More smaller
Sunday, September 27, 2015      5 comments

The in-laws arrived safely yesterday, bringing with them three suitcases: 2 completely full of food from the hub's home country, and 1 with clothes. Apparently Christmas treats have already filled the stores at home, so they brought with them ... Read more
TGIF
Saturday, September 26, 2015      7 comments

Well, technically it's Saturday now. Work is so stressful these days that I start counting down to the next weekend already when Monday starts! Our kid has a cold. She's sniffly and drippy and sneezy and congested. So what does she do? ... Read more
Trial and error
Friday, September 25, 2015      6 comments

I plan my meals, so they are balanced and healthy and keep me on target - unless we go out for dinner, in which case I do my best but sometimes veer off a little. My problem are my late-night snacking, which tend not to be as planned or as heal... Read more
Countdown
Thursday, September 24, 2015      2 comments

The in-laws will arrive in 48 hours, and tonight we start scrambling to prepare. I worked from home today to try to get more done by avoiding work drama - it seems counter-intuitive to try to get more work done by staying away from work, but li... Read more
Breaking the cycle
Wednesday, September 23, 2015      3 comments

I've decided I need more sleep - being perpetually tired during the week and then catching up on the weekend is not working out so well. So last night I passed out around midnight. That's a very early weeknight for me! Which means I didn't ge... Read more
Serenity now

If it's called comfort-eating, why aren't I feeling better? emoticon Work is a mess, my in-laws are arrivin... Read more
Recovery

I made a ridiculous amount of food for the kid's soccer team dinner yesterday. So now I have leftover salad good for a couple of work lunches, leftover lasagna for a few dinners, leftover cookies to give away at work, and leftover grapes for sn... Read more
Fun and frivolity
Sunday, September 20, 2015      3 comments

Sunday is going to be a crazy busy day. I need to help clean the house in the morning and buy some fruit, veggies, and fresh bread; I have to cook all afternoon so I can feed dinner to 23 carbo-loading teenage girl soccer players. After cleani... Read more
Busting at the seams
Saturday, September 19, 2015      4 comments

The busting at the seams would be my pantry, and not me - fortunately! Because we are busy this weekend, the hub and I went grocery shopping after dinner tonight and we are now fully loaded. The pantry is full of supplies for the week. ... Read more
Living for the weekend
Friday, September 18, 2015      3 comments

Work feels so overwhelming sometimes that I find myself counting down to the weekend when I can sleeeeep. This weekend will be a little less relaxing than usual. The kid has another soccer game, and also we are hosting a team dinner. Whic... Read more
