January 14th - children. Sigh...
Saturday, January 14, 2012
The girls spent most of the afternoon yelling at each other, enough that I ended up sending them both to their rooms *without* their computers. While they were up there I put the laptops away where they wouldn't find them, and they didn't get them back until after dinner. Things were much quieter without people screaming at each other about problems with computer games and how other people weren't helping, and other people were stupid, etc., etc., etc.
I was so glad when my sister came over to take me out for coffee. A starbucks tall latte with only one packet of sugar in the raw was sweet enough, and I hope this is a sign of changes in my tastes. Hopefully this will keep up. But it was nice *not* wanting to put tons of sugar/honey/flavored syrup in a drink.
I tried some sweet potato hash at dinner. I grated up three small sweet potatoes, added in two eggs and some onion powder, and then fried them up in a dollup of olive oil. We also had eggs and some (guilty pleasure comfort food) turkey spam with cheddar cheese on top. I know spam isn't "real" food, but I've seen supposedly "good for you" food with a worse set of ingredients. Which isn't saying much for the spam, more something bad about what the modern world considers good for us.
