New Beginning...

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

I finally have internet access. I missed you guys!!!

I think the house is functional for the most part. I am in no way unpacked or organized, but I have some clothes and kitchen stuff unpacked. And of course, my stationery and stickers (current sticker count: 2760).

I put my husband on a bus yesterday, so today was going to be my official start date of my 10 pounds in 7 weeks. Buuuut, I forgot to weigh myself this morning. And I don't have the tape measure...I just realized that I didn't pack it. And no printer to print one out yet. I may just get a new one later, but until then, I'll go with my weight measurement (tomorrow). At a minimum, though, here is the promised photo:

I'm wearing all black, so I guess it's slimming. emoticon

I start work tomorrow. I can't believe how fast everything is happening, but I am not very sad anymore.

I bought salad things. Lettuce, tomato, bell pepper, celery, radishes....

I need to also buy some other, heartier things to put in the salad. I tried to find a salad generator online and couldn't find one, but how cool would that be? You'd spin a wheel for base (arugula, romaine, spinach...) then veggies, then maybe even fruits, then nuts, seeds, meats, dressings...and so on. I think I'll try to make my own salad generator.

Tomorrow, I'll post my weight.

    Mmmmm, salad! My housemate made a great one last night with carrots, apples, walnuts, lemon juice & mint.

    I hope you're feeling a bit more settled, & I hope the job is going well. Did you have a good Christmas & new year's? How often are you & Aldo able to get together? Want to come see me sometime soon? I'd love to fix dinner for you!

    whenever i need ideas for salads, i got to the website for this salad place I like and just look at their ingredients or their various salad combos. I love the Mexican salad from there but i can make 2x as much for about half the price. Here's the website in case you want inspiration!
    Also, i dont know if it's in season everywhere, but the last month or two i've been getting AWESOME butter lettuce for my salads. I couldn't find it at the store today. But I love the taste of it.
