Oh This Feels Good

To sleep in again. I know, I am a slacker!
Today I will make healthy choices!
Today will be a fun day!

Wow. It is hump day already! I have pretty much lost track of the days of the week at this point. We have not had a day off in over a month. Not one day. I was talking to one of my bosses yesterday and she was like, we are all way more tired than we realize. And I am feeling it now! About 2pm yesterday was when it hit, I am hoping to last until 3 today. Baby steps!

Dinner last night at the neighbors was super tasty (and pretty good for me too!). She had made an eggplant dish that was amazing. I think eggplant is going to be on the list for veggies now on a weekly basis! She took it, salted it to drain some of the water out, let it sit for about 30 minutes and blot with paper towels. Then, she sauted it in a bit of olive oil, put it in a baking pan, layered it with diced tomatoes, pepper, italian seasoning, and an italian blend of cheese. Repeat layers = super tasty goodness, after baked for about 10-15 minutes. She also had made asian cabbage, hashbrowns, and chicken sausage. It rounded out to a super tasty, veggie filled meal!

It looks like I get to take off 3 days between this week and next! Woo-hoo! We get either Friday or Monday off and then I am taking Monday and Tuesday for sure. I just have to decide about Friday. But I am thinking it is a go! This means I willbe back in town Monday night, but will still have Tuesday off to veg, get chores done, and relax.

Something big I forgot about, Grandma did not end up having knee surgery. Her GP said that the benefits at her age do not outweigh the risks. I am thinking that everything happens for a reason and that it all worked out. They are trying her on different pain meds to see if they can manage her pain a bit better. We will see.

My car is all fixed, it looks really nice, again! The insurance company wrote me a check to cover the estimate and it is all done now! Well, it is getting an alignment this morning, but aside from that, it is happy. Not sure if it needed the alignment, but it was probably due for one anyhow.

Well today for lunch it is grilled chicken, broccoli and tomatoes. Yummy! Oh and a half a small advacado. :)

Tonight I am not sure what is for dinner, but it will be late, as I am getting my hair done! Such a treat on a weeknight!

I am looking forward to shoe shopping this weekend and clothing shopping for mom!

Happy hump day everyone!

    Eggplant rocks! but only if it's fixed properly. If not it's kind of yucky. I'm glad you've survived your busy season and have your car back. Mine goes in on Halloween for a week's worth of body work.

    I love eggplant, too! I discoverd the Turkish places have them often, so I keep going back!

    Sounds like so many things are in place for you now - so happy for that!

    Thank you for the shoes!! LOL...I was thinking of buying a pair of knee boots to celebrate the new job, but haven't quite taken the step yet...:) Also, if ANYONE deserves some quality time shoe-shopping, it's you, so I'm so glad you're going out this weekend and doing it!! I hope you have a fabulous, relaxing few days off!!

    Working that many days in a row you deserve to sleep in and have some time off to have some "ME" time. I like your attitude!
