So, yeah. My birthday was crappy. i tried not to think of it that way, or admit it, but it was. But a lot of the crappiness had to do with my state of mind. I mentioned that I just wanted to go home and cook and clean and relax in front of the tube, but the truth is, I think I really just wanted to go home and cry.
I feel a little better today. Visiting my aunt and uncle last night didn't help, though. I knew they were just going to complain, and that's what they did. But whatever. I expected it.
Tonight I'm mostly plan-free. I'm considering stopping by my parents' house to do my taxes as quickly as I can. I did them over the weekend, but apparently I now make too much to be able to file for free online. I refuse to pay for software when I can file for free if I just write it all out, but my mom has the software and I guess you can file up to 5 returns with it. So fine, whatever. It needs to be done. I want to get my return. I'm almost done paying off my Home Equity Line of Credit. When that's paid off, I can focus on paying off my car. And when that's paid off, my mortgage. Thinking about how much I've paid down makes me pretty excited. I'm getting closer. That makes me very very happy.
As for my diet, I'm doing pretty good. There are bagels and donuts everywhere here at work today, and I have unbelievably been able to resist them all. The owner's husband came in our office with a box of donuts and told me to take one... like right at my desk, he shoved them at me and made me feel like I didn't have a choice. I had to politely say "No thank you" 3 times before he finally got frustrated and told me to give one to my boss. This is the same guy who asks me on occasion, "Hey, are you still running?" when I know he's thinking, "It sure doesn't look like it and I think you should get back on that!". Ugh, people.
I cooked my chicken last night and it was okay. I think I made the slices TOO thin, and I forgot to season it. So I'm going to try again tonight. Cutting the chicken is actually pretty tough... and SCARY! but like everything else, I'm sure I'll get better with practice. At least I have some for lunch today. Bummer part of lunch is that I forgot my salad. So I'm just going to have some extra baby carrots.
Speaking of lunch, it's about that time for me. Have a good day, Spark.
