Well, after yesterday’s shit show, today was a better day by a mile. As Victor Hugo so wisely said, “even the darkest night will end the sun will rise. Indeed Monsieur Hugo, the sun will rise. Thankfully, today was a complete 180 from yesterday. Every person I spoke with was absolutely wonderful, kind and a buyer. Okay, maybe they weren’t all buyers, but they were fantastic people.
It was also a better day traffic wise as I left to get coffee. I had been getting my coffee delivered while the boys were in school, but that gets expensive. Plus, Goalielocks doesn’t need the car in the morning anymore, so there’s not need for delivery. Also, I did miss seeing my favorite Dunkin’ crew members. Moreover, I enjoy having the time to myself and being able to listen to what I want.
I’m a bit surprised that today has been a better day in every sense since I’m fasting today. Thankfully, today has been much easier on me than Tuesday. Honestly, since I just have to fast two days per week, it should be quite manageable. For dinner, I made baked chicken breasts with cheese topping. The chickens used for this package must have been on steroids because these were the biggest chicken breast’s I’ve ever seen.
Here’s a list of our day’s activities:
*I finished the Norse Queen by Johanna Wittenberg last night. It was so good. I love reading about Norwegian history especially given this book’s location to where my ancestors lived.
*I ran 2 miles and walked a mile. It went quite well.
*The Mayor has been on a Simpson kick lately, but tonight I’m mixing it up with some First 48 action.
*For dinner, I cooked cheese covered baked chicken. The chicken breasts were large enough to feed Paul Bunyan. Honestly, their size was surreal.
*My favorite surprise on the underwater cams, I watch during work, is seeing an octopus. Today I watched the safari cam, which never disappoints.
*Today’s word of the day is shag. When I hear the word shag, I automatically think of Austin Powers and ugly carpeting.
*I took my puppies including sweet Anakin for a walk. Today he didn’t pull my arm off or anything like that. I put on his harness, so I’d have more control over him outside. Also, the flies are still here. Did I mention I hate gnats, flies, and mosquitos? I was finally able to hang the fly traps. Nobody loves flies.
