Woke up this morning (damn early as always) and regretted the words I wrote yesterday, so I deleted that garbage. I’m hoping that everyone who reads my rants is having such an awesome weekend and haven’t had the time to catch up on any blog world action. I’m done crying :p I did learn something today though… when you don’t have a whole bunch of stuff lined up for pre-work, getting up at 5:30 really serves no benefit. I had thought of maybe getting out on my bike, but while listening to the rain drops against my bedroom window and praying I had closed my sunroof, I realized that likely wasn’t in the cards for today. Also knew showing up to the box would only result in a kick to the curb, rightfully so, but it was sooooo tempting…
My weekend was great! Well, really was only Saturday cause today I’m back at work, but such is the retail life and it’s all good. Thanksgiving/Easter/Christmas are typically holidays my sisters and I somewhat dread cause they mean trekking out to see the family that we otherwise avoid. One year, my uncle was in charge of buying the turkey, which turned out to be rotten but we thankfully figured this out before sitting down to eat! The whole house smelled of dog poop when we first walked through the doors, to the point I was checking my shoes… Anyways, Thanksgiving at my place was a nice change 🙂 We broke away from the traditional dinner and instead enjoyed turkey tomato sauce (with some zip!), spaghetti squash, a big salad, and apple crisp for desert. My first time cooking a complete Paleo meal for company and the reviews all came back 4 stars. Phew! I was a little nervous. Haven’t cooked for anyone but myself in months, and I’m more than satisfied with some pretty random and odd combinations.
This, by the way, was both easy and AMAZING:
My sisters are amazing young women 🙂 My dad parked it on the couch for a nap before dinner while the 3 girls crammed in my little gally kitchen to cook and chat about life. Claire is becoming a Paleo genius and Hannah is kicking butt and taking names at crossfit up in Penetang. Hannah was excited to share some big news… the other day they worked towards a 1 rep max for back squats. First time, and the kid hits #150! Jeezuz! I was so excited for her 🙂 but I may need to up my game!! 😮 Second bit of interesting news from Hannah… my step-mom is crossfitting with her! Say, what?! Both my sisters are still too young to consider anything “mom” does to be cool, but I thought it was pretty bad-ass! I hope I’m still crossfitting in my 50’s!
