Today is one of those days when you are thankful..right now..that you’re single and childless. Why? Cause I don’t have the stamina. I know that having a partner and having children is a slow adaptive process..but man being a parent is full-on.
After my grumpy morning, I went for a quick jog around the block and got caught up with the SJC. I have to say though that I really REALLY wanted to BINGE today but I didn’t give into it AT ALL. 🙂 I did have two of these granola bars.
I asked myself ‘Michelle, why are you wanting to binge?’ and I honestly thought back..it’s cause you don’t want to work out. GET YOUR ASS OUT ON THE PAVEMENT..it’s exactly what I did. No binge for me.
Lunch was a huge sushi roll with just cucumbers and 1 apple–organic pink lady and I think I fell back in love with organic apples–SO MUCH BETTER.
I met up with Lou to discuss how her 20 month experience in Timor was like. She went up as a voluenteer and then got a paid position with the Minestry of Education. She was fabulous..I told her I’d put her on the blog..she’d be famous. She didn’t understand why I was taking pictures..most people don’t.
I snacked on some grapes from the markets..they made me feel ill. Too much sugar in them. Damn it.
I then went over to my friend Sarah’s house (american) to take her adorable five year old boy to the park. Adorable.
‘Michelle, this is my favorite part of the park’. I know Lochlain. A man after my own heart. I do recall a night when I was a little drunk on the champagne, jumping on the exact swings….
We also went to ColdRock, same as ColdStone, and got L a kiddie ‘Bubblegum w/ mini m&m’s and gummi bears’. I had one bite of it..that’s it…and I felt it.
Went over for dinner at Sarah’s house. Did I mention the she’s an amazing cook. She makes this amazing sourdough bread–no sugar :). She’s had the same sourdough starter for six years. I had three small piece throughout the night. I can’t resist fresh bread.
Lochlain and I played checkers and slap. We had a good day. Dinner was awesome. Oven baked fish strips (for me) with a yummy salad topped with balsamic and a baked sweet potato.
As I was leaving
Lochlain goes ‘Michelle, are you having babies?’
I respond back ‘not until I find a man.’
He looks at me, pauses and goes ‘I’ll be your husband.’
