Today I woke up feeling much better (thankfully). I’m so glad I took today off (and Tim had the day off) as a mental health day! I needed it.
I had been planning a short 2 mile run and cross training today, but I figured I wait to see how food sat in my stomach before I went out. I had a small bowl of cereal for breakfast and I was okay, but after lunch…bleh. The nausea returned–not as bad as yesterday, but I don’t think running would have been advisable. I hate skipping out–I feel like I’m making excuses, ESPECIALLY since I’ve been off for about a week now, but sometimes it’s just necessary. I’m hoping everything is back to normal tomorrow.
Anyhow. Unrelated, but I caught all three of our animals in one frame today, which is unusual.
Buckley was unlucky enough to get a bath today due to a mysterious poop odor surrounding him wherever he went. Southpaw helped him dry off.
I post too many animal pictures, don’t I? I should stop that. Sorry. We’re obsessed.
Anyway. This afternoon I decided to finish menus for the tables at the reception. I like knowing what I’m eating at plated dinners! I’m just planning on putting one or two on a table. Unfortunately, Michael’s only had seven sheets of vellum left, and I messed up a few, so I only ended up getting about ten done. I’ll have to stop and get more next time I’m there, but I think they turned out well!
That menu makes me drool just looking at it. Too bad I’ll split my wedding dress if I eat any of it! (Our venue coordinator will be under strict instructions to pack us a full doggie bag for the honeymoon suite after the reception. Yup. Sexy.)
Oh, and also? My poor laptop is broken again. I’m using Tim’s. The screen started flickering and going totally white, and the mouse button stopped clicking. I have one month left on my Best Buy service plan, so it’s back in the shop, hoping they’ll fix it. I could really use a new laptop!
For dinner, I thought I’d try this soup that Leah sent in her care package.
It smelled and looked so good!
Cheese tortellini and Italian chicken sausage in a tomato-y broth with lots of spices! Yum. Unfortunately, due to my tummy issues, I had a few bites and stopped because I knew it would be too spicy for me to handle tonight. I had a few pieces of French bread instead. Tim, however, gave it two thumbs up and plans on eating the rest of it for lunch this week! He REALLY liked it. Thanks, Leah!
I also made some peanut butter brownies for Tim to take to work. Unfortunately, I underbaked them, so they’re almost raw in the center. Grr.
Anyway, hopefully my stomach and shins will cooperate and I’ll be able to run tomorrow! I felt great on Friday…so here’s hoping I can get back on track. I’m starting to get a wee bit nervous after missing almost a week of half training!
Animal pictures: more, less, or just enough?
