Woot Woot! I am so looking forward to busting through the 80's and finding my way back into the 70's. Not eating out and making all my food at home seems to make a big difference. So does a stomach bug.
If you've watched The Devil Wears Prada then you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, go rent it immedidately and catch up on some pop-culture. As you may have gathered from my title today, my tummy isn't feeling so hot. Anything I eat isn't 'sticking' if you know what I mean. It didn't start until last night. I tried some smoked turkey sausage which wasn't bad but about an hour later I was having contractions like I was about to give birth. I'm not even pregnant! It was a miserable few hours.
I had a fabulous weekend. I slept more than usual as in till after 1:00pm both Saturday and Sunday. This is highly unusual. Even on days where adult beverages are heavily involved the evening before, I don't sleep that late. Hindsight and all tells me maybe I was starting to get this bug I've got. Who knows. I skipped out on the Saturday football game revalry.
Sunday I didn't do much but wash some clothes. I got a call about 3:00 from Skinny Athletic Girl. She wanted to make sure I was still on for our weekend plans. There was one big change, we wouldn't be heading out until Monday. It's just a day trip! Woo Hoo! I should be able to manage that.
I did make a fantastic dinner Sunday night. I had some shrimp in the freezer I bought a few weeks ago when they were on sale. I thought for a minute, what to do with these shrimp? Last time I had shrimp, it was somewhat scampi style and I didn't enjoy it as much. this time, I decided I just wanted to boil them in salt water. So that's what I did. Wait, it gets better. Just shrimp isn't an exciting meal, so I decided to make some pasta (I used thin spaghetti) and toss it with some olive oil, a little bit of butter, spinach, garlic and parmasean cheese. Yum. Throw in the shrimp and I had a delicious dinner!
Monday I got a swimsuit from my mom (aren't moms great?), threw on some cargo shorts and a white button-down and headed out the door. It was a fairly good time overall! I got some sun, had some good laughs, lived through what I consider to be a traumatic experience. Then I came home and pretty much immediately got sick. Nice.
I'd have to give this weekend a score of a 6.9 on a scale of 10. It could have been better, but it could have been a whole lot worse.
