When the in-laws were in town, one of the things we accomplished was to assemble the awesome grill that my parents had bought us as a house warming gift. Kudos to Jeff and his dad for figuring THAT out!
Sunday had amazing weather. It was warm, sunny, and I guess the wind was a little strong, but alright! Since the weather was what it was, we decided to break in the grill and cook some steaks!
Mother nature had other ideas and started spitting as soon as Jeff was back with the propane. That’s okay, though! Mother Nature has got nothing on MY mom… So off to the garage we went.
Mother Nature picked up the pace and brought roiling thunder and some lightening. Jeff brought an umbrella and an extra place setting.
Jeff manned the grill while I set up an impromptu dining room out of canvas chairs and a coffee table that I wanted to refinish.
When the steaks were done, the meal was served, and the thunder rolled.
Consider grilling season officially started!
I said this morning that wipers up means snow will be coming down. It started early afternoon, and never really let up…
The roads were icy, visibility was reduced… And I had to go to school for class tonight.
Yeah. Good luck getting anywhere.
You know what, though? I got there, checked my voicemail, and heard a message saying class was canceled.
Some days are only good for building snowmen and going to bed early.
Tonight I’m wearing my warrior shirt to bed. Kind of need a reminder to eat better tomorrow and stop getting so frustrated with work. I ranted at a friend* at work today about all of my frustrations and it just made me want to cry. Then, I rushed off to school where I was scheduled for an exam…I was feeling crappy, so what did I have for dinner? A chicken taquito, a corndog, a bag of chips, a handful of dark chocolate, and about half a cup of gelato. Did it feel good at the time? Absolutely. Does it feel good now? Nope. Can I take it back? Nope! Time to move on.
Tomorrow I’ll be well rested, and I’ll make sure to have healthy snacks with me.
Have a good night!
