hey there.. i haven’t had a light post in a while, so i think that is what today will be. i’m having a pretty light day at work today, so i’m going to sneak this post in real quick :)
first, a quick update on my cyst. i was in TERRIBLE pain wednesday, thursday, and friday.. saturday, i decided to ‘shamrock the block’ and had
too many a few beers. my sister, who is my best friend, was in town, also, so we all met up.
it was a good time.. until i got emotional about leaving my sister. i’m SUCH a baby when it comes to leaving my sister. i only see her once every few months so when it comes time to say goodbye, i’m a freaking basket case (even in sober situations: i got my last speeding ticket after i left from a visit home because i was speeding and crying and not paying attention). not sure why this happens, it’s almost like a homesick feeling. i don’t know, i’m weird.
anyway.. the beers took the edge off the pain and then yesterday the packing in the wound fell out.. tmi? (which is where i think most of the pain was coming from) so now i’m just a little sore. don’t worry.. i have a donut seat for work.. yes, i’m 72 years old.
now.. on a lighter note.. when janetha posted this survey, i wanted to do it immediately.. but work was crazy, getting ready to buy a house was super stressful (and still is), my cyst was painful and i barely had time to brush my hair, let alone write a post.. so better late than never, right?
A is for age: 24.. am i the only one who has trouble remembering my age? it’s like my 24 birthday didn’t happen.. i still want to say i’m 23.. sometimes i still think i’m 22.. not sure why, because i don’t act like my age. if that were the case i’d be about 74.
B is for breakfast today: pineapple chobani and a sprinkle of kashi golean crunch – honey almond flax. i’ve tried this combo with apple cinnamon and passion fruit, and i have to say pineapple is my fav. i think the kashi takes away from the apple cinnamon, which is my new favorite flavor, but the pineapple compliments the cereal well. just in case you were wondering :)
C is for currently craving: water. drinking on saturday and then playing softball for 4 hours yesterday left me very dehydrated. i’m 3/4 of the way to a gallon and it’s only 10:15 a.m.
D is for dinner tonight: shamrock ravioli and with meat sauce. we bought festive ravioli from costco last week and didn’t get to eat them friday, saturday, or sunday.. so, today it is!
E is for favorite type of exercise: i love not feeling like i’m exercising. i took racquetball in college and that was prob one of my fav fast-paced sports. yes i love softball, and played it for 20 years, but racquetball was a lot of fun. basketball, when my knees were still fresh, was fun too. funny how i don’t miss softball, but i do miss basketball. i think i was burnt out from softball. (my bball coach told me i wouldn’t get playing time unless i quit softball.. so i quit.. basketball. i’ve missed it since that day)
F is for an irrational fear: between growing up and recently.. i’ve house hunted a lot (we moved 3 times when i was a kid). my biggest fear is that i will fall through the second floor ceiling of an older house.. in the new house, the house wont be finished right away and walking on plywood scares the hell outta me.
G is for gross food: CILANTRO.. blech! i’m also big on texture.. and peas, chick peas, beans, etc really gross me out. i love humus, but i’ve tried falafels and other dishes with chick peas and i just can’t do it.. i will on eat beans with chili, which didn’t start happening until about fall of last year. i still think they ruin a perfectly good dish.
H is for hometown: fairfax, va. 15 mins outside of washington dc.
I is for something important: like i said earlier, my sister. who is my best friend. don’t know what i would do without her. we hated each other growing up.. or more me hating her. i’m not sure why, and i wish i didn’t.
is for current favorite jam: not sure if i have one jam in particular, but i’m loving fun. radio on pandora. that and skyscraper by demi lovato. (note: sometimes i’m a 12 yr old teeny bopper) i don’t discriminate on any music.
K is for kids: scout – 1, yogi – 4, ace – 6
L is for current location: my cube
M is for the most recent way you spent money: deposits for the house people and pampered chef. got LOTS of goodies for the new kitchen :) can’t wait.
is for something you need: the answer about how much we’re actually getting approved for. right now we just have a pre-approval letter.
O is for occupation: general ledger accountant
P is for pet peeve: people who clip their finger nails in public spaces. GROSS.
Q is for a quote: “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
― robert frost
T is for favorite treat: cinnamon toast crunch treats (instead of rice krispies)
U is for something that makes you unique: i am left-handed.. but the only thing i actually do left-handed is write and eat. i was forced to play softball/tee ball right-handed.
V is for favorite vegetable: spaghetti squash.. or eggplant..
W is for today’s workout: still taking it easy for my backside’s sake.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: nose, thumb, both knees, neck, back
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: going to the softball field.
Z is for your time zone: eastern EST
okay. the end. sorry if you didn’t have fun reading this. i had fun writing it :)
hopefully i can find balance in my life sometime soon.. i feel like there is zero structure and i need that.
hope everyone had a great weekend!
