The cooking marathon beginning with corned beef and continuing on with some major food prep!Read More
Goal: “Meal Prep” smoothie jars with everything I put in, or at least most, so I can freeze, then dump in the Vitamix with water, juice, herbal tea etc and save a bunch of time in the comatose morning.
This day is one for the books, I am someone who normally checks very carefully to make sure I have everything and even though I knew I used my purse in an unusual way yesterday I thought I put it back where I keep it but I was wrong and I ended up going to an interview half an hour away with no purse nor everything one would want to have in a purse.
I had planned on returning items to a store 20 minutes farther than that but could not do so without the purse so I came home. I should also mention that at the interview I got scampered over by a spider…
There I was at an interview for a mental health position, and I felt something on my cheek. It felt like it was moving but I decided to convince myself it was just my hair because freaking out around mental health professionals might be less than ideal. I felt it a few more times even after I thought I put my hair behind my ear. It wasn't Until I saw the buggery spider crawling across my hand that I realized it had in fact been an actual creepy crawly. When they asked me later how I handle stressful situations, I probably could've won by citing my calm demeanor whilst being traversed by an arachnid. 👹
I thought about going to dinner with some sisters from church but I realized it was in the opposite direction from a dance this evening so it wouldn't be a really realistic to go to both, despite my usual desire to try and fit more into a day than is humanly possible. So I got some things done around the house and then went to the dance. I also had some gifts to drop off with my friend and after some phone tag, turns out she was not even at home for the evening and part of the gift needed refrigeration. And would not have been good to leave on the porch exposed to elements and critters.
So at least I got to drop that off with her landlady who said if I arrive soon I can drop it off before she goes to bed while I was already sitting outside.
So I show up to the dance even though it's more than half over and I'm hoping they'll give me a discount for that, only to find the parking lot sparsely populated where it's normally packed.
As it turns out even though it's supposed to be the first Friday dance. For whatever reason they moved it to next week instead. I normally would check on that sort of thing as well.
So here I sit in the parking lot hoping it's not going to charge me for being in here these moments and I think in the end I'm just going to head home for a most uneventful evening where I could've gotten quite a bit of work done in these hours spent traveling.
I was thinking it was one of those waste of a good make up day situations. But then I realize I could just go and do some video blogs when I get home. There's always a positive to be found if you just take a moment to reflect.
Update: I decided to find some interesting unique place to eat. And am now about to try my first Afghan restaurant. :).
How to be happy when someone gets a good parking spot that you had your eye on. Hint- you may end up with the better parking spot... it just hasn't opened up yet to show itself to you! Be patient, you may end up with more than you bargained for!Read More
