what is this theoretically of which you speak? i'm coming, woman!
Glad to see you posting - I had been missing you!!
(Is your address still the one with 'Chapel' in it? I have belated holiday things to send you!)
It is, and now I'm all bouncy. :)
I've been reading everything and trying to reply but I just hadn't gotten up the energy to post. And this morning I was like "must post!"
*inspires while I eat my 2 pts of oatmeal!*
Feast was double-D delightful. Well-timed, well-served, and yummy to boot. I ate whole hog (felt that way anyway).
I'm so glad you liked it! We had such a blast cooking it. Lots of laughing and hanging out and just enough excitement to keep us all from being bored without having enough to burn down the kitchen. AND! I got ham with savory toasted cheese for my dinner. :)
Plus I got to use my McGuyver skills when we ran short on pie crust. So lie to me and tell me that the pear pie your table got was gorgeous and didn't look like it had been rolled out with an empty beer bottle... just... theoretically.
Oh no, our table's pie was too big and the crust was too buttery and flaky, and it wasn't the usual sickening sweetness, and (ok I am lying to cover the fact that I ate a quarter of our table's pie, then took one home, eeerrrp...)
Verdict: beer-bottle-rolled crust not totally offputting. I win at crisis recovery!
Is *that* what you were using??? Ah...
>>So far I've been to the gym every day this week.
Oooh! Oooh! Me Too! Me Too! Actually, twice even on Tuesday (needed an excuse for a steam and a hot-tub).
I've started going in the mornings before work, it's working out very well, at least for this week. We'll see if I can keep it up for the next couple of weeks.
As for food, I just had a freezer-section pot-pie, and now I'm enjoying some Doritos.
Tomorrow - Legs.
I'm supposed to go today but I know I'm going both Saturday and Sunday and my legs are KILLING me. So I think I might do some yoga when I get home and give myself a day off.
And I do mornings too. If I don't, it doesn't get done. Plus if I go before I eat it tends to make my food better for the rest of the day.
That was my thinking. First thing in the morning is the only way to make sure it doesn't get rescheduled into oblivion. And, if I don't get anything else accomplished later in the day, I have at least done that.
I'm going every weekday morning for a few weeks to get myself in the habit, but I'm not doing very challenging workouts, hopefully to avoid wearing myself out too soon.
But, my body is still getting used to the whole schedule change thing.
mellies, i miss you liek whoa.
Min. I miss your smile. Also? I had a Christmas card to give you while we were at the bagel shop and I forgot. If I send it now can we pretend my post office lost it?
today i am smiling lots because it is sunny and warm here! in january! i love that about where i live.
also, yes of course we can pretend the post office lost it. and then i will get some mail that is not a bill or a piece of junk mail. i have not gotten a piece of mail that was not a bill or junk mail in almost two weeks, which makes me sad.
It's been roughly eighteen years since my last update.
that sounds like a confession. therefore, drink three bloody marys and post before the buzz wears off. then we'll forgive you. *g*
