I know I didn’t post yesterday, and today you’re not getting the whole deal either as I’m just popping in. This week has been pretty disastrous on food, but I know whose fault that is- mine. I had the chance to make very good choices when we went out on Tuesday night, but I decided not to, and just ordered whatever looked good instead. Wednesday I did good, and stayed on track, and actually finished the day under my limits. But Thursday we went out to dinner with Geoff and their mom, and due to issues happening while she was in transit, we didn’t eat until almost 9pm. By then I said the hell with trying to pick something friendly, and I ordered a big ass burger, fries, and had raspberry iced tea to drink. I honestly didn’t even try to count Points+ for that meal and didn’t bother to record it in any way. I know it ate up a huge number of P+ and if I show any loss at all this Sunday I will be shocked, but it won’t be any mystery why, and I know who is to blame when it happens.
Today wasn’t much better on food, though I did track and record roughly 40 Points+ for the day. I say roughly because I am guessing at how much cheese I put in the mac n cheese- I neglected to weigh it after I cut it. I did at least get some fruits and veggies in today, with an apricot, a peach, and some broccoli in tonight’s dinner. I wanted to make something that was both quick, and comforting as Mattie had a long (and rough) day today with having to commute down to LA for something for work, and his ride as passenger was nerve-wracking for him and he came home far from calm and relaxed.

First off, I re-listed the 15 sewing patterns that did not sell on eBay this afternoon. Check them out here. I did sell 11 of them though, so I feel pretty good about that. All of them have been paid too except from one buyer who bought several, and hopefully they will pay up before I go out tomorrow so I can ship all the rest at once.
I was also talking to a friend online and he was asking me when the last time I went on vacation was. I told him about four years ago, when we drove up to Oregon to visit friends, and he asked how nature was up that way. This is one of the photos I shared with him. I took this one standing at the base of a redwood tree in Northern California, not even a particularly gigantic one, looking up to its top. Amazing, right?

Its late, I’m ridiculously tired paired with being in a bit of a food coma from eating way too much at dinner (I’ll get to that) and I’m just realizing this is not going to be a good week for food for me at all. We went out to eat this evening for Mattie’s dad’s birthday dinner, and on Thursday we’ll be going out again, this time with his mom for Mother’s Day. I don’t know where we’re going Thursday, but tonight I went way overboard and just in general fucked up on food all day long. As it is, I’m having one of those days where I feel like food (lots of food) is the answer to everything. I had a good breakfast, but then followed it with junk, followed by fruit (partially dressed as junk) followed by a huge dinner that started with appetizers and ended with a huge burger and a side salad. Its been hours since we ate, and honestly all I can think about is eating something else, even though I’m pretty sure I’ll be sick if I do. Its just one of those days. :(

This week’s grocery haul is a small one. I feel like I spent more on water than anything else, but as far as the meat I bought goes, I did okay. Shrimp of course is always pricey, and we killed all of it off in dinner that night, but it was so good! Definitely worth the $5.00.
I didn’t want to buy two cases of water, but the weather has been hot- really hot. It was 99* today and we were dying, and as a result, drinking a lot of water. Its a necessity because I don’t trust the tap water- who knows what chemicals they treat it with, and it tastes funny to me anyway. We have a filter pitcher but I can’t make myself believe it does much of anything for the water.
Here’s Monday’s grocery haul in all its glory. I wish I could say I found some actual deals this week, but I can’t.
