Photographics Solution

Yesterday afternoon was so beautiful I decided to take full advantage. Happy Clown (our local ice cream shop) opened up for the season and I wanted to get something while I was home for the week. So I leashed up Lena and took her for a walk. Unfortunately I made the horrible decision of wearing my flip flops for the roughly 5 mile round trip and ended up with blisters on the bottoms of my feet. I purchased a vanilla kiddie cone for Lena and I, though I must admit I did eat most of it...and even though I brought my camera, I couldn't really snap a picture with a leash in one hand and the cone in the other. I guess I should have gotten a dish. Here is a pic of Happy Clown though.

After I got home I decided to make dinner since my mom was working the afternoon shift. I made chicken stir fry with brown rice.
  • chicken breast cut into cubes
  • carrots
  • red bell pepper
  • broccoli
  • water chestnuts
  • pineapple
  • rice vinegar
  • low sodium soy sauce
I didn't think my mom had any ginger so I didn't add any. I found out later that she really did but oh well it still tasted fine to me. You can't see it in the picture but there is some brown rice under there.

This morning my brother asked me to help him out with his Mother's day photoshoots. He's an amazing photographer. If you don't believe me just check out his website Before I left breakfast was a repeat of yesterday. Coffee, Vanilla Chobani, Muesli, and Strawberries. Lunch was really just a snack I grabbed at the convenience store down the street from the studio. I drank some nonfat milk and had a GoLean Crunch bar to hold me over til I would have a real lunch later in the afternoon.

I ended up leaving the studio early to go get a Mother's day card and present for my mom. I know I'm so last minute! When I got home I just had leftover stir fry and brown rice, followed by green tea and an orange and almond dark chocolate bar. Yum Yum!

While having my delicious late afternoon treat, I checked through the mail and look who's on the cover of Prevention: "Dr. Lisa Cuddy"!!! I love House, it's one of my fav shows, though I really wish Kal Penn never left. He's so funny!

My parent's went out to a 50th birthday party tonight so I was just going to relax and hang out by myself for the night. I ended up scrubbing and cleaning out the refrigerator though because it SERIOUSLY needed it. Just a little extra Mother's day present for my super awesome mama. It took me like 3 hours and I only did the refrigerator side. I was so exhausted and starving I never even made it to the freezer side but I don't think that side is too bad. I was feeling pretty crumby so I downed a glass of grape juice to up my blood sugar quick. Then I ate a hard boiled egg to hold me over until I could decide on what I really wanted to eat.

After all that cleaning of the fridge I really wasn't in the mood to prepare anything and I already had the leftover stir fry earlier so I headed to the basement to see what frozen meals we had. It was either enchiladas or stir frys haha. I ended up choosing the beef and broccoli lean cuisine because it had the lowest sodium of all my choices. I still paired it with a large glass of water and a banana for dessert.

My parent's are still out partying the night away. How sad for me haha. I hate being home alone at night though, no matter where I am living at the moment. (I had a complete breakdown in my Worcester apartment 2 years ago when my boyfriend went back to Boston and I was left alone. I thought someone was going to break in and attack me for sure. I think I have some issues lol) So now I am home alone but this time at my parent's house in the middle of the country. No one is even close to coming here yet I still jump at every little sound. It doesn't help that there are like tornado gust winds outside. I'm such a pansy sometimes really.

I guess I'll just head to bed, after I get done watching Betty White on SNL that is! Goodnight!

  1. I hate being home alone too, and there are houses like 5 feet from mine. I can't imagine being all alone in the country! Hope you made ok through the night :)
