It’s a real good thing that I type and you read rather than I talk and you listen because I have no voice left after yesterday’s Islanders game.
It was a crazy intense, loud game (hence the no voice thing) that ended with an Islanders win (2-1) in overtime!
I didn’t even play the game and I was exhausted. Seriously. The emotional aspect of a playoff game for the fans is draining, I am telling you.
The players thrive off of the crowd’s energy so I felt it my duty to stay involved in the screaming and carrying on because yes, the lack of my involvement may affect the rest of the sounds coming from the other 16,000 fans.
If only I could properly wave the rally towel though. Instead I use it as my security blanket, clutching and clawing it during the nail-biting moments of the game…. At least I don’t bite my nails?
Anyways, I love doing my food shopping on Fridays because it frees up time over the weekend to do other things.
I bought lots of bananas and frozen fruit, including frozen pineapple since my son and I are both on a smoothie kick <– I still don’t know who I am or how this happened.
I didn’t buy chicken. Usually I have some sort of boneless, skinless, organic, free range, hormone-free chicken cutlet or tender in the house to cook for my son but lately he wants nothing to do with it.
He tells me it doesn’t taste right, in terms of texture. I am having a slight issue with this since I cannot taste it to confirm or determine the problem.
Which chicken are you currently buying? Which brand? Is it good?
Please help me because I just came across this recipe for crispy coconut chicken with honey orange sauce and I think he would really like it but I can’t make it until I can guarantee some good chicken!
The weather was glorious this weekend. I contemplated running by the beach Saturday morning but I am lazy and like the comfort of circling my front door instead.
It was so warm and sunny that I realized it’s about that time to whip out the sunblock! I know I know, we are supposed to wear it all year but I don’t.
Click here for my sunscreen guide from last spring. It’s chock full of info on the best products for our skin.
At mile 11 of my long run on Saturday, I came across an abandoned spoon. Rather random, don’t you think?
I didn’t pick it up, as much as I love spoons, since I prefer the yogurt store kind.
I also prefer to utilize the empty TJ peanut butter jars as my bowl instead of empty Peanut Butter & Co. jars because they are easier to navigate.
Saturday’s post run breakfast — delicious every single time.
I was really annoyed that the yogurt store I was at on Saturday was out of my favorite spoons which I love to take home with me.
Just to clarify why this isn’t Red Mango: Red Mango frozen yogurt is not like every other random fro yo chain; it’s healthier, made with better ingredients and I load it with fruit and Nature’s Path granola. I consider Red Mango a nice lunch for me, not just a snack or a treat.
When I want dessert, as in, want hot fudge, whipped cream and lots of chocolate crunchies, I have no problem hitting up any random self-serve frozen yogurt store which is how it went down on Saturday.
My head has been in a bit of a cluttered fog lately in case you were curious. So many things going on (all good stuff!!) but I need to get it all in order and under control so that my world is operating on the usual balanced axis.
I had some post ideas in my mind that were waiting to be developed which I thought I would work on Saturday morning after my long run but instead, I cleaned out my closet and organized my armoire.
Sometimes clearing clutter somewhere else helps me to set my mind back on track.
Oh wait, I once did a post on Organizing Your Life To Organize Your Mind. I think I need to reread it!
I never did get to developing those posts but I am not worried —it will happen.
What’s important is that my head feels clear and ready for the week, my clothes are in better alignment and my Islanders are winning their playoff series.
Now all I need is for everyone to wish for a Penguins win this evening against the Rangers, okay?
Sometimes a Rangers loss is just as good, if not better, than an Islanders win.
Have a terrific start to your week 🙂The Islanders Won & Other Weekend Fun #Islanders #froyo #organize Click To Tweet
Best of luck to all of the Boston marathoners running today!
Please tell me which chicken you buy and where you get it?!
Did you buy anything new at the grocery store this week?
Does organizing your closet help you to organize everything else in life too?
