I apologize on behalf of technology if you had any issues logging into my site yesterday morning. Things were only down for about an hour or so but you better believe I was struggling to remain calm for those 60 minutes. Have I mentioned I hate computers and tech type things? I don’t speak their language nor do I want to learn it.
While getting a manicure the other day, I told the manicurist I had been baking chocolate chip cookies right before my appointment as my way of explaining the chocolate under my nails. Only I was sort of totally lying because I didn’t bake cookies and it wasn’t chocolate under my nails, it was remnants of frozen blueberries.
Chocolate is better understood and accepted over saying Hi, I have frozen blueberries all over my hands because I grab them by handfuls from the freezer to use in my oatmeal and smoothies. Frozen blueberries stain my hands and everything that I touch in my kitchen (you should see the refrigerator door and microwave) and there’s some under my nails too because I am a mess.
The weather over here in New York has been gorgeous. Like, I don’t need a coat and can go in and out of the house or the car without getting a chill. I can run in a tank top. My son has been wearing shorts to school. It’s the middle of the December. This must be what it is like to live in Florida.
I had lunch at Panera yesterday while working which rarely happens but I had a gift card so it was a nice treat. In theory that is. I don’t really love any of the salads at Panera anymore since they did away with the power hummus bowl.
Was anyone going to tell me that lululemon changed their signature red and white bags to this?!
Instead of a text this week from my son, I thought you might appreciate the hand written grocery list he left for me.
Texts are easier to read, I know. I like to think his hand writing is a sign of a future doctor.
Please note the following references which I take as a personal attack:
He purposely tells me I shouldn’t get the cream cheese from Trader Joe’s. Not because he doesn’t like how it tastes but because he feels anything from Trader Joe’s right now is terrible and wrong and should be banned from our house for life. He has no real reason to offer us other than his mother shops there which must mean it’s healthy and healthy is not acceptable at the moment.
What’s with the Bisquick request? Is he trying to now say he didn’t love last week’s peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes that I made from scratch? He cleaned his plate and told me they were great. I don’t understand.
Real honey? Was I buying fake honey?
Actually good mac and cheese? Kraft? Is he for real? Does he not follow Food Babe and her quest to ban the bad ingredients in the blue box?
Real ground beef? It’s not like I am giving him meatless crumbles (I stopped attempting that one last year). I make him steak quite often and only sometimes try to use ground turkey in some recipes. Whatever. I honored this real ground beef request to make Monday night’s burrito bowl. He actually liked it and asked that I make it again.
I bought the requested Tostitos. The baked version though, knowing he would freak that they were the baked version 😉
One day he will appreciate me. I just know he will.When Your Child Makes The Grocery List #thinkingoutloud #manicure #groceries @runwithspoons #lululemon Click To Tweet
