I'm working on a post that covers the week that has passed. But for now here is just a quick blurb about today.
At 4 o'clock pm I was ready to quit. I had a plan for dinner and food in the refrigerator but no desire to cook. Or really to eat what I had planned. I am just bored with our food right now. It seems like we are having the same things more or less, over and over. I wanted pizza! And I got grumpy and whiney and irritated. I think I fell back to Kill All Things mode for a while there.
Anyhow, Sarah and I talked and just decided to go out to Smoke on the Square in town where we knew we could get a compliant meal. We both had a burger, no bun, spring mix, tomato, asparagus, and I had a baked sweet potato (my 3rd of the day) and Sarah had mixed veggies. That was fine. It got me through the day and I'm done. Mark Day 18 off. I could have made that meal at home no problem, but I was thankful I didn't have to cook or do dishes.
Weekends are hard. I want to go out, have some comfort food with my friends and be social. We've got one more weekend to go. Maybe I can plan ahead to make it through it a bit better.
We are missing food from Chen's, pizza, Sarah wants wine and I want milk. I'd love to go to Lang Van in Charlotte and have a bowl of lemon grass tofu over fresh herbs and vermicelli noodles. Ah, that day is coming.
I've been fighting a head cold for 3 days. Tomorrow I want to just rest. I think we have meals planned for Day 19 so hopefully I won't freak out again.
Sorry no photos. I'll try and get that catch up post done tomorrow sometime.
