I made the pancakes following Lisa's recipe, and I added walnuts and pecans. I topped it this morning with butter and a little bit of syrup, plus a few strawberries.
At school today, lunch was provided by our district, so I ate a piece of vegetarian pizza and a side salad with tomatoes, avocado, red onion, and cucumbers. The salad was surprisingly good! I also ate an apple on my way home from work.
As I thought about my post for tonight, I realized that this evening had been exactly a typical night for us. It's funny how quickly we can fall into our old routines. Today was my first day actually working at my new school (we had a technology workshop for new teachers), and I immediately settled into my school schedule.
3:30 pm - Leave work, make sarcastic comments at horrible drivers on my way to the grocery store
3:45 pm - Get super excited about the fact that it only took me 15 minutes to get to the store, grab my items, and chat with the checker at Trader Joe's
4:25 pm - Arrive home, put away the groceries, play with the kitten, eat a few homemade pita chips with hummus
(To make the pita chips a few days ago, I used Trader Joe's Whole Wheat pitas, cut them into six triangles, spread them out on a baking sheet, and sprayed them on both sides with my Misto olive oil sprayer. Then I sprinkled one side with sea salt and popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes, until golden brown and crunchy. I let them cool completely before stacking to avoid letting them get mushy.)
4:45 pm - Check e-mail, work on school stuff
5:45 pm - Terry arrives home and startles the cat, who is sleeping in a bag next to the door
6:00 pm - Head out for our run (today it was only four miles at an easy pace, because we are officially tapering!
7:00 pm - Arrive home, eat a spoon of peanut butter, drink a glass of milk
7:04 pm - Shower, put on comfy clothes, start dinner
7:50 pm - Sit down to eat dinner, which was fajitas (fajita salad for me)
|See that giant bowl? I could only eat half. I got too excited while assembling my meal!|
Terry made some delicious guacamole, and I had a few chips to go along with it.
8:15 pm - Watch Jeopardy, which we recorded earlier, while stretching
8:45 pm - Start writing the blog post while Terry does dishes
9:30 pm (to be fair, this part is a prediction) - Finish cleaning up and get ready for bed
9:45 pm - Relax, watch a little TV, read, and go to sleep
This, my friends, is what marriage looks like. At least our marriage. And it's awesome.
