I’ve been in another funk lately. Really hormonal. Yesterday, I was instantly annoyed by any, all & everything. Today, I’ve been weepy as all get-out. I’ve also been eating everything in sight. Last night I had a craving for candy, so I got out the chocolate chips and peanut butter:
Today was one of those days where I wished I could’ve gone back 24 hours and changed a few things. Or just come back home and gone back to bed. The bambino decided to stay up until about 11:30. Then around 2:15, some putz was banging on something outside which woke me up. The morning was fine till we got to daycare. For whatever reason at that point, the bambino decided to have a meltdown. After we got him calmed down, we walked out, and just as we got to the door, Jay heard him crying, and as we drove off, we noticed him (and the director of his daycare) at the window crying. Which meant I cried the whole way to work. And at lunch time, I had to run by the post office. Since I didn’t have leftovers, I also had to run by somewhere to get lunch. Naturally, they screwed up my order. I hate American “cheese” so I usually get hamburgers (and after watching “Food Revolution” I will never touch a chicken nugget again). I got a cheeseburger. Ugh.
The day wasn’t a total washout though. I got to leave early, since today was the 15th anniversary of the opening of the bambino’s daycare. And when I got home, Jay brought in this box:
Thanks to the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program, I got a Hickory Farms gift box. And right away there were 2 hungry vultures circling around:
My sister Kendra loves these things, although since she’s vegan now, she wouldn’t eat anything in this box. Maybe the strawberry candies, but that’s probably about it. I recall several instances of having to go out a day or 2 after Christmas , and even New Year’s so she could get herself a box at 50% or 75% off. Jay immediately broke into one of the sausages & the mustard. And the bambino swiped a candy.
Because I was still somewhat sulking over my day, I decided scalloped potatoes and ham were necessary.
I’ve had a bunch of baked goods in the house lately, so the ice cream was a nice change of pace. I am very glad it’s almost the weekend. Tomorrow evening I’ll work on my grocery list, and start formulating my Thanksgiving Day menu! I probably will change my mind about it, but green beans might make a second appearance at my table! We’ll see how brave I’m feeling next week.
