Good evening everyone!
It is time for the official recap of the day.
I then went to go get my oil changed, my front differential fluid changed, and my tires rotated. I also changed my oil catch can. With the car running a lot better, I went home and had lunch.
I had some leftover spaghetti and some salt and vinegar Popchips. Love that flavour!
I laid around all day and watched television. It was relaxing but also very boring. I snacked on some Newman’s Own Organics dried fruit and some Newman’s Own Organics chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and I also had some “raspberry drink,” which Mike’s mom gave me. It is a fermented drink made with raspberries, oranges, whey, sea salt, water, and coconut sugar I think. I want to make some of my own. She gave me some whey and coconut sugar to do so, so I’m excited for when I can do that!
Mike got home around 530pm and we went to Hyvee for some groceries. I got about $30 worth of stuff, and he got around double that o.O lol.
Anyway, we cooked dinner together. He made a bag of Bertolli (steak, portabello, linguine type) and I made up a salad. In the salad, a mixed iceberg and romaine and then added a heated stirred egg (before it coagulated), cherry tomatoes, a cut up roma tomato, lemon juice, sea salt, and pepper. The salad was not bad on its own, but Mike added dressing. I would have added feta cheese and greek dressing if I could!
This meal was delicious. I had some organic blue tortilla chips on the side.
And then I had some more with my favorite salsa (though I have to say that Jason’s Deli salsa that comes with their blue chips was spectacular).
Not long after, I went out on a long walk. I didn’t take anything but my ipod, but from my normal route and how much extra I walked, I would assume I went at least 6 miles. My legs are a little tired but not much. It felt good to get out.
Tomorrow I need to deposit some money in the bank and go running, but that is all I have on my to-do list. I do need to figure out my textbook situation as well, but I may wait on most of them after the first week of classes. I didn’t even really need my books last time, and I’m thinking I might be able to get by without two of them. That will save me 75-85$ each book. I also need to get a backup set of makeup for when I stay the nights, as well as a pillow case. That will be expensive as I wear bare minerals! Agh!
Anyway, I don’t work til 8pm tomorrow so I’ll be blogging sometime before then 🙂 It has been a nice 6 days off.
