I (stupidly) lay down on the couch at around 1AM figuring I would keep him company and woke up at 7AM all cramped and achy to the sound of a 'shoot-em-up' video-game wafting out of the office and the project not-quite-finished-yet on the dining room table.
Now it's 10AM and he finally finished the project and left for his presentation.
So far this morning I; watered the plants, considered paying the bills that are piled up on the computer desk (we only got them in the mail yesterday - don't worry), tried on my 'old' skirts which now officially fit again (woohoo! I'm 2 sizes down! Yeah, I'm still 17lbs away from what I weighed when I got married - but considering I've lost 26lbs - in the last 5 weeks...it's pretty exciting. All I've wanted for the last 2 years is to fit into my 'old' clothes - and it's finally happening. Plus, I'm hoping that once I reach equilibrium, and my pre-marriage weight - that the Dr. will start taking me seriously about my stomachaches/nausea and will agree to send me to a gastro rather than telling me that I don't feel well because I'm fat and I don't eat properly.) 3 cheers for finally having pretty shabbos skirts to wear again! I can finally stop wearing my black wrap skirt every week Friday night and Shabbos day!
I also started a new thing in my kitchen, let's just call it a 'milk conservation act' - Almost every other week we buy a 1 liter (4 cup) bag of milk. It sits in the fridge waiting for me to get in the mood to either bake something milchig, make pancakes, cook up some macaroni & cheese or even drink a cup of coffee. When the expiration date approaches I usually use a cup or so of it because I feel guilty wasting a whole liter of milk - but inevitably I wind up pouring most of it down the drain, clumpy, smelly and waaaay post-expiration date. Waste of money, waste of milk. So I've decided to finally take action. This week we bought a bag of milk. I measured it out by the 1/2 cup and froze it in little containers. Although spontaneous coffee drinking won't necessarily be as plausible with this method - hopefully a lot less milk will end up being wasted. Seems worth the effort to me. (But I'll let you know how I feel about it in a few months.)
I'm not quite sure what to do today. Z probably won't be home until this evening so I'm on my own. I'm not in the mood to do arts-n-crafts (cause my bitten nails/fingers hurt - a lot - I did quite a number on them.) I don't want to bake because I made bread yesterday and there are plenty of sweets in the house already. It's a little too early to cook for Shabbos (or I'll be bored out of my mind tomorrow and Friday.) I don't want to organize shelves - just because it's one of those 'things to do' that always needs to be done and I don't have patience to start it today.
I suppose I could type up some more recipes for the cookbooks. I'm almost finished with the typing and the layout is pretty quick. Now I just need pictures...
Did I mention that the photographer from our wedding finally sent us the album-proof the other day? It looks really nice and hopefully we'll have our wedding album by the end of August. Won't that be nice?
