Random Friday – Our Neighbors Love Us, Very Bitey, & Kickoff To Birthday Week
Random #1: I am so excited to have the weekend OFfffffff
The last 2 weekends were spent working with Torrance. He semi “owns his own business” not really, but kind of and it is a lot of work (but not complaining!)
Anyway, he had some changes (good ones) and he got a new tool truck which we have been working on constantly to get it stocked, etc. Last saturday we put 9 hours in, and Sunday we put in 8. And the weekend before was mostly spent doing the same. And the weekend before that we went to the convention in Myrtle Beach, which was mostly work and no play also.
So on this glorious weekend, while we are not working – I plan to do some serious veggin’ not gonna lie.
Oh… that sort of brings me to this next one….
Random #2: Our neighbors love us.
So the new truck that he got for work… is a lot bigger than the one he had before.
Yeah, so big that he had to park on the sidewalk. Hey, at least it is the END of the sidewalk and not in the middle where people will be walking?
Seriously, our neighbors probably love us. Not to mention we are supposed to have 2 vehicles and including this monster we now have four (temporarily). We are like the Clampets, no big deal.
Random #3: Funny
This makes me laugh for some reason.
“He doesnt answer to anything – HE’S VERY ANGRY.” Haaaaaa.
Random #4: And this is cool….
Kalee shared this on Instagram the other day (I am not sure the exact source though!)
It refers to different things you can eat to detox different organs/parts of your system.
Notice “sweet potato” under Pancreas? I should definitely have a nice clean Pancreas now.
Speaking of which…..
Random #5: Welp, I made it 5 days through the food detox.
Well, I made it 5 successful days (without any more chocolate or oranges). At training on Wednesday night my trainer finally took my threats to throw sweet potatoes at his house seriously and he agreed that I could replace the sweet potato with Quinoa at times.
Halelujah. So I had 3 meals looking similar to this yesterday:
Weird… I dont know who put that little piece of dark meat chicken there?
So yes, I am on day 6. However I moved onto “phase 2” – the phase where I can add things like fruit, fish, eggs, etc. Basically I really still have to limit sugar, refined carbs, and dairy.
But I ate oats with raisins this morning and it was like heaven.
Random #6: BIRTHDAY WEEEEEEK!
My birthday is next Friday, which means today officially kicks off the beginning of my birthday week. But since my birthday is on a Friday that will be my birthday weekend… so it will be more like birthday week +2.
Random #7: Better get your bread and milk…
I hate talking about the weather, mostly because I grew up in Alaska where every year its the same story yet people still bitched/moaned/complained/nonstop every time it got to 30 below zero which is a given some point in the weather, yet you still always had to hear all about it (like you want to be reminded it is effing cold as shit outside).
But anyway, here in good old NC we are supposed to get snow here again today (it is snowing now actually) and coming from somewhere where snow and winter is the norm, it is crazy being somewhere where it is not the norm. It is very different… to say the least.
People here are crazy. Buying up all the bread and milk and batteries like it is a natural disaster because we are getting an inch of snow that will melt tomorrow.
I know its not their fault, but geez lou-eez.
Okay, rant over.
- Are you having “wintery” or colder than normal weather where you are?
- Tell me a bad neighbor story – something your neighbors (or past neighbors) do that drives you crazy. (Unless you happen to be one of our neighbors, then please dont complain about the tool truck on the sidewalk and 4 vehicles that we have, thanks).
I love the guy that lives below us, he is sooo nice, except his daughter has this vicious Pomeranian (seriously, Kona is terrified of it) that barks (I mean yaps) non stop all the time. I dont hear it from inside my apartment (thankfully) but they leave their window cracked so if you are outside you hear it like crazy. If your dog nonstop-barks, why would you leave your window open for everyone to hear?
