I came home last night to this in our bedroom.
Two weeks ago, Joe brought home a (basically) brand new 50 inch (?) TV from his restaurant that is going under renovations. He was so adamant about hanging it up right then and there, but luckily he waited for his friend who knows what he’s doing to come help. It’s nice not having to squint to see the channel lineup. Yes, my “20/10” vision from Lasik surgery fails me sometimes.
Anyway, I got home around midnight after a great night at work. It takes me a while to unwind, so naturally I wasn’t getting up at 7:00 with Joe. I slept a little later and inevitably felt like it was going to be a wasted day, despite having the day off from work.
I made one of my usual breakfast rotations & coffee while I read blogs and decided what the day was going to hold. I knew I had a long list but nothing really grabbed me. Then again, who really wants to do chores?
Then all of a sudden, it was “GO!”
- 1.5 hours of paperwork/QuickBooks for the restaurant
- fold laundry + do 2 more loads of laundry
- clean the bathroom, specifically the shower
- swept + dusted + clean the kitchen sink
- attempt to go through some blog related e-mails and transfer my domain
- paid some bills
- did some research for Cabo San Lucas vacation (yes!!)
- went on a CVS run for bathroom necessities
- grabbed my ACSM study guide and did some steady state ellipticaling + stretching
Oh, and in between somewhere I ate a quick snack of apples with smoked gouda and mixed nuts.
And a post workout smoothie. (frozen banana, almond milk, TJ’s very cherry berry frozen mix, & vanilla protein powder)
Ohhh the feeling of a productive day. I’m glad it went that way rather than making it a lazy one!
Joe came home from work early as I was preparing dinner. Pan seared sea scallops, sauteed kale, & farro salad with a healthy lemon butter sauce.
More on the farro salad tomorrow!
Of course, since I wasn’t prepared for his early arrival, 3 scallops was not enough for him, so he grilled some filets with blue cheese.
All washed down with some pinot noir.
Joe wants froyo now. I am super surprised (an understatement). Goodnight!
