Wow…what a day! (and I say that not-so-enthusiastically…)
I was up at 5 with baby. She was ready to start her day, which meant I had to start mine. We came downstairs and I fixed the usual breakfast for myself around 5:30 – Banana Bread Oats and 1/2 cup of egg whites + 1 whole egg.
I spent the morning packing up the rest of my clothes for the move. I had a snack mid-morning (well, mid-morning for me – it was only about 8:30). I had the usual apple.
I also had an early lunch since I’d been up since 5 – leftover chicken breast with baby carrots and Sonny’ & Joe’s Hummus Galilee. The more I eat this hummus, the more I love it!
After lunch, I put myself together and went on a Starbucks/Target run. When I was sitting at the drive-thru at Starbucks, I looked back and noticed that one of the back windows in my Jeep was halfway down. Let me back up to a couple of days ago… I put the window down a bit so baby could get some air while I was waiting for the A/C to kick in. When I tried to put it back up, it went up part of the way and then made this God-awful squealing noise. The window stopped about 3 inches short of closed. “No biggie,” I thought. “We’ll just get it fixed when we get back to NH.” Back to today… That very same window slowly fell until it was eventually all the way down. It will not go back up. I can hear the motor when I press the button, but no action from the window. This is just about the last thing we need right now while we’re in the midst of moving stress and unemployment stress. We do have a warranty, but the kicker is that we have to find somewhere that can fix it by Wednesday morning, when the hubby sets off on the cross-country drive.
It really is true what they say – when it rains, it pours!Ironically, it really did end up pouring this afternoon and we had to rig up some plastic over the window. Jeeze… Can’t I catch a break?!
Anyway… I ended up turning around before I got to Target. I didn’t want to park the Jeep with a gaping window in the Target parking lot. It would have just been the icing on the cake if someone stole the stroller out of the back while I was in there; or better yet, stole the car!
I consoled myself by eating a Cherry Pie Larabar on my way home.
The rest of the afternoon was spent doing some more packing. I did take a break for food and fitness – an Orange Creamsicle Protein Smoothie and Levels 1 & 2 of Biggest Loser Bootcamp.
Dinner was quick and easy – Kashi Sicilian Veggie Pizza. I bought this one because it doesn’t have cheese (still can’t have dairy). It’s a vegan pizza with curly kale, eggplant, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, and a balsamic-infused white bean tomato sauce.
Honestly, this pizza was just ok. It didn’t really do it for me. It was lacking in the taste department. Great nutritional stats, just a little bland. I much prefer the Amy’s Roasted Vegetable Pizza.
Well…I’m off to do more packing (and perhaps throw myself a little pity party).
