No Canoe, No Lavanderia Either

I left work last night and headed toward home instead of toward Canoe, or the lavanderia. I still wasn’t feeling great so my decision to skip an expensive (even though my boss claimed that he was going to pay for me) meal I probably wouldn’t enjoy in my condition was easy.

Today’s Personal Project
Rest, kick this shit.
Make an appointment with my tax preparer.

Today’s Daily Challenge
Add a fresh lemon or lime to your shopping list.

Lemons and limes are powerhouses of vitamin C and other antioxidants, which research has shown to be associated with reducing inflammation and preventing heart disease. The tangy flavor of lemons and limes makes a great salt substitute for people who are watching their salt intake. And a glass of sparkling water with lemon or lime slices is a delicious sugar-free drink.

Eat, Sleep
As I mentioned above I headed toward home after work. I was in no mood to stop at the grocery store, so I decided to eat something quick along the way. I stopped in at Tomatillos for a burrito, chips n salsa, and a Coke. This was my first visit to Tomatillos in some time, the last attempt was made when Tamara was in town but Tomatillos was so crowded that night we left immediately.

Last night I ordered up a brisket burrito and added roasted garlic and mushrooms to it. I should have remembered how wet Tomatillos’ burritos tend to be and skipped the mushrooms as well as ask them to leave out the rice; the burrito was decent, but not great. Tomatillos has upped their chips and salsa game since the first time I stopped in; last night’s chips were delicious and the salsa had a spicy component and contained large chunks of tomatoes.

Once home I headed into my bedroom, turned the space heater on to warm the room, and started watching some backlogged video podcasts. I think that I was asleep by 8:30pm and was up and down for the rest of the night.

I was too sick to get that one photo off my camera.

As Much As I Need The Exercise, None Will Happen Today
Because of my health I had to skip this morning’s workout.

I’m still at home and probably won’t be leaving for anything today, unless I feel well enough to head to a laundromat tonight.

I assume that I will be back to “normal” tomorrow, but I’ll probably play it safe and hold off returning to the gym until Friday.

    THANK YOU for the website of the day! My colleagues and I are getting many giggles out of it!

    bummer you aren’t feeling good – you should have gotten some chicken soup, it always helps. Mexican chicken soup is excellent too.

    I’m so not in the mood to work today, flight leaves at 7pm. I’ve got plenty of work to do, but most of it is west coast stuff, so I have a little down time right now, then I will be panicked (is that spelled right?) to get it done & get out of here.
    Allan’s parents get back tonight from Spain a few hours after us, so we are driving their van to the airport & they will pick it up a few hours later. Won’t cost them bot a few bucks to get the car. Not a bad plan….

    I left work early yesterday with a headache and sore throat, it’s not much better today. At least today I’m working from home. I have to give a presentation to a senior VP at 3:30, I hope I can pull it together by then.

    Pho would have been an excellent choice last night, that’s what we had. I hope you feel better soon.

    I finished up my taxes and submitted them over the weekend. No big plans for my refund…going to stick it in the bank for the remodel.

    Have a great trip Barb!

    As long as they can find the car, it should work out great. Remind me some day to tell the story of trying to find a car in a section of the parking lot that doesn’t exist!

    Debbie made crock pot Mexican chicken last night which I wrapped in a burrito, while she went the gluten free route and ate it straight. Tasty.

    Finally watched TAR last night. I guess if you are really smart and working really hard, you never take time to learn to swim. I can’t even imagine attempting that challenge not knowing how to swim. Wonder how much time you have from the time you learn you’ll be on the show until they start filming? Maybe enough time to take swim lessons?? Duh.


  5. Barb says:

    if our rental house has a crock pot – we might make the mexican chicken out in CA – because mexican food and margaritas are always a good idea after a day of wine tasting, right?

    it worked the last time okay with the car, but it was TJ dropping it off & us picking it up. Hopefully it will go smoothly this time.

    I just checked us in on line, I’m so ready to go……… and – this is kind of funny – we can EACH check 3 bags for free. Flying first class (with FF miles, don’t think I would spend that kind of money) and my Delta AmEx. I can bring lots of wine back if I want this way.

  6. Stacy says:

    Have a wonderful trip, Barb! And, yes, “panicked” is correct! 🙂

  7. Steve says:

    Tell Allan he has to wear long pants in first class.

  8. Yeah, good luck with that… 😉

  9. Barb says:

    he HAS to? where did that rule come from? LOL

  10. Steve says:

    I think you should try it and see how he reacts…
