This week was nothing short of madness. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I think the easiest way to share the madness is via some snapshots…
We ate lots of sugar cookies. I finally finished icing a batch of Easter sugar cookies and I’m
slowly polishing off the entire batch. Not much thanks goes to Kris… sugar isn’t his thing so it leaves me and B with ALL of the sweets.
We celebrated small successes… like B partially ending her hunger strike. (partially.) I’ve never met a dog that refuses to eat before, it’s so strange and stressful.
I woke up super early everyday to make time for a healthy breakfast. We had some ripe avocados to use up so I started mashing avocado on toast and sprinkling salt and pepper on top…. it is heavenly. I’m officially addicted.
We fried up some ground venison, mixed it with marinara sauce, and put it on top of spinach and roasted spaghetti squash. It was delicious. Mostly thanks to Wegman’s marinara sauce. (Side note – it would have been better if I would have cooked the spinach)
Lots of wine was drank. Even though I am really enjoying the new gig, everyday is rough when you are just starting a new job. So much to learn = so much wine needed.
Leftovers were packed for lunch:
Kind bars were consumed daily.
Why is it so hard to control food intake and know what “normal” feels like when you are in the midst of a transition? I have been so hungry and so exhausted when I get home. Hopefully this weekend I can get a jump start on getting back on track. But when your entire house looks like some variation of this:
It’s hard to be hopeful that the weekend will consist of anything but organizing and unpacking. Tonight we are going out to dinner for some sushi and quality time. Have a great weekend!
