A Weird Day

Yeah, today was kind of a weird day. But eventually, in a good way.

The first half of it was incredibly lazy, which left part of me loving it, and the other part of me feeling rather antsy. This happens quite a bit and I get so frustrated when it does! I really wish I could just relish in the laziness and not feel like I should be doing something else. Grrrrr.

So after spending more time than necessary browsing the internet, I decided I should really get up and do something – you know, maybe shower, brush my teeth…

So first, I took care of the teeth brushing, then hopped on the treadmill with a magazine and did my 45 minute treadmill walk. I really wasn’t in the mood to work out at all, but as always, I never regret a workout. And at least it got me a little more motivated to get moving!

It also worked up an appetite for some lunch.


I used up the rest of the leftover salad from last night’s dinner, and topped it off with some extra roasted red peppers, 3 baby carrots, cottage cheese, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.


I really love adding cottage cheese to my salads. It makes ‘em so creamy PLUS an extra dose of protein.


On the side, I had a piece of heated up cornbread with a little honey butter.


I actually baked this up on Monday, using this recipe that I found a while back from Iowa Girl Eats. It’s pretty tasty!


In other news, a shower did, in fact, occur after lunch AND I actually shaved my legs for the first time in probably 3 weeks. TMI? Maybe, but oh well. Winking smile


So one of the benefits of being home this week is that I get extra time to play around with my cuddle buddy. We actually spent a good 10-15 minutes this afternoon playing fetch with his favorite toy.


Yep…he really plays fetch. And he’s quite good at it, at that!

“C’mon mom, just throw it already!”


“There we…wait, do I hear birds…?”


Yes, he DID in fact hear birds, which made me very, VERY happy. Little signs of spring are more than welcome at this point!


“Alright, that’s enough…give it back.”


“Golly gee, I really do love my mom.” Open-mouthed smile



After playing with Code-man, I did have to take care of a couple errands, including:

A stop at the post office.


A stop for some tea (Yes, TEA! Red Raspberry Rooibos tea to be exact. And it was FREE because I filled up my beverage card from Flavour Cafe. YIPPEE!) <—Aaaand, apparently I like to rhyme. Winking smile


And a little cookie baking for my giveaway winner. Smile


I may have consumed a few too many bites of cookie dough in the baking process, so I’m not quite sure what dinner will entail tonight. We’ll have to see once I get my appetite back. Eye rolling smile


So before I leave you all, I have a teensy weensy little favor to ask. Winking smile

    Much to the dismay of my husband, I’m very good at relaxing as I like to call it. haha I always have to be doing something, but I’m totally okay with grabbing a magazine for 30 minutes and just enjoying it. He gets antsy!

    I’m horrible at being lazy. Even when I am watching TV, I still have to be doing something else (like reading, on the computer, doing my nails, cooking). I am really trying to be better about being a lazy bum. Maybe I need more practice. :)

    That is such a great cornbread recipe! Love it!
    I get strangely crabby when I relax too much, too. I need to feel like I’ve accomplished something. It’s so weird, though, because when you’re in a funk like that, it’s so much harder to make yourself do something, even if you know it will make you feel better.
