I ditched work today to hang out with my family. I was kinda having a breakdown about them last night and really needed the extra time together for my sanity.
We just bummed around and it was great! They are leaving super early tomorrow morning and I won’t see them again until October. There may be tears and I’m not a crier.
First we hung around and watched random daytime TV like Regis and Kelly. I snacked on a lot of grapes and trail mix.
Then, we went to the Nut House. Actually it was Ann’s House of Nuts I partook in many samples. It’s getting to the point where I walked into Food Lion the other day and thought, “It sucks that they never have samples here!” I am a sample addict.
We stopped at DD so my mom could try the iced coffee. They don’t have DD in CA. I got the BIG ONE. Matt took this pic of me.
Since I snacked my way through lunch with samples and trail mix I wasn’t too hungry, but around 2pm I thought I should eat something on a plate…random.
Dessert was a chocolate covered banana from the Nut House.
Oh, and I just found this pic of an open faced PB&J.I guess I ate that too
Time got away from us and around 7pm I realized I didn’t have time to make my planned dinner. Ben wanted Thai food and I had half that and half my Couscous and Chickpea salad.I am so sad about my Mom and Matt leaving. Do you guys live far away from your family? How do you deal with it? My little heart hurts
Also, thanks for the great response to the “hunger question”! I’m going through all the comments and emails and will post about it tomorrow!
