If I Marry a Potato, Am I a Bigamist?


Everything has been leftover related for the most part.  I’ve done no shopping (a sort of goal of mine…to actually eat up the food in the house), and it’s been nice!

I’ve eaten the leftover Mac N Trees as well as doing the tofurky wrap thing again, which was totally awesome.

I had a business lunch yesterday (where the vendor pays), and we ended up accidentally at a Thai place, which I never complain about.  Free Tofu Green Curry?  Yeah….okay!

My favorite thing had to be a mid-afternoon baked potato.  I hadn’t eaten in several hours, but planned on running before dinner.  I needed something quick, and I didn’t have any bananas or bread or anything that I would consider a quick pre-run snack.  So I popped a potato into the microwave, and noshed on that.

I flew through my run.  Like…bottomless energy, faster than normal pace, smile on my face the whole time sort of run.  I love potatoes!!

Dinner was a grilled tofurky kielbasa (D’s become the wicked grill master lately), which I ate with sauerkraut and some baked beans.  Not gourmet, but still yummy.

I was in my jammies and about to do dishes and bake cookies, when I got an SOS from one of my very good friends.  So…I threw on some jeans and performed a friend intervention.  After a beer or two (and an onion ring or two), I took her home, and then came home myself.  I love having good friends who are always there for me, so I of course will always be there for them too.


First of all – I did the strength training DVD again.  Yep, that’s twice in one week.  Be amazed (because I sort of am!).  I actually intended to do it Sunday, but the errands D and I were out doing ended up taking 5 hrs, and we were just gone all bloody day.  So Sunday turned into a rest day, and I had to make up for it on Monday.

After the DVD, I drank some soymilk and then worked with R on her homework.  My intention was to run later in the evening, but D was out Xmas shopping, so I ended up going for my run while he was out.  If I hadn’t, it would have been well after dinner before I had the chance.  This way, I was back and showered before we ate.

Like I mentioned earlier, it was an amazing run.  Everything about it felt great (except the areas where there were no street lights and I couldn’t see the ground I was running on!).


This past weekend was really nice.  D and I were talking about how much we both really needed such an amazing weekend.  We spent a lot of time together as a family, watched some movies, ate a LOT of food, and really just chilled out.  Sunday was a bit hectic, but that’s not a bad thing either really.

I’m nearing completion with the Christmas shopping!  I anticipate being done by the end of this coming weekend.  The big gifts for the kids are done, most of my family, and I got D’s, which I’m excited about.  I do have a few more things, but mostly, I’m really happy with the progress.  I am never ever done this early, and usually pay tons just to ship gifts since I get them so late in the game.

Well, I need to head out for work.  I meant to write this last night, but with my unexpected plans, it was way too late by the time I got home.  So who knows…maybe we’ll get another two-fer post today!

I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.
