My Days of Chauffeuring are Ebbing

FOOD

After my morning java, I was in a bit of a rush to make an early meeting, so my breakfast ended up being celery and hummus.

Lunch was a tofu veggie pocket at Quenna’s Raw and Vegan restaurant. I love that place, and get to where I crave her wholesome food. D keeps promising he’ll go with me, but I think he may be a little afraid. He’s not always the most adventurous eater 🙂

For dinner, I made the Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad w Grilled Tofu from Appetite for Reduction. The salad itself was good….but the tofu was great. It was spicy and awesome, and I can see just making the tofu from that recipe to put in everything else.

FITNESS

Hot yoga should be dubbed ‘yoga for sinus cleaning’. Not giving any more details than that. I imagine you already have a visual in your head that you wish you didn’t.

Several runs in the last week, and it’s felt great. I realized this week, though, that I need a new pair of running shoes. Thinking back. I think I’ve had this pair for nearly a year! Not good.

LIFE

Well, the biggest news of the past week is that my eldest daughter is now a licensed driver! As of last Friday, A is street legal. So far, so good…though I wasn’t sure how to take it when she and her brother returned from a movie on Sunday, triumphantly yelling “we’re home in one piece!”. Is she surprised by that? Does she think that I should be surprised??

She also was accepted to the University summer program she really wanted. She’s finishing up her Junior year, and many art universities have pre-college summer intensive programs. After months of research, she narrowed it down to a few, and got her first choice. It’s fashion and marketing because to quote A, “it’s not enough that I can make a pretty dress. I have to sell it too”. And there it is….a glimmer of developing adult thought processes. I’m so proud!

With A being gone for 3 weeks this summer, and M being gone for one at camp, D and are are taking R to Florida for a few days in July. I think we’re all very much looking forward to summer this year.

I am a 43 yo busy career single mom, attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free & nut-free vegan, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.

    1. It’s the only one we have. It’s funny….PETA headquarters are here. You’d think we’d have more veggie restaurants. D and I talk about the next big move we do, I get to have a pre-requisite of lots of veggie dining options.
