I was only home for a few days before another brief work trip.
While home had tofu green curry, a breakfast salad from Whole Foods, baked a loaf of bread, and made a rice and broccoli casserole.
Then it was off to Chicago for a quick overnight trip. Stopped for java at Stumptown Coffee before my meetings, and then had lunch at Sunda after, which consisted of sake, spicy edamame and vegan ramen.
Dinner that night was a group affair at the Little Goat Diner. They did make me vegan eats – I just wish they were good. I feel badly, because I could tell they really tried, but I just didn’t enjoy the meal. The company, however, was amazing, so that more than made up for it. And I was still full enough from lunch that it wasn’t a big deal to largely skip dinner.
The event had no vegan breakfast mains, which isn’t surprising. I had fruit and cashews, which was totally fine. Munched part of a Clif Bar too.
Lunch was a taco bar, which I really liked. Easy enough to make up something tasty.
Then it was back home! I grabbed Thai, but not at my usual place and got Tom ka and pad Thai, both with tofu. And since R and I were the only one’s home for dinner last night, so we went to YNot for some Italian yumminess.
Nothing in Chicago, but runs and a trip to the gym while home.
I got home from Atlanta fairly late last Sunday night. Monday I spent some time with my guy before taking Luna to the vet. We’re trying probiotics, thinking the antibiotics killed off all the good bacteria in her belly, causing her poop issues. Fortunately, she’s still eating, drinking, playing, and stealing my spot in bed!
I worked from home on Tuesday. R didn’t have school, so it was nice to spend the day, even though most of mine was at my desk, with the exception of going to vote! Then it was cooking, martini’s, packing and heading to bed for a morning flight.
Chicago was cold. Like grossly cold, and for that reason, I’m not looking forward to heading back in a few days! Ugh. Otherwise the trip was great. Was part of an Innovation “bootcamp” with several other organizations for a day of sharing what we’re each going through in building innovation programs as well as sharing best practices. I really enjoyed it and met some very groovy people.
Got home late on Thursday night, and then to the office for meetings on Friday. This weekend will be all about school and cleaning and kids before I had to Chicago again on Tuesday! At least this time I’ll get a chance to see family.
