It's the weekend and it's been a while since I've done some free writing for the blog, so I decided that today I'll be linking up with my girl Jaime of Love, Jaime.
So - here goes:
We just ate leftover Papa John's for lunch.
The child has been on the computer pretty much all day.
Yesterday we did a 5K and after that we were both exhausted. That gave me the right to order Papa John's for dinner AND for us to have the leftovers today. Possibly tomorrow, too.
But I did put a crockpot filled with veggies and veggie broth up at around noon in an attempt to make some sort of vegetable soup. We'll see how that turns out.
I added beans, as I have this dream of making a veggie kale soup - only I have no kale in the house right now and no way to get some. So I may toss in some spinach towards the end of cooking. Because I'm all about the greens ... bout the greens ... *you see where that's headed, right?
My dog is whining. Just one of them. He cries a lot these days. She does, too, but not as much as he does. He's getting older. It's breaking my heart - mostly because I know that the day will come eventually and I don't know how we'll be able to handle it. And I hate the thought of losing our baby. It's been hard enough to lose our feline fun-babies over the years. And this? This is unthinkable.
Even when I yell at him.
Which I'm doing more of lately, in that I have to raise my voice, because I think he's losing his hearing a bit. Which is not fun. Poor guy.
And I just had to tell my kid not to drink all of the "chocolate soda" we brought home from the 5K. See, it was a chocolate run, which was great and fun and we got Ghiardelli chocolates to bring home. And this stupid soda that tastes like Yoo Hoo - seriously - tastes like canned chocolate milk that isn't milk. You know the taste, right? Yoo Hoo brings me back ----- WAYYYY BACK.
This should be my five minute mark. I should be done.
I'm almost done. I'm giving myself an extra minute because of the pause.
I think I really just didn't have that much to say today - so this five minutes was perfection when it came to getting my butt in gear and my fingers typing.
I'm trying to do 3-4 posts/weekly to maintain motivation. I have a book review going live on Monday and I'm reading a LOT and my new Recipe Round-Up series has been kind of fun, too.
So, there you have it. That's that. That's all the news that I'm fit to write.
And on that note, at 2:46pm, my old man doggie is whining and crying again.
