When Life Hands You Citrus...

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Life is handing me all kinds of citrus right now. Not just lemons! Crazy things left and right, I'm just trying to stay sunny!

Last weekend was awesome. I’ll give the play by play.

Friday night we met a bunch of friends at DuClaw for drinks and dinner. I was worried about eating here because the menu looked difficult. I ended up getting turkey on a pretzel roll with steamed broccoli. I sampled two bites of appetizers. I didn’t eat any dessert. It was a lot of fun though! Everyone came over to our place afterwards but I zonked out on the couch. Story of my life.

Saturday it SNOWED. I got my hair cut and colored. BF and I went out to dinner and went over my coworker’s house for some drinks. They live super close by which is great because I have a new anxiety of driving in the snow since I crashed my car last winter.

Sunday was BF’s birthday! We woke up and had breakfast (they made him a special super fancy hot chocolate!) and then I surprised him with his birthday massage. He had never had one so he was pretty nervous, but he REALLY loved it and said the masseuse was very good. We went down to Annapolis and the waterfront and took a nice long walk. I got him some special chocolates and we sat by the water so he could eat them. We finished the night at his favorite German restaurant. He said it was the best birthday ever!

Monday we slept in and then headed down to the beach. The three hour ride took almost 5 hours because a gas station caught fire and they shut down the main road. We had literally the entire hotel to ourselves. We drove up to the Dogfish restaurant and had an AMAZING dinner (I did not count calories… but we hadn’t been to this place in 2 years so I think that is fair!). We came back and swam in the indoor pool and hot tub. Our suite was oceanfront and we slept with the sliding door open with the waves crashing right outside. It was awesome!

Tuesday… oh Tuesday. We had breakfast before my court date and I was chewing a piece of bacon (first mistake!) and must have bit down too hard or awkwardly because I’m fairly certain I cracked a molar. I have an emergency dentist appointment today… woo. My court date (long story short) went as I wanted. I got a PBJ and no points. Now I just have to be extra good for a year! I had never been to court before and it was an interesting experience to say the least. We hit a lot of traffic coming home too so I didn’t exercise or eat too well again.

Speaking of traffic – BF and I had a lot of time to talk about a lot of things in the car. One of them was my career. I’m starting to feel pains pretty hardcore now with work. It is trickling into my home life and I hate how it affects me. I’m feeling underappreciated, stuck, and just generally unhappy. I think I may have chosen the wrong line of work. I’m having some sort of quarter life crisis and really wanting a change. I have started doing some research and I am investigating options in an entirely different direction. That being said – any teachers out there?! Have any info about teaching for me?! I’d really appreciate it!

After all of this… I LOST .2 lbs. I haven’t exercised in a week or really been eating all that well. My body has a mind of its own sometime! Hopefully I can get out for a run tonight! I feel like I need some cardio blood pumping action! And hopefully my tooth isn’t too busted… I am not a fan of dentists and I pass out when I get needles so I’m sure the rest of today is going to be a lot of fun lol.

Anyways I have to hit the trail to the dentist soon. Three weeks until Thanksgiving – crazy!

    Sounds like a great weekend...and good for you for having a plan and attempting to stick to some healthy options. It is hard when you have that many dinners out at restaurants, but it sounds like you still got to partake in the special occasion and make some practical choices - BONUS!

    Sounds like a mostly fun weekend trip! Wonderful birthday gift for the BF. I have actually rented a massage table from my massage therapist before and taken it down to the beach hotel and given my husband a massage because he's so uncomfortable going in for one. It was a nice treat.

    Have a great weekend, and good luck with that dentist appt.

    Sounds like a great weekend! You should ask for some laughing gas before the needles to calm you down.

    All kinds of citrus...you can make fruit punch!!

    First of all, congrats on the 2lbs! That is awesome!! Remember, even if you aren't going to the gym you are still getting exercise just by walking around and cleaning the house.

    Sorry about the snow. What a mess the northeast has become! Hope driving conditions aren't too difficult. Good luck at the dentist, too!! Hope it's not serious.

    Also, what are you looking to teach? I have a friend on here who is a teacher and I am sure she's be happy to talk to you. Her username is KAR828. (you can find her listed under my friends.) Even though you are frustrated now, the important thing is that you are taking action! You realized that you need a change and you are doing the necessary research and you are investigating your options! That's great!!
