It's already after midnight, so I'm gonna post a short-for-Staci post and go to bed! Tomorrow I get to sleep in yippee!!! Cell phone is going on silent, and hubby always does breakfast duty on Saturdays. That may sound heroic, but Saturday is junk cereal treat day for the kids after a week of Mommy making them eat healthier stuff. LOL
Breakfast was an Oikos Greek yogurt, 2 turkey sausage links, and blueberries.
Lunch wasn't what it was supposed to be, but I didn't have time to cut and clean the celery and stuff last night. Ugh. I love my new school schedule, so I've *got* to do things earlier in the evening and make my sleep a priority! So lunch ended up being chicken salad made with an Arnold sandwich thin, 3 oz of canned chicken, 14 grams RF mayo, 1 hard boiled egg, and 10 grams dried cranberries. DELICIOUS! But 10 points for a sandwich? Sheesh. But it really was yummy! Also had a string cheese, 28 grams of Doritos, and grapes.
Today was our homeschool group, so I headed right out for that after lunch. I spent 2 hours with a room of 3 to 5 year old kids reinforcing number skills and phonics. WHEW!
I came home and ate a chewy bar that is much bigger than the old kind!
Then I had a banana.
Then mother-in-law came over to watch the kids so me and hubby could have a meal out alone! Love my kids, but this week was so hard. Seems like they are sooooo good at bickering and tattle telling anymore. It becomes frustrating. I needed a break!
And I knew just what I wanted. I wanted a biscuit with apple butter and this meal they had that was sirloin tips with mushrooms and onions, brown rice, green beans, and a sweet potato.
Got to Cracker Barrel and waited 30 minutes for a table. Found out they have changed their brown rice to an every day item now and it is NOTHING like the Friday night, vegetable of the day, brown rice I loved so much. :( Also found out the meal I wanted was a promo and is no longer available to order. My sweet potato was seriously tiny, too. My waitress was super sweet, but she had obvious hearing issues. She had a speech quality to her voice that let you know she had a handicap, and I talk SO FAST that she had real issues understanding me. I really did try to slow down! I would never in my life make her feel uncomfortable, but she kept not bringing me things I needed for my meal. So I felt bad and frustrated all in one but didn't want to keep asking for what I needed for fear I would make her feel bad. But she was very friendly, kind, repeated back everything you said to her to make sure she was getting it right and did a great job overall. I don't want to sound like a jerk. She did way better understanding me and getting what I needed once the crowd died down. I think all the background noise from the crowded restaurant was a hindrance for her. My brother is deaf in one ear and partially in the other, and I know he can't handle background noise.
OK... so I guess that was irrelevant. Lol I just said all that to say we got a table super close to the couple next to us, so we didn't feel comfortable talking to each other because it was like strangers were eavesdropping. LOL My meal wasn't what I wanted or had hoped for. I felt like I wasn't getting the things I needed even though I was asking for them. It was just a weird date. :( And all we did was go there and then go home because we promised mother-in-law that's what we would do. So whatever. At least I really did get to eat in silence... didn't even talk to my husband! Rofl.
I had 2 biscuits at Cracker Barrel. That wasn't smart, but my meal ended up being an actually healthy meal except for that. I didn't take pics. I'm sorry.
Got home and I headed out to Wally World with MIL. I had a very fun time basically critiquing everything she put into her buggy. The poor woman. She even put back her dish liquid because I told her she was paying a ridiculous amount and should get the other brand that had more for less money. Hahaha This time, I actually had a better date with MIL than with hubby! Rofl. That's bad.
Okay, way too long. I'm going to bed! Cooking at home tomorrow now since we ate out tonight. I have to hit up 2 stores tomorrow to finish up grocery shopping. I'm sure I'll have a full day. Goodnight! Happy weekend!!! I'm not proof reading tonight! ;)
