That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it."

13 hr workday and gave an awesome presentation tonight. Arrived home flying high. Then had an AWESOME giggly phone conversation with the boy. He’s definitely coming this weekend and I’m SO excited.
squeeeeeeee. Live for the now? Check!
Although I liked a few folk pretty well
Love must be vaster than my smiles or touch
for brave men died and empires rose and fell
For love, girls follow boys to foreign lands
and men have followed women into hell
In plays and poems someone understands
there’s something makes us more than blood and bone
and more than biological demands
For me love’s like the wind, unseen, unknown
I see the trees are bending where it’s been
I know that it leaves wreckage where it’s blown
I really don’t know what “I love you” means
I think it means “don’t leave me here alone"

Mug expression accurately represents how I’m feeling about overnight oats lately. Love how easy it is. Love how filling it is. Today I topped with honey and some granola. This was my go to breakfast back when I was successful at weight loss.
If you’re curious: 1/3 cup rolled oats, 1/3 cup greek yogurt, 1/3 cup and an extra splash of almond milk. Mix and put in a covered container overnight. Eat in the morning!
There are tons of ways you can spice it up: top with PB, honey, or granola. Use a flavored greek yogurt. Use chocolate almond milk. Add fruit.
I really need to live for the now, right now. Because it’s fading. I can feel it and the doubts are creeping in. Maybe it’s because there’s an expiration date on this thing so maybe we’re both subconsciously pulling away in preparation? Or maybe we’re both just busy. Or maybe we’re getting bored. Or maybe this was just how long it was meant to last. Or maybe this is all just in my head because it’s been almost two months since we’ve seen each other.
Perhaps this weekend (if it works out) will rekindle something, but if it doesn’t I need to be ok with that. I need to enjoy it now. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the words I have tattooed on my body for times like this: que sera sera.
Awesome sweaty gym workout … then I got lazy and used the drive up ATM for a deposit … And it ate my stinkin check. SERIOUSLY. 30 minutes on the phone with customer service later. Ughhhhh.
This shit only happens to me.
Overnight oats in an almost spent almond butter jar (please don’t waste your nut butter people, do this instead!) with a huge cup of black coffee.
That was the fastest that doctors office has ever taken me! It was also the fewest tubes ever in a blood draw (only 3). I’ve had upwards of 14 at once. I love to watch. I’m a nerd. Or a freak. You decide.
I have fasting bloodwork in the morning and knowing that doctors office I won’t get it drawn until lunch time.
The thought of missing breakfast makes me too sad. I guess I’ll just “sleep-in” until my appointment … to avoid that awake and hungry feeling for as long as possible.
