No more verbal diarrhea about, well, garbage. Part of my New Years resolution.(see last nights post for garbage)
Plus do more yoga, blog more about interesting things that attract more readers, potty train V, run a 10 k, spend more time with M, lose this damned baby weight, contemplate a Masters Degree, maybe get pregnant… Clearly I am setting my sights high… nothing wrong with that!
I am just getting a head start, preparing the list of ‘resolutions’ a little early. We all know how much I like to make lists.
Can I just complain about the baby weight for a minute?
It’s a son of a bitch to lose.
SON OF A BITCH. Period.
Before there is even a conversation about baby #2, this weight needs to be so last week. Let’s ignore the fact that I have been talking about another baby for EVER. And focus instead on how I am going to find time to shake this crap off.
Already I am back on the super diet. And am about to hop back aboard the exercise train. I had deboarded due to some antibiotics that I was taking that made me feel a bit funny. But that kicked that nasty cold to the curb, so I was happy to sacrifice a week of exercise for that.
So welcome back yoga!! My first class will be this Thursday night. Now it won’t be Bikram yoga. The studio is now just too far away from my house, plus now that my home owners association fees include a membership to the YMCA I have no argument to not go to ‘free’ yoga. I don’t care, I just need yoga.
I really feel like it brings some measure of balance into my life. Calms me down. Makes me slightly less spastic.
So I eagerly await Thursday night’s appearance.
And on a completely different topic, my husband made 2 litres of gravy last night.
Why you ask? Not too sure.
We were eatting left over roast from Sunday night and I asked him to go and get some dry gravy mix. Gravy in a jar creeps me out.
Anyways, he came home with 2 packages and proceeded to spend about 30 minutes sauteing mushrooms in red wine, mixing the powder and water together in a separate bowl and then slowly added it to the boiling water on the stove. You would not even believe the mess in the kitchen. It looked like he had been cooking a la Julia Child.
It was gravy!!
Anyways, if you need some, just let me know. I have about 2 litres in the fridge and am happy to share it with you…
