If you have been following this blog for any length of time you know why this day means more to me than in years past. Why Independence Day, and Veterans day, and even the American flag means more to me now.
Cause of this guy...
He has been on my mind all day.
I had to work today too, (insert grumpy face).
However, I am very blessed so I tried to make the best of it. A LOT of other people had to work. My brother for example has been living in a field, eating MRE's and going through combat training. So, complaining, what complaining?
Anyways I had rasin bran for breakfast (aldis brand) with some coffee (in my Marine mug from Parris Island, hubby brought that to me special :)
Then I had a 100 calorie chex mix at work.
Then we got chicken for lunch. FATTY plate right there.
Ok I am seriously PMSING and I wanted to stuff my fave with everything in sight. I had seconds and went back for biscuit bites! THEN I had a 100 cal pack of cookies and a banana!
THEN we got off at 5pm, an hour earlier than expected which was nice.
I came home and for dinner we grilled steak (I sautéed mushrooms and onions) and we had taters and salad with it!
I was seriously a fatty today but Im not surprised. About a week before my period I always have like 3-4 days of eating seriously crappy and having no motivation. Then a few days before, its like I get a second wind and I want to eat 1200 calories and run for miles. Its weird but whatever.
So anyways I have been lazy all night! Thinking about my brother. Man I so took for granted having him readily available! I just wish he could come over and I could cook him another meal. Its the little things in life like that that seriously make me happy.
But for now...these two will have to do ;)
