Lunch: Sushi, cake, cherries
Dinner: Sushi, then not sushi, then cake, then steak
an easy food day. I was so busy organizing this morning that I forgot
to eat, or drink for that matter, and by the time my body protested, it
was noon-ish. I nuked a couple of frozen burritos, plopped some sour
cream on top, dumped some salsa over all of it and decided that as long
as I was in the kitchen, that I should start a loaf of bread.
the telephone rang and it was the repair shop guy. It seems that my
nearly thirteen year old car, and no, that is not really all that old
for a car, had a brake lines problem. One of the lines, of which I was
informed there are many, had completely rusted through, which is why my
brakes failed yesterday. They fixed it, but every other line is nearly
as bad. Their schedule is jam-packed and they cannot get to the rest of
them until next week, so they sent someone to pick me up and in the
process of throwing some clothes on and dipping my face in make-up, I
completely forgot about eating.
When I drove the guy back to
the shop, and since my lunch was now garbage, I decided to do the
errands that were undone from yesterday when the whole brakes thing
happened. I did not get all of them done, but I did stop at the market
for something fun to eat, which is my fall-back activity when I am too
stressed. Seems like fixing all of the brake lines...how damn many of
them are there anyway...is going to cost nearly $1500.00. Crap. All I
could think of was that I needed pie.
I settled for a slice of cake and decided that mood altering really did have to be healthier, so cherries, pluots
and an apple (for the chicken salad), a couple of steaks, on sale but
still expensive, and some sushi would have to do. Oh, soft drinks in
cans were on a great sale, so I got some of them, too. Well, I got a lot of them, but who is counting. Not me.
was so hungry that I ate half of the sushi in the car before driving
home. Then, I had half the cake slice and ate cherries until my stomach
protested. Now, cherries are a wonderful fruit, but when you eat a
couple of dozen they are not tummy friendly. However, the resulting
"effect" properly took care of my constipation problem. I need to start
taking a fiber supplement, because eating less is not lower-intestinally helpful. And, all of the soda that I bought is not going to help, either.
dinner was supposed to be the rest of the sushi/cake/cherries, but the
sushi was icky. Even one of the cats would not eat the salmon, so I
took her lead and threw it all out. However, the cake was delicious.
looked at the cherries. Then, I kept looking at them and decided that
my plumbing was juicy enough and broiled one of the steaks instead. I
just finished it, with a little help from the kitties, and it was
great. I probably should have had a salad or some greens with it, but I
am too tired. Besides, plain meat, even steak, maybe especially steak,
is great for diabetics, particularly since I ate the rest of that
Off to bed, to try to sleep, but I suspect that I will be trying to figure out how to pay the repair bill for the car (goodbye
traveling next month), and how I am going to get to and from work next
week whilst it is in the shop. Practically everyone I know is out of
town next week, vacations, and I really, really, really do not want to
walk the three-plus miles to the bus stop. Oh, god. Tomorrow, Scarlet.
