Long story short, we got a sitter for last night so we could attend a friend’s birthday party. There was this magical drink called a “Yacht Club” made with vodka, lemon, cucumber, and some magical fairy dust. I lost count somewhere around 3. So it’s been a slow morning.
But we arrived at the birthday party prepared.
In my family, we like to give stupid cards. Bonus points if it’s a monkey card, but in a pinch you can get away with an obnoxious children’s card.
But THIS one came with a free princess crown, which Hulk was kind enough to model. Great success!
Oh, it was kind of dark in the bar.
Anyway, I might as well recap the rest of the weekend as I procrastinate on going for a run.
On Fridays I like to grab an indulgent breakfast to kick off the weekend. This time it was a Specialty’s blueberry coffee cake. SO not paleo. In case you weren’t sure, with all the fluffy, crumby, brown-sugary goodness.
Lunch was a quick sandwich that Hulk packed for me. Normally I don’t do sandwiches, but Hulk did the shopping this week and bought one of those 2-ft subs from Safeway to lunch with. We were out of salad greens, so it had to do.
After the coffee cake, I really wasn’t feeling a huge French roll. I tossed half of it and just ate the meat and cheese.
We had a friend over for dinner, and I made this sort of slap-together chicken marinara bake. Then I drank a bottle of wine, did some drunk blog reading (sorry if I wrote a stupid comment on anyone’s post Friday night) and went to bed. Woot.
Saturday Squishy and I had a mommy-and-me date. I fueled up with some coffee and coconut milk.
And we checked out the Children’s Creativity Museum across the street. I had been meaning to check it out since we moved here since they do a 10:30 little tyke class for 0-2 year olds on Saturdays. That usually happens during Squish’s naptime, but Saturday he was pretty amped and didn’t want to go down, so I decided to pack him up and go for it. It turned out to be a great idea. There was tons of probably-won’t-kill-himself activities with plenty of supervision so I could just turn him loose. He spent the first 15 minutes running around like a maniac, then he settled on some giant blocks and foam noodles.
Yeah, I ended up taking the pool noodles away from him because he kept trying to eat them. I found him chewing on a huge chunk of neon pink foam as we were leaving. But it was still a lot of fun and he had a great time.
Then we chilled out at home for a while.
Squish found a new reading nook.
I made another throw-together lunch trying to use up the last of the veggies and open cans in the fridge.
Ground beef, canned tomatoes, carrot, mushroom, coconut milk, curry, cumin, and some parsley for garnish. Not bad, sort of turned out like a Thai beef curry.
Squishy napped, Hulk and I watched a movie, then we got ready to head out to the party.
I had a quick carrots and AB snack. Duke wanted in on the action.
Our babysitter came and Hulk and I went out for sushi before meeting our friends at the bar. We went to 25 Lusk in SoMa. I drank a lot of vodka. It was a good night.
I’m still putting together a maybe Attack List for today. In my head it goes something like this:
- Run 4 Miles
- Grocery Shop and Meal Prep for week
- Make bed/pick up bedroom
- Cook roast for dinner, avoid drinking because I’ve had enough for a weekend
- Pack lunch and work bag for AM/lay out work out clothes
In reality, it’ll probably end up like this:
- Watch Season 3 of “Archer”
- Procrastinate until Hulk goads me into running 4 miles
- Order pizza for dinner, drink a bottle of wine because it’s too damn tasty
- Panic tonight at 10:30 because I really want to go to bed but I have no clean gym clothes for the morning, the kitchen’s a mess, and I don’t have any food ready for tomorrow’s lunch.
And now, some coffee.
