Apparently six hours of sleep is totally cool for my body. I think it had enough of being in the dark while the dark was still a bit spinny. Did I mention my three hard ciders last night during Game Night? No? Well, they existed. Then they quickly didn’t. Good game. I think my brain also had enough of unconsciously sorting through all of my feelings from last night. Serious business is serious. But at least we’re being mature and handling it. There’s no room for beating around the bush. Big kid decisions.
And then when you can wake up to a wonderful text after big kid decisions, you’re doing something right. :3
I was going to roll out of bed and go to Wal-Mart this morning bright and early. Then after the morning interweb duties, I realized I hadn’t eaten. Then I realized my dishes weren’t done yet. Then I realized my phone wasn’t charged. Then I wanted to talk to my mommy. So I didn’t get out of the house til after noon. Still only ate a piece of chicken. I went to Wal-Mart down the road first. I spent a good half hour staring at the rows of ribbon available. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do with my costume so I didn’t know what I could get and how to use it. I also wasn’t planning on buying anything today regardless. Savin’ dem dollas! Thaaaaaaaanks, enormous central government. Not touching that anymore because I’m not in the mood to be pissed.
I didn’t see any fringe thought. I did however see some really good jewel options. I’ll come back. I went to Family Dollar after and couldn’t find anything worthwhile. Same thing Dollar Tree. At least they had some beads I could probably cut up and paint for cheap. I clearly have planning to do before I run out and purchase things.
I went on a friending spree today as well. Had to find my burlesque ladies! I want to host a Bedazzl-In. (Get it? Bedazzling?) The ladies come over, we eat, drink, and make magic with fabric, jewels, and sequins. I wonder if 8 of us could fit in my apartment. I’m sure we could make it work. I also went on a social media creating spree. So my persona has twitter, google, and Facebook. Boom. What’s the name? Well don’t you worry about it. Low profile. 😉
I Skyped with my parents today too. That’s always nice. Also it’s usually informative. So many decisions. I hate it sometimes. But I love talking to my parents. Then I started prepping and cooking dinner. I made my own version of orange chicken! Not totally clean. I used one of my cans of mandarin oranges to make a sauce and to cook with the seared chicken. Oh. My. God. It was so good. It was too viscous, but still so delicious. Despite the sugar already in the can, I added raw honey for the nutritional benefits, but I think that combined with the “light” syrup, combined with arrowroot powder I thought would be the actual thickening agent but really just congealed in individual clumps, it became super thick! I could barely bite into the chicken. It would just stick to my lip! But again, YUM!
I also had spinach and onions sauteed together. That was surprisingly wonderful. Did I need the cookies after? Nope. I just can’t control myself. Really, it’s bad. I should never have taken the sweets. But I went from taking four out of the bag to just two. That’s it. 🙂 And two rice crackers flavored like coconut milk.
HOCKEY! And maybe EARLY BEDTIME! I didn’t get much sleep last night. And yet I felt better today than I have in a little while now, like a huge weight has been lifted just enough off of my chest to let me get through my day with a smile. Thanks.
