day sixteen, 152 lbs

Hi friends! What a wonderful Tuesday!Quick recap, Sunday night was pretty amazing. You’d have to live under a rock not to know about Curiosity landing. I stayed up and watched the livestream from NASA and JPL and had a whale of a time. Hubby and puppy even sat with me during the seven minutes of terror. My poor heart was racing like crazy, just waiting for the news. I have always a love for learning, especially the planets. I blame Sailor Moon. Hubby and I started cheering when we got the news that Curiosity was safe and we eagerly waited, hoping against hope for pictures. I definitely cried a bit when I saw the thumbnails. Wow. Wow. It was so surreal, knowing that those pixels are from the surface of another planet. I was hoping for some Prothean ruins. A girl can dream, right?

Monday was EVENTFUL! Hubby had duty, so I was taking him to work in the wee hours of the morning (okay okay… seven am.) since we only have the one car right now. We chatted about adopting another doggie and decided we want to go look at the local humane societies and rescues this week. Hubby grew up with three Red Nose Pitbulls and he has wanted one of his own for years.

I was initially a little reluctant about having a pit. I’ve had cats my whole life and I was never much of a dog person. Plus, I was only vaguely aware of Pitbulls being “vicious” and wasn’t keen on them. But hubby encouraged me to look into it and told me all about growing up with his dogs. I’m a little nervous, but Pooch has definitely warmed me up to the idea. Pooch is *very* rambunctious and it can be difficult keeping up with him, especially when I have chores to do. A little sister might be just what he needs. I can see how having a buddy to play with would be really nice, especially once I start going to school. :]

Anyways, I dropped hubby off and headed home, running through my day in my head. Then some idiot decided to try and murder me. This van decided that, despite having a completely open right lane, the left lane was superior. The problem was, I was right next him, in the way. “What a bother” he must have thought, as he merged anyways. Luckily I slammed on the brakes and the car behind me was far enough away to brake themselves. I swerved a few times, and eventually got my car under control.

Holy. Shit. Balls. I was so angry and scared and surprised that I burst into equal parts tears and expletives.

Holy! Shoes!

Fishing yesterday was fantastic. I mean, only hubby caught a fish, that he had to release, but it was just such a fun time. Sure, I suck and my pole hates me, but wow! We went to Wildcat Lake and got soaked! Unfortunately it was a bit late in the day, so the fishies weren’t biting. But it was nice. We tied Pooch to a fence that extended into the water and he got some nice swimming and rolling in the dirt accomplished. The three of us made an executive decision to head to the ponds on the Bangor base around three o clock. The ponds were nice, but not shaded at all. And on the hottest day of the year… Well, we will definitely go back, but at the ass-crack of dawn.

I forgot to take photos of the actual adventure… or of my food… but I did take some of my buddy and my puppy! Said buddy wants to use my puppy for picking up ladies. HRRRRRMMMMMM. We will see!

Bro'in out

Pooch is learning how to thug it up.

Food yesterday was awesome. I only ended up eating the Oopsie Roll sandwiches and I was full for hours. I had a few pork rinds while cooking dinner, but hubby demolished my celery and peanut butter. He had never combined them before. Sacrilege.

Dinner was delicious! I had some chicken thighs that I stuffed with cream cheese, pepper jack, and chives. I rolled them in egg and crushed pork rinds and baked them with a butter-garlic-lime sauce. Hubby had potatoes roasted in the same mix on the side, I just had two pieces of chicken. It was quite scrumptious! Hubby was a bit reluctant regarding the pork rinds as breading, but it turned out very yummy. Spicy, but not overwhelming the chicken. Definitely need to get more Pork Rinds, as they are my default snack.

Not sure what is planned for today. We need to do some dishes and make a trip to the grocery store, but I’m saving my big chores for tomorrow. I plan on fasting again tomorrow, since hubby will be on duty and there won’t be any need for me to cook. Cleaning helps pass the time. Ugh, I sound so domestic. Maybe I’ll set aside a few hours where I’ll just play video games or watch cheesy true crime shows…

News wise, I found this article on almonds to be quite interesting. Calories are such an inaccurate measure of food, but it seems we are stuck with them. Still, at least I can eat more almonds without feeling so guilty! I wonder what other nuts have drastically incorrect caloric counts.

Hopefully today I remember to take photos of my meals! Happy eating. :]
