Did you know it’s my birthday in a week? That’s right, I turn 27 on the 24th.
On one hand I don’t feel like it’s been a year since my last birthday and on the other I can’t wait for it to get here. I’m just so sick of myself lately! I talk to myself in my head like a crazy person like JD and in the past month I’ve head-said “when am I going to grow up?” at least a million times.
I had big plans to work out this morning and instead I stayed up past 2:30 reading a book. And then when I got up at 10 I was almost late to work because I stayed in bed to keep reading. I love that I’m an obsessive reader, I don’t want to ever change that about myself, but I wish I didn’t always feel like I’m not taking care of business.
I have a great life so no year is really ever a bad year, but 26 was definitely not one of my better years. I didn’t cook and clean to my full potential. I didn’t maintain my relationship with the husband to my full potential. I didn’t work out to my full potential basically at all. I didn’t do schoolwork to my full potential. I didn’t blog to my full potential. And when I try to think “just what the hell was I doing all year?” I have no answer. I’m tired of feeling complacent!!!
Basically, tl;dr – I’m looking forward to living up to my potential as a 27-year-old. And living up to my full potential during the next week, because almost-27-year-olds don’t need to wait for some magical start date to clean their apartments.
Now that I’ve ranted, this will actually be a short post. I put in a new retainer last night and that put a major crimp in today’s eating. I brushed my teeth this morning and then kept my retainer in full-time until 7:30. When I left work I had a sore mouth and a growling stomach. F’real Coffee Frozen Cappuccino to the rescue.
It wasn’t very good but it met all of my current needs (cold, soft, has calories) so I drank it.
Adam made me a bowl of green grapes when I got home.
And I made myself a big plate of eggs for dinner.
1 tsp evoo
~ 1 cup frozen corn
big handful baby spinach
2 sliced green onions
2 sprinkles salt
4 dashes Green Tabasco
2 large eggs
Thankfully my eggs were easy to chew and tasty to boot.
