I had the joy of meeting my two bosses today for my new job! I was nerve wracked of course, but everything went well (thank goodness; I wasn’t sure what to expect). But I think the best part was after talking to my dad and him asking, “So, did you figure out how much you’re getting paid?”
I laughed and said, “Err…no. I’ll go back and find the offer in the announcement at some point. Otherwise, I’m not really worried.” That just tells you how much I love my job/work field; I don’t care about how much I get paid, since I enjoy it that much (on top of that, I’m not too worried since with these kinds of jobs you get free housing and sometimes free internet/cable TV so there are props to the lower salary).
Anyhow, I’m sure you’ll be hearing enough about my new job in the near future, so lets focus on other things, like de-virginizingLindsey'sVitamix this morning!!!
I am ashamed/embarrassed to say that I HAVE NEVER HAD A GREEN MONSTER/SMOOTHIE. I know, I know, how can I call myself a blogger and not have had one yet?!
Well, first of all, the blender we have at home is horrible at it’s job. Secondly, smoothies never ever fill me up; no matter what you stick in it (protein powders/pb/lots of stuff) I am never full for more than an hour. I guess I need my cereals/breads, eh? And third? I just get too darned cold from these things! I’m always cold to begin with so you can imagine how much worse it is afterwards!
Lindsey put a good number of ingredients in the mix and I couldn’t taste the spinach at all! It was definitely yummy, and to make it even better, topped it off with some Kashi Sunshine. Oh how I have missed you my favorite cereal.
I went on a run at around noon when the sun was high up and the weather at it’s warmest: around the low 50’s. I was soooo happy to feel the warm sun on my body; I mean, I ran in a pair of shorts, long sleeved shirt and a t-shirt! Anyhow, I ran about 5.4 miles in about 46-47 minutes, give or take, since I don’t have a watch (I left it at Bobbi’s when we had our sleepover…waaa!)
I was exhausted by the end of it and it was actually almost painful…until I realized that I was feeling pain all over my body from my SKIN. The winter weather has dried out my skin so bad that when I sweat when I run, I excrete so much salt that it burns all the cuts from the dryness.
!@#)($*%&$@#$)(#*&$% is the best way I can put the pain, if you get my drift.
Anyhow…work stuff took place in the afternoon and I came back to watch some Cougar Town and then DINNER!
Lindsey already had it set we were going to have Crock-Pot Soup since she would be away at work all day, and boy was it delicious! She threw in things like lentils, split peas, black beans, spinach, carrots, broccoli, corn, garlic, onions, vegan stock and lots of spices!
She also picked up somerosemary bread on the way home. I had these two pieces, time two. It was so good!
I was a tad bit hungry for dinner…hence all the bread, but not too full for my desserts (Yes, you read that right, PLURAL).
I brought Lindsey a TJ’s Care Package which included Chocolate Covered Edamame, which I got to dive into when her hubby broke open the container. I had these few…times two.
And of course Lindsey couldn’t wait any longer to finally make this in her Vitamix:
BANANA SOFT SERVE!!!
Of course topped with chocolate chips. I mean, how could a girl pass up the chocolate…right?
Lets just say, I’m in chocolate heaven right now. So it’s time for me to check out and get some rest, I have a really long day tomorrow!
