As I expected, I didn’t have it in me to make much of a dinner. When I got home, the kitchen sink was full of dirty dishes and I almost burst out crying. These pregnancy hormones are killer! I love pregnancy, but this emotional roller coaster has overstayed its welcome.
In any event, I managed to stifle my tears long enough to scramble some eggs with veggies and serve them with a toasted Wheat thin. This was the first time I really got a taste of the Wheat thin (without it being overpowered by peanut butter) and they are awfully sweet! I mean, they are tasty, but bread isn’t supposed to be that sweet I don’t think…Hmmm…
Served on a side plate to give the illusion of more food!
And then I just WENT FOR IT and ate an entire half a cantaloupe. Did you know that cantaloupe is infinitely tastier if you sprinkle it with a bit of salt? I speak only the truth.
And then I WENT FOR IT again and ate two low-fat brownies.
Tomorrow I will try to actually cook a meal for dinner.
I think I alluded to this before, but once work or life becomes more stressful, the desire to spend money becomes greater and greater. Well, maybe the desire to spend money doesn’t increase, but the desire to be conservative with money definitely decreases! I find myself not caring as much about sticking to my budget and watching my pennies, since I have greater concerns to think about now. It’s a tough deal! You make more money, you spend more money, and so the cycle goes…
I think I need to dust off my copy of Your Money or Your Life!
Well I am just proud of myself for making it through another day AND having posted all three times. Now if only I could find the energy to read some of my favourite food blogs out there…
