I am not talking about the kind of shots that are alcohol-based and so commonly mixed with jello. Oh no. I am talking about the kind of shots that poor, little two-month old boys must endure so that they do not contract Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Polio, or Pneumonia. Today was Henry’s first doctor appointment and I am not sure if it was worse for him or his parents! But we got through it and can live in shot-free oblivion for another two months.
It was a bit more work getting to the doctor’s office than usual because we woke up to a blanket of the white stuff. No, not cocaine. Much worse!
I love the snow. Caveat: When I can stay inside all day.
Husband’s reaction upon first seeing the snow:
I love that he lets me post these online
Husband’s feelings about conquering the snow today:
He is a valiant man, that one.
By the time we got home from the doctor’s office, it was time for lunch. I’ve been eating a steady supply of salads for the last few days. Like so many others, I am detoxing from the chocolate-covered merriment of the past two weeks.
Spinach, cucumber, carrot, broccoli, green pepper, mushroom, chick peas, walnuts, cranberry-encrusted goat cheese, with balsamic vinaigrette
For dinner, I am trying a new recipe!
******NEW RECIPE ALERT******
It is called Fakes, which, if nothing else, is just fun to say. It’s a lentil-based soup which is all we need to know. Lentils are a miracle food. I still can’t get over their nutritional profile. 1 cup cooked has 230 calories, 1 gram of fat, 16 grams of fiber, and 18 grams of protein. It’s enough to warm even the coldest Dietician’s heart. Plus they are cheap cheap cheap. I will let you know how it goes!
My goal to eat three square meals (plus dessert!) yesterday was a success! I must confess that three Hershey’s kisses were consumed post-dessert, but I was watching The Bachelor and needed ample sustenance in order to endure the desperate, beautiful, and catty women. Really, I am committing to watching The Bachelor this year because:
1. It is January. What else am I going to do with my Monday nights? Read a book? Pshaw.
2. I can text with my friend Sarah, who also watches. At one point, I was watching, texting, and nursing, simultaneously!
Will Bachelor Brad find true love this year? We can only hope
that we care enough to watch the rest of the season.
Never trust a man holding this many roses meant for multiple women other than you!
