Good morning! Once again, I am impressed with myself for blogging this early. I love to write and keeping this blog is a way for me to exercise my writing muscles amongst a sea of diaper changes and dirty dishes, but I always feel a bit anxious until my daily blog entry is written. Weird, eh? By writing this early, I can also spend the rest of the day checking my “site stats” to see how many people have read my words. Thankfully, there are usually more than seven 😉
Yesterday, I was successful in my attempt to eat real food (Enough with that fake food already!) Having the homemade soup and healthy banana bread kicking around was a big help. I think I need to bake more “healthy” baked goods. Less oil, more applesauce, I say! (You do know that applesauce can substitute for oil in baking? Best discovery ever!).
For breakfast this morning, I had a slice of the healthy banana bread with some homemade cherry jam on top (not homemade by me; homemade in someone else’s home!), along with a fruit salad consisting of orange, pineapple, and grapes.
I will probably get hungry soon since this breakfast is lacking in protein. Maybe I should hard boil some eggs as a preventative measure.
While perusing one of my favourite websites yesterday, Jezebel (previously noted as one of my favourite time wasters, too!), I came upon this commercial for an item called — I kid you not — “Forever Lazy”. Take a look:
I thought for sure this was a joke, but I think it’s real. So many things whirl through my mind after watching this:
2. The phrase “sad sack of potatoes”
3. George Constanza wanting to dress entirely in velvet
Now I am a huge fan of all things expandable and comfortable, and, in fact, have yet to wear anything other than yoga/stretch/jogging/sweat pants since the birth of Henry, but even I must draw the line somewhere. Do you think we are just kind of “giving up” as a society?
My mom always talks about life in the 1950s and early 1960s. Mind you, things were far from perfect then, but she said they would actually dress up to go out shopping, complete with white gloves and high heels. These days, it’s common to see people wearing pajamas at the grocery store. I am all for doing what makes you happy and not caring what other people think, but something about this “lazy phenomenon” makes me cringe just a wee bit.
What do you think?
