Random thoughts for today

1. Steve is getting blood work and an ultrasound done right now. Positive thoughts, people - positive thoughts.

2. My next food post will be the recipe (and pictures!) for homemade chicken pot pies. I made them on Sunday. Yum!

3. I was just getting ready to tell you that it is the time of year to leave all of the comfort food behind, and start taking advantage of summer eating/cooking. I mean salads and grilling and light dinners and fresh fruits and veggies...but today I feel like I'm still needing lots of comfort. So tonight I am making Shrimp Scampi...with pasta. And butter. And preferably lots of wine (in my belly, not in the scampi).

4. It's quite possible that joining a yoga class is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time. I was feeling pretty close to the end of my rope last night...shutting down and crawling in bed was about the only thing that I wanted to do, but I dragged my ass out of bed (yes - I went straight home from work and took a nap) and went. By the time I got home, I was feeling 100% better. More calm, centered, positive, in control. I just wish I could maintain that daily (without having to spend the money and time at the yoga center every single day).

5. I am hungry. All I want to do is eat. And cook. And eat. Clearly this is my outlet. I wonder if my life is ever drama free (ha ha ha!), if I would even want to cook??? Probably :)

6. Right before I was walking out the door to go to work this morning, Kempton barfed. Inside the house. On the floor. I heard the gagging and raced across the room to let him outside before he blew, but just like slow motion, I didn't make it. Now I feel less hungry. Thank you for letting me share.

7. Please let 4:30pm be here soon. Amen.
