It has been a couple of days since I last posted so I’ll catch you up on what has been happening over here in my little world. On Wednesday night, I took a slightly later train home and Adam took an even later train home so I was super happy that we had leftover jambalaya for dinner.
I don’t think this was your typical jambalaya recipe as it was very rice heavy but regardless… it was really good. You can’t see from the picture but it had both sausage and shrimp. When I make this dish again, I think I’ll add more veggies in. It definitely could have used more red pepper, onion and tomatoes. I am loving this experimentation with recipes.
I ended up working from home yesterday because we had to get a salt delivery for our water softener. One of the great things about having Culligan deliver the salt is that they’ll check over the softener while they are there to make sure there are no problems. Plus we bought from a local family owned business that has the absolute best customer service.
Things are kind of winding down for me at work (more about that later) so it ended up being a pretty low key day which was nice. And, because I was working from home I got to sleep in an extra 1.5 hours! What a treat. The best part of the day, though, was catching up with an old friend from college. We spent about an hour on the phone just chatting about things that happened in college and our lives now. I don’t know why I am so bad at keeping in touch with friends… I really need to make more of an effort!
Last night’s dinner was a repeat of Tuesday. Adam was quite happy when he got home.
But, for some reason, it didn’t sit well with me last night. I don’t know if it was something that I ate earlier in the day or what it was but I didn’t feel great after I ate it and I woke up not feeling great this am too. Boo! Oh well…
This mornings workout was 90 minutes on the Arc Trainer followed by 30 minutes of weights. I really wasn’t into it this morning. I wasn’t feeling well and it ended up being just plain torture. As I was going – I was trying to do a trade off analysis in my head… would I feel worse if I continued or if I got off. I decided to stay on which I am definitely glad I did but it sure felt like torture!
When was the last time that you caught up with an old friend?
