Friday Lunch post!

Last night my sister and I went to the painting class.

It was quite nice.  I don’t particularly like my painting, but I still enjoyed it. I wasn’t really in the mood to paint. Now that I’m looking at it, I would make a few changes and like it much better. It’s a shame I threw all my acrylics away!  It’s almost harder when someone else is telling you step by step what to do.


Didn’t get home until 22:00 so I ended up eating a giant piece of Red Velvet cake with Cream cheese frosting and filling for dinner. lame.

I have rounded the corner and am now counting down with despair to the end of my vacation. I don’t want my vacation to start because I don’t want it to end. I oh so dearly wish I was rich and could just give up this working thing and travel as much as I want.


This stuff is SO good! I don’t seem to be having any problem with the carbonation either. So, yay me!

I didn’t actually bring any lunch with me to work. I’ve been living on mostly slimfast and caramels during the day for the last week or so. I just needed to give my digestive system a break. This is the first time I’m had slim fast regularly and I have to admit I feel pretty good.  I use to use different nutritional shakes when I was unable to eat enough real food to get any kind of good nutrition, Ensure, Balance, those kind of things. But I think I like the SlimFast better, rather than just not making me hurt, it seems to be speeding up the healing. I just switched from SlimFast to the Costco version of slimfast, same dif though right? Today I really want to eat everything in site. I guess I’m glad I don’t have a lot of food with me! I’m eating all the scraps and snacks I have around the office.

Example of a passive insult: You spend a few minutes talking about a subject. 30 minutes later the person you were talking to tells you about their discovery of the same facts that you told them 30 minutes earlier.

This happens to me so often by more than one person that I really have to assume that I am the worst at babbling on about things that no one cares about so people have gotten use to just tuning me out. I find myself in certain circumstances just not speaking. Why bother if the other person doesn’t really care what you’re saying?

  1. “I don’t want my vacation to start because I don’t want it to end.”

    So many times I have felt exactly like that. Why is it so hard to live in the moment?

  2. So you don’t paint at home anymore?

    I wonder if the milk in slimfast would bother me if I took a lactaid tablet. Sometimes I get up and can’t eat but then I overdo it later.

    My great aunt once told my cousin that is how you get men to do what you want. You talk about something and then let them get the idea in their head. They (not really acknowledging you spoke about it) will come back with this great idea.

    I think if it is an important person in your life you should confront them but if it is someone you don’t really care about, yes, maybe silence is just the way to go.

    But I could see myself doing that and not meaning it as an insult, I just have a bad memory and am easily influenced.

    I am excited for you and your vacation. I hope you can really relish being in the moment.

    1. No, I don’t paint anymore. 🙁 If I had an extra room or two that I could keep everything set up and come and go as I pleased, maybe.
      I have to admit, I agree with your great aunt and have employed that strategy on more than one occasion in both business & personal. I also have learned that certain people in my business world will always take the opposite side of any argument,, so sometimes I may lean a little away from the direction I want them to go, just so they feel like they are arguing and winning. 🙂
      I have trouble with too much dairy. I don’t know about regular milk because it’s been so very long since I’ve had it. Two scoops of ice cream makes me a little sick, but I do it anyway. The slimfast doesn’t seem to bother me at all that way.
      I think one of my biggest offenders is sugar. I have been suspicious of this for years because I noticed that when I eat fruit quite often I get very sick. It’s something that has to build up, Fruit for breakfast, something sweet at lunch, cookie for a snack, more fruit, sugar in my tea and the next day I feel like a big bloated monster. I have read a couple of different things in the last weeks that keep referencing how sugar is one of things that can cause a big problem for your large intestines. There is just a finite amount they can digest, and if you have more than that it sits there and ferments. I know that sometimes I have large intestine issues, and sometimes small intestine. I say all this as I’m talking myself out of eating the banana sitting next to me.
      tomorrow. 🙂

Don’t leave without saying something!
