Now You Wear Your Skin Like Iron, Your Breath As Hard As Kerosene

I still haven't taken and new pics, so digging out some recycled ones. Coadster took this of me a couple of years ago.

Sooo, today I didn't really meet my week's goal, but that's okay. I don't feel badly about taking a day off. What did I do instead? Well, I ran right after work and it was pretty nice. I'm still encountering some treacherously icy sidewalks, but I am happy in the knowledge that their days are numbered.

I also finally went to Supper Club for the first time in forever. It was hard to weigh it. On the one hand, I wanted to stay home and get things done in the kitchen and finish reading America America (I'm so close to finishing it). The other hand held the promise of cheese fries and one of the couple's 4 month old little boy. Alone time - cheese fries and cute baby. Alone time - cheese fries and a cute baby. Today I sacrificed my alone time. Lucky for me, that baby was pretty damn cute and the cheese fries were, of course, amazing.

Now, that means I still have a little time to work in the kitchen and read before bed. Who says you can't have it all?...As long as you have it in very small increments, that is.

I agree; small amounts are more satisfying over the long run.

I would've chosen cute baby and cheese fries too.. small increments is good.. So is having that alone time.. I miss having my alone time..*sigh*

Pamela said...

I gotta find a good book... glad you can have it all.

Tara said...

I think cheese fries would relieve me of my hermit-like lifestyle. But yeah that baby would have to be 100% cute, surrounded by a rainbow.

I like that...having it all in small increments! That is a great way to look at it. And cheese fries trump almost everything.

Brando said...

Cheese fries rule over everything.

I'm with you on being ready for winter to end. Had the thought, as I rode my bike home from school, that I sure hope we're done with snow for the season. But we're probably not.

Of course a cute little baby can't be expected to manage a whole kitchen, but it's about time he started figuring out how to whip up a batch of cheese fries. And maybe run a bath. Yah. I think that'd be closer to having it all.

Rel, And sometimes they're all you get...The small amount.

Mrs. I know. Me too. When Stinky used to go to her dad's, I got three alone nights a week.

Pamela, Let me know if you want any suggestions.

Tara, Ha ha. He was just that cute, but I didn't see any rainbows.

LauraB.,, I've learned to take what I can get for sure.

Brando, I agree. They beat a Royal Flush even.

Johnny, Even if it does snow again, at least we know it won't last very long.

Booda Baby, I agree. The sooner they get cracking on the cheese fries, the better.
