Uneventful evening

I was so busy this afternoon with work that I ended up working overtime before I knew it. Crazy day. I'm going to go all techno-geek for a second, the way our application is setup we have installations on both Windows and Unix. When I started really getting into computers in 1996 I was so into Unix and continued that through college. After I was laid off from a dotcom in 2001 I went into a few companies that ran strictly Windows. So my Unix skills are rusty...at best. Today I had to setup something on our Unix server. Theoretically this task takes me about 30 minutes on Windows, yeah it took me close to two hours on Unix. It really humbled me, but I figured it out on my own and hopefully next time it will only take me one hour (baby steps, I will track my horrible work stats like I track my runs).

Anyways, I didn't have time to shower after my lunch run (yuck) so I showered and got ready to leave the house for the hubs softball game and went to that to enjoy some time in the sun. I had a quick snack before we left of 1/2 cup of 0% Fage, 1/2 Kashi TLC trail mix bar crushed, 6 sliced strawberries.

When we got home I made a quick dinner since it was after 8pm. I made a quesadilla of two small, soft taco sized tortillas 1 shredded chix breast with taco seasoning, and some pepperjack cheese. I was lacking on the veggies but too lazy to really care tonight. Last week we bought this random big bottle of Mango Weizen. It is by the Trade Route Brewing Co of Seattle. I can't say the mango flavor is subtle as the website implies but it's weird, when I took a first sip I was almost grossed out but after a few seconds a pleasant after taste kicked in and I was like hmmm. Can't say I'd buy it again but it's fun to try new beers sometimes.

Ok I'm off to watch the new episode of Tori & Dean and cuddle with Cooper. Lates!


  1. It actually was quite yummy with Paul Newman's Peach Salsa. What do you put in your protein smoothie? Wonderful to hear from you and BTW, you look AWESOME!!! :)

  2. Thanks Seujan! I accidentally bought some Safeway Select Pineapple Peach salsa last night (I thought the yellow top meant Southwest Salsa oops) that sounds perfect for cottage cheese.

    My smoothies kind of rotate depending on what fruit I have that needs to be used. This week they've been looking like sludge (aka poop monster) but they taste amazing. My fave variations are:

    1 cup unsweetened Almond Breeze, 1 scoop vanilla protein, 1TB almond butter, 4 cups baby spinach, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/3 c frozen blueberries, 3-4 strawberries, and 1.5 cups of crushed ice.

    1 cup almond breeze, 1 scoop chocolate protein, 1TB peanut butter, 4 cups spinach, 1 frozen banana, 1.5 cups of crushed ice. This one tastes a lot like a peanut butter cup, which is a total bonus in my book.

    You can substitute any milk for the almond breeze, I've done soy milk and cow's milk. Just depends on what you have on hand (Bartell's had Almond Breeze on sale for awhile so I have a huge stock of it to go through).
