sleep in

i finally slept in today (until 11) and it feels good. actually i still feel a bit "out of it" but i'm sure that will pass.

yesterday i had a pretty relaxing day after my interview. i just hung around, caught up on blogs, watched "the last kiss" while i ate dinner (and after) and cleaned the grout between half of my kitchen tiles. yes, only half... it's a big job with all of that scrubbing. it involves vim which i ran out of, and a brush with super hard bristles. and lots of rinsing because vim residue is gross and chalky and surely not good for humans or animals. i can't believe how good one side of the kitchen looks now. vacation one week - kitchen grout the next... the joys of life. i am going to finish the kitchen and do the bathroom... why not? although not today.

today i am meeting my boyfriend at his new apartment and we are going to clean it since it's empty. more cleaning? wah wah wee wah! the good news is he is bringing my camera so i will finally have pictures to show! :o)

yesterday i tried my new pilates video, the 50-minute fat burning part. it is more like aerobics to jamaican drum beats with some pilates at the end. i had to do the modified moves (for seniors and people with bum pain) but it was still alright. today i am going swimming, and i better get moving if i am going to get the cleaning party on time.

yesterday for dinner i made oatmeal with a runny sunny side up egg on it. i was inspired by something i saw on Kath Eats. here is the recipe:

1/2 cup dry oats
1 egg
1 string cheese
hot sauce (to taste)
1 T fat free sour cream

make the oats as normal. while they are cooking, cut the string cheese into tiny pieces. i like to peel it into four pieces, then chop with a knife. when the oats are almost done, make the egg and leave the yoke runny (unless you are opposed to this). serve the egg on the oats (in a bowl), sprinkle the cheese and top with sour cream and hot sauce.

I'd rather help you clean your grout than eat that runny egg. haha.

Look at you all productive on your first days back. I'd be laying on the couch getting a vacation from my vacation.

Oh my. I like eggs, and runny eggs for that matter. I also like oatmeal, but that dish sounds a little scary!!

Yep i think i'd clean before i'd eat that ;0

Haley said...

Mmmm...that actually sounds good to me. I eat so much oatmeal it would be nice to have a savory variety for lazy dinners. And runny yolk is possibly the best thing ever. :)

Jen said...

*laughs* that oatmeal does sound a little "different"!

You are a CRAZY cleaning machine!!!!!!

Sara said...

welcome back! can't wait to see the pics from from your prev post sounds awesome!

I hope the waiting game for job is not too long!

So does the egg and oatmeal combo actually taste good - it is intriguing but scary.
