A post a day..

Last night I enjoyed an entire evening to myself..I cooked an amazing(ish) dinner of sauteed almond zucchini and very green chicken fajitas (recipe's will be provided at the end!!) I even watched a great movie I had never seen before!( Thanks Rosa:D) It was fantastic...but a bit lonely..hmm

That was random..


I have decided to post once a day at work..to give me something to look forward to....we'll see how long that lasts.

Tomorrow I am going to something I have never done before..


and in honor of this brave decision, I think I'll make a couple of lists( love my lists!)

I will.

Drink water

Eat fruits and veggies with at least one meal (shouldnt be too hard..)

Take the stairs (two at a time!)

go to bed early

Drink water

I will NOT.

drink coke

drink coffee

eat fast food for lunch

take the elevator for any reason

I know it doesnt seem ambitious..but for someone like myself who makes one or two sonic trips a day, eats fast food for lunch at least 4 time a week and never ever EVER drinks water..( seriously never) its pretty big. we'll see how that goes

in other news..I bought this really cool necklace yesterday

aand ...at approximately 11:10 this morning...*sigh*

my necklace turned into a lovely collection of small gold strands..

oh well. thats what I get for spending money I shouldn't spend.

Recipe's as promised

Sautee'd Zucchini

Pointless Rambling...

This is difficult to start..I have more than one topic to "blog" about ...hmm. Let's start with lunch

1.How to enjoy eating lunch alone

don't be fooled by the title of #1. I am not going to explain how to do this. Actually quite the opposite...I'm asking you..BEGGING you to give me tips on how to enjoy this awkward silent and absolutely too-short hour in the middle of my workday.

right now my routine is..

get in my car

drive to whatever fast food restaurant i can handle that day

drive to a park

eat in my car...listen to music..stare blankly out the window

continue sitting..in silence..staring...

drive back to work ( or happy hour at sonic..one of my worst habits)

sit at my desk. stare blankly at the screen for another 4 hours.

good grief that makes me sad. Im not much of a sit-and-do-nothing kinda gal. I need to be busy..constantly. hate boredom. hate monotony ..

SO- if anyone has any suggestions PLEEEASE PLEASE share!

Today I did clean out my car during my lunch break..this was slightly satisfying.

2. What in the world..

am I doing with my life?? My life right now does not reflect me at all. I work in a coorporate environment where I do ..well...not much away from my computer..I spend most of my time during the week either at work or watching tv or eating...or sleeping ..

its just ..sad and frustrating. I need some sort of creative outlet..but I can't seem to get into things like knitting or reading anymore. Honestly, what I think I need is ..singing . yes. choir. voice lessons. rehearsals, sectionals, performances, tours..I miss it. like craazy..it gave me a release, a feeling of self-worth to be a part of something- and the music made me happy in my heart:) Unfortuntaely i feel like i have lost access to that world here in lovely NWA. Maybe I should find a community choir..but I really...have never heard of one. I could always start one..anyone interested;)

or maybe a jazz band. I still like that idea

Anyway! I am very thankful for my job. its not difficult, its a great environment, great people, it pays well..its just not me. obviously;)

I miss these guys!
