Snippets

Because it’s about how much brain power I have lately.

***

Reason being: The kid is *finally* out of school–his last day was last week, which seems really late. However, we’re all missing school already, as I suspected might be the case. I’m not super comfortable in the SAHM role, and the kid much MUCH MUCH prefers the structure & stability of school. We’ll do a couple of camps, and we have some family visits planned, but…oof y’all, it’s got the potential to be a loooooong summer for everyone involved.

Our 10 year anniversary was last month. It wasn’t the celebration we had envisioned for so long (someday Italy, someday), but we were able to spend some time, just the two of us, thinking back on the past 10 years. It seems bananas that it’s already been 10 years, and that it’s only been 10 years. This year has been BY FAR the hardest of our marriage, but there’s still no one in the world I’d rather have by my side in the good stuff and the crappy stuff.

***

Speaking of crappy stuff, I’m still looking for work. Unemployment benefits ended last month, which sucks, & I wrapped up my last existing freelance client a few weeks ago, so I’m just in the search search search mode. I’m working w/a few recruiters, and I even had a really good interview today (though I’ve learned not to get my hopes up), so hopefully something will turn up soon.  In the meantime, if you know anyone looking for a marketing pro, send ’em my way!

Oh, and may I just say, THANK GOODNESS for N.C.’s business.

We’ve changed up some of our eating habits, after some not fantastic cholesterol numbers a few weeks back (based on the amount of butter we were going through before, it really was time for a change). There’s a lot more to it than that, but it’s been good (and eye opening) to reevaluate things. I’ve been slowly but steadily losing weight, and I’m starting to get into a groove of what works and what doesn’t (though I’m still working on it).

In that vein, if you’ve got any really exceptional fish, vegetarian, or low saturated fat recipes hanging around, please share!

***

Speaking of, you should really make these sweet potatoes (I recommend sprinkling with a little bit of cotija cheese) and these black bean tacos (I throw in some fresh jalapeno & a splash of liquid from some pickled jalapenos instead of chipotle powder. But it’s not necessary). But maybe not together. Or, you know, you do you, I’m not the boss.

We’re reading Harry Potter (the illustrated version) with Jackson right now, and oh it’s just the best best best. I’m convinced at least 1/3 of the details are going over his head at any given time, but I don’t even care. He’s sure Hagrid is the nicest person ever, and that Malfoy is SO NOT NICE, and he is convinced that Snape is the MEANEST (we’ll have to come to terms with Snape’s complications in time kiddo, but for now, you’re right, he’s just the meanest teacher ever), and yep, sharing this with him (even if he’s not getting ALL of it) is just the best.

Congratulations! Our number is 12, but this is exactly what Mr. Sandwich and I say to each other all the time.

I have a Veggie and Vegan board on Pinterest, and I need more of the black bean and sweet potato burritos that I made last year. They worked really well in the freezer; I thaw them and then reheat in the toaster oven.
