My Tuesday started with a massive headache.
This comes as no surprise. It was Tuesday, after all.
And Tuesdays are just, like, sooooo stuuuupid.
Instead of raging my way through the work day, I really tried to keep it all in check. And channeled the energy elsewhere.
We all ran and took our turns venting for 6 miles. It was therapeutic. And I felt fabulous afterwords.
Until throwing myself directly into Bulls and Cubs traffic afterwards. This left me slightly wound up again.
Luckily, there are ways to de-stress at home, too.
Comfort food helps.Or something that, in my frugality, sort of resembles it. A cheap and healthified Mexican dinner for this chick would be a quesadilla stuffed with the refried beans my roommate bought and now refuses to eat (it’s a texture thing), skimping on cheese and overloading on hot sauce. And a side of brussels sprouts to make my mother proud.
It is almost Mother’s Day, afterall.
As a side note, can we talk about how the quesadilla maker could be the greatest invention of all time?
There’s also the option to give your mind an escape.This puzzle is really coming along, kids. The roommate and I have grand plans to spend one night in this weekend in hopes of putting the finishing touches on this baby.
But I’d like to have it done sooner than later. No joke, I had a dream about it last night. My roommate had deconstructed it. At this point, that may even be considered a nightmare. 2000 pieces is no joke, kids.
Because the day was a doozy, I even went the baking route.Other than obvious reasons of loving cookie dough and the cookies themselves, I really do enjoy the process of baking. Not quite sure the logic behind this, but it makes me feel all happy inside.
Or maybe that’s just the sugar high talking?
Because there’s a friend with a baby coming soon, I thought I’d send some love her way in the form of the Cookie Butter Stuffed Cookies debuted a few weeks ago. Recipes aren’t repeated in this kitchen often, but when everyone raved about them, how could I not?
After all that, my annoyance from the day finally subsided. Right before it was time for bed.
Funny how that works.
Oh Tuesday. You won again!
