I slept in "my" bed last night for the first time in over a week, and it was lovely. I ended up coming home from work, making a really delicious salad (posted below), crocheting three granny squares, and watching the first six episodes of SATC. I've missed that show! I brought it with me, but my DVD player here doesn't play US DVD's. I got a US DVD player for my birthday but the voltage converter didn't arrive in the mail until yesterday. I decided to go to bed at eight. I woke up around 1:30 and watched an episode of Arrested Development, then fell back asleep until nine this morning. I knew I was tired, since sleep was all I could focus on yesterday, but I didn't realize I was that wiped out. I could probably sleep for another four or five hours, easily.
Now that we're finishing up the first week of June, I really need to crack down on studying. I'm spending this weekend focusing on it so I can enjoy the time Chris is here. I need to start waking up earlier in the mornings so I can either get an hour or two in before work, or else go into the office early and study over lunch. November seems far away, but it will be here way too soon.
So. My salad last night:
40 g spinach
30 g curly kale
30 g romaine lettuce
40 g raspberries
60 g strawberries
5 g sunflower seeds
5 g pumpkin seeds
2 tsp apple cranberry vinegar (Aspall's)
1 tsp olive oil
dash of salt and pepper
Calories didn't exceed 200 for the meal and it was a really big bowl full. I know they say to use 3 parts olive oil for 1 part vinegar, but I prefer more vinegar (plus, while olive oil is very healthy, it's still chock-full of calories and fat and I have a hard time justifying putting that much on my foods). I think tonight I'll be making a similar salad, but with tomatoes instead of fruit and lemon juice instead of the vinegar. I love sweet salads, but I have some tomatoes burning a hole in my pantry.
Man, I'm having the hardest time waking up this morning. I'll blame the lacklusterness of this entry on that. Wonder what my excuse is every other day of the year.
