It was a tough week; we had two deaths to deal with, both affecting some of my very best friends in the world. One involved trips to the airport and the other involved my singing at the funeral last Friday. We did get to go to the gun show on Saturday with my folks and our friend John. It was entertaining, as always. My mom got two rings and Joey got a new wedding band with SKULLS. They didn’t have one in my size (bleh). So, other than some flyers from the religious crazies, I didn’t really get anything…but the people-watching is always worth the entry fee.
I slept a lot this weekend. We took Katie to the airport at 3:30 am on Friday, so we went right to bed after we got home after the funeral (for my other friend’s mother). I slept from 7:30 to 6:30 the next morning. Napped both Saturday and Sunday, too. I’ve not felt so tired in a long time.
Anyway, I don’t have much else of import right now. Things have been really stressful, but they seem to be slowing down a little. Here’a new Kins-pic for you, though:)
Mommeh, where did all my toys go?
Shelli, you played them all under your perch.
Oh. Fetch them, pls. Kthxbai.
I was going to blog yesterday, but I started feeling kind of crappy and didn’t end up doing much of anything. We had our Chinese, but it seems to have not agreed with me. I got Szechuan Tofu (the sauce isn’t greasy). On a joyous note, our second box set of MST3K came yesterday!!!!!! So we watched two of them last night and we’re watching the third today:).
Yesterday’s breakfast was notable; I made Heather’s Protein Pancakes!
I had to make a couple of adjustments because of what I had on-hand. I don’t have any rice protein powder (but I ordered some!!), so I made this with four egg whites, 1/4 cup pancake mix, a little vanilla and sweetener….and one TBSP unsweetened cocoa. These were freakin’ AWESOME. In fact, I’m thinking I’m going to make them again for dinner tonight. Heather, as always, you are the bomb. If you ever come through Charlotte, I’d love to meet you!
We went to the C&E Gun Show today…it’s being held at “The Park” (Charlotte Merchandise Mart) today and tomorrow. It was a little lackluster, to be honest, but I did get a really cool replica Israeli Army paratrooper bag (it’s like a messenger bag). I’d been wanting something Army-ish to carry.
Well, I’m going to go post over at my food blog, Eating Back to Good, and then I’m going to have some more MST3K lovin’!!
