As I started thinking about what I want to write tonight my ex texts me to thank our son for the card then proceeds to give me crap about not having him call to wish him a Happy Father's Day. Really? I'm pretty sure the phone works both ways. It is not my job to facilitate a relationship between him & his son, that is his job. Furthermore, I have a life too which no longer revolves around him. He's trying to guilt me. So I tell my kiddo his dad is upset that he didn't call today. My son takes the phone into his room & leaves a message telling him why he didn't call (we were out in the Jeep today) then ends with telling him he owes me an apology! What? My 9 year old son RULES. Of course I get another text about how important he feels, etc. Grow up, seriously.
End of rant.
Yesterday was a good day. I took my friend's 15 yr old daughter out for girls' day (and my son, lol). We got mani/pedis, went to lunch, then the mall. I spent an obscene amount of money, but she absolutely needed time out of the house so it was worth it. After our day out I arrived home to see that my Amazon goodies had arrived. I was like a kid on Christmas. I broke out the scale & the Cuisinart grill already. I used the grill for dinner last night: ribeye, corn on the cob & grilled zucchini. Yum! Ok so the steak was overcooked & mostly like shoe leather but the rest was divine.
Btw, the veggies came from my Bountiful Basket which I am very pleased with. My box contained mangoes, apples, oranges, plums, avocado, garlic, onion, corn on the cob, baby carrots, and romaine. I will definitely be ordering again.
Tonight I made a skillet meal that I got from Costco. It's a Birds Eye chicken dijon with veggies. Only 180 calories per 1 cup serving & really tasty. Even the kiddo liked it! Along with it we had steamed carrots & corn on the cob. I'm really on a roll with cooking at home & getting my veggies in. Speaking of which, my food tracking has been going really well & I've been under my calorie goal on most days, I think I went over once.
Today we took the Jeep out with our club. We went up to a trail just outside of Jerome, in an attempt to get out of the heat! It was a nice run & as always we had a great time with our extended family. The trail is called Smiley Rock because of a huge boulder that has a smiley face on it.
On that note I'm off to bed. Good night my lovelies!
