Ordering An Empty Plate and Many Changes
Today started much like yesterday. The entire weekend has been constant busy. Today we had to clean the old place and get rid of all the extra stuff we didn’t want or need. What a chore! I threw away some things that were really tough to let go, but there just isn’t room at the new place. The throw away items were things that had been stored for years and years, so it’s not like we’ll miss them too much. Irene, Courtney, and I hit the house strong---giving it a good deep clean. It wasn’t long before the place started looking like it did when we first moved in. We started before 9am and finished just after 6pm. It was a really long day.
For lunch we dined at a Mexican place. Courtney ordered a steak burrito, Irene picked the mixed grill fajitas, and I ordered an empty plate. I know how big the portions come here, so I decided to just share. And we still had leftovers. There just wasn’t much sense in me also ordering something. I liked what they both ordered---I just sampled their stuff and quickly became very satisfied.
I really started thinking about all of the changes we’re experiencing of late. We have new living arrangements, new job duties, new experiences, new ways of thinking, new appearance…new everything just about. I seriously don’t know how we’ve kept it all together, but I’m sure it has something to do with our faith, hope, and sense of humor. We love to laugh, always have. We’re a fun-loving-laughing kind of people.
I still had nearly 350 calories remaining tonight. I decided to throw on a pot of coffee and cook an egg white omelet. Courtney was staying over at Irene’s place, so it was just me tonight. It’s quiet for sure, this alone time, good for me---gives me time to think.
I’m exhausted. I’m making this a short one tonight. I certainly appreciate you reading. Goodnight and…
