A day full of tissues

by Meghann on November 12, 2011

I told Derek I felt like I was making a ‘Caitlin meal ‘ for lunch today.


She always has these beautiful simple meals of rice and beans with a side of veggies that look delicious, but I never have rice on hand to recreate. Today I had some of last night’s leftover brown rice in the fridge and thought a Caitlin combination sounded perfect. I just opened a can of beans, heated up the leftover rice, and had lunch ready in no time.


I roasted some parsnip and carrot one the side with a little bbq sauce. Yum.



The rest of my day was pretty quiet. There was a lot of sleeping, a lot of football, and a lot of tissues.

After the game was over we went to Anthony’s for salad and pizza. My hunger was a little off, but I had some salad and two small pieces before feeling stuffed.

Order it. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s another crazy night for us. And, by crazy, I mean we’re in our pjs at 9:00pm and already falling asleep on the couch. Fine by me. Bring on the sleep. ๐Ÿ™‚

My head cold returned with a vengeance. ๐Ÿ™ Only this time it’s my nose giving me all the trouble. I fell asleep on the couch at precisely 8:30pm last night after loading up on some decongestants and getting ample snuggle time in with Derek and Maddie. Nose sprays are so, so bad for you, but more ยป
