Last night I spent the evening all alone (well, me and the cats, who insisted on fighting underneath my chair). I made myself some dinner, watched Dr. Phil, then worked on my scrapbook a little bit.
For dinner, I had a Skillet Sensation. Unfortunately, mine wasn’t the Lean Cuisine variation, but the regular, full fat Chicken Alfredo. Let me tell you, it was fantastic. I love it, and consequently, at the whole bag. Yeah, I know it’s supposed to feed two people… but I was hungry, and there was no one there to fight me for it! So I ate it all. Yeah, all 600 grams, 700 calories of it. I was wonderfully full, and I didn’t have to snack all night! I am a little surprised that it actually fit all in my tummy. I wasn’t expecting to be physically able to eat it all, but I was… so I did. ::sigh:: it’s a new low day for me.
Rob usually gets the mail, so it was a bit of an adventure for me to go and do that yesterday. Firstly, our mailbox is in a superbox of about 20 or 30 little mailboxes. I had no idea which box it was, except that it was on the lower portion (I watched Rob crouch over to get the mail once). So yesterday, I stood out in the cold trying to get my key to fit in one of the boxes. It finally did… but pretty funny because it took me a while! Anyway – there was nothing exciting in the mail. Boo.
So I scrapbooked last night. I finished two pages, and got two base pages all set out (just have to stick on the pictures and the title and journaling). I even have pictures to prove it. I am working on Rob and I’s album, which has pictures from the beginning of our relationship, and will continue right up until our baby is born. Then I will switch to the new album, starting with baby pictures! I’m about two years behind… so yeah. I’ve really got to get on it, otherwise I will never, ever catch up. So the pages I did yesterday were from my wedding dress shopping. I tried on a zillion dresses, with many of them being far too expensive. There was one that I wanted more than anything (the whipping cream dress) but it was almost three times more expensive then the dress I chose in the end. Plus, it wasn’t *quite* the right size, and they wouldn’t have been able to get one in for me in time. I’m glad I didn’t pick that dress, in the end, because it would have been too heavy, and I had a hard time keeping my smaller and lighter dress up all night! Anyway, here are the pictures.
The bottom picture is of the base pages, so it’s pretty boring to look at right now. Maybe tomorrow (or the next day) I might have those two done. It seems like I only get around to scrapbooking when Rob’s out of town 🙂 I should do more of it when he’s home too. Then I wouldn’t be so far behind!
Nybbles was pretty out of sorts last night. I felt pretty bad for her, as I think she misses Rob. She wouldn’t come to bed at the normal time, and kept meowing. When I woke up this morning, she was on the bed, but all her toys were at the front door 😦 Sad! She was pretty affectionate this morning, but it’s hard to tell if it’s because she loves me, or because she just wanted my bacon.
Ok, I have to tell you about my breakfast, and then I’ve got work to do. Have you ever had a McGriddle (I think) from McDonalds? It’s like an egg mcmuffin but with sweet pancakes instead of the muffin? Well, I decided to try to make my own. I took two (blueberry) eggo waffles, put a bit of syrup on one, butter on the other, fried up two eggs (solid), used two pieces of cheese, and some bacon (too much bacon, actually), and made it into a sandwich. It was actually pretty good, although one egg might have been sufficient. I couldn’t eat it all, in the end. I left a couple of bites, as I didn’t want to stuff myself. Ha ha ha… Yeah, I did say that out loud. ::sigh::
