I then sit down to eat, and realize that even the smell of the sardines is nauseating. I hate sardines. No...no...I don't...once I start eating them, my body will realize that I need this miraclous superfood for omega 3's or 6's or whatever and my dewy young complexion will be thanking me once I start eating these babies regularly. I then put a tiny piece of the sardine in my mouth and immediately regret it. NO...I can't. I just CAN'T. What the hell was I thinking? The mere thought of sardines elicits a physical response where my face contorts like I just watched Miley Cirus twerking in a Catholic Church Christmas service. I can't even bring myself to eat a leaf of kale that the sardine touched. Why the hell are sardines a superfood? Why can't Velveeta be a superfood? Damn you, 6 cans of sardines I stil have in the shelf!! I take the remaining sardines on my plate and hustle them down to feed to the cats, then I head to Panera for the U Pick 2 Brocolli Cheddar Soup and Sierra Turkey Sandwich combo. YUM! There's a moderate area between the black and white that is"health fanatic" and "processed food junkie".... and that grey area can be found over at Panera :) On a related side note - if anyone is looking for Sardines (like for fishing bait or something)...give me a call.
|Thanks, but no thanks...
Finally, I hope you're all enjoying your holidays! This was the first year we didn't host anything holiday related at our house. We went to Brian's parents for Christmas Eve and my parents for Christmas Day...no cooking or cleaning or clean-up afterward. I have to admit it was a nice change. The kids have basically been in their PJ's for 3 days playing with all the toys that Santa brought. By far the messiest toy they got was "Crazy Sand"....it's sand that never dries out. It comes in a host of differet colors and there's A LOT of it. A lot. It's pretty much impossible to contain in one room and so it's been tracked from one end of the house to the next....which is all part of the experience. I'm fairly certain this toy will be "misplaced" by the end of the weekend. On the other hand, we're all having a blast with the Frozen karyoke machine Lauren got from Santa. Last night after a few glasses of wine, Brian & I pulled that baby out and belted out tunes to many an 80's classic as the dogs sat on the couch as our "audience" and looked on both puzzled and horrified.
Well I'm off to enjoy the beautiful weather (sunny and 50!).... I have to admit that I'm actually looking forward to a good snowstorm come January. Talk to me at the end of January and I'm sure I'll be singing a different tune (into the Frozen Karyoke machine, no less)... As we all know, January is the month I typically start losing my mind :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
