I’ll admit it – I’m a Gleek. I’m a Gleek through and through. I love the show. I love everything about it. I love the songs. I love that the leads are Broadway veterans. I love the messages that the show sends. It’s one of the reasons why I love Wednesdays – in addition to “Top Chef”.
Okay. I’m done now. 🙂
Breakfast was the same as yesterday – ‘Nanner oats. I think I’m going to try pumpkin tomorrow. I did hear there might be a pumpkin shortage *gasp!* I might have to stock up.
I taught this morning. I thought it went well – not as controversial as the last one. The highlight of the day was a girl asking me if I was going to teach regularly, and when I said it was my last day, she responded “Aw, that makes me sad.” Yay! I made an impression! Well, it was one student, but I’ll just pretend she has the attitude of the entire class. 🙂
Lunch was going to be tricky today – I was meeting my father and my Aunt Jane at a local custard/burger restaurant. I walked away only having a plain grilled chicken sandwich (with BBQ sauce – of course), a few fries (we all shared) and a Diet Coke. No frozen custard – which is a big step for me.
I was able to relax a bit while taking care of some emails and other business. And then it was off to swim club. It was weird – I felt a little better. I think it was because I knew that I was going to go into a better direction. I was more relaxed, not as tense. After club, I went to the other one where I talked to the coach. We decided that if I did switch clubs – it should be after the natural break between seasons (around March). I agree – I don’t want to do it out of spite, I don’t want to leave anyone in a bind – I just need a better situation. A situation that matches my goals as a coach – and I think the new club does that. We’ll see what happens… I haven’t decided how I’m going to go about telling people…
When I got home, it was after 9 o’clock and it was time for a quick dinner. Enter Trader Joe’s (again!) Chicken Marsala.
It only takes 3 minutes in the microwave – and it’s pretty good. Not as good as my Mom’s – but nothing is. 🙂
(Yes, I resurrected my digital camera. No more iPhone photos for you guys – only the best!)
We paired it with some mashed potatoes from a pouch (I cheated – so what?!) and some peas (from Trader Joe’s!). It was a nice, healthy and quick meal. Yum, yum, yum!
Tomorrow will be a fun – yet long – day. Research at Marquette, class, preparing for the banquet (it’s a pot-luck – I don’t know if I’m going to make anything….), swim banquet and “NEW MOON”!!! I’m excited about the movie because it was my favorite book of the series. Yes – I’m totally Team Jacob and this is *his* movie.
Wow… I’m really showing my inner 14 year old girl. I need to stop…
Alright – back to “Top Chef” and “Glee”!!!!!
There’s that 14 year old girl again… 🙂
