We boarded our plane at quarter to one last night. Turns out the crew had been working too many hours in a row and had to be released so we had to wait for a new crew to come from LA. Seriously. Was there no one on call a little closer to Chicago than LA!?
Here’s me boredom eating (well, I was kinda hungry) on the plane on the runway waiting around 1:00 central time. At least it was healthy eating!
But when the pilot finally arrived, he greeted us with apologies and said "It’s a nice night for flying folks!" His enthusiasm was contagious – until we were all asleep! I was lucky to sleep almost the whole flight (in a Z position in my seat!)
We arrived home to Hillsborough 4:30 AM!! My poor mom was up at 7:00 to go teach her class, which is an ALL DAY class too – not just 50 minutes and go! The report from my dad was that she was "excited and cheerful" this morning regardless of her 2.5 hours.
I managed to sleep only until 9:30 and woke up too excited to hit the road and have a big bowl of oatmeal. I was happy to find more fresh blueberries in the fridge!
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup skim
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 large banana
- 1/2 cup-ish blueberries
- Sprinkle almonds
- Spoonful Smuckers Natural
I think the deliciousness speaks for itself
I met the husband and his brother, Andrew, (who is visiting us this week) for lunch at Dean and Deluca on my way into Charlotte.
Talk about CRAVINGS for veggies – I have really missed them and couldn’t wait to dig into this huge salad. I ate nearly the whole box!
- Mixed greens
- Sun dried tomatoes
- Mandarin oranges
- A few roasted veggies
- GOAT CHEESE!
- And balsamic on the side that I barely used because I had so many delicious toppings
Afterwards we went in for "dessert" samples – chocolate covered pretzel balls and some chocolate-y bread. I had one of each:
I came home to a beautiful vase of flowers from our garden waiting on my desk and a CLEAN HOUSE!!!
I literally have 10,000 things to do – computer, blog, mail, unpacking, phone calls and more! And a NAP needs to go in there too. Karen is joining us here for dinner with Andrew so I better get organized!
