Wk 5, Day 6 (Sat, 24-Aug-2013)

. . No comments:
  • My husband and I are working on better communications with each other.  Melding several cultures together is sometimes a challenge.  He usually is a very polite communicator while I tend to be more blunt.  He jokes more and can be quite sarcastic, but tries not to be sarcastic when he's angry, unless he's really angry.  I tend to be underlying, almost passively sarcastic, which really upsets him.  He tends to take extremes when things are heated and doesn't like to talk when he's angry while I'm the opposite.  We are both learning.  As I am less passively sarcastic and just communicate in a normal, nice way, making my requests, he's much better with this.  
  • The frig smelled bad.  Had the kids clean this.  It's much better now.  It took them awhile because we couldn't get the lower rack out, which had a bunch of gross liquid stuff pool down there.
  • My dad is lending me his Kitchen Aid accessories to make chicken sausage.  Woohoo!  I hope to get to it today.
  • Today is major laundry day with 10 loads.  Is going to take all day and not sure if we can get everything done today or not.
  • Today we are making Bistec and homemade fries instead of plantains.  Normally I buy everything on sale, but this time, we did not.  I'm really looking forward to this meal.  It is sooo yummy.  We are home mainly all day except to run out to Lowe's, which is nearby. 
  • My weight has been going up and I'm not sure if it's because I'm drinking less water.  I've stopped drinking any liquids with my meals, and I'm not sure if that's causing me to eat more.  When I drink throughout my meals, I seem to eat less, have fewer cravings, and want to eat less food.  So, I'm going back for now to drinking throughout my meals.
  • I made mantecadas today, my first attempt using a recipe I found off the internet in Spanish.  Had to do some conversions to what we use.  It turned out delicious, but not what I was going for.  Maybe too much cinnamon and I need to add some corn meal?  
  • Haven't been taking as many pictures lately, and I will post when I get the chance.  Today has been super busy and I'm really beat.
  • My dad asked me if I made the sausage.  He seemed disappointed I didn't get to it, but my plans are to do that tomorrow. 
  • Didn't get as much of my sub con job work done because of everything else I was doing.  That's okay.  I did get some work done and maybe I'll get more done tomorrow.

  • 10:30 pm - 7:00 am (8 hrs) - Body still sore, but felt better to get some sleep.  Still tired.  I know you cannot catch up on sleep.  My husband stayed up super late.  Not sure when he went to bed, but it was after 3:00 am (it's not good for him, but I can't say anything).  He did wake me up probably around 4:00 am for some fun, which that was nice and I was glad I could still go back to sleep.    
Breakfast  (9:00 am) - a Bacon Croissant sandwich from JIB.
