Today was fantastic and just what I needed after the horrible week I had last week.
Breakfast - Egg burrito (one egg, spinach, taco bell mild sauce) with a banana. Snack - string cheese & grapes Lunch - one cup of tortellini, salad with honey mustard dressing, carrots Snack - ½ cup of cottage cheese. (I tried to dress this up so it isn’t so bland. I put some lemon juice, garlic & herb Ms. Dash, and basil. Do not recommend.) Dinner - Chili Mac (jumbo elbow macaroni, kidney beans, black beans, velveeta, shredded cheese, carrots, orange pepper, onion, diced tomato, rotel) with salad.
I got off work early, so I cleaned up the backyard. We had a ton of stuff just sitting around in the backyard from when we moved in August. I finally went through it all and trashed some stuff. I also finally planted my basil and cilantro. That was some nice light physical work.
My fiance and I also went for a walk after dinner. We went around the neighborhood. Its about a mile.
I feel good. I’m ready to get back on track. My coteacher is back this week so I can drink my water. It’s going to be good.
I hate Cilantro and whenever I eat it it tastes like… you know those beetles that come from the little wormy bugs that get into your cheerios if you leave them for too long and when you squish them they smell kind of like permanent markers? Cilantro tastes to me like those bugs smell.
Anyway when I started Space Garden it came with a bunch of herb pods, one of which was Cilantro. I was planning on chucking it and putting a second mint plant in there but I didn’t have time to grab mint seeds and a bunch of reviews I read online said Cilantro barely ever sprouts without all this special attention anyway so I figured in the interest of not having an empty hole in the Space Garden I’d plant the cilantro anyway, then chuck it when it inevitably didn’t grow because I wasn’t pampering it like you’re supposed to and put something I actually like in it’s place.
One week later and THIS GODDAMN CILANTRO IS GROWING SO FAST YOU CAN PRACTICALLY VISIBLY WATCH IT GET LARGER. I turned away for twenty minutes and there was A WHOLE NEW LEAF and it was so much bigger that IT WAS CURLING AGAINST THE TOP OF THE LITTLE PLASTIC POD. WHY IS MY MOST HATED CHILD MY HEALTHIEST AND STRONGEST AND HOW CAN I SACRIFICE IT IN A WAY THAT WILL MAKE MY MINT SPROUT?
