Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

Ten Years and I still Swoon

Today is the ten year anniversary of my wedding. Ten years!! And I love him more today than I did then. We have an amazing relationship. If I were asked the secret to our happiness, I'd have to say it's that we are nice to each other every day. I think sometimes people forget how to do that. It's easy to be snarky and let our guard down in our home. But that is where we work the hardest to stay happy. And it works well for us.

I didn't post last night about my eats so I'll just throw the pics all up here now. I didn't get a pic of dinner because I had prepped a roast, surrounded it with veggies, preheated the oven, then forgot to put it in. By the time I realized it, it was too late. I went and got Papa Murphy's instead. And what a great choice! I ordered the Gourmet Chicken Bacon Artichoke deLite and it was sooo good! You'll see a pic of it for today's lunch. And because it's so paper thin, you can eat lots of pieces of it.

Okay, I'm sure you are sick of seeing this damn muffin, but I did have another one yesterday and forgot to snap a pic. The good news is that we are out of them... except the bags of them in the freezer, but they won't be coming out for another week.

Yesterday's breaky. Same ol' same ol'. I say that, but truth be told, so not sick of it.

Lunch was spectacular yesterday. Did you know that you don't need oil to make falafel? Traditionally it's pretty much deep fried. But you can bake it. Or, like I did, I prepped it in a nonstick fry pan and just fried it dry. I served it chopped on top of a salad, with apple and avocado and a tablespoon of Mediterranian olive oil dressing.

This mornings oatmeal I tried using coffee instead of water. Just to see if it made a difference. Nope. Maybe if I made it double strength so you could really taste the coffee. I dont' think I have any instant coffee to do that, though. The kid keeps commandeering it. Rotter.

Leftover lunch! This is that pizza I was talking about. They use creamy garlic sauce, bacon, artichoke, chicken, spinach and a smattering of cheese. These three slices were 290 calories! Crazy, huh? I went on the website and got the NI and then weighed it twice to be sure. Sweet! And in my ongoing quest for bowel happiness, I added apple and carrots to my plate.

I feel bad for Steve. I told him last night that my present for him wasn't going to be ready until Saturday. He didn't get me anything. Now he feels bad. He said "all I got for you is my love", to which I responded, "it's all I ever asked for". I love him so much!

But secretly? Between you and me? It's our tenth anniversary. A token something would have been nice. I know he's broke because he's paying off my credit card debt. I know he's tweaking as he watches his own rise up because of it. But a little keepsake something would have been nice. Now he probably will bring me home flowers because he feels guilty. And I'd rather he didn't, to be honest. They will just die.

Mine didn't cost a lot. Under $40. I got him a travel mug, and am having it engraved with a picture of me blowing him a kiss.

I'm such a selfish bitch, aren't I...

Thanks for listening,

Happy Anniversary!

You know, I don't think that you are selfish. Trinkets are not that expensive, but sometimes mean an awful lot. I'd be disappointed if my husband didn't have just a little token for me, particularly for our 10 year anniversary. :)

Hey now, I just have to say that that pizza looks really good.
