Q&A a Day: On a scale of one to ten, how was your lunch today? Ten. Biscuits & gravy are on my top five list, along with anything with eggs, peanut butter, fruit, or veggies.
Caleb got the ‘Thug Kitchen, eat like you give a f*ck: The Official Cookbook’ and made the whole wheat biscuits with lentil gravy for our post workout meal. I had a handful of blueberries before we left. Caleb enjoys the serving size of the recipes — a meal with enough for us to pack a lunch.
We went to the shopping plaza to look for sweatpants for Caleb and ended up finding me some new shoes for $37 (why millennials wear Nike) and buying matching shoes (because we’re nerds like that) and perusing other stores for their great sales until we realized the afternoon was over.
Caleb made smoked almond and chickpea salad sammies (sandwiches) on seed bread for dinner and I had one and a half, though it was an open sandwich because I couldn’t close the one slice. It was the satisfying crunchy peanut butter feeling, but an adult meal complete with tomato slice.
I open my computer to write tonight and see a message on Linked In about my grandmother. She had a stroke on October 30th and I wanted to visit, but my broken toe changed my mind and mobility. I’ve been in regular shoes for ten days now, but focused on my own recovery and hadn’t asked about her in a while.
I called my dad so he could remind me that 1) grandma had a stroke and being paralyzed on her left side is a common symptom and that 2) she has recovered some, but not enough that she has been placed in a nursing home. He made me laugh and reminded me of traits that run in the family and of how lucky I am to have him as a father.
