The Dinner That Almost Wasn’t

Super long day here. So long I’m not sure I can write in complete sentences.

My day started at 5 a.m. I just HAD to have one more workout with the ladies of 6 a.m.

Today started the big gym move. I had to grab the computer to drop it off at the new gym for set up along with my camera for a time lapse I’m attempting. This is my first attempt at one so I don’t have high hopes, but I wanted to give it a try.

I jetted home just in time to see the 10-year-old off to school before the bus came. Then I had to run back to the new gym location to meet the Verizon guy before jetting back to the elementary school for a short dance event.

Yes, dance event!

The 10-Year-Old has been taking ballroom dance lessons all week and they had a little event today to show parents their progress.

He did great! And as I said on Facebook, I’m not sure how I’m going to survive the next 10 years or so without being a blubbering mess. I had to hold back tears just watching him dance!

Right after the dance I headed BACK to the gym and it was… go, go, go, go, HOLY crap, it’s 5:30 p.m.!

I got home a little after 6 and told The Husband I just didn’t have it in me to make dinner. He offered to pick something but our options were pizza, subs, or, umm gee, pizza.

Nothing I really wanted any of us to eat.

I did have some chicken semi-defrosted because I wan planning on making this but I just lost all motivation after my long day.

The breading.

The mess.


I proceeded to throw myself a small pity party.

I hemmed.

I hawed.

And then I said, F-it and just started cooking.

Twenty minutes later I was sitting in front of this.


Sweet potato microwaved.

Brussels sprouts sautéed with bacon.

And chicken sans breading because ain’t nobody got time for that after a long-ass day at work.

Time to finally shower and chill with The Husband. I have a feeling I’ll be asleep in minutes.
