Starbucks makes me ramble

Hiya everyone!  Happy Friday!  Look what’s ahead in my weekend.  More freakin snow.

Our second Nor'easter of the winter!

Yeah, that caption is dripping with sarcasm because of course I have traveling to do tomorrow.  I’m figuring if NJ Transit did its job and got the boyfriend here during the first giant snow storm in December, I should be able to get to NYC in one tomorrow.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!  Despite the impending snow, I am very excited to be going up to NY again to see the boyfriend.

Last night I did sort of a mini living room boot camp.  I needed to get my heart rate up and break some sort of sweat, I was starting to feel like a giant blob.

Injured Knee Living Room Boot camp

  • 75 regular crunches
  • 50 side crunches on each side
  • 50 v-ups, pulsing for 8 seconds at the end of each set
  • 2 sets of side planks for 30 seconds each
  • 2 sets of 12 arm dips on a chair
  • 2 sets of 10 regular push-ups
  • 2 sets of 10 push-ups with arms at side of chest keeping elbows in
  • 2 sets of 25 inner thigh leg lifts
  • 2 sets of 25 outer thigh leg lifts

Not exactly a five-mile run, but better than nothing.  I made a delicious chicken marsala and wild rice for dinner, and had tons of pretty pictures, but sadly I forgot my camera at home.  I’ll upload them later tonight when I get home from work.  It was soooo good and there are tons of leftovers for tonight, assuming my mom and her boyfriend don’t eat it all today.  She had to have some minor surgical procedures done this morning, so they are home all day.  I just heard from her boyfriend and she is home, fine, and recovering.

Since I don’t have any of those pictures, I’ll share with you the game I’ve been playing with the bf.  He lovesssss presents, and so I keep torturing him with pictures of various parts of his v-day gifts but never the whole thing.  These are the two he’s gotten so far.

That’s payback for Christmas babe, muahaha.  After work tonight, I plan on heading to the grocery/liquor store with everyone else on the east coast and stocking up on booze and other things to entertain me tonight while I’m getting snowed in.  Also, I made the mistake of feeding Pumpkin some soft cat food as a treat, and now the little brat won’t eat her hard food, she just keeps meowing at me.  Well cat, if you get hungry enough you’ll eat the hard stuff!  Ok, well that’s all from me for now, I’ll be back later with those pictures.  Have a great day everyone!

it’s effed up.  No better, at all.  Grrrr, going to the orthopedist on Thursday, hopefully he has no super bad news.
