I have a pretty good lifehack that I employed this morning. I take an earlier train into the office than DH, and if I forget something, which is almost always my lunch, I'll ask him to bring it into the office. Even though we work at the same company, our offices are 20 floors (and a different elevator bank) away. So he'll bring the stuff to his office, and I have to retrieve it. On days where I have a bunch of meetings and can't make it up there, I say, "Well, if you're auditioning for best husband of the year, you can deliver it to my office". It's insane, but it actually works so much better than if I just asked directly. So, injecting some humor and cheekiness into semi-unreasonable requests can help!
On a cleaning front, I finally got on board with the coarse kosher sea salt trick with dirty cast iron pans. It really works like a charm.
Run: 4 miles run/walk today. Felt great to be outside, but my sciatica and achilles are sore.
Eats: Leftover turkey burger with avocado and bacon and sweet potato fries
) I have identified a trend -- my sister likes to cook elaborate dinners when her boyfriend is coming over, which is typically Wednesdays, because he is off on Thursdays. So, I usually have a nice lunch to take on Thursdays.
Blather: My stomach is measuring two weeks ahead of where it should be, so I have to go in for a growth scan. Gestational diabetes can cause high birth weight in babies, but I feel that I have been managing it pretty well. Still, not excited at the prospect of a giant baby
Bonus: Ignition by R Kelly. HAS to be the Remix. I loved it in college, and I think I love it even more now. I heard it on my run this morning, and thank goodness it was dark and 5AM, because I was lip syncing the lyrics and doing some "dancing", which probably looked really awkward and stupid.
