Oh, we played the waiting game HARD today! We offered on a house last night, heard back, re-offered, heard back, and re-offered again. Just when I thought all hope was lost, the seller said heâ€™d sleep on it and get back to us tomorrow morning. Iâ€™m not holding out much hopeâ€¦ but weâ€™ll see!
Iâ€™ve been told this is all a normal part of house huntinâ€™ but BOY â€“ itâ€™s so stressful. I was on pins and needles all day.
Tried my hand at a gluten-free lunch â€“ quinoa, carrots, asparagus, spinach, and chickpeas. With some creamy balsamic balsamic dressing.
When people say, â€œI could never go vegetarian!â€ I always reply that there are so many meals they eat every day are vegetarian already, and they donâ€™t even realize it! Perhaps thatâ€™s how eating a reduced gluten diet will beâ€¦ it might be painless (minus the beer issue). I donâ€™t have to complete eliminate gluten, and Iâ€™m not going all the way right away anyway. Easier transition.
Small steps! Hopefully, little efforts will add up to a healthier and happier me.
In the midst of house negotiations, I sat in bed and worked on my book. I think I finally got tired of Starbucks and park benches. Needed a change of pace. Normally, I fall asleep working in bed but it was quite productive.
Husband was in charge of dinner â€“ he made a good spread! A veggie burger, roasted yellow potatoes, steamed red cabbage, asparagus, and broccoli.
HAPPY FRIDAY, friends!!!!
