Mal is back-to-school today, which means our summer is officially over. Wah.
I’m actually looking forward to the start of the ‘new year.’ Back-to-school time always feels like turning over a new leaf with regard to getting back on track and sticking to a schedule once again. I like that feeling.
Since Mal needed to get to school this morning, I woke up with him and made us breakfast (like I usually do during the academic year). I cooked scrambled egg whites with chopped onions and green bell pepper.
On the side: whole wheat toast with melted cheddar and iced coffee.
Last Night’s Dinner
Mal and I fired up the grill for dinner last night. We might as well take advantage of the barbequing weather for as long as we can!
On the menu: veggie skewers + marinated chicken.
After dinner, I enjoyed a piece of Banana Bread with melted butter while watching Bachelor Pad. Don’t you think Mal looks just like Kirk? They even dress the same. Mal owns the exact same tank top blue plaid shirt Kirk wore last night.
Question of the Day
What is one lesson you learned in school that you will never forget?
My answer: Treat others the way you want to be treated.
In middle school, I was “dumped” by my close group of friends. I went from having a wonderful social circle and friends that I could trust (or so I thought) to just one or two pals who stuck by my side. Ever since feeling alone and rejected, I try to treat everyone kindly and the way I want to be treated.
P.S. I’m hosting a giveaway on Trading Up Downtown for Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks coffee!
