Paralyzed

Hey There,

  How’s your weekend going?  Mine has been great so far.  It’s been a mix of working out, errands, housework and fun.  I know you don’t want to hear about my scrubbing the bathrooms or my 1 1/2 hour trip to the grocery store yesterday so we’ll just cover some of the fun.

Around 5 PM yesterday evening, Rob and I returned to home base from doing our dutiful chores and completing our Saturday agendas.  We were busy bees yesterday, folks.  Just seeing him walk up to the sliding glass back door brought a huge smile to my face.  He says that my eyes shine when I see him.  I believe it!  I love that man so much!

Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff!  We decided on a dinner and movie date night and hurriedly got cleaned up to go out.  We went to one of our favorite restaurants, La Bottega.  It’s simple, quick and right down the street from us.  I love their salads.  My usual go to is the Susan Salad:

“Susan Salad” 
Chicken cutlet, mixed greens, red onions, hot peppers, corn, gorgonzola, tomatoes and balsamic  

I swap the chicken cutlet with grilled chicken and the hot peppers with sweet roasted peppers and I’m a happy gal!

Rob usually gets some sort of soup.  He LOVES soup!  Then, it’s either a meatball parm panini or the spinaci salad with grilled chicken:

“Spinaci”
Baby spinach, ciabatta croutons, black olives, walnuts,
white mushrooms, goat cheese and balsamic dressing

I’m sure by now they already know what we’re ordering when they see us.  We sometimes order take out from them and I swear the girl knows my voice and what I’m going to say.  Hey, at least we’re easy.  😉

We ate until our bellies were happy and then headed out to the movies.  We had decided on X-Men First Class and were quite happy with our decision.

My butt felt numb with the way I slumped in my seat for the majority of the movie.  It was worth it though.

At that point it was still pretty early.  We made it home, got into comfy clothes, and retired to the bedroom to watch another movie before bed.  I forget the name of it now, but it was a little on the gruesome side.  All in all, it was a wonderful Saturday night!

Now, maybe it was the movie right before bed or maybe it’s things that have been weighing on my mind, but I woke up this morning feeling exhausted.  Rob gave me a hug and asked if I had a nightmare last night because I was yelling out in my sleep.  I feel like I’ve been having a lot of bad dreams lately.  I wake up an my jaw is clenched.  Since I don’t normally watch gruesome movies before bed I’m going to have to go with option B.  I’ve been under a lot of stress lately and I think it’s getting to me.  I feel PARALYZED!

Rob has an exciting day with his brother planned and I have a list of things I want to do.  However, I couldn’t get moving this morning.  I drove to the gym, hung out in the parking lot for about 5 minutes and then returned home.  I just didn’t have it in me.  I decided to brew some coffee and make a breakfast I haven’t had in ages.  I excitedly got the ingredients out to make my famous whole wheat blueberry pancakes. YUM!!

Stacked!

Can’t Wait!

Blueberries Gallore…

 
 
Side of Whites w/ Cracked Pepper, for my protein fix
 

Can’t Forget Joe…

I Look So Serious…It’s The Anxiety, I Tell Ya

I clearly must have hated it, finger licked syrup and all.

 
 
My home cooked, comfort food helped in easing my stomach and I don’t feel quite as paralyzed anymore.  I won’t lie.  The knot is still sitting right in the middle of my stomach.  I think it’s fear of the work week beginning again.
 
Now, I’m going to clean my mess up and head out to pamper myself a bit.  I’m thinking maybe a mani/pedi will do the trick.  I also want to get that workout in that I held out on this morning.
 
I hope you’re having a great weekend!
