J Man invented a new word today:
My definition: Young adults who live next door to you.
Used in a sentence: ‘Those tee-neighbors across the street were having a crazy party.’
It’s possible that J wants to be a tee-neighbor himself- or at least a teenager.
He keeps telling us that pretty soon not only will he be taller than we are, but he’ll be older than we are.
He’s sure eating that way. The kid is always hungry. Always.
I was hungry today. I was hungry all day long.
This was my attempt at filling the bottomless pit:
Oatmeal. 1 whole banana. 1 TBS flax seed. 1 TBS peanut butter. 1/2 TBS blackberry jam.
12 oz. decaf soy PB and Joe from Silk. I’ve been boycotting Silk for about 6 months now because they lost my punch card. Also, their motto is “it only tastes expensive”. This is a lie because they really are expensive. Matty B peer pressured me into going.
I usually eat lunch at 1. Today, at 11:30, I was famished. Clif helped me survive.
Glen juiced my lunch for me. In the mix? Celery, red pepper, carrot, spinach, cilantro, pear and blueberry. Cilantro? Weird, right? It was delish!
And then I hit a wall. Remember how I told you a few days ago that I was drinking caffeine again?
The perfectionist in me has been trying to reclaim my caffeine free state. I was going on 4 days.
My afternoon headache was directly behind my eyes. Actually, my eyes were twitching a little. I was working hard on this giant evaluation I have coming up and I was lacking focus, drive, common sense. A Starbucks Via got me through.
2 hours later I was hungry again. Carrots and hummus stopped the rumbling for awhile.
Dinner was salad (romaine, cucs, orange pepper and balsamic), 1/2 cup quinoa, sautéed mushrooms, onions, zucchini and sundried tomatoes with about 5 of the above pictured meatballs.
I might actually be full now. Maybe.
In addition to his growing appetite, J Man is displaying other “teenager like” attributes.
When asked how his day was: “I don’t know.”
When asked why he hit his sister: “Because I have a fever.” Already with the excuses.
At least he’s honest in some things.
Tonight, Matty B had him in timeout for bullying Miss Rae and to all of Matty B’s admonishment and instructions J Man would reply, “ok” (in a very monotone voice).
Matty B said, “are you listening to what I’m saying, or are you just saying ‘ok’?”
J Man: “Just saying ok.”
