Somehow Sunday of a 2 1/2 day week doesn't seem as bad as Sunday of a normal week. Yay :)
Last night Eric and I tried a restaurant called Imari in Winchester. Apparently it used to be called, "It Rains Fishes" which I think is a way more creative name myself but hey.
I order Fresh Summer Rolls...
Yea, see that massive amount of lettuce? I'll be honest I actually dislike lettuce. I used to pretend to like it because it's healthy, even if it does taste like thin cardboard... but now my stomach dislikes lettuce so I have a good excuse not to eat it. This is the beginning of what happened to my plate...
I'll take the Not Your Average Joe's spring rolls, thank you very much. They are similar but involve rice noodles instead of excessive lettuce.
I also ordered a lobster sushi...
It was good, much better than the summer rolls. Overall though, Eric and I have a lot of Japanese places in the area that we like more. Fun to try a new place though. It's kind of an addiction of mine actually.
Today has been a relaxing day. I walked three miles on the treadmill this morning, while watching Rascal Flatts on CMT and reading my current book- A Year of Fog (so good!). I think BFF Katie's husband might be moonlighting as Gary from Rascal Flatts...
Do you see it? Haha. Alright perhaps more like long lost brothers?
ANYWAY (dude what is UP with my randomness this weekend?),
Today I was supposed to tell you something I miss... which is along the same lines as "regret" but I won't refuse to do it. Even though I do miss these things, I don't want them back because I know I would have to give up all the greatness that is life now...
-A time when I could easily read a book in a day, and the days with which to do this seemed endless...
-Making up dances and teaching them to Caroline
-Playing with dolls
-The excitement of Christmas as a kid
-Decorating lockers for birthdays
-Riding my bike/rollerblading everywhere
-Roller skating birthday parties at Wallex
-Spending hours/days on AOL instant messager
-Free blocks (in high school we had empty blocks and we were allowed to leave school- I had all sorts of fun traditions with friends~ bowling, Chinese food and too many more to name). I might miss free blocks the most.
-Nightly TV watching sessions with my roommates
-College winter breaks
-Buying wedding magazines (but not planning it!)
-Planning our honeymoon
- I guess it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that I miss those that I've lost
That's all I can think of. Now I feel like I need a really positive post tomorrow to make up for this. But seriously, how can I bring free blocks back to my life? Do you think kindergarten is too young for the kids to have free blocks so their teacher can also... Don't answer that.
What do you miss?
PS. Some things I don't miss: homework, not having a license, being a teenager (which of course would be a lot better if we had perspective on how life actually was haha), living with roommates in tiny rooms, driving to Eric's house in rush hour traffic (particularly on Friday afternoons), being a first year teacher, living in a tiny apartment, and planning a wedding :)
