Yesterday, I still felt pretty sick and out of it, but today, I finally felt better. Being sick is no fun, so feeling better is a huge relief for me. Having no appetite was really the worst part, even worse than having aches and pains for two days. I’ve been reading food blogs and it killed me to look at all of the pictures. Nothing appealed to me except for pita chips, Chobani, and string cheese.
I spent yesterday cleaning around the house, resting, and experimenting with the Kodak photo book layout I am making courtesy of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program (another whole post on that to come soon). I am having fun working on it!
I ended up going into work on Friday afternoon because I had an event that I was supposed to supervise that evening. I told my co-workers ahead of time that since I was sick, I would get things organized, make sure a certain part of the night was ok, and then I would have to leave. Good thing I did because I still had no appetite at this point and thus no energy. I was tired on the drive home and crashed on the couch shortly after arriving back from work. I was so happy not to have to stay up until midnight for the event!
Anyway, onto my Saturday–we relaxed a bit, ran some errands, and then went to my in-laws’ house to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. Dinner was a bit of chicken for me and a corn on the cob.
Then the fun began! We all piled in Craig’s car and headed to Tosa Village for some frozen yogurt action at Yo Mama!
I had cake batter (again) and heath swirl with my usual toppings–cookie dough, brownie bites, mochi (LOVE LOVE this topping), and heath bar.
Craig had a fruity combo again topped his with a new selection–some Mango Bursting Bobbas. I tried one and it was yummy!
It was the first time Craig’s family had frozen yogurt and they seemed to love it as much as we do.
Here’s the birthday girl with hers.
And my sister-in-law Lisa.
I adore these lights and wish we could have one in our kitchen.
I mentioned to my mother-in-law that the house I grew up in until I finished 3rd grade wasn’t really that far away from the frozen yogurt place. She suggested we drive by there, so that’s what we did.
It ended up being a lucky day to do that because the house was just sold. When I got home tonight, I was able to look at the updates of the inside of it in the listing online and send it to my family! My parents couldn’t believe how much they were asking for it now and neither could I. It was great being able to see interior pictures of the house I loved so much as a child. I learned how to bike on that sidewalk and had so many great memories there. I only wish I had known it was for sale sooner so we could have gone through it!
Fun fact to leave you with–the white house that is to the right of my old house when facing it is where The Deep End of the Ocean author Jacquelyn Mitchard lived for a while (while we lived there). I used to play with her son and everything. Pretty cool, huh?
Time for me to get ready for bed! Good night.
