TGIF! It’s Friday…yay! I don’t know about you, but this week flew by for me! I am shocked today is Friday. Do you have fun plans for tonight? We don’t. Fridays tend to be like any other night for us because we still have to get up early and open the gym on Saturday mornings. But since tomorrow night we are definitely going to be watching the Cowboy wildcard game against Philly I am going to try to convince the hubs that tonight should be movie night! Santa brought me the movie Australia and I really want to see it! Has anyone else seen it?
Last night the hubs and I watched the national championship game between Texas and Alabama. Bummer that Bama won…but all’s fair in love & football, right? We had Keith’s all time favorite recipe for dinner: Chicken Adobo! The best part about this meal is that is ridiculously EASY! How great is it that Keith’s favorite recipe is probably one of the easiest ones of all time?! Lucky me! 🙂
Okay, bear with me really quickly but I REALLY need to gripe about this weather! Okay…seriously it is 22 degrees right now…I know the entire country is COLD but we southerners are not used to this. We are used to balmy 50 degree weathers and 100+ degree summers…this extreme cold is totally killing me!!! Okay…I’m done!
Moving on: I know everyone has that one thing they HATE to do in the kitchen. For me, it is hard boiling eggs. I literally despise to do it, but between me and Keith we eat about 12-18 a week. I only bring this up because we are totally out of eggs and I need to go boil some. Ugh…don’t make me! PLEASE!
What do you HATE to do in the kitchen?
But to be slightly informative…here is everything you ever wanted to know about the egg:
Lastly, I love to find inspirational quotes and I found one recently that really hit home with me. It said, “Trying to be perfect actually hinders your chances of being excellent.” That is me! Totally. I struggle with perfectionism in EVERYTHING that I do. But here’s the problem: since perfection is impossible that means I am always failing. That is a hard burden to carry every single day in everything I do. I know I don’t tend to reveal very personal things about myself (a stoic trait I am trying to break) but they always say that before you can correct something you have to own it first. So…I am owning it…right here with you. Being a perfectionist is really difficult and exhausting. Where does it come from? I have NO idea. But in an effort to start 2010 off right, I am trying to break the perfectionist cycle. so, if I accidently overcook dinner…it’s okay. If my workout isn’t the best that day…it’s okay. If I don’t get every item marked off my to-do list…it’s okay. IT DOESN’T MEAN I HAVE FAILED!
What things do you struggle with?
