Today is a good day. We went to my parents house so we could eat and Little Bit could get the rest of her presents. One of the presents was a doctor playset, with a lab coat, stethoscope, name tag, glasses, and bandaids. I. Can. Not. With that much cute. We had a blast and visited all day. Sra. Tanque got Whataburger for us for dinner.

She has a kitchen/cooking set, but it's because before we got her one she would hone in on any play kitchen she found and hyper focus on it. Not too hard to figure out what to get her when that happens.

Today is a good day. I have, however, slept poorly. Allergies, though otherwise under control, wake me up in the night and make it hard to fall asleep. My tracker didn't Regis any sleep at all, though I probably got 4 to 5. I've been tired all day, but did get a nap. I enjoyed hanging out with the family. 

 

Dinner was good. I got thin pork chops and marinated them in soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger paste. Later I cut them unto strips and cooked them in a skillet, then added cornstarch to the marindae and cooked it with the pork. I served it over cooked ramen noodles. On the side was a salad made from a small sliced red onion, two thin sliced English cucumbers, a thin sliced red bell pepper, olive oil, rice vinegar, salt, pepper, agave nectar (I ran out of honey), and some sliced green onion. I prepped it ahead of time so everything had a pickle like feel. It was awesome.

After three (four? they blur at this point) nights of this in a row, I finally got some good rest last night. Hoping you did, too.

Despite having to be up early to come in to work early I actually did get unbroken sleep (about five and a half hours, and it has certainly helped.

It doesn't, and watching her compassion come out when she takes care of us or her toys is heartwarming to no end.

I just found your log. Glad to see you here in my thread.

 

Today is a good day.  I actually got an interrupted sleepless night. Was only 5 and a 1/2 hours but getting it all in a row felt refreshing.  work was fine and I had decent energy  Thanks to getting enough sleep. Dinner was really good. It was a take on pepper steak. I started with rice which I made by toasting the rice with sesame oil, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. I then added water and cooked it according to the package directions. I heated some sesame oil and added the beef and red bell pepper along with soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger paste, and minced garlic. Some more liquid cooked off, which I left in the pan and combined with some flour. When I got the consistency I wanted I added beef broth and a hint of honey and let it reduce. It was really good.

It's still crazy to me how much one good solid night of sleep makes SUCH a huge difference.  I mean, obvs it makes sense science and stuff and blahblah, but, you know.  It's 2022 (almost) you'd think we could come up with some kind of bio-hack for this 'sleep' thing.

 

Anyways I'm glad you are well rested again!!
