So I meant to do part 2 of the whole California trip the day after that first post....BUT that didn't happen (obviously). Really I don't have a good excuse as to why I haven't been blogging. I've had the last 2 week off work because they "haven't had hours" for me besides weekends. To anyone else this would be cherished, but me...I hate it. It makes me feel lazy. Sure my feet aren't in pain like usual and my legs don't feel like giving in at any second- BUT that's the sign of a good day for me. Work is my social outlet and I haven't had it for 2 weeks practically.
I HAVE been looking forward to one day the last few weeks and that's Wednesday. I have one class from 8-9:30 and then the rest of the day off work and school. So I always drive out to Altoona to get a treatment and then spend the rest of the day with my grandma. It's great. Not only to get away from homework, school, and work but also technology for the most part. Her computer is ancient and I usually turn my cell phone on silent so it's just the two of us (and oftentimes the tv). We take walks, nap, go out to eat, watch Wheel of Fortune, and lately have been cooking supper together. Two weeks ago was probably the best. We went grocery shopping that day and picked up a pork loin, asparagus, red potatoes, and apples. So so soooooo GOOD! I took a picture of it all on my plate before I devoured it.
The next picture is of the steak kabobs I made about a week ago in lab. I was a little wary about them since they were supposed to be to the raw stage inside but either way it was good. The last lab class (Thursday), I made bbq pork ribs and jackstraw eggplant and it was delicious. Everyone devoured it which is surprising because I was the last one to bring my product in and it was enough to feed a large family (if not small village). Everyone's a BIG fan of the meat section that we are in. Next week is poultry and then we have seafood and I think we're on to finals after that! Scary right!? You're telling me. I have to get ready to make any 4 combinations of the 18 things we've done!
