Ugh. So it’s Sunday afternoon. I’m chilling in the hammock. With a very bad, bad pedicure (read: it’s been WEEKS since I did my nails) and I haven’t cooked since Thursday! GASP!
I don’t know what it is. We did the shrimps on the beach on Thursday and then fended for ourselves for dinner. And then Friday was (awesome) sandwiches from a local place. And it just went downhill from there.
Yesterday we roadtripped to the south end of the island to check out a sunflower farm and got some awesome pics of Gabriela. Albeit I have a defunct camera lens right now. Gggrrrr. We had lunch out there so by the time we got back home, fed Gabi, put her down for a nap, we were all wiped out so again, it was a fend for yourself night.
We started Sunday off with a (late) 6 mile bike ride, which knocked out the little one after we got home. My dad and I lounged watching the final stage of Le Tour De France (yea Froome!!) while the little one and the husband snoozed.
And then it hit me: I haven’t thought of dinner for tonight! And what’s worse: I’m so not in the mood to do ANYTHING! So, while I lay in my hammock, I’m sorta kicking myself because I haven’t cooked a meal this. Whole. Weekend. Double ugh.
And yet, that’s ok. As awful as I think I feel I have a great husband and dad (who lives with us) who really don’t expect much. And that’s not a dig. These are ‘I’ll have eggs or a PB&J’ bunch of guys so a home cooked meal is golden to them. I just get down on myself, which I’m sure is not a good thing.
Gabriela still has her home cooked meals and us adults (over)indulge in other delights. Everyone needs a weekend off right , right? Right??
I’ll be back at it tomorrow so stay tuned for some actual food on the blog! In the meantime, this was our awesome lunch from Carlito’s yesterday in Guanica: camarones al ajillo and carne frito. YUM! And some more Gabi pics! Happy Sunday!
I’d love to start riding bike again, but got rid of mine a while ago. Sounds like you and your family had quite a busy but fun day. Yes, totally agree we all need a break every now and then, and looks like you did it up right!
Hey there! We just started getting back to the biking the last two months or so since we got Gabi’s trailer. It’s a far cry from what I used to do back in the day: I was doing a triathlon about every other month when I lived in phoenix about 4 years ago. Unfortunately location has sorta stopped that streak. What’s funny is, between the three of us (my husband, dad, and myself) we have 5 bikes. Plus gabi’s trailer. AND tricycle! Obviously check out craigslist for a good cheap bike. I’m amazed at the different muscles biking works in comparison to running. 😉
Yes, there is nothing wrong with taking a weekend off and enjoying each and every moment. Just go with the flow 🙂
