Hello strangers! I haven’t seen your lovely faces in far too long. I think we’re overdue for some quality time together; I miss you like crazy! Thank you so so much for all the well-wishes on my last post as well as the bevvy of emails, tweets, and texts asking if I’m still in fact alive! I am! I’ve managed to graduate from full on zombie to only partial zombie today, which is pretty epic if you ask me. Also epic? Watching your pets try to one-up you. The ever-adorable Bullet the Ferret decided to partake in my plague this week and has been napping by my side non-stop these past few days. Poor little guy. Maddie [aka the jerk posing as a fluffy kitty] got jealous and decided she wanted in on the fun too. I wont gross you out with her antics, but I will mention I have a lot of laundry to fold right now. It’s only a matter of time before my other half decides to toss his cookies on my lap. My life is nothing if not glamorous =)
So today I decided to be a gem an actually participate in my own party. I have a party hat on and everything. Or possibly just my birthday suit… but you’ll never know! Muahaha! I’m only kidding… I promise not to terrify you like that again.
So if you’ve been insanely curious as to what I’ve managed to eat while plaguing it up, here’s a highlight from one of my ultra-swanky sick days. Don’t laugh.
My slightly boring breakfast consisted of a bakery croissant, banana, black coffee, and boatload of water. Lunch was ramen and a la croix lime, followed by another bowl of ramen about an hour later when I realized I was still freaking famished. I use the noodles from the little pouch-o-ramen and then add my own seasoning blend. This time it consisted of veggie broth, garlic, parsley, cayenne pepper, and a little bit of hot sauce. Dinner was another croissant topped with my veggie tuna salad, lettuce, tomato, and a few tuna lettuce wraps on the side. Sick days are clearly carb days around here.
All hail the croissant.
The commissary on base has the fluffliest, flakiest, non-greasiest croissants I’ve ever tasted. I’m in love.
Enough of my shenanigans — let’s see what you’ve been eating!
