The World According to Lincoln

17 Jul

Arf Arf, this is Lincoln.

My momma still isn’t feeling well so I am going to write about today.

She fell asleep while watching Food Network. I was going in and out of sleep but I could still hear the tv on. First there was this loud, annoying brunette who kept saying things like “Yumm-o” and “E.V.O.O.” I have no clue what either of those mean. Next there was this couple making comfort food and couldn’t keep their hands off each other, I was a bit put off by this. The last show I remember was a southern woman with big hair making things with a lot of butter, I liked her and her food looked good.

My momma got up and decided to switch it up to the bedroom so we napped there for a while. She kept tossing and turning and so did I but eventually I had a dream about the cute Maltese I met yesterday who lives across the street from us. Her name is Sprinkles, she is cute and voluptuous. Momma got frustrated after a while with not being able to fall asleep so she got up to make something to eat. I don’t think she was too hungry but she needed something in her system so she made something she calls a green monster.

She broke out the blender and threw in some baby spinach, greek yogurt, ice, frozen blueberries, a banana and vanilla protein powder and blended for a long while. It was really noisy but it came out pretty and purple.

It must have been good b/c she slurped it up but I think she got a headache from drinking it too fast. We went back to the living room to watch tv and nap. She fell asleep to some show about wedding dresses but I really wish she would leave Animal Planet on if she is going to go to sleep so I can see some cute bitches. I’m stuck in this place all day and get to see some cuties when I go outside to do my thing but I like seeing bitches from other regions as well. Just like Ludacris, I want to have ho’s in different area codes. Throw a dog a bone!

This is my food, Chef Michael’s Rotisserie Chicken Flavor. I love this stuff–I think they lace it with doggie crack. I don’t really get too hungry during the day and am a night eater when momma is getting a good nights rest so she can rock it at work and pay for the both of us to live. And there’s always a lot of water, I need to stay hydrated!

We really didn’t do too much this afternoon, we went for a long walk before the rain started coming down and then just watched tv and cuddled, it was nice. She was watching this show called DC Cupcakes, about Georgetown Cupcake in DC, she was excited to watch the show because went there back in April and really enjoyed the cupcakes (but she kept saying that she liked Crumbs better).

Soon it was dinner time, momma bought some shrimp this morning along with stir fry vegetables such as mushrooms, zucchini and onion for a healthy, cheap meal.

I think she really enjoyed this she kept rubbing her belly and “Mmmmmm-ing” while eating it. She kept reaching for her water though so I think it was a tad too salty for her but she seemed satisfied afterwards. I hope we have more snuggle time later, her head hurts so I am sure that will be on the agenda!

Woof woof!

Ill Communication

17 Jul

Ma Bell,  I’m not feeling too hot right now and it hasn’t been too exciting the past few days but will do a little recap of food, drinks and other stuff.

Egg white, turkey, white american cheese and avocado breakfast wrap

Finally got “Heart of The Matter” from the library after three months of waiting!

Yoplait was handing out free yogurt on Thursday and I tried the vanilla. Since I am a fan of the greek yogurt, I was not impressed because it was thin and tart compared to the thicker stuff.

But then got a free Espresso Monster and it was frickin great! I would actually buy it in the store, it reminded me of Starbucks Double Shot. Click here if you would like to get a coupon for BOGO Starbucks Double Shot + Energy Coffee

Sweet Basil Pesto Chicken Sausage with grilled mushrooms, artichokes and spinach over brown rice

Drunk dog

Sober dog

Chocolate Chip Bagel with cream cheese—thanks work for the free breakfast!

Blueberry Juice Infused Craisins

I was off to meet up with some friends for happy hour last night, thank God 1Baby Girl was leading the way. I cannot stand personalized license plates (sorry if you have one–we can still be friends) and had to look at this the whole way but I guess 1Baby Girl was no going to get her drink on. My friends send me texts of random ones they see b/c they know this and when I see one I can’t figure out, it drives me mad.

We were meeting at San Antonio’s, which is a newer restaurant in town with an awesome drink special–$1 Margaritas, $2 Sangrias, $3 Beers. That right there is how you can reel me in! Little did I know, I would soon be calling it San Antoni—noooooo’s.

The Sangria—it was what you would expect a $2 Sangria to be but drinkable. They brought us a big platter of chips and salsa and sadly, the salsa was runny and bland. The service kinda sucked—our waitress was a bit clueless. I waitressed for six years so I have a lot of patience when I go out to eat but I felt like it was her first day or something. One of my friends ordered a mojito and the waitress had to ask how that was spelled. Whatever happened to menu knowledge?? Oi. I made the mistake of getting a margarita after the sangria to see what the $1 hype was all about it. The nice thing is they give you the option of adding a shot of tequila for $1 extra which made it a tad strong but it just did not taste good. And it was weird—after sitting out for awhile it separated into two blocks of ice within the cup. I wish I would have taken a picture because it looked like a margaritas science experiment gone wrong.

Pollo Nachos. Look at all that gooey cheese and jalapenos–yum! These tasted great however when I was a few bites in, something weird happened. I had a wave of nausea come over me, was light-headed, sweating, started seeing spots and couldn’t hear anyone talking to me but had an intense ringing noise in my head. The girls at the table looked at me because I did a 180 in mood and they were talking to me and I just couldn’t hear them. I grabbed my water and chugged it and I’ve fainted, had strep, mono, you name it but had never felt like this before. I wanted to go to the bathroom to get away from all the noise but feared if I got up, I would faint. One of the girls gave me some tums and my stomach settled down a bit so that was one less thing to worry about. Eventually it went away and I could hear and see normal again but then it came back. They were suggesting perhaps an anxiety attack which I’ve never had and don’t know why I would have since I was in the company of food, drinks and friends which are some of my favorite things. Then one of them mentioned a migraine. Now I’ve had headaches before and I thought I’ve had migraines but apparently not. I got home ok and felt like crap the rest of the night. I laid on the couch with Lincoln in the dark and watched tv at a very low volume. I couldn’t fall asleep because my head was pounding and my stomach was cramping.  I just felt horrible and felt bad that I was being a Debbie Downer of sorts and ruining the evening for everyone (and only finishing a 1.3 of the nachos, I think that is a first for me)

 I woke up early this morning still feeling off but I was ok to get up and move around. I took Lincoln out and while he was dropping the kids off in the grass, he started scooting on the grass so doo-doo all over his butt. Beautiful. This is exactly what I want to deal with at 6A after a horrible night so I had to take him in the yard and hose his booty off and make sure it was all gone. This right here? Is how much I love this little dog (and my new rugs)

I was starving afterwards and made an egg white, white american cheese and tomato sandwich on a honey wheat sandwich thin

I wasn’t feeling the sandwich at first but then I saw this cheese oozing out and knew it was meant to be

I always feel like, somebody’s watching me

That being said, I still don’t feel well. My stomach hurts, my head is aching a bit and I am just feeling off. I hate not feeling well when it is beautiful out so I am hoping the day takes a turn for the worse and it gets cloud and rains again. Off to curl in a fetal position with Lincoln! Hope everyone’s weekend is off to a better start!
