G'morning Julia & Menu peeps,

Up at the crack of dawn with thoughts of DS. Yesterday in texting with him asked him what was he up to. He said walking around campus exploring, which is good, but he was alone. Of course I'm all worried is he making friends, is he OK, is he down? Ugh!! So about 4:00 am I'm up and awake thinking all those thoughts.

Yesterday I finally received the personalized plate for my electric car. It's GASLEZZ, gasless or any other variation of no gas was taken. I really like the fact that I don't have to get gas especially with the recent prices. I don't know about where you guys are but the gas prices here in CA are about $4.00-$4.30.

QOTD: I honestly can't remember any favorite toy, so that means I wasn't attached to any of them. But my favorite possessions were my books. Every summer, as soon as I got my report card, my dad would take me to a book store. I could buy all the books I wanted to read for the summer. The only condition was that for every 3 books I chose my dad would choose a book for me. Usually it was a classic. And our deal was that by the end of summer I had to have read the books he chose for me. We would come home with the trunk of the car full of books and I remember being the happiest at those moments. It was like xmas in June.

Accountability: on point

My meals for the day:

  • Coffee, coffee, and more coffee
  • Chicken and avocado burrito (the insides) no beans/rice
  • Hb eggs + jalapeño tuna
  • Yogurt or parm cheese

Have a happy hump day.

I'm in Pittsburgh and gas is $2.89 a gallon today however Pennsylvania has some of the highest gas prices in the nation due to taxes.

What a great dad and what a fantastic approach to encouraging learning! I remember tons of books too, but never such a haul all at once. Such a good memory!

I'm betting your DS will make some wonderful friends!

Good morning, everybody! My quest to find grown up jeans continues. Now all of the jeans have arrived via mail and all fit except for the lengths, which I have to get taken up. I am not sure whether to take them to the tailor that takes up my suits, dress pants, etc. or whether jeans are more complicated and require a specialist. I will have to research that.

One pair has zippers that run diagonally across the legs. Did I seriously not notice that in the picture? They are fairly subtle, but I am somewhat concerned that whenever I put them on, I will feel like I am in Flashdance. What a feeeellling....

Anyways, as I was typing about the zippers, I took off my reading glasses to check what the magnification was, and realized that, in order to do so, I would need to go upstairs and get another pair of reading glasses. Pass. Just know that I should have spotted the zippers. This is how I rank the jeans as we sit here at the quarter pole:

1) Seven For all Mankind

2) Tom Ford

3) AG

4) True Religion (Thriller...)

I do like that they all have some stretchy material them. In order for me to become a Tom Ford guy, they will have to be much the best, for reasons that nobody should google.

QOTD: My two teddy bears (one of which Marilyn kept for me) and my orange Nerf football

Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese

Snack: Protein Bar

Lunch: Ahi Tuna Salad

Snack: Light and Fit

Dinner: Lamb

Have a great day, all!
