We had spaghetti squash and meatballs last night. I was hoping it would be as good as the first time and it really was.
I make the meatballs ahead of time using the recipe here and then put them in a freezer bag. Yesterday I just dumped some of the meatballs and a jar of pasta sauce in the crockpot and let it cook on low all day. All I had to do for dinner was roast some spaghetti squash. DONE!
I got the random idea yesterday to go see the midnight showing of The Hunger Games.
Around 9:30 I made some coffee thinking it would keep me awake.
I took a couple of sips and dumped it in the sink. I'd rather had green tea!
I stayed awake and went to see the movie with friends. The movie started at 12 and we got to the theater at 11. They had 16 showings at midnight at our theater. When we got there it was hard to find a seat. Isn't that insane?! I've never done a midnight thing before and today I know the reason why. The movie ended at 2:30. We made it home around 3 and I was in bed by 3:15. My kids were up at 6:15. Kids ruin all the fun!
This morning I was running on 3 hours of sleep. Was it worth it? YESSSS! The movie was incredible. I'd do the midnight showing again tonight if I could!
I made a green smoothie and tried the coffee thing again.
My only idea to stay awake and sane all day was to keep busy so that's what I did.
I met my sister early this morning to walk a 2.4 mile loop near us. Afterwards, we went to ABC for lunch.
Seriously, is that all we ever do?! I got a turkey sandwich on sourdough with extra turkey, tomato, lettuce and avocado. I figured the avocado would be a better choice over cheese or mayo. It was perfect. I also had a bowl of french onion soup which I ate maybe 2 bites of. I just wasn't feelin' it.
I did a few more errands but started to drag around 2:30. I stopped and got coffee-
A large iced mocha with skim milk. I've never ordered anything large at a coffee shop. It was a must today.
Now I'm buzzin' on caffeine! Off to start on some dinner. Cheesy bread for us tonight instead of pizza!
What do you do to stay awake when you are tired?
