I’m one of those people that can’t eat their feelings. I don’t get pleasure out of watching sappy movies, listening to depressing music, or drinking up a storm when it comes to dealing with hard times. The only thing that works is a good workout. It makes me feel energized, happy, and strong. I started yesterday morning with a good walk with Grumples, had an afternoon run, and great walk with Samantha in the evening and another walk with Grumps at midnight. (don’t worry, I had my stun gun.) That is how I deal with emotions and it’s the best form of release. I do want you all to know that your support has meant so much to me. It’s incredible how people you’ve never met can build you up and make you realize it’s going to be OK.
I think having amazing friends here in Charlotte has a lot to do with it as well. I’m getting mixed feelings about leaving. I might hold off until after the summer and just slowly move my stuff into my new apartment down there. We’ll see.
Last night after our walk, we made dinner together.
We had teriyaki chicken, steamed bourbon broccoli, and a side salad. The salad had Pico, Italian dressing, Mexican Cheese, and pepper.
*For the chicken, I marinated it in low sodium teriyaki sauce for a couple hours. I then added it to a greased baking sheet and baked each side for 10 minutes on 375 degrees. I made a ton last night, so we can eat it throughout the week.
*The broccoli was steamed, and then sautéed up in a frying pan with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil and *1 tbsp of bourbon marinade.

We ate out on the patio together (while Grumples creeped around the table) After dinner, I took Grumps for a long walk.
