Adoption · Japan · Life · Weight Loss

Organizing, food & diet, and TV…

I hate rain (and cold).  Have I mentioned that like 35278508635 times yet?  My hometown is sunshiny for the majority of the year.  Moving to Japan I got SAD really bad.  You know what else I hate about rainy days?  They’re boring.  Yeah I’ve been watching TV all day, but because I can’t go outside and do anything I’ve also been eating a lot.  Not because I’m hungry but because I’m bored.  There’s only so much TV a person can watch.  Besides that I organized all our adoption paperwork (the two most paper heavy organizations got their own folders), and I put the other NPOs in a separate folder.  In addition to organizing the adoption paperwork, I also organized the shit storm that was Mamoru’s idea of organizing our house paperwork (basically shove all of it into a plastic file box until it explodes).  Our apartment paperwork, wifi paperwork, appliance paperwork, and IKEA receipts each got their own separate highly organized folder.  There’s a reason I list “organized” on my resume.  Actually, it was just my plan to organize the adoption stuff, but we’re in the process of collecting documents for an NPO at the moment, so I had to find the floor plan of our apartment which was in Mamoru’s bursting at the seams file box.  Because I couldn’t find it immediately, I got frustrated and decided that Mamoru’s method isn’t acceptable anymore.  Now it’s beautifully organized and labeled.  Everything is easy to find now.  In that box I found phone cables for landlines.  I’ve never used nor plan to use a landline in Japan.  I had to laugh.

I made a plan to drink that wine Mamoru got me for White Day.  I’m making a lovely dinner for us on Sunday.  I couldn’t decide between enchiladas or low carb lasagna (made with zucchini instead of noodles) but I figured lasagna would be a better pair for the wine, and I’ll make enchiladas tomorrow, so it’s a win/win.  I made the sauce today.  To be honest I had never made homemade enchilada sauce before (America makes it too easy not to), but it turned out fabulously (and of course it’s low carb because fuck all the recipes with flour in them).  It’s a little spicy but a lot delicious.

Isn’t it beautiful?

I’m back down in the 63s (kg), but I’m sure I fucked that up by today’s boring as fuck eating day.  I feel like it was so much easier to lose weight before I got preggo.  Ugh I just want to get back to my goal weight.  Go away boredom and junk food (that I stocked the house with while pregnant).  I feel like it’s so wasteful to just throw it away.  I guess if I eat like one potato chip a day, I’ll finish off the bag in like a month and it won’t affect my diet.  (Insert eye roll here.)

I guess that’s it.  I’m off to watch some more TV and try not to die of boredom.  Hoping my sunny days come back soon!  Be well.
