Tonight I spent roughly $20 doing 4 loads of laundry at the apartment. $20. Not kidding. I’m convinced this laundry cost had to somehow be an oversight on the landlord’s part… yet the price hasn’t gone down in well over a year.
Wash and Fold has to be cheaper than this.
Then I cried during an ASPCA commercial. You know which one I’m talking about. That commercial.
Heart. Wrenching. I started blubbering worse than Lindsay Lohan in court when she realized the judge actually didn’t find her F-You nail decals humorous and she was headed to the big house.
Since we were busy
spending our life savings doing laundry tonight, we didn’t get a chance to go grocery shopping just yet so dinner was a mish-mash of what we had left in the fridge.
Enter the Smorgasbowl!
While I folded and put away laundry, boyfriend whipped up a delicious feast.
He’s a really creative cook and I love seeing what he comes up with. I’m getting better, but for now we’ll just say I’m really good at following a recipe. And washing dishes.
In the bowl:
- Pulled Rotisserie Chicken
- Chopped Turkey Bacon
- Brown Rice
- Red Onion
- Parmesan cheese
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Splash of red wine
Which commercial/movie/music video gets the water works flowing for you?
The ASPCA commercials… forget it. I am a goner. I’ll spare you the gory details of what happened when boyfriend and I saw Marley and Me but the words “blubbering” “sobbing” and “bawling” come to mind. And yes, this was in a theater. I also refuse to ever watch Stepmom again. It’s pretty typical for me to cry during Biggest Loser, Grey’s Anatomy and Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Basically we’ll just accept the fact that I’m an emotional basketcase when it comes to these topics/shows.
