Parental Picnic

The past several days have been busy. I'm overwhelmed and instead of wallowing in stress and the changes in my life (Seriously, I can't drive?!? When will Danny's training end?!? Is wine really that bad for me?!?) I'm trying to make a conscious effort to change my frustrated attitude. I cooked and hosted dinner for my parents tonight, trying to distract myself from all the crazy things going on in my life.

Kale salad w/cucumber
Zucchini stuffed with tomato/basil/a bit of sheep cheese (thanks Laura!)
Grilled chicken breast

Then, I printed a 10k schedule to get back on track with my workouts. Now, it's an early bedtime to finish my love affair with a book Green lent me, Bel Canto by Ann Patchett.

I've heard somewhere that when in doubt, do something nice for someone else. It will cheer you up. So, I used my parents to make myself better :) Luckily, they didn't seem to mind.

    Looks like a lovely dinner in a beautiful setting! Love you Jess for all of the positive feelings that you give to us all! "Keep on truckin" girl because I know for a fact that you have MANY YEARS ahead of you!!!

  2. Honey, we loved your alfresco dinner. The food was gourmet, the conversation enlightening, and the atmosphere calming. Your father and I left for home in a 'calm and submissive state'. We love you always and forever. su mamasita
