Hot husband at La Jolla Cove. I've never seen him more relaxed. He loves the beach so much.

Another favorite pic from San Diego. Wish we were still there lying on the beach together.

This week has really gone quickly! I've been busy doing a little bit of everything: cooking, reading, job searching, creating and running around with the kids. I'm in one of those reading phases again. In the beginning of the week, I went to the library and came back with 5 books. I've read 2 already and I'm working on the rest of the stack. Next up is Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Wish me luck on that classic! I'm proud of myself this week. I've managed to get back on track with my meatless eating. As long as I take it one day at a time, it's not so overwhelming. I ate so much meat in San Diego. It's amazing how one tumble from grace can lead to the old patterns so quickly. When we were flying home, I thought about all the half finished ideas and projects that fill my life. I'm so very tired of incomplete things. I thought to myself, "what if I pick just one of those ideas and stick with it?". Eating meatless was at the top of my list. Maybe because it's one of the most challenging for me. It takes a tremendous amount of discipline to stay meatless. One of the pivotal moments for me was in San Diego. We were in our hotel room on the last night munching on some curried chicken salad while we packed. Quite a few bites had some cartilage and I was grossed out by it. I remember thinking two things:

1. This is ridiculous. Why am I eating this if it grosses me out?

2. I bet this would be so delicious made with tofu instead of chicken.

And so, I take my seat back on the vegetable truck. I hope for good this time. Go over to the meatless blog. I've written a fun post today that I think you'll enjoy. Happy Friday!!
