Journal Entry #242

I am going through such a funk. I still haven’t heard back about that personal loan, I am PMSing, super crabby, and super hungry. All I’ve been doing is wasting my time, moping around the apartment…

I haven’t even written a journal entry since Saturday. 😛 I got super drunk that night before and at work but, still did okay profit-wise… that’s good, I guess… but, what was even better was having breakfast with boyfriend when I got off.

We always go to Blueberry Hill because no other 24/7 diner beats it.

I got the biscuits and gravy with over easy eggs and three sausage links while boyfriend got his rightful fave, the breakfast meatloaf with home fries and eggs done the same way as mine. Everything was so scrumptious!!!

On Sunday, we didn’t feel like doing much (do we ever?) but, since it was so beautiful out, we took a walk to La Bahia for dinner.

We ordered all of our food to-go but, as we waited for it to be made, we were given complimentary chips with salsa and beans. I loved both dips.

To share, we tried sopas (with beef) for the first time. They reminded me of bite-sized hard shell tacos. The pickled veg in the middle was probably the best part.

Boyfriend ordered mixed meat shish kebabs with shrimp, chicken, and beef. It was alright but, rather dry… everything was a bit overcooked– especially the shrimp.

I got what I always get… chicken, with a fried plantain, plantain chips, red beans and rice, and a little salad. This never disappoints and I was given the biggest piece of chicken, ever.

I spent the rest of my day playing Sims 4.

On Monday, we had to go grocery shopping. I was lazy and late to get up so by the time we made it to Sprouts, we were both extremely hungry. When we finished crossing everything off of our list, we stopped at the deli and ordered a HOT sandwich but, ended up getting a cold one. 😡

We noticed they missed some of the toppings, too… it was NOT a good first impression, Sprouts sandwich makers.

They are lucky it was still yummy because the havarti cheese saved the day. I could eat blocks of that stuff– I just couldn’t be around people for awhile afterwards (which I don’t really mind!). I also liked that red paste smeared between the turkey meat, I forget what it was though.

It did its job of holding us over until boyfriend finished making dinner then, I spent my entire day browsing YouTube and playing games…

We did have to make a quick run to Albertson’s in the middle of the night though because we ran out of coffee and toilet paper. We picked up this beautiful cheesecake and shared it.

I’m still dreaming about it now.

On Tuesday, I had a bright idea of buying a bottle of Patron and getting ready for work. In this funk, drinking isn’t always the best for me. I ended up staying home (duh, who wouldn’t have guessed, right?) but, at least, we didn’t go out to the bar. I kind of needed that night, to be honest. I’ve been straight stressin’ for weeks.

Yesterday, I just “Hulu and chilled.” I caught up on all my shows so I had to find a new one to binge. The OC popped up in my recommendations… and after all these years, I FINALLY GAVE IT A SHOT– thanks so much to Britney!! She has told me a few times that I’d enjoy it so I knew I just had to when I saw it and… well… she definitely knows my taste!! I watched like 5 episodes in a row until I fell asleep with Sushi on my lap. ❤

Who is so sophisticated and always crosses his paws like this. 😀 I promised Courtney I’d get a photo next time I caught him but, that’s really just an excuse to share him with you all, hehe.

Today, we heated up some leftovers for dinner. Boyfriend made homemade hummus for the first time (earlier this week) and now, I totally get why people say buying it pre-made is crazy. It was easy for him, it uses such a small amount of ingredients, and we both thought it tasted amazing– even better than store bought.

I watched the new Star episode while I ate but didn’t get to finish it before we had to leave for coffee. Now, it’s already 8 PM and I gotta get ready for work.

Hope you have a nice weekend!!

  1. Sorry that you’re dealing with so much stress and going through a funk. ☹️

    I’m seriously drooling over all the food featured in this post though … like I want it all! Seeing all the cool places you go out to eat makes me want to be more adventurous with my own meal choices!!

  2. Aw I’m sorry you’re in such a funk Hunida, it can be really disheartening to feel this way, when you’re waiting to hear back about certain situations etc etc! But there is always light at the end of the tunnel and it’s all going to work out perfectly for you! ❤️❤️ Sometimes we need the down days to appreciate the good! Your Summery days will be back soon!!! I promise! ❤️

  3. Ohh my gosh Sushi is too cute! Thanks for getting the picture for me. 😉 I’m always up for cat photos lol! Also that diner food looks so good! Makes me want to get IHOP lol. Did the biscuits and gravy bother your stomach with the dairy? Or did that gravy not have dairy?

    1. I tried to send it to you through Pinterest but, I don’t think you can send photos in the messenger then I was like I’m gonna e-mail it to her… but I was like “okay never mind I’ll just not be a crazy cat mom & put it in a journal entry” LOL.

      I haven’t been to IHOP in forever!! Hope you get to go soon. 🙂 The gravy totally messed with my stomach but, I think almost everything in this post had dairy in it… I couldn’t help myself this week I guess LOL.

      1. Oh! Yeah Pinterest is weird in that way. I think you can only send pins & text. Email would have worked too haha but I’m glad you included it in the journal entry!! Too cute.

        IHOP is so good lol! I think I go there for every bday breakfast haha. Thankfully it’s a chain, so it will still be in VA! 😉 Aw I’m sorry the gravy made your stomach upset! Sometimes it’s so hard to say no to all the delicious things lol.

        1. That’s weird you can send pins but not photos!

          I remember these crunchy crusted french toast I tried at IHOP once. They were so delish lol. I should go back & see if it’s still there!! It really is hard to say no dairy, especially when I’m PMSing… the flavor is worth the pain hahaha.

  4. I hope that you feel better soon, Hunida! I get the worst PMS symptoms, and it’s just so brutal -___- When you’re in a funk, it just makes everything so much worse ugh! I’m glad that you got a chance to unwind and watch the OC, though. I remember watching a couple of episodes back in the day, but I gotta get back into it now!

    Girl, that diner food looks absolutely delicious!! Gotta love a 24/7 diner!

    Enjoy your weekend, darling! x

    1. Thank you, Nunzia! ❤ My PMS symptoms are so brutal, too. Ugh, isn't it the worst? You should totally get back into The OC. 🙂

      Hope you had a nice weekend, too, babe! ❤

  5. Aaaaaand once again, BF is the Master Chef. I tried making homemade hummus recently and it was terrrible!!!! I have no idea what I did wrong. Sigh.

    I was getting ready to ping you to see if you were ok as it HAD BEEN awhile since you blogged. I’m sorry you’re in a funk right now and hope it passes soon. Funks suck!!!!

    Those biscuits and gravy!!!!! That cheesecake!!!!

    Awww I love that kitty!!!!

    1. The hummus he made was out of garbanzo beans, I can send you the recipe since it won’t be up in my reviews for awhile. If you want?

      Aw yes, I’m physically okay!! LOL thank you for being concerned ❤ funks do suck!!

      The kitty would love you, too. He is a people kitty. 😉

      I will def check out Dead To Me!!

      1. I have recipes so I’m sure the problem is just me. I know it’s just garbanzos, Tahini, garlic & lemon. My friend doesn’t even bother with the Tahini and hers is amazing. I’ve decided since I don’t eat it that often I can justify the ridiculous price and just buy some whenever I get a craving for it. LOL But thanks for offering!

  6. Omg all that food looks delish 🤤
    I know what you mean about it being a bad idea to drink while in a funk, I’m the same way. I hope you’re doing better!
    I’d be depressed if I got a cold sandwich instead of a hot one 😣
    Your kitty is so cute btw 💕

    1. The food was all pretty awesome. 😀 BUT YES, we were both pretty depressed about the cold sandwich lol.

      Drinking when you’re in a funk can sometimes bring you down more, huh? It’s nice to know someone else gets the same way. ❤

      Kitty says 'thank you!' 😉 ❤

  7. I feel like I’ve wasted this whole first part of my day, so it somewhat makes me feel better that I’m not alone in having days like that! Blueberry Hill really does look like the ultimate comfort food – biscuits and gravy are one of my favorite things on planet earth. I feel like when (God willing) when I’m pregnant that is gonna be the food I crave haha.

    Oohh that fried plantain is jumping off to me- yummy yum. I just had plantain chips for the first time last weekend and they are so gooood. (I’ve had regular fried plantains which I do love before though!).

    What a bummer about the Sprouts sandwich! They probably totally gave you the wrong order- how frustrating. Nothing that gets my goat more than a wrong food order, lol.

    That cheesecake really is beautiful!

    Ahhh I love the OC! This makes me wanna rewatch it.

    Hahahha Sushi really does look like he is all class with his paws like that.

    Ok I’ve made hummus at home several times and never have liked it. What recipe did you use? I think I use too much tahini in mine or something.

    1. Aw I’m glad I could make you feel better in any way. ❤ It's always nice to know we're not alone.

      Blueberry Hill is the perfect drunk go-to spot lol. I could totally see pregnant you constantly craving biscuits & gravy hahha!

      Both fried plantains & plantain chips are so yummy! & seriously, they probably did give us the totally wrong sandwich at Sprouts. 😦 It's the worst when that happens, right?! & I'm STILL dreaming about that cheesecake lol. I just hadn't had any in so long I think.

      I haven't got back to the OC yet but I can't wait to!! I never watched it because I heard so many spoilers already, I didn't think it'd be enjoyable anymore but it is. 🙂

      Sushi totally thinks he's high class & boss of all cats, that little stinker LOL.

      Boyfriend used this recipe for the hummus: http://www.nutritiouseats.com/power-chicken-hummus-bowl-panera-copycat-recipe/

      I hope it works for you! 🙂

      1. I’m the same way about shows- if I feel like I know any spoilers I have less drive to start it because I’m like, “What’s the point- I already know what happens?!”.. but the story line and character development in the OC is pretty phenomenal!!

        Ah thank you for the recipe!! Can’t wait to try it out!!

  8. All the food looks good! I would honestly love some cheesecake but I’m trying to cut back on a lot of stuff again I slipped up and I’m starting on square one 😦 lol
    That sucks they messed up your order how do you fuck up a hot with a cold sandwich? And how do you miss toppings? Lol clearly they weren’t paying attention.
    I think Alex has been wanting me to watch the OC he says I’d like it too I have no idea what it is about but since you say it’s on hulu I’ll look for it.

    1. I eat so many sweets, it’s ridiculous. I need to cut back, too! & seriously… they were not paying any attention when they made our sandwich order lol.

      The OC is basically just a teen/family drama based in Orange Country. I watched like 5 episodes & liked it. I wonder if you would, too!

      1. Funny story, I was finishing up serving our dinner and Alex was turning on the PS3 and was coming back to the kitchen when I said “hey so apparently the OC is on Hulu now”. I kid you not, he fucking ran to the living room to put Hulu on and find it! XD
        He made me watch it haha so yeah we’re watching it now. It’s so freaking predictable so I don’t find it as enjoyable but it’s a good watch LOL

        1. Hahahaha! Oh I haven’t went back to the OC yet but if Alex loves it that much, there must be some good stuff that happens later that we need to see! It’s so fucking predictable to me, too, though. ESPECIALLY because I know half the spoilers already.

          1. I hope so, I want to be surprised for once LMAO. And Alex has just always said how he wants me to watch it, so I’m not familiar with any spoilers, but I might as well know them right? I mean, its so predictable! LOL
