Monday - Rainy with a bit of snow
A good day.
I got up a little late this morning, just as F decided to come home for a minute. Grr. I really dislike it when he just shows up like that. Go to work and stay there darn it. I had to fill up the kerosene tank in the heater too, so I reminded him to buy kerosene tonight.
He left and I settled in with breakfast and tea to watch The X-Files. Good stuff. I snoozed a bit and read blogs and such over the next couple of hours. If I had known that F was not going to come home, I would have done my workout, but I didn’t. I waited until after 1 and then did a couple of one mile walks. Yay me.
In the afternoon I did a few loads of laundry and took care of my computer stuff. I also watched the movie I’d DVR’d, 10 Things I Hate About You. I really enjoyed it. For some reason, I had totally managed to miss it for all this time. I was here in Japan, so maybe it didn’t come to Tsuruoka, or I was busy working, or whatever. Anyway, I liked it.
Just before 5, I decided to walk to the post office. I did quite quickly and bought a few stamps. Today I picked up some Miffy-chan stamps, more of the Winnie the Pooh ones, and some 20 yen stamps.
I came home and took a quick shower and then got started on dinner prep. I looked up some recipes and then started working on getting them ready. I didn’t know when F would be home, so it made prepping dinner a bit tough. I finally decided to cook the fish in foil on the fish grill. F came home a bit after 7 tonight and then went out for kerosene. I sprang into action, I heated up the oven to roast some broccoli, I boiled water for pasta and to heat up the sauce, and I put the fish on when he returned. I thought I had the timing down, but the fish didn’t cook quite on schedule. We had our pasta and sauce, the salad and the broccoli, but F wanted to cook the cod a little more. He put mine in the microwave and set the timer for 2 minutes. I objected since it was nearly ready. I made him take mine out at 20 seconds. It was fine. He did his for 2 minutes and I was quite upset. I think his must have been like rubber. He doesn’t like cod anyway, so I think he was being a jerk. Dinner was good, but I wanted to cry.
After dinner, I didn’t even offer to do the dishes, just got a verbal response from F that he was going to do them. I spent time on my computer until a little after 9 pm when I took over the TV for my show and a little knitting. I did a few rows and also put in a lifeline which I hope I won’t need. When my show finished I wrote up 4 postcards for Postcrossing, as I’ll probably have to skip next week.
F ate a lot of junk food tonight. He said his stomach was upset….but he had tortilla chips, ramen and a few other snacks. I did not.
Things are fine now and I don’t really care. I’m trying to get over the fish thing, but I hate cooking fish because I just don’t have the experience with it. Knowing that F doesn’t even like cod just made it worse. Last night when we bought it, I was so hoping he’d let me buy chicken, but of course he wouldn’t do that. Sigh.
Tomorrow we are going to have a more junky dinner. I’m making guacamole again, and we’ll have that with tortilla chips. I’m thinking I’ll make them as nachos, at least that’s my idea now. Come back a bit later and find out just what I end up doing. Until tomorrow….
