Let go

Friday I was let go from my job. No particular reason. It has been slow. I'm not too upset. I wanted to be out before the madness of mother's day and I am. I would have prefered to wait another week or two though. Tutition is over due and we are going to DC for Sakura Matsuri in two weeks. But I know we'll be fine. I am actually happy that I am not working right now. I have no reason to wake up super early, will be able to cook everyday, and now have more time for school. We are now also going to be shifting to a much simpler living mode. Something that is a good idea anyway.
Right now I am planning our summer veggie garden.
The summer is going to be a great time to grow some organic veggies on the patio. Cheap fresh veggies & herbs what more could we want!
So far I'm planning on all organic:
mesculin greens
baby spinach
bell peppers
string beans

Im excited to be trying out growing organic veggies. I really try to watch what we eat in terms of organic and not. Some vegetables are more important to get organic than others. Here is a list that is a good guide to when it pays for organic and not.

Spring break is almost over and i'm sort of excited to get back to classes. Although there is a slightly scary accounting mid term that takes place over two days.

Some things I thought about today:
-I really love cooking, alot.
-Our backyard could use some lawn flamingos.
-20 days till we go to D.C. for Sakura matsuri.
-A year ago I was getting ready to leave for Tokyo.
- I really miss Tokyo :(
-Tokyo really misses me!
-We seriously need to fold the 5 baskets of laundry in our apartment.
-I can't wait for Sunday, I will be off after working a week straight.

Things I need to do:
-Finish knitting my sizzle sweater. I am 3/4 of the way done.
-Read for my Global Issues class.
-Enjoy pizza on Friday.
-Do/Fold laundry.
-Use up some groceries in the pantry.
-Keep drinking milk and remember to take my vitamins.
-Make Matty some lunch.
-Make more bentos.

I also lost 2.6 pounds this week for a total of 5.4 pounds since starting weight watchers 3 weeks ago!
I've been really good about following the plan and am very proud of myself. The biggest thing that I have learned is that just because there is one little (or not so little!) mess up not to let that throw the whole week into a not so good tailspin.
