The new month feels a little shorter when you sleep through the first week of it. I’m finally starting to feel like myself again after losing the battle to cold-maggedon (thank you Sudafed and Robitussin!). Today will be the first time I get dressed and leave the house for longer than a trip to CVS for tissues (sad, I know). I heard something about having two gorgeous days this week that were in the 60’s and 70’s, but it was hard to enjoy them in bed.
Here’s what I have on tap for the remainder of the month:
Try: Something about coming down with a cold has made me want to cook (or maybe it was that it was the only thing I could do without leaving the house?). Whatever the reason, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to make my beloved Fettuccine Alfredo healthier. And I think I found it. I’m not a huge fan of avocados (something about their mushy consistency turns me off), but I can’t deny the health benefits that their green goodness offers. With that in mind, I’d like to make an avocado cream sauce for my fettuccine. And in case you think all the Sudafed has affected my head, check out these recipes here and here.
See: The appointment I made many months back with a new endocrinologist is almost here. I’m looking forward to meeting this doctor who has come highly recommended, and I’m hopeful she will be able to help me feel more energetic.
Go: I’m really excited to be going to Philadelphia this month. It’s going to be a quick trip, but it will be nice to get away and explore a new City. I’m planning on touring the Eastern State Penitentiary, a 186-year old abandoned prison that I first learned about on this blog. Apologies if that doesn’t sound like your version of a good time, but this political science/criminology major always enjoys learning about correctional institutions — especially abandoned ones (remember my post about Alcatraz?). But I’m open to suggestions on other things to see and do while I’m in town. Feel free to leave your favorite places in the comments below!
Do: There’s always something fun to do in New York City, and thanks to Elana at Elana Lyn, I’ve added a visit to The Butterfly Conservatory at the American Museum of Natural History and the Sex and the City Tavern Tour to my itinerary this month.
What’s on your agenda this month?
