A Boy’s Job.
Thank you all so much for your amazing responses to the first post where I really poured my heart out. It felt so good. To be honest, I am not afraid of rejection. Trust me, I expect to be rejected thousands of times. But when it is something that I really want, the fear or rejection doesn’t stop me.
Last night, I decided to shovel the driveway. This was really the first time shoveling for me, because, well . . . I lived in a house with a father and 2 brothers, and now I live in a house with a husband. Yes, I may be a brat – but that doesn’t meant it isn’t a man’s job. :)
And while living at home, it’s not like my brothers did much work either. But just knowing there were 2 boys in the house that should could do the work before me? I certainly wasn’t doing much manual labor.
However, my hubby has a looooong commute to and from work. I knew that after his long drive home and few hours in the gym, he’d feel like he had to come home and shovel, given his recent addiction.
I decided to shovel so we could spend some time together and he wouldn’t be shoveling at 11pm. It was a purely selfish decision.
This is about 1/4 of the drive.
My shoveling job wasn’t pretty, and wasn’t nearly as concise as my ‘more-type-A-than-me’ husband. But it got the job done.
And this is what I was wearing.
Overall, I enjoyed the shoveling experience. Our driveway is huge, and at first it was very daunting and overwhelming. I felt like I would never, ever finish. But it was peaceful being outside in the snow.
Except for the deer that I could see laying down in the woods. I was sure it was planning it’s attack.
After my thighs defrosted I was off to make dinner, which I was super excited about.
I grilled some cod with old bay, and used La Tortilla Factory tortillas – they are my favorite with lots of fiber + protein. I also love the texture and the taste.
To the tacos I added:
TJ’s roasted corn
lemon + lime juice
These were so delicous! They tasted so fresh and sweet. I would have preferred to use halibut, but I couldn’t find it in my neck of the woods. It was still mighty tasty.
