"Midnight" Madness and Dancing With The Stars

So, I would like to introduce you all to my wonderful Black Labrador... His name is Midnight. I absolutely love this dog and I am very saddened to inform you all that we have to find a new home for him. We recently moved to a place where the owner originally told us that we could bring him with us here. Well, almost a month after we moved in, we have been informed that we can no longer have him here anymore. So, we have had the stress of trying to find an immediate new home for our awesome dog! We have been blessed by the sister of one of my co-workers who is going to take him and I know she is going to take good care of him. It is a very bitter-sweet feeling. I am so sad to lose my Midnight but I am definitely very happy that he will still be in a good home. I will very much miss him! :-( Can you believe that I am actually tearing up just writing about this?!?!?!?!? So, tomorrow afternoon, my Midnight will be living with another family. So, moving on because that is very sad to me. Sorry to be so depressing...

So, what did I eat today? Hmm.....

This morning I simply had a bowl of cereal with some strawberries. This is the Stater Bros. (local grocery store) brand version of Honey Nut Cheerios. I was being pretty lazy so I just had this bowl of cereal and a glass of orange juice.
Then for lunch, I tried one of these CedarLane Burritos. At first I wasn't quite sure if I was going to enjoy but I actually liked it better than I thought I would. I'm not quite sure how healthy it (it is a frozen burrito, after all) but here are the nutrition facts. They were pretty filling but kind of pricey.
I accompanied this burrito with some Salsa Verde Doritos and some grapes. And I brought them all to work in my handy-dandy lunch box that I got from coaching my son's basketball team.

And as for my dinner, it so ridiculous that I chose not to take a picture. It was just one of those French Bread Pizzas by Red Baron. Totally not healthy but I love them and they're easy.

So, I just finished watching the finale for Dancing With The Stars. I don't know about you all, but I LOVE this show! It makes me really want to take some dance classes. I love to see the progress that some of the stars make - especially the ones that start off not so good and then become one of the contenders. Anyhow, tonight was a really good finale! And the person that I wanted to win was the winner! Good Job Shawn!!! (not that she would ever read this) i would love to be on this show.... Too bad I'm not a star. :-( I just wanted to throw that out about this show because I really enjoy it.

I hope everyone's week is going well so far! Mine has started off rough but I hope it gets better from here. I'm sure it will!
