Hi everyone. I need to vent and I KNOW you'll all understand.
An old friend whom I haven't seen in a long time is coming to town this weekend and wants to see me. I suggested doing brunch or dinner or whatever, trying to be as flexible as I can. She is kosher, and rather than just come to a TERRIFIC vegan/kosher restaurant that I love, she is insisting on a kosher place with (as far as I can tell) no vegan options. She said there are vegan options and I'm waiting to hear what they are, because the menu didn't look vegan to me at all. I'm just so irritated. I know she's the one from out of town, but I've bent over backwards being available at the time that works for her and at a place that suits her dietary needs, but there's no reciprocation. This seems to happen to vegans so much more than to people with other dietary needs. If someone has a religious need, like being kosher, no one questions it, but veganism seems flexible to non-vegans.
Anyway, it's just driving me batty since there's been all this back and forth over a stupid meal. I suggested just getting coffee after her brunch (which she was just lumping me into with someone else anyway), and she won't just accept that as a decent new suggestion.
Other than this, I've been extraordinarily lazy today. I didn't work out; the only physical thing I did was clean my place, which isn't even big so I can't count that. I'm kind of annoyed with myself, but at the same time I know I did a lot of decent cardio over the other four days this week, so I suppose it's not the worst thing to take a rest day.
B: oatmeal w/flaxseed, green tea
L: sweet potato w/guacamole, berry smoothie, apple
S: bowl of cereal w/almond milk
D: soba vegetable soup, avocado sushi
Dessert: not sure. Options are: hot chocolate, apple, berry smoothie. I won't let myself have a second bowl of cereal!
I really hope you're all in a better state of mind than I am. Thanks for letting me vent here.
