Above are some pictures of my adventure in making watermelon margaritas a couple weeks ago. Basically, I pureed cubed seedless watermelon in batches and strained it over a sieve into a pitcher. The first night I made them, I shook watermelon juice, a shot of tequila, half a shot of triple sec, and fresh lime juice in my drink shaker and poured into a sugar-rimmed margarita glass full of ice. That night I froze some of the juice in an ice cube tray and the next night I used the cubes plus the aforementioned ingredients to make frozen margaritas in the blender. The margaritas were good both ways, but I think I’m an “on-the-rocks” type of girl nowadays.
I’m also a “crappy blogger” type of girl these days.I just haven’t felt like it. Too many things are in my way. Not to complain but…well, actually I am gonna complain. (because it’s my blog, damn it) I have a laundry list of things getting me down lately, but the main issues boil down to these:
1. Infertility + weight gain + other health issues= diets that suck and don’t seem to work=bouts of complete denial in which I consume a year’s quota of sugar in one day.
2. A completely diabolical soon-to-be-ex-in-law who is making things nightmarish for my dearly loved family member and for the rest of us who have to stand by helplessly. And there’s little we can do to help because a friggin ocean separates us.
3. A general dissatisfaction with my occupation and the feeling of being trapped between duty of contributing to household expense and the desire to just quit and follow my little but wonderful dreams.
So, sorry to be a downer, but these are the things that have kept me from blogging lately. I haven’t felt much passion for anything I usually love, except perhaps for margaritas. (kidding…sort of). I am going to try my darndest to get back into the swing of things. Tomorrow I am going to start my day with a workout and a green smoothie (recipe to follow). Hopefully, I can get back to my Pollyana-ish self sooner than later.
