4:10 am: Time to get up! Wait…it’s only 4:10? Ugh. I’m sort of hungry…
5:45 am: Time to get up! Ew, it’s going to be so cold tonight.
6:00 am: Crisis. Only one banana left. Do I have it in oats this morning, or as my snack this afternoon?
6:01 am: snack this afternoon.
6:05 am: I really need to get back in my photo groove and start taking more aesthetically appealing food photographs…
-enter blogging and breakfast here.-
6:30 am: I have no idea what I am having for lunch. I don’t have anything made. Ugh.
6:31 am: Chickpea salad.
– pack lunch.-
6:55 am: All done. I hate this sweatshirt. I really need to do laundry.
7:00 am: WHERE ARE ALL OF MY SOCKS?
7:02 am: Whatever. This works too.
7:03 am: Crawl on hands and knees looking for lens hood that just fell off your camera because you were taking a picture of your feet.
7:10 am: Get ready to brave the outdoors. Warming up gertrude comes first
This is warm compared to what it’s supposed to be tomorrow.
7:12 am: Feed Thing 1 and Thing 2.
7:17 am: Play with icicles.
7:22 am: Say “see ya lata!” to the puppernaut and set sail for the
wild blue yonder barn.
8:00 am: Thank God for the temperature dropping – I would have broke a sweat with that extreme heat from before.
8:02 am: Wish you had a real winter coat for the barn. Start picking out the mares & teddie’s runs.
8:08 am: Reach face freeze point. Can’t feel face. Mittened hands are cold ad making photography extremely difficult. Persevere.
Jewel is so unpleased by Teddie’s actions.
What a dashing young lad.
8:24 am: Really can’t feel face. Leave for work.
8:48 am: Decide coffee is necessary, even though you’ve already had your cup.
Mostly decaf, anyway. And a cup that size lasts me all morning into afternoon! Though the real reason I stopped was because I didn’t think I’ packed enough food.
Was overjoyed to find a KIND bar at the gas station. Wonder if anyone else ever buys them, as the code isn’t even in the system.
8:58 am: Arrive at work. Furnace is broken. Oh yay.
10:00 am: I’m hungry.
And want my “vitamins.”
Notice bar is really out-dated.
Decide you want crackers and hummus anyways.
12:24 pm: Holy moly it’s lunch time. Hm. Maybe I’d rather make an open-faced pb & pear sandwich with my bread than just use it for dipping into my chickpea salad…
2:00 pm: Am I hungry? I think I’m hungry. Oh, maybe I just want a ginger chew…
3:45 pm: Okay now I’m hungry. Bypass banana, save it for tomorrow. Try KIND bar. Ooooh – ver ver good!
4:01 pm: Why are all these customers asking me my name all of a sudden today? Am I being rude? Are they going to report me?
5:26 pm: Almost time to go. I’ll do busy work until then.
5:28 pm: Outta here.
Always grab a piece of dried mango to tide (is that the correct spelling?) me over. So good, too. Except sometimes I feel like I’m ripping into flesh. How creepy am I?
5:40 pm: Train? You’ve got to be kidding. What am I going to have for dinner?!
5:45 pm: I’ve got to cook that eggplant. That’ll take a while though. But I’ve got to cook it. Crap. I need gas. It’s too cold to get gas! I don’t have enough good karma built up for my tank to not freeze tonight with only 1/8th of a tank, though.
6:01 pm: This gas pump doesn’t have an auto shut-off! It’s cold out! I’m hungry!
6:02 pm: Oh forget it. My tank is full enough and I can’t feel my face. The church bells weren’t making me any happier. I’m hungry.
6:11 pm: I’ve got it! I’ll put the eggplant in the toaster oven to bake and take a shower while it bakes!
6:15 pm: Crap. Cop. Oh no. Oh no. Oh phew, it’s not. Wait, I’m not even speeding.
6:30 pm: Foodzie! Yay! Okay, eggplant. Oh, I should use up these mushrooms, too. Okay.
6:42 pm: I don’t think I shower long enough to give that time to bake. And I’m hungry.
6:50 pm: Crap. This still needs another 30+ minutes. I’m starving. I don’t care what, but I’m eating.
6:52 pm: This is randomly delicious. I knew I left all those burgers in the freezer for a reason.
8:26 pm: Why did I start out writing this post saying “your,” and now I’m saying “I”?
