Looks like I’m not the only one to stress over something like mistakenly being undercharged for something — guess I’m not quite as crazy as I thought! 😉
Because of this lovely snow, I don’t want to wear my Ugg boots; I spent too much money to ruin them! So I wore wellies instead, but I was wearing socks that were way too thin, and my feet were freezing, and the back of my heels were being rubbed raw. Enter this essential purchase:
I do love me some anti-skid socks. 😉 Of course, stuffing my feet into my boots with two pairs of socks on presented a challenge when it came to boot removal, but hey, you can’t have everything.
All I can say right now is this: what a day. Mr. J is for the books. He e-mailed me a project, which I can’t actually do, since I’ve never learned how to create something like that from scratch. But, fine, I’ll give it a shot. I went about as far as I could go with it, then I showed it to a co-worker.
See, Mr. J doesn’t really know what to do either. So he told me to have this co-worker check it, and then to show it to him [Mr. J]. To make a long story short, this co-worker helped me fix it up, and according to him, now it looks fine. Along comes Mr. J, printout in hand, wanting to know, “What’s this? Why is that there?” Uhhh… because [my co-worker] told me to put it there?! “Oh, okay, if he said it should be that way…”
Tried this today:
Also definitely not worth three bucks. But I wonder how I can make those “soy crisps” so that I can replicate this sort of bar… anyone!?
So, yeah, about that citrus thing. Like I said, I really can’t eat too much of it. Between repeating yesterday’s breakfast…
…after which I was in agony, you’d think I would know better than to include pineapple with dinner.
But, you see, I found a package of pineapple tidbits in my basement the other day. And it expired in November. So I’ve been trying to use it up quickly, but the remaining two cups will just have to wait.
And since I’m in the citrus spirit, this fit right in.
Orange and cream yogurt (pretty much the only flavored yogurt I now like) and a toasted, crumbled orange cranberry mini muffin. (See what I mean when I say that after going into my freezer, things tend to overstay their welcome?! It’s like a bottomless pit in there.)
And since I seem to be somewhat of a Muffin Monster of late:
It’s a banana protein muffin! (Plain protein powder, mashed banana, egg white, Truvia, baking powder, cinnamon, and banana extract.)
Before I segue into some severe verbal vomit, I must show you what I found today.
That would be the post office I was seeking yesterday.
Okay, so, here is my dilemma. I’m sure you are familiar with the adage “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and dinner like a pauper.” I feel like with me, that is totally reversed. I probably consume at least two-thirds of my daily calories after I get home from work. Which doesn’t sound so terrible, until you consider that I am awake for about five hours then, as opposed to the twelve hours prior. And I find that it’s physically uncomfortable for me to eat right before bed, so it’s really less than five hours.
This is a problem for several reasons. I won’t go into them too much, because that would take forever, but I feel like it’s partly coming from a disordered perspective (the “saving my calories” thing, and not wanting to eat in public places). And as much as I find it uncomfortable to go to sleep on a full stomach, it’s equally uncomfortable to eat a lot in one sitting! This has been bugging me for a while, though, so I really need to resolve the issue. And that ramble probably made no sense, but I’ll just call it a “stream of consciousness” and leave it at that.
Random question: is there someone you know whom everyone seems to absolutely adore, but you absolutely can’t stand? I know of a few people who just strike me as so… fake, I guess, but because everyone else seems to think they’re the greatest thing since sliced bread, I feel I’m kind of insane for having a different opinion, like I’m the problem.
So, to recap, three questions:
- How do I create “soy crisps”?
- How to solve this “king / pauper” thing with minimal hassle?
- Do you not love someone everyone else seems to adore?
As for the New Year… well, I guess my vacation is tomorrow. So this is what I did today before I left work:
“New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.”
