First of all, judging by the comments on my camping recap yesterday, there are quite a few tent-camping haters out there! This was interesting to me, but I guess growing up in the middle of nowhere will make you bug and weird-animal-noise-immune (but not spider immune…blechhh).
Even when my parents weren’t camping, I would usually set up a tent on our property in the summer and have camp-outs with my friends, so maybe this is why tents don’t bother me. I actually prefer camping to sassy hotel stays, because you don’t have to worry about what you’re wearing and what you look like, and not showering for two days (or five) is A-okay.
(My hair is wet from swimming…which is almost like showering, only more fun!)
Thoughts like this make me feel like I would be an excellent candidate for Survivor, because I think I could handle the elements. But then I remember that whole not-eating thang, and what happens to me when I get too hungry…and I’m pretty sure I’d be voted off immediately because my hunger monster would make a HUGE appearance and piss everyone off. I’d be the person sneaking beef jerky, and hoarding rice, for sure.
‘Cause I like to eat, and I like it a LOT.
Shmanyways, after two days of lounging on a beach with no worries, I was sad to be back to the grind at work today. Luckily I brought along
a slave my brother to help me tackle the back-burner of my to-do list!
I usually bring him into my office at least once while he’s visiting…he actually likes it! He thinks my office is fun (he’s correct), and he really likes my coworkers (because they are awesome).
I didn’t give him anything too terrible to do. He mostly got to upload a bunch of pictures from my organization’s spring championships to our Facebook page, so definitely a step-up from toilet-cleaning or anything weird like that. And he works at McDonalds, so I think hanging around the office is a nice break for him, and makes him feel like a big bad grown-up.
I didn’t even make him be my own personal assistant, and actually fetched my own iced coffee from Timmy HoHo’s this afternoon. But he paid (what, I forgot my money).
I also introduced him to Druxy’s at lunchtime (and I paid!), and he was a big fan.
He ordered a turkey sandwich with a side potato salad (he said both were amazing), while I stayed with my usual and ordered a giant (but this is actually a small!) Druxy’s salad with all the toppings I could handle.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million times more, I love Druxy’s salads. They are truly the best.
After work I dropped Eric off at my Dad’s so they could have some quality man-time, and headed home to make myself dinner. Andreezy’s class was switched to tonight instead of tomorrow night, so for dinna I was on my own.
What’s a WIAW day without breakfast for dinner?
It seems to be the theme of Wednesday’s.
Andreezy taught me his art of cooking over-easy eggs, and though I haven’t quite mastered it as well as him, I think I did a pretty good job.
And here’s breakfast, too.
Whole wheat waffles topped with peanut butter and Andmo’s G-ma’s delicious strawberry preserves. An unpictured banana (because I eat a banana at least once a day) served as a side to this.
And now I am off to watch the Bachelorette, since I missed it on Monday! I have successfully made it through two days without seeing who doesn’t get a rose, and I’m hoping it is not JP or Ben, my two faves! I plan on squeezing in a run a little later as well.
Have a great night!
What is your least-favourite work task?
Mine is updating our lists of past champions. I don’t know why, but I dread doing this!
