So what if:
-I have not meal prepped
ate worth a damn in a little over 2 weeks. We were traveling eating our way through Arkansas for a little over one week, being introduced to Jack in the Box at The Stanfields, and now we are in the *smack in the face* “you are back to the real world on steroids known as December and have not made a meal plan nor have you been to the grocery store” mode. We are not living off fast food, which is a plus and a change for us from past behavior. We are cleaning out the freezer of various left over soups I have made and frozen over the past couple of months and then winging it for dinner each night until Friday.
-I am have not worked out during this time either. I am now battling a head cold from hell, which has served up an excuse. I feel it is legitimate, but it is an excuse nonetheless. I don’t know how someone of you manage to workout when you are sick. Much props to you. I am sitting here with lips chapped like Tom Hanks from “Castaway”, raw and runny nose, sinus drainage that makes me want to hurl just sitting in my recliner, and a sore throat that feels like I gargled with fiberglass. I barely have it in me to exist, let alone workout. As soon as this clears the least little bit, I am hitting the G-Y-M.
-Closing the month out at work is one of the most fun parts of my job. As stressful as it can be, when I get to compile the past months data and update my reports, analyze how we did, play with charts in Excel…I get giddy. The only thing better is year end. My little dork self is already plotting some new reports for year end stats.
-I have maximized my Free 2-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime to the point they will probably charge me more than the standard price to renew next year. I try to not make a bunch of small orders, but with the prices changing so drastically from day to day online, I am finding myself placing an order nearly weekly this time of year.
-I have become that parent searching high and low for a specific gift for my child. This year it is the FurReal Friends Kitty for Tink. She said she wanted Santa to bring her a “kitty cat.” Well she is not getting a real one. Sorry cat people. We are dog people, and we have three of those. I
my bank account am maxed out on real life pets. Well for a minute, everyone and their brother was out of them or had them for well over $50. I finally found one at Toys-R-Us…but not at the one 5 minutes from my house. Tim will have to be making the 1 hour round trip to do his Santa duties and pick that puppy…er kitty up because it was not available to be shipped.
-I will be driving 4 hours round trip to listen to 15 minutes of Tim’s music. His dissertation is being premiered tomorrow night in Bloomington, and like the good supportive wife that I am, I will make the trek to hear the culmination of 13 years of hard work and dedication.
Oh wait…I just got it…drive 4 hours to hear a 15 minute song…payback for the errands I make him drive all over Kentucky to complete…well played Timberly…well played.
