Moving Day

No, I haven’t got a new home. I spent most of my work day moving from one office to another. It did give me a chance to go through alot of the crap in my desk – I had files from 2006 that really, I didn’t need to be holding on to anymore. I think I was at the shredder for 45 min getting rid of stuff! I haven’t fully got my office set up yet, as I just didn’t have time at the end of the day, nor did I have the motivation. At least my computer is set up so I can get work done Monday morning.

Breakfast this morning was pretty simple, because I need to do some grocery shopping. I’m out of milk, and now juice! BAH! I toasted up a whole wheat English muffin, and topped it with peanut butter and raspberry jam. I enjoyed it with the last few drops of Happy Planet Mango Peach Party.

Lunch was again something suitable for the roasty toasty weather out there – salad. I threw together a Mexi-inspired salad with red leaf lettuce, corn, cucumber, carrot, and black beans.

I brought along salsa & sour cream as dressing, and a little cheddar for the top 🙂

Then there was my favourite summer fruit combo – honeydew melon and strawberries.

And some plain cottage cheese to round out my work time eats.

When lunch time rolled around, I was totally not feeling the salad. I just kept thinking, ugh, I don’t want salad, it’s not going to taste good – I should go get some take out instead. But I didn’t really want to spend the money on take out, so I dressed up the salad and ate it anyways. And you know, it tasted great. I don’t know why my brain was trying to tell me it wouldn’t taste good or be satisfying. I was into it this morning when I made it, and once I started eating it, all was good.

I passed on staying at work late to have drinks out on our top deck – my stomach is STILL not good, and figured that wouldn’t help anything for sure. Before you lecture me on not getting it checked out – I called my doctor’s office this morning to make an appointment. Unfortunately, I can’t get in to see him until June 15th. ARGH. They did tell me he is working the walk in clinic on Thursday next week, so if I really want to come in sooner, I can see him then. We’ll see how it’s going, and then I’ll decide.

I also talked to my landlords when I got home to give them the heads up that I’ll be moving mid August, and they are cool with me only paying for the half of the month that I will be here, which is great. Probably helps that I’ve never been late on my rent, bounced a cheque, and been here for over 4 years.

There was even a surprise waiting for me on my doorstep when I got home 😀 I love surprises!

Krista was going to hook me up with the Stash Coconut Mango tea you see there on the right, but when I saw the size of the box she sent, I knew there had to be more in there. She surprised me with some maple coated pecans, and homemade Banana Rhubarb Muffins! Check them out.

I put those babies in the fridge right away, because I don’t want any muffin mold like K had on her muffins 😉 I bet you can guess what my evening snack might consist of! Thanks for the surprises Krista 😀

I think I’m going to head to the gym early, and have dinner when I get home so I can just chill for the rest of the evening. I have to get up early tomorrow, as I’m going to renew my First Aid training in the morning. See you later!

    Sorry your tummy still is yucky 😦 Have you tried OTC antacids? I hope you can get seen in a walk-in clinic if it’s still doing bad.

    That package looks great, especially the muffins and the pecans! Yum 😀

    Have a great night!

    Office moving is no fun. We had to do that in December of all months.

    Glad you ended up enjoying that salad because it looks superb!

    Hehe…so happy you got the treats. I was starting to get antsy about it getting there on time. Enjoy the muffins….I’ll be revealing the location of the recipe in my post tonight!
