Really, I am quite glad this work week is over. I did not cover myself in glory this week. Here is my score card:
Nights I cooked dinner - 0
Nights I ate in my car via a drive through - 2
Nights hubs ordered take out - 1
Nights we ate in a restaurant - 1
Days I also ate breakfast via a drive through - 3
Nights I have no recollection of what we ate - 1
As I said, not exactly domestic goddess material. I think in the great struggle for my time and energy career trumped out wife life this week. Sadly that also means career trumped out health, nutrition, exercise, sleep, sanity etc. Not exactly healthy! It was always going to be a huge week since we lost the Friday and Monday to Easter but didn't lose any of the work! Blah. Enough moaning.
This weekend I am going to make a menu plan, do a super grocery shop (after pitching all the items I bought last week and did not cook or eat) and plan a wonderful week ahead!
I ran some errands this morning and made my way to Starbucks. We love Starbucks. I mean we luuuurrve Starbucks. There used to be one in our town but it closed. I wept. Quite literally.
When we were in New York we had Starbucks every day. In Washington we stayed at the Hyatt with a Starbucks in the lobby! Of course in Boston hubs switched side and became a Dunkin Donuts guy (as is the New England way) but I stayed true to Starbucks.
So today I drove to a neighbouring town for some Starbucks. It is 10km away. Is that weird? Too far for Starbucks? I was halfway there to go to a particular pharmacy anyway....so it is pretty sensible....
I got a mocha frappacino since we are still having summery weather. Still. Warm. Here.
I also got us some coffee for us to brew at home. I got Breakfast Blend and Cafe Verona.
Surely waking up to fresh brewed Starbucks at home will inspire me to eat a proper breakfast in my house that does not involve a hash brown, to take my vitamins and to pack a proper lunch? Right? Here's hoping!
It might be paranoia but I am sure the breakfast drive through lady recognizes my voice....
