I think I woke up feeling like P Diddy….or Mase

18 Mar

It’s funny how a good night’s sleep can help. Operation Nyquil was a success last night! I can’t remember the last time I was in bed before 11P but that changed last night and I feel wonderful today. I definitely need to work on getting to bed earlier if it is going to give me this much energy. It’s funny because in college I could run on four hours of sleep, run around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, work, party til no end, go to sleep and do it all over again. I wish I could go back to those days sometimes (especially the cheap $300/month rent I paid!)

 I got into work today and Stinkalicious was out today!! That just made my day even better than it was already going on a good night’s sleep. Safe to say, Stinkalicious is the most annoying co-worker I have ever had. They will be copied on an email that doesn’t involve them and instead of just hitting “delete” , they call the person who sent the email to tell them not to copy them. Personally, if I was the person, I would keep copying them b/c I am a brat like that 🙂 But that along with horrible personal hygiene, the fact that they do not do a good job, always asking for help with their (maybe due to the six smoke breaks a day they take?) and not carrying their weight on the team, makes them not my favorite co-worker. So it’s a stink free day and like McDonalds, I’m lovin it!

I was going to have just greek yogurt and granola for breakfast but needed something with a little more umph so went with oats, strawberries, flax, unsweetened coconut with a dallop of Oikos Honey greek yogurt

AKA Heaven

Another super busy day for me which again, made time fly. Thumbs up to that!

I snacked on Brothers All Natural Asian Pear Crisps

I liked these so much more than the apple flavored ones I tried the other day. These were a lot sweeter and had more flavor so it was perfect for my sweet tooth.

#1 Thing to make me feel old today:

I had to explain to a co-worker what a slap bracelet is. He is in his mid-twenties and American so I was baffled on how he didn’t know this.

 I may have emailed him a video on how to work a slap bracelet. God, I love being snarky.

Lunch was great! Jimmy John’s was offering $1 subs from 11A to 3P but I walked down there and the line was around the corner and did not have the patience to wait in line for a cheap sub. I went to Showmars and grabbed a Chicken Salad Pita with french fries

LOVE ketchup!! And meal served with some form of a pickle, is A-OK in my book.

I took the late bus home and wanted to nap but just couldn’t fall asleep.  There is a Starbucks at my bus stop so I decided to stop in and get an iced coffee

Starbucks makes me happy 🙂

Enter #2 thing to make me feel old today:

It was so nice out, I put down my windows and was rolling through the parking lot with my cd player blaring. Was it blaring something cool or hip? 

  Oh no, it was blaring Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney “The Girl is Mine”

I felt really old and really dorky.

Since it was 70, sunny and perfect out, it was a great evening to take Lincoln for a long walk. We went on the greenway for 45 minutes and he had the opportunity to socialize with many dogs, big and small. Poor Lincoln, everyone thinks he is a puppy whenever we go out and when I tell them he is three years old, people are shocked. But he is almost up to the double digits in weight-so go Lincoln!

By the time we got back, it was 7P and I was famished! I had leftover veggie crumbles and black beans from the other night so went with tacos with avocado, onion, salsa, jalapenos and greek yogurt

Fan-flippin-tabulous!! I was enjoying my tacos and watching Inside Edition and heard about the whole Jesse James/Sandra Bullock drama. I did not see that one coming–they seem so happy and in love.

I need to catch up on all the NCAA basketball going on!! I did not have one minute today to catch up on the upsets but I need to see how my picks are going. I am more of a NCAA football girl but am really excited about basketball this yr since WVU is doing so well!


Oh— If you are near a Rita’s Italian Ice, they are giving out free Italian ice on Saturday in celebration of the first day of spring!

Thanks everyone for your encouraging words from my post yesterday. I wasn’t trying to be Debbie Downer or anything but sometimes we all need to vent, right? I am a big believer in everything happens for a reason and I know I will get through this and make in work (of course I’m saying this in  a Tim Gunn voice 🙂 )

Just wanted to say thanks again—One more day to go!!!

    I totally remember slap bracelets! I feel like I was in 6th or 7th grade when they were popular, which makes me old 🙂 And I love Rita’s is my absolute favorite. Only they didn’t have any in Boston when I lived there and I think the closest one to me in NC is 45 minutes away 😦

    Oh snap bracelets! I remember those! Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve thought about them.

    I agree that the Sandra Bullock thing came out of nowhere! So did Kate Winslet and her husband. So sad!

    Thanks for spreading the word about my giveaway!
