Sunday Night

It's 11:50pm as I start this and tomorrow is my first day back to work after 11 days off. The dread is so thick in this room, it's hard to see the opposite wall. Don't get me wrong, I like my job. But who wouldn't rather be on Christmas vacation, especially while your kid is 4? That is exponentially more enjoyable than any job.

I spent 5 hours in the kitchen tonight cooking and prepping food for the week. I think I mentioned in a previous post that I've found this is the key to staying on track with good food choices. I did good today! All of this week's breakfasts, lunches and snacks are made, and I made too much dinner a couple of times so that we'd have some leftovers going into the new week. Since we will all be adjusting to being back to work/school, I wanted to make this as easy on myself as possible. Otherwise I will end up in a drive thru or calling for pizza. And that is NOT what I want to do, either for my budget or my health.

Tomorrow night, I hope to have enough time to write about our imminent vacation - it'll be the first time I've been on an airplane in at least five years...

If I fall asleep right now I'll get 5-1/2 hours of sleep. Not enough. That's my cue to say goodnight.
