In other food news, I am in a total cooking slump. My dinners have been terrible. I haven't made gross food or anything like that, I'm just out of ideas. I am tired of everything I cook. I could live a long time and not eat any more pasta, it's the go to when we're lazy, I am so sick of it. We're having my in-laws over for dinner this weekend and I have no idea what to cook. Heck, I don't even know what to cook for dinner tonight. I'm considering a bowl of Special K Red Berry. Wait, my husband expects real food for dinner.
We have a rampant flu bug at the school where I work. That means I stay in my office, hiding from the germs and only drink bottled water (the water fountain might kill me). I hate buying bottled water. I feel like a terrible person every time I do it. I usually just fill up a cup at the water fountain. And I love drinking water. It's pretty much all I drink. But I feel so guilty drinking bottled water that I don't drink hardly anything at work and then I have to drink like a gallon when I get home. It's ridiculous. I almost stopped at the gas station on my way to work and got a Sierra Mist with a pump of cherry syrup. Right now I wish I had. I wonder how long I need to stay at work before I can reasonably run out for a drink. My bottle of water from yesterday tastes like old water and I didn't bring another one.
That is one thing I absolutely love about my job -- the flexibility in what I do. For the most part, I make my own schedule while I'm at work. Sure I have to be here at a certain time in the mornings but once I'm here, it's all me. Usually. Sure there are things that have to be done. But I can usually do them while I listen to music. And with my shoes off under my desk. And since I work with kids it gives me an excuse to decorate my office with fun colorful stuff. And animal print fabric on my bulletin board. Hooray. It's pretty amazing.
