All day today we expected some sort of wicked nor’easter (aka “a big snow storm”) and tons of schools and workplaces closed early – including Mal’s school. Well, it’s just about 5:30 PM and still NO SNOW. I’m not complaining one bit, but, man, the weather people were really confused this time. Or maybe we’re all just scared from the last few snow storms? Let’s just say, it’s been a LONG winter. Anyway…
I started my morning like I often do: Waking up before the sun to tackle some work, iced coffee, getting myself ready, mom duty, dropping Quinn off at school, and then hitting up CrossFit for a workout. Did you happen to notice that I didn’t mention breakfast in there? YA, I KNOW. I actually FORGOT to eat breakfast this morning. People, that never, ever happens to me. I’m not someone who just forgets to eat, but, clearly, it’s possible.
During the warm-up at CrossFit, my stomach started to grumble and immediately thought: Oh, crap, I never ate breakfast. It ended up being totally fine, but I can honestly say I haven’t taken too many (any?) 9:00 AM classes on an empty stomach. Related: If I work out at the 5:15 AM class, I don’t typically eat anything, but I FOR SURE eat something if it’s 9:00 AM. Well, I’m glad to know I’ll survive! 🙂 I know it seems like I’m making a big deal about this, but I just never forget to eat. I live to eat.
After CrossFit, I joined a couple of girlfriends for manicures at the Gel Polish Bar next door. It was such a nice mid-week treat and my nails desperately needed some love before the fashion show tomorrow night! 🙂 FYI: My nail color is Taupe-less Beach from OPI.
On the drive home and while showering/making my lunch, I listened to a great podcast about GMOs, Glyphosate, and healing the gut – super interesting!
After that, I got right to work – and I had every intention on spending the rest of the day glued to my computer. Clearly. My work-from-home outfit was ON POINT.
Mal’s school ended up having a half day because of the “potential” snow, so he called me to see if I wanted to meet him at Scarlet Oak Tavern for a drink. Obviously, I couldn’t turn down the invite, so I took Murphy for a quick walk and then prettied myself to be seen in public. A big THANK YOU to “hair boogers” for making my hair look presentable! 🙂
After our impromptu “day date,” I headed to CVS to pick up a prescription and then grab Quinn from school. (Side note about the prescription: I’ve literally had a cough/phlegm thing going on for more than a year now. I’ve tried EVERYTHING to get rid of it, and I’m starting to think it’s a side effect of the Entyvio. Any other Entyvio people in the same boat with respiratory issues? I’m so OVER IT.)
Back at home, we received a fun surprise from the nice people at Quinn Snacks. The founder started the company to clean up snacks for her own son, Quinn, so, of course, we’re all about their products. They even sent us some cute “Quinn” stickers, which Qman was super excited about! 🙂
Question of the Day
Do you ever forget to eat? Do you “eat to live” or “live to eat”?
