I don’t know what’s up with me today. I just cannot focus. Working from home is always an adventure, especially with regard to what gets done over the course of the day, but I’m usually really productive. I make a list every afternoon for the next day and almost always check everything off of it. Today, however, it seems like every little thing is distracting me. Ugh. Must focus. Now.
Lunch seemed a bit unfocused today too. I started with a salad topped with chicken, risotto, and Annie’s Goddess dressing with a Babybel cheddar cheese on the side.
A little while later, I made a smoothie with a frozen banana, chocolate almond milk, Greek yogurt, and ground flaxseed meal. And, just now, I snacked on a chocolate chip cookie dough Larabar. Apparently, my appetite is all over the place this afternoon.
After lunch, I figured since I wasn’t being productive in front of my computer, I’d give myself a pedicure. (Murphy, of course, wasn’t far from the action!) All of the running I’ve been doing lately has totally destroyed my feet, which were actually pretty scary looking before I gave them some TLC.
Remember when I blogged about Ebates a few weeks ago? Well, they offered to do ANOTHER giveaway on CNC for a $100 cash prize! Yay! I love giveaways that just involve MONEY!
If you missed my previous post about Ebates, you can read it here. Basically, I said that Ebates is awesome. It’s my favorite tool for online shopping, and I always find great coupons, promo codes, and discounts on their site. But, the best part about Ebates is that you get cash back with their online rebates. It might sound too good to be true, but it’s totally legit. [Disclosure: the Ebates link is a referral link, so I get points if you sign up– just do you know!]
To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is sign up for Ebates and leave a comment on this post saying that you’re a new member. If you’re already an Ebates member, just leave a comment saying so. I’ll randomly pick a winner on Friday morning and verify with Ebates that the winner is a member. Ebates will then send the winner a check for $100 (or send it through PayPal, if you prefer). Simple as that.
Mal and I are having dinner with his cousin and her fiancÃ© in the South End tonight. I’m excited! I love the South End!
My plan for the rest of the afternoon: two solid, focused hours of work and then prettying myself for our double date! See ya!
I just joined ebates. Thanks.
Joined! I think I may have heard of Ebates before but I’d never checked it out. Always looking for ways to save money!
Oh man, it can be so hard to NOT get pulled in…ohhh, I know know… 437698364982740967 different directions when you work mostly out of your home. I usually have at least one day a week where I’m just hopelessly unproductive, despite my best intentions.
I love the south end too – Toro is my fave! Mmmm tapas…
ps. I joined ebates during your last giveaway but wanted to ‘officially’ enter this one – meant to with my previous comment but got distracted thinking about restaurants in the south end.
Haha Murphy. It’s sort of a game I play in your posts: Find Murphy in the unlikely spot. <3
