Break Begins

Did you know that this was my last day before spring break begins?  Of course not, I didn’t tell you.  In fact, I was so tired this week that I kept forgetting about it, but then I was very happy every time I remembered.  We are doing something fun for break, but I’ll tell you more about that later because right now I want to get in bed.

I mixed things up and packed breakfast this morning.  Stonyfield Chocolate Greek Yogurt.


I ate on the walk from my car to the hospital.

Lunch was salad leftovers.  When I made our dinners last night I went ahead and made four bowls at once – his & hers lunch and dinner.


My maple vinaigrette dressing was so good.

I also packed a Cascadian Farm Oats & Honey Crunchy Granola Bar (a free sample).


And I drank a coffee with creamer in the afternoon.


I had some really interesting patients today; lots of tube feeds, which I love.

When I got home I snacked on some BBQ Smart Fries.


Looking back I feel like I ate (more than) enough food today, but I was so flipping hungry this afternoon.  A friend and I had plans for dinner and I could not have been more excited when she called me to go.

First though, we walked our dogs and had a drink.


The Honeycrisp Apple Shock Top is good, but not quite as good as I was expecting.

We headed out aimlessly down Elmwood and thankfully my friend thought of the “The Place” for dinner because I probably would have wandered down to Allentown!


My foodie co-worker has been raving about The Place’s buffalo chicken mac and cheese for weeks and I knew what I was going to get before I even sat down.


I was definitely hungry – I ate almost half of that skillet full of mac and cheese!


I thought the dish was ok, not all that exciting, but Adam polished off my leftovers in a matter of minutes and declared that we have to go back immediately, so apparently it were a hit with him.

After dinner my friend and I walked back up Elmwood (it felt so nice to take a walk!) to meet the rest of our group for drinks at Mezza.  I am totally kicking myself that I didn’t get a photo of all of us, but I did manage a shot of my amaretto sour.


I’m an embarrassment.  And I’m pretty sure the (cute) bartender thought I was special because I ordered a diet coke for my 2nd round and he refilled my glass free-of-charge at least three times.  I basically wanted to move in.

I stopped at Starbucks on the way home for something warm to drink while I wrote this post.


Tall/toffee nut/black tea/skim latte.

Adam and his friends are in the middle of a poker game in the living room but I’ve got to fold… myself into bed.

My goodnight gift to you?  Shots of the dog chillaxing.
