I got some eggs this week too Miranda- they're something I don't always have on hand. Funny to see you had some last night, and (some) ice cream.


Sending on some {anti-stress} vibes!

Well the cappuccinos were in teh morning and late afternoon - so I did manage to sleep like a baby last night! I think I've been drinking more coffee than usual and I seem to have built up my caffeine tolerance again!! LOL

I am still not doing very well with my schedule. Things seem to be very hectic, and Matt is bringing home kids I don't necessarily want hanging around when I'm not there, so that means I have to race home after my full-time job, double check on my house, then race out to work again for my part-time job. I'm getting behind in my housework, I'm having my bathroom renovated, and I'm trying to see Geoff at least once a week and I'm leaving for Calgary this weekend.


I figure I'm actually doing okay all things considered. Geez, I could easily be on to the hard booze at this point. LOL

Miranda- what's your schedule again? Is there a way of having perhaps a main meal earlier in the day on the busy ones, and maybe soup/sandwich later??


Looks like you may need to pick up some fruit ;-)
