This week is the final deadline for the yearbook. I was at school most of the day Saturday and all day on Memorial Day. I've been here since 9:00 this morning, and I hope to finish before 7:00 tonight so I can join my family for a swim. I'm typing a quick blog while I eat my lunch. I packed lamb, parsnips, and butternut squash. The other teachers are across the hall at an in service meeting. If most of them could see what I choose for lunch instead of joining them at a nearby restaurant, they would be astonished. The kindergarten teacher is a Type O and follows the Blood Type Diet. I saw her with the book last fall, and we've had a couple of good conversations. Both librarians are Type As. They naturally tend toward vegetarianism, and when they read the Type A Food and Beverage guides they felt affirmed.
I never get enough sleep during deadlines, and I always feel guilty about the things that go undone at home. But I have felt really energetic during all three deadlines this year, and I know it is because of the BTD. I pack lots of beneficial food, and stop for frequent snacks. On Saturday I found a major mistake on one of the pages. I felt panic set in, and I wanted something to eat - NOW! I grabbed a bag of walnuts and raisins, and started munching as I pulled out the picture files and started to rework the page. One nice thing about walnuts is that they don't smudge pictures! By the time the walnuts were gone, the crisis was resolved.
