I expected proofs from yearbook deadline 3 to arrive early next week. So, I planned to have final deadline pages ready to go to the publisher on Thursday. Proofs came in early. Once proofs arrive, I have 3 days to make corrections and return them, or the publisher can void my delivery date. Yesterday I arrived at school faced with a double deadline.
Not only had my scheduling plans gone awry, but I didn't plan well for the BTD. I packed a good lunch and a good snack. But by 4:00 I had finished the proofs and all of my food. I still had deadline pages to get ready for a meeting this morning. I love my job, and I don't mind working late. But working late and hungry is not fun!
I finished the pages about 12:15 a.m. I had my grocery list in the car, but it was too late to shop. When I got home it was too late for dinner. I ate some leftover parsnips and some prunes and went to sleep.
There was not much food in the house for healthy breakfasts and lunches! My husband had juice and cereal. My daughter had a smoothie and a protein bar. I had frozen cherries and canned applesauce in my nut and seed mix.
I opened a can of vegetable soup for my husband's lunch. I packed it with cornbread, celery and carrot sticks and radishes. I packed my daughter a peanut butter sandwich on Ezekiel bread and applesauce. For myself I found a sweet potato in the back of the refrigerator. Hurray for frozen beef patties and frozen spinach. I fixed myself a very beneficial lunch.
Today's approval meeting is over. I have 2-3 hours of revisions to be ready for my final meeting with the principal tomorrow. I have almonds and raisins for an afternoon snack. My plan - finish up about 4:00, stop at the grocery store on the way home, and cook a delightful Type O and A supper for tonight. I hope today's plan works out better than yesterday's.
